This is a question Near Death Experiences

Last time I crashed my bike, as I flew through the air towards the car in front of me not much went through my head apart from "You idiot". No tunnels, no lights to stay away from, no smiling family members beckoning to me.

Surely you've had a better near-death experience?

White box : WHITE BOX!!!!!!!!!!!!
4:30 am one Monday morning, M1 southbound near Rotherham. It's pissing down, so I am actually (for once) doing around 70-75 max. Notice a lorry stationary in the inside lane - not the hard shoulder. Pulls out, slows down a bit more, overtakes him, only to encounter a white box in the middle of "lane 2". WHITE BOX !!! WHITE BOX!!! First thoughts: washing machine, second thought, hope it's a white cardboard box. Nope. It's.....wait for it. An air conditioning unit (like in offices/shops). Hit this and destroy the bloody thing. Near death ? as it turns out no, but my very last thought before I hit it was - "Shit, I won't get to see Pete Hammill on Friday after all......"

Imagine that, my last words would have been "WHITE BOX, WHITE BOX !!!!!" in a perplexed tone of voice...

(The policeman asked "anybody hurt" - my reply ? "only if you count shitting yourself...")
