This is a question Near Death Experiences II

Freddie Woo says: I was once caught right in the middle of in an early morning high-speed 30-car pile-up on the M3, but emerged from the chaos in the only car not to have suffered a dent. My trousers told a different story, and learned that you *do* empty your bowels as Death's icy grip reaches out for you. Tell us about your audition for the Final Destination films.

Had a good few of these, mostly motorcycle related.
Probably the most memorable was having my front tyre blow out after hitting a smashed bottle at 140mph+. German motorway, before you ask. I highsided the bike trying to save it and somehow came out of that unscathed, then slid down the road (thank the lord for leathers; if you're gonna lose skin on the tarmac, make sure it's not yours) watching the crash barriers getting inexorably closer. My feet against the barrier stopped me, at approximately the same time I realised that I now had 170kg of originally expensive metal and plastic chasing me. The bike itself was going end-over-end and somehow managed to bounce over me, the rear wheel clipped my shoulder.

When it's not your time, its not your time.

No Otters were harmed.

I'm not in to motorcycles for one good reason
I will push it to far and kill myself. Also, I think they are nothing more than noise pollution, which is why I decided not to get redneck pipes on my truck. I guess I'm getting old.

That is the best comment about survived accidents

I feel the same way - when a lot younger I lost control of a large car during an ill-advised overtake on a short straight section, and somehow the road had a series of curves that perfectly matched the swerving of the vehicle. I came out of the last bend in control and properly positioned. Convinced I should be dead - I was going way too fast.
