View Full Version : I just cheated Death (Final Destination 6?)

That thing about your life flashing before your eyes is bull. That happens after you don't die apparently.

Who knew?

So now I have to stay away from sharp objects, elevators, highways, cars, construction sites, ladders, fire escapes, lottery winners, hospitals, water faucets, fire extinguishers, cafes, windows, doors, and Ali Larter.

Well I might take a chance with Ali Larter...

Congratulations?

27-01-12, 15:06
Well with all the paperwork I have to do now, I'm not sure it was good luck.

Sir Croft
27-01-12, 15:07
What happened, exactly? Because you can't just create a thread on how you cheated death and not tell what happened. :p

Like, yes. Don't leave us hanging, Mr. Draco-san. It's not nice.

I rolled a truck on an icy road. I'm sore as hell, but no serious injury.

I'll have pics later.

Draco
27-01-12, 15:09
Well I'm beginning to think I am... I should have been in critical condition or worse, but I walked away from it.

Woah, good to hear you're alright, Draco! Slipping on ice while driving a car is one thing, but I can only imagine how horrifying it would be to lose control of one giantass truck.

Creepy. Glad you're alright. I nearly drowned once, it's not a nice feeling being absolutely sure you're going to die. :( But I guess in a car accident, everything happens so fast that you don't even have time to think that.

OOO What an insult. He's banned but your still throwing petty disses at him. What a life you got there. Must be real exciting; informing your online 'friends' right after you almost get yourself killed, and making a career out of insulting someone you don't even know because it makes you cool in your little digital *circle* of 'friends'. Hoooraaa! you deserve a medal for the most interesting man of the year!

Somebodies in a bad mood. Hopefully my avatar will cheer things up. :p

Glad to see you're OK, though, Draco. :) I skid on ice once on a downhill slope on a road...that moment when you realise suddenly you're out of control really does shock you.

Find out who would've died after you, though, then kill him/her so that you can rest in peace (not in that way, obviously). Or just forget the whole thing as this thread is based on a joke anyway. :D

But man you rolled a truck and lived, that's a pretty awesome story to be able to tell people now. I'm kinda jealous.

I'll leave out the part where I screamed like a little girl when I tell it though.

I bestow upon you the TRF bad-ass badge of 2012.

Seriously though, good you're not seriously injured.

Draco
27-01-12, 20:21
I just found out the whole thing cost me my job. I hope it won't cost me any future jobs...

larafan25
27-01-12, 20:22
****, what was your job, if you don't mind me asking?

Draco
27-01-12, 20:22
Driving trucks up in the Bakken oilfields.

larafan25
27-01-12, 20:26
Oh, that makes sense.

But ...you didn't lose it over some sort of lack of trust in your skills did you? Because that would seem unfair. :/

Draco
27-01-12, 20:30
I was not told the reason, but I assume it was decided that the accident was my fault.

larafan25
27-01-12, 20:33
Well that's not fair, there wasn't even some kind of investigation?

Sir Croft
27-01-12, 20:34
^That sucks, man. Hope you get a new job pretty soon.
Ooooh.

Well...I'd try to steer clear of another truck driving job if I were you, I'd be scared ****less anyways. :/

Unfair dismissal much? Are you part of a union? I would take action if it was me.

I wasn't throwing sticks or stones, just stating facts. An insult is an exaggeration with intent to hurt. but whatever keep my name in your mouth. You guys always have it there, must love the taste don'tcha? :D I seriously wanted to know if that was the first thing he did. But he decided to be snappy and throw a personal insult and here you come like captain save a hoe, giving one medicine and a different one to another even though they have the same thing. Just because he almost died doesn't mean you have to give him crazy neck. :rolleyes:

t-raider26
29-01-12, 08:20
Why are you so bitter though?

leglion
29-01-12, 08:34
It wasn't a fact. It was an assumption, and a stupid one at that. Did you honestly think he crawled out of the windshield, sat on the ground beside his overturned truck, and created a thread? It was a snarky comment that was unnecessary.

Your comprehension skills are just lovely considering I wasn't even referring to that. And yes, that's the way I imagined it but I gave him some credit by asking and not just assuming he's forum obsessed. So no, it wasn't a "snarky" remark. It was a genuine inquiry that he took the wrong way.

t-raider26
29-01-12, 08:40
My comprehension skills are fine, which is why I edited my comment minutes ago. But either way, your comment was unnecessary. If you truly believed that the first thing he did was create this thread, then you obviously aren't very bright. That "genuine inquiry" was just plain stupid.

Second of all, do you need a hug? Were you not held enough as a child? The rude way you've been talking to people throughout this thread is totally uncalled for. Stop being such a ****.

Could people stop having a dig at leglion, please?
Yes, his initial post (and the following ones, actually) in this thread were not exactly a valuable contribution, but by referring to that fact and bickering about it again and again, members are not really making things any better.
Leglion, by now you should know not to derail threads with constant bickering. See you in a week.

Draco, I am glad to hear that you escaped seemingly unscathed. Judging by the pictures you are one very lucky guy.
Any idea what you are going to do next, job-wise?

Hadnt really moved per se, was just working up there with plans to make it an official relocation.

Yeah, it was intense and I am lucky to be alive. I've decided to talk to a lawyer, but beyond that I'm not sure yet. I was toying with the idea of being an ice road trucker, however.

Just checked the pictures! :eek:
Did you punch your way out through the windshield?

I wish I could say I did, but my hands would be a bloody mess of flesh and bones if I had. Used a combination of my boots, a hammer, and the Sheriff's nightstick.
