Got beaten up from a random attack on Xmas Eve 2003. It's had a devestating effect on my life and the main reason for my depression and anxiety. I won't post details of the attack but the nurse told me when I eventually came round that it's the worst injuries she's ever seen from someone beaten up and surviving. The lad who done it got 6 months and served 3
Bounty weren't they?When travelling through Laos 20 years ago, spent a couple of days at a cheap hotel. I was on one of their plastic sun-loungers throughout the day, then around 4.00pm popped over to the pool bar with the missus for a couple of beers.
About 5 mins later a large gust of wind dislodged several large coconuts (inside their outer layer - exocarp) from the tree directly above our loungers. They smashed onto and through my lounger, right where head would have been. The whole place, mainly Laotians looked our way and were giving it 'oooooohhhh...lucky boy'
My funeral would have been class mind, as my mates would have had to make it coconut themed !!
A hefty tiling job at least.I don’t think I was anywhere near death but had whooping cough and pneumonia 2 years back. It was fucking torture, having a coughing fit seemingly every 5 minutes.
Going on a tour of the old Wembley as a kid, walking aimlessly I nearly tripped and fell into the big team bath which obviously had no water in. Reckon that might have been it or some lasting damage anyway.
Awful that mate.3 of us were unpacking a large 1500kg electrical switchboard offshore. It was top heavy and packaged incorrectly, so when we removed the side panel of wood the panel toppled out onto my mate, pinning him against another container and killing him instantly. I had been standing where he was 10 seconds before. The other lad who was with us thought I was under it too- I had apparently leapt backwards out of the way and was stood behind lad no. 3, I can't really remember. I had awful sleepless nights for about a week after that, probably took me about 6 month to fully get over it
