    Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

    For me, it is flesh eating bacteria.

    I finally had a vacation, and went back in the water again, and I was not very worried, I did not have any cuts or anything to be worried about.

    I had totally forgot about this topic, but I am glad it was brought up again, because it has helped me, just reading all the comments.

    After my friend who-dey, and also my friend Dwayne died suddenly last year, I am just living my life like everyday could be my last day.

    (and no, that does not mean taking out every penny I have in the bank and going to strip clubs).

    If I die in my sleep tonight, that would suck, but it would be ok, because my loved ones would be all set as far as not having to worry about any taxes or anything due anytime soon on the rental houses.

    I am self employed, and ever since I lost who-dey and Dwayne, if a client wants me to do a job that I will not like, I say no.

    Since last November, I have not done the first job that I did not want to mess with, life is too short, I want to enjoy the next one day, or 30 years, or whatever in between before I die.

    I have had a awesome life, and I am not afraid to die.

    What scares me the most at the moment, is having strokes like Dad did, and going blind.

    Or some freak accident that cuts off my hands, and I can no longer enjoy my games (or even reach for a beer) in my final days/years.

    The world has changed in the last couple of years, and I will only dine out if the place has a outdoor patio, and while I am not scared of dining indoors, it is just not a good choice right now I think.

    And while on vacation I overcame a fear I used to have.

    Catching a sting ray while fishing.

    I did watch some YouTube videos about that stuff, and I learned a little.

    BUT!, out of everyone that was fishing, no one but me caught any sting rays, and I caught 3 of them.

    The first one I was shocked and needed help.

    The second one I was going to really try to do good, but it had swallowed the hook so I cut the line.

    The third one I was able to take the hook out, and I rubbed its belly, and it smiled at me.

    I was always afraid of sting rays, and I always thought it was nuts how some aquariums had areas to pet them, but now I would love to get back to one of those places to pet them, and I am no longer afraid of stings rays period.

    (not Steve Irwin all happy with them or anything).

    In the water I am still more afraid of flesh eating bacteria, than sharks.

    Right now the only thing that really scares me is running out of beer late at night and all of the stores are closed.

    And that is easy to prevent, just have a few 30 packs on hand at all times.

    I hope all of you have a AWESOME WEEK!

    And I hope whatever scares you the most will never happen in the first place.

    I seen a spider crawling up my shoe toward my leg while ago.

    That did not scare me, and I killed it.

    40 years ago a spider did bite me, and it was not fun.

    I had to go to the doctor and get medication.

    I am still concerned about a future shark bite, I doubt a trip to the doctor and some medication would fix that, like it did long ago with the spider bite.

    (but still, flesh eating bacteria, or going blind, are the 2 things I fear the most).

    (my Dad went blind at a age not too much older than I am now, I hope I do not inherit that).

    I wish all of us the best, it will always be something, just waiting to mess us up.

    Every one of my friends years ago got DWIs making beer runs late at night.
    The best story I've ever heard on this subject was in the Book Hells Angels by Hunter Thompson. When they sent you out for beer you better come back with beer, no matter the time or place.
    Found out you NEVER can have enough, you always run out of beer. Cases, kegs, it don't matter.

    Under water cave diving. Stuck in a crevasse, current blocking you from getting free. Lights dying as battery fades, oxygen tank depleting.
    Horrifying way to die.

    If you are in a big city. You can rent a limousine at any time. Order one with a full stocked bar. When it arrives grab the beer, pay them, and send them on their way. Unless you want to ride around.

    #3 - falling off my roof
    #2 - chopping off my fingers in the shop
    #1 - really stupid voters.

    #3 Stay off your roof
    #2 Keep your fingers away from sharp things
    #1 Sorry. Can't help you with that one.

    If your legs are broken. Hold them at right angles so you are too wide to swallow.

    They take you head first, so by the time it gets to your legs, youz fukt!

    #311 58 days ago

    And, they squeeze you to death first, so you wouldn't know it anyway.

    #312 58 days ago

    Good point Jr...however spreading your legs like a Y is not a bad idea as Lloyd mentioned. Moot as you suggested strangulation first but sure would like to see the snake cough up my body once he reached my hips.

    Recently I have heard a few news stories (could all be the same one), about a hospital worker killing people by injecting air into them. (I guess just a empty needle)? And that is pretty scary.

    But, still what scares me the most is bacteria, whether it be the flesh eating stuff, or the brain stuff, or any of that, I can just not go get in lake water or even ocean water anymore.

    Sharks are scary, but at least you can see them most of the time, and most of their bites are not fatal.

    You can not see the bacteria, you do not feel it until it is too late, and that is scary.

    Stay scared!
