Chaos444 saidWhile driving your car, do you ever just stop and go "Oh my god . . . what if my air bag just spontaneously burst out at me right now . . ."
yeah . . . this is something that happens to both me and my roommate at times
I imagine-- and then try to make peace with-- a different way I could die almost every day. I've envisioned being t-boned, head-on, a tire exploding and the car rolling several times, the gas tank randomly exploding, hitting a moose, being decapitated (along with the top of the car being sheared off) by high-tension wire strung across the road, and having the following drop on the car or through my windshield and killing me: a stray bullet, a mortar shell, a traffic light, a satellite, an airplane part, a cinder block from an overpass, and the entire overpass.
And those are just the ones I'm imagined happening while I'm in the car.
I try confronting them all in my head so that in the unlikely event they ever happen, I can't say "well, I never could have imagined that
happening, how unfair!"
