    The times I didn't die (or survived with minimal injury) and the time when my youngest brother died from leukemia.

    :rofl:

    I'm not sure. Lots of things have turned out differently than I expected, though usually have turned out well. I just don't know which is most surprising.

    Was it love or was it mania? Probably both. I wish it on desirers and doubters. And yes, lightning can strike twice, even if not in the same place.

    Is it "unexpected" that I'm not dead already (despite engaging in risky activities)? It's hard to say, since I'm still here to respond...

    White-water kayaking, technical rock climbing with no previous training, extreme skiing in Maine with too many sessions on on "boilerplate" made of man-made snow, too many sessions of "pushing the envelope" with motorcycles... I could have died dozens of times, but held on. I'll probably get hit by a pulp-truck tomorrow. I hope Duke is OK.
