Every now and then something makes me think of these things; usually something seen on TV. As for a terrible way to go, the idea of being eaten by a Great White shark has always intimidated me. What a way to go. :yuck: When jaws came out I practically lived at the beach. Then, not long afterwards. a 20+ foot gw was caught a few miles offshore :surprised which brought a sense of reality to the whole thing; not to mention that the summer of Jaws found relatively few people in the water. It was a little eerie. Another one that bothers me is the idea of being trapped; say under a house after an earthquake. But again, having grown up in S. Cal and having lived through two major quakes [7.0 and 7.1], and many smaller ones, this possibility also had a down-home feel to it. One of my worst fears came true. I never imagined it possible that Bush or someone like him could be re-elected. Seriously. It was a devastating blow to both of us. Tsu even more than me.
