    Please consider a moment of silence in behalf of my favorite restaurant.

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    was the manager of a domino's pizza. was making a deposit at the time in my office and had a girl working the front of the store for me. she came to my door and called my name and when i turned the guy put the gun in between my eyes.and it was my birthday. my life flashed before my eyes. i didn't look him in the face and while getting the deposit from me the gun went off in the ceiling and i thought he had shot the girl and was going to shoot me next. my eyes were closed and i was waiting for my bullet. but he left and was eventually caught. for about 2 months after that i could feel the guy there while i sat at my desk.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I was working nights, sleeping during the day. My 15 year old stepson had 2 friends in the house after school, against the rules. One of them was messing around with a disposable lighter that had been turned up to "turbo flame". When he flicked it the flame shot up about 2 feet and caught some decorative reeds on fire. My stepson picked up the basket they were in and was trying to run the burning reeds out the front door. His hands got burned and he dropped the basket on the living room floor, scattering the burning reeds all over.

    I remember waking up to the smoke alarm going off and loud thumps. I jump out of bed in my skivvies and open my bedroom door. In the living room I see flames. Although they were small I about crapped my pants. 3 teenaged boys are jumping up and down on the floor trying to put the reeds out. "What the..." was all I got out, as I took a deep breath of smoke that choked off any other words that could come out.

    I guess I ought to replace that carpet...

    What the hell. It's a rental house. They can take it out of my deposit.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I've had two bad scares and both was while I was in the Army serving in Vietnam. The first time was when the enemy had our platoon penned down in an open field. We were taking mortar and small arms fire. I was a medic and went to give aid to five of our men who were wounded by mortar shrapnel. I could hear bullets and shrapnel whizzing by my head as I was out in the open. God must have been watching out for me because I didn't even get a scratch out of it.

    The next time I had a bad scare was when we were wading across a rice paddy. The water was muddy and all of a sudden I stepped into a hole. I was wearing an eighty pound backpack which helped carry me under the water. I was going down for the third time when the guy behind me was able to grab my backpack and pull me out. I really thought I was a goner !

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    July, 1973. I had just graduated college and joined the Peace Corps. We were on our way to Zaire, Africa for our training and assignment and stopped in Uganda to refuel. About 10 minutes after taking off from the Uganda airport, the pilot walked back and told us that Idi Amin had threatened to send his entire jet airforce (both planes!) after us and shoot us out of the sky if we didn't return to the airport immediately! Seems the pilot made a "suspicious" turn while taking off. We turned around and when we landed at the airport, were immediately surrounded by Ugandan army troops and various large weapons of destruction. The troops invaded the plane and held us at gunpoint...and they had bunches of automatic rifles, complete with clips in place. The sounds of them chambering rounds after they boarded us was probably the second worst moment...when they pointed them at us and had a truly wild and crazy look in their eyes, kinda like they were on "something", if you know what I mean, was the #1 worst, scariest moment.

    After 9 hours in the plane, we were allowed to get off. We ended up spending 2 nights at a hotel, but with armed guards at the entrances, the gates and on the roof. Finally, we were released and sent back to the airport, but the plane had been released the day before. It took another 1/2 day to get a plane in to get us out of there. Heck of a way for a 21 year old Kajun kid to start his "Peace" Corps service!

    Hey guys. My fear is falling off a cliff when im snowboarding! It would suck to fall off a cliff when your snowboarding and almost falling 100ft down. And dieing!

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    I went diving in the Florida Keys in 1965.
    The water was very clear. I was checking out a German submarine along with 3 friends.
    All of a sudden a shadow went over me but I did not hear its engines. I looked up and saw one hell of a big shark. When I started up he started down. The closer I got to the surface the dcloser he got to me. I took off my tank and held it in front of me.
    I had a 12 gauge bang stick that was only 6 feet long. When he got within 6 feet I popped him and got out of the water. Well it seems that my friends had already gotten into the boat ahead of me and were watching everything that was going on. One of the guys took the anchor rope and dove back into the water and tired the rope around the sharks head and tried to pull him on board. There was no way so we flagged down a Sports Fishing boat and he took the rope and tried to pull the shark up but the shard was to big even for him to handle. We headed to the docks. The Sports boat must have called ahead because there was a crowd waiting on the docks.
    I never once got scrared until the pulled the shark up. It was a 14.5 foot Hammerhead and measured 37" between his eyes. He weighted over 1100 pounds and was 6' from belly to dorsel fin and that was laying on the dock. This is when the fear hit me. In fact it hit me so hard that I sold all my diving equipment including wet suit for $50.00 and swore to never go in the water over my head. It took me almost 9 years to get back into the water again. But I was and still am nevous about what I can not see what is around me.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    While in the Marine Corp at Kaneohe Bay, I had a similar expierence with a Humped Back Whale. Diving at about sixty feet and had the shadow eclipse of the sunlight. I cursed to myself about some boater not watching the dive bouys. Rolled over and there was this whale about eight or ten feet above me. That is a scary feeling until you realize what it is that is buddying up to you.

    Speaking of Kaneohe Bay and hammers... K-Bay is the worlds largest breeding ground for hammers.... It is also some GREAT diving. Nice thing about hammers is that they do not eat in their breeding ground nor do they breed in their eating grounds. Makes the bay a very safe diving area as the hammers keep most others ran off.

    Re: Most scared you've ever been?

    When I was younger and Dumber (if you can believe such a time) I tried skydiving for a while. (beautiful girl talked me into it) Don't mind the altitude, don't mind that first chute jerk. Did mind the day that the chute didn't open. I calmly pulled the safety chute which gave me a pretty nasty landing. That night I woke up crying and when we next headed out to the plane, I couldn't force myself on.
    No longer a problem but I don't skydive any more. And I don't have that girlfriend any more.

    Thanks Cyn for your remarks of my service. It means a lot to me, considering how Vietnam vets have been treated in the past.
