    Friday QOTW! 5/3 - Biggest "OH ****!" Moment?

    Here is my Friday Question of the Week:

    What is your biggest "OH ****!" moment?

    Mine would probably have to be when I was involved in a hit and run which sent me into a center diving wall on the interstate. I was stupidly not wearing my seatbelt and when my truck flipped once, I thought that was the end of it for me.

    when I was 12, I was throwing straw bales out the shed door. I heard a buzzing sound, bees came pouring out one of the bales. Only way out was through that door. That was one of my Oh **** moments. Only got stung 10 times. So I had that going for me.

    That's just what the tire manufacturers want you to think.

    It's a conspiracy!

    Worst moment for me was coming home for Christmas, driving thru Kansas City on 435 North during rush hour getting knocked off the road into the straw covered median and doing a 180 into the grass and median wire. Good times.

    For average people sure, this was part of an advanced maneuver that, admittedly, didn't go swimmingly.

    During a college study abroad me and some friends went to a bar in London. We met some guys from Chicago and struck up a conversation. A friend of mine, who was extremely drunk, started arguing with one of the guys about whether he was really from Chicago. It seemed like a pretty harmless argument until one of the guys friends flashed a gun at us.

    that time a realized the loud angry heifer was actually a loud angry bull was pretty oh ****.

    I think oh **** moments happen pretty frequently on a farm, though.

    That's just how people from Chicago identify themselves, no big deal.

    oh I've got another one, the time I found out my brakes were failing as I came to a red light at an intersection of two four-lane roads during a tornado warning. That was fun!

    Driving down Riverside Rd many years ago on a really foggy night in my tiny Chevy Sprint, and all of sudden there was a deer in each lane of the road. I slammed on the brakes but luckily the one in my lane ran off and the one in the other lane just stood there. Otherwise it could have ended very badly.

    This could be so, but you can imagine how not tough a bunch of central Iowa, liberal arts college guys were when we saw a gun.
