    Friday OT - Hero?

    Did you ever do anything that sort of made you feel like a hero? Or did someone ever do something for you that was heroic?

    Re: Friday OT - Hero?

    I have performed the Heimlich maneuver 3 times. 1 time on my kid and twice on total strangers in a resturant. I have also did mouth to mouth on a girl at a swimming pool (indoor Waterpark) after she went under. She spit up in my mouth and ended up ok. Not really heroic just something I learned while I was in the Marines that has came in handy a few times.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    I wouldn't say my actions made me feel heroic as I think my definition of hero is elevated. I felt like I was supposed to help, supposed to step up and save a life. But proud of how I reacted ....

    There were two times ... once saving a friends life that was suicidal and another time running into the path of a runaway car (1-2 seconds to spare) to save a young person (8ish?).

    Re: Friday OT - Hero?

    Holy hell I wish my paramedic friend was on this board. Long story short, we had a drunk girlfriend at a party one night, 5 years ago refer to him as a hero. We haven't let it go since, every chance we get we remind him that he is our hero. If you happen to get emt services in Boone county from a skinny dude with beautiful long blonde hair, make sure to tell him that he's your hero.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    I saved a bunch of little girls in Rapture. It was such a heroic deed that they made a video game about me.

    Re: Friday OT - Hero?

    yes. I have done a great deal of good for a large number of people, but they mostly don't realize it.

    And no. Not when it counted for me.

    I cant decide whether or not I should eat around you. Choking seems to follow you around. =)
