Sitting with some buddies smoking a cigar. For some reason I was like ‘We need to go get food now. Like right now”. We went to get some grub. Not even 5 minutes later a 107mm rocket destroyed our smoking area…
I would always walk down the hallway in the night without turning the lights on. One night I get to the end of the hallway and have a sudden urgent feeling that I need to turn the lights on.
I go all the way back to my room and turn the hallway light on and go back. Just in front of where I had decided to turn around was a huge and deadly Taipan snake making its way from one room to another across the hallway. If it had bitten me in the dark they wouldn’t have been able to get me the correct antivenom.
Yes this happened in Australia.
