5. Other--being a passenger with a 16-year-old driving
I was 21--read: young and stupid--and so didn't protest when our friends in a car in front of us started leading us on a wild chase on some country backroads. Yeah, that got me some shattered glass from the windshield in my lap, a mailbox WAY too up-close-and-personal with my face, and then the delayed freakout when I realized we had nearly gone over a cliff. Missed it by THAT much.

Or...watching a minivan full of daycare kids blast through a stop sign and end up in the middle of the intersection, RIGHT where my car was heading. Yeah, THAT was fun. So was turning wildly to miss them, hitting a street sign head on, totaling my car, phking up my knee, hitting the windshield with my head, and blowing half my lower lip off from the impact with the steering wheel. Good times, good times...
