50 Crazy Close Calls

Want proof that the old expression “Somebody up there likes me” is true? Look below! And while you’re at it, ponder this: the vast majority of close calls are never noticed–not even by the one who’s been saved. In fact, apart from our own efforts at self-preservation, it’s likely each of us has been saved from pain, shame, or death more times than we’ll ever know!

  3. Yes, I have survived several spectacular close calls. And like you said, Mitch, there have probably been many other close calls that I did notice. These are great!

    Lots of crazy “escapes.” Obviously, God likes Hyundais and Peugeots better than other cars!! 😉

    Weiiird… I saw about 1/3 of these, from completely different angles, on BoredPanda today. I appreciate the coin/bullet pic cause they were spread out on BP and my brain couldn’t make sense of them

  7. Yikes! Their guardian angels were quite busy except for the toothbrush guy and a few other non-life-threatening ones. They were probably on their own.

  12. These are remarkable, just amazing; all fifty of them. That creature in the toothbrush had me cringing, along with many of the other clips. I’m rather glad that the red crab got away unscathed, too – that’s the animal lover in me. A great post, Mitch.

    You’re so right, Mitch. We often take these things for granted, adding them up to “luck”.
