My short bio. The abridged version is that in 2004, while coming home from work, I was mugged in front of my apartment. It escalated quickly and the mugger pulled the trigger of the .32 he was holding, sending a round at close range through my chest, nearly hitting my heart, puncturing my diaphragm and my stomach, and collapsing my left lung. I was nearly killed, and managed to (somehow) stay conscious until I finally hit the operating table, so I remember the whole thing quite well. It was a pretty close call and has shaped my life forever. So....Ask me anything!
My Proof: http://imgur.com/a/GSnbS The best proof I could come up with, without getting a copy of the police report. Which is hard to do at 12:40am. It's a newspaper article the day after about the shooting, and you can see the surgery scar down the middle of my chest from the exploratory surgery fairly well.
EDIT: I've loved answering all these questions, but it is now very late and I must sleep. If anyone else has anything to ask I'll be sure to check back tomorrow. Thanks Reddit!
