    Ever feel like you're in one of those Final Destination movies? I'm about to say screw this and stay in bed for a few days!

    Saturday night a really creepy guy came into my store right at closing. Looked around, but mostly up at the ceiling...and the cameras. I also had a couple friends in the store because we were going out to dinner once the shop closed. The guy left and I locked up the store. On the way back from dinner we saw all kinds of emergency vehicles, I'm not too far from a fire station so I didn't think much of it....but more on that later...

    Last night after getting home we heard noises, several loud pops. Alameda is a pretty quiet town, certainly not a violent place...but we found out this morning that the sound we heard was our neighbor being killed by her boyfreind who then killed himself!

    This morning I was almost hit in a crosswalk when a guy was mad at the driver who stopped for a few pedestrians and I and changed lanes into the oncoming traffic lane and gunned it. Never even looked and was close enough to hitting me (with me dodging to get out of the way!) that my coat was sliding along his car and he hit the backpack of a lady who was further along!

    Later today I found out that the 7-11 on the next block from my store was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night by a guy matching the exact same description as the guy from Saturday night. The cashier who was robbed had a heart attack. I called the police and gave a statement, and verified that it was the same guy when they showed me the surveilance footage.

    So....yeah...as far as i'm concerned this week is OVER I'm either invincible or doomed and I'm in no hurry to find out which...just in case :p

    Dodging bullets?

    I dunno man. The last time I checked, death (unlike bullets) can only be dodged for so long, so I'd say fap while you can & stay away from dark basements.

    Damn man! Where in Alameda do you live?

    When I was living in Berkeley my wife and I had one of these situations.

    We were leaving the Target in Albany when we hear what sounds like fireworks behind us. Two cars then fly by on the lane to the right with the second car having a guy hanging out the passenger window shooting at the first car.

    Everyone stops as the two cars speed off and the car directly behind my car has a bullet hole in the rear on the right side of the car. Luckily there wasn't anyone sitting in the passenger side of that car. Even more luckily that it wasn't our car as my wife was sitting shotgun that day.

    When I was living in Berkeley I felt that the city was being sandwiched by crime in the north from Richmond and the south from Oakland.

    Couple years ago I had a seizure while driving.
    After dodging cars for a minute or so I crashed into a gas station.

    No one else but me got hurt and the gas station didn't explode :p

    Damn! All I got is the time I witnessed the start of a shootout between three cops. Didn't wait around for the rest of it.

    A friend who was with me said he read about it later... all shots missed. It was a sherrif's deputy trying to skip town in his own patrol car after murdering or assaulting (I don't remember) his wife, and two cops that blocked the road to stop him. We were passing through on a trip home from college and just happened to see it. Scary as hell.

    Damn! In his own patrol car huh? Like that would've taken him very far! All shots missed too? I'd pay good money to see that go down!

    :jawdropper:  For your sake, let's just hope this isn't some Final Destination shit because we all know how that ends. You can only evade death for so long. Damn, my bad man, here I am sounding like the grim reaper and shit. No matter, count your lucky blessings and stay vigilant. Take care!
