I shouldn't be alive. I was struck by lightning before I even left the womb(that's a fun story) and was born by c section with the umbilical cord around my neck (my mom says I didn't breathe for the 10 minutes of my life). I also almost drowned in sewage once. (also fun) I always come close to breaking bones or getting chunks taken out of me but never get more than a sprained ankle or some cuts and bruises. When I'm sick I usually get better in a day or two, and I can go years without getting sick at all. My mother thinks this is evidence I have some major role in God's plans and can't be killed or seriously injured until I've fulfilled it, and several friends of hers who claim to be psychic tell me I'm extremely important somehow. I'm not very superstitious (I do believe in the supernatural to some extent), but it does kind of freak me out when I think about it. What if I am important? What's my purpose? I know this is a rather unusual thing to post here but I just felt like sharing this with someone.

And yes, all that stuff actually happened.

Why are you wasting what little time you have left on ComicVine? You're obviously a Final Destination victim.

@scorpion2501: A superhero who can't be killed because he has some higher purpose and travels the world looking to fulfill his destiny. Chosen maybe? Thanks for the idea!

@jwwprod: What happened was my mother tried to open her front door during a lightning storm just as a bolt of lightning struck the house, so the bolt went through the door and into her. She says it blasted her back and burned her hand pretty bad. When she realized what had happened she laughed because of how silly it was that she had been struck by lightning inside her own house. She claims it was more like being on fire than being electrocuted.

Anyway, a month or so later she found out she was pregnant, and had been pregnant when struck by lightning. She didn't know whether I was going to be a boy or girl at that point, so I got the nickname Sparky. My dad says the shock kick started my brain and that's why I'm so smart. XD

@racob7: Dude! We must be spritual brothers. I fell off of my 50cc doing 40 and was good in a few days. Had a steel post fly outta a box from about six feet above ground a slammed into my knee. Almost drowned three times. Was thrown from a speeding car and had my back get ffed up in the gym..and healed even though people were telling me to see a doctor. I barely get sick. Almost never. And more ish. And no, I'm not lying.

@racob7: Seriously! I didn't want you to think I was just copy-cating. As for lighting..my house was struck three times in rooms I happened to be in and I was electrocuted trying to be Indiana Jones. No shadelier so I used our old lamp and a belt. Didn't know metal and electrical devices meant zaaapppp! Lol.I have also been slammed on concrete..like suplex style..no damage. I never really thought of it til I got older. Some a-hole beamed my right knee with a fking pad-lock from a moving car and I walked with a limp for no more then a day or two. Freaky ish dude.

Except for the lighting thing, all the stuff you mentioned happened to me as well, plus a couple of really weird concidences like yours. You can find weird conincidences in everyone's life if you look for them.

And "psychics" will always tell you that there is "something about you" or stuff like that. It's basically their job prescription.

So go out and live your normal life, that gives you the power to give it any meaning you want.

#26 Edited by KaijuKingGojira (1413 posts) - - Show Bio

Life has no purpose. We are nothing more than millions of years evolution.Wether we all live cease to exist is irrelevent.Purpose is a notion that is only relative to the person who gives it meaning.We are all just as insignificant as ants.

But it really doesn't matter if we don't have really any point to exist.We can all go on living without concern that we aren't fulfilling any kind of purpose.

We act like having a specific function is what makes us unique.But really if we were designed to fulfill a purpose then we would be equal to computers.

To quote the matrix

Morpheus: Do you believe in destiny?

Neo: No.

Morpheus: Why?

Neo: Because I like to believe that I'm in control of my own future.

Nope. You're just like everyone else, hate to break it to you. Your mom's "psychic" friends are just quacks that are telling her what she wants to hear. Every mom wants to think their kid is special.

I'm not saying you suck or anything, but just that you're human like the rest of us. Sorry to burst your bubble. :/
