Experiences In The Wild

"My child"??? What the heck?

Animal abuse is sad but animals are stupid. It's true... they're not as intelligent as us.

I respect your sentiments, but the reason why I started this thread is because of the great experiences in the wild and animals play a huge part in it, if animals were as smart as us these experiences wouldn't happen.

I would like to see how smart you are versus a group of wolves xD. Each creature has its characteristics and is guided by God. There is no idiocy in animals, but guidance. And that is one proof to the existence of God.

I just condensed at least 5-7 years worth of stuff in three paras man. Apart from that rash Talib thing I suppose most of us have such stories to tell no. Plus the embarrassing/shameful things that most ppl do in their youtful times...

 

Would you call yourself heroic?

 

 

 

nope sadly no such adventures in the wild :(

I'd hate having my wudhu broken because of an animal touching me.

 

Not much of a story here, but here goes.

 

I and two of my good friends were bored, so we decided to skip class (college) and explore an abandoned construction site. From what I saw, there seemed to be oil drilling equipment, and an artificially created lake with dirt/hardened sand cliffs surrounding it. with pipes and other things sticking out every few meters. A steep but somewhat short hill which I figure to be maybe a 9-10 foot high hill with a footpath on top was immediately opposite to a cliff. The area is roughly circular, so we decided to walk around and towards the aforementioned hill. Turns out this place is a popular hang out place for various students from high schools nearby.  Not really in the wilderness, but close to some woods and about a 4-5 minute walk away from a main road.

 

Anyway, as we're walking around and surveying the area (while taking pictures for the 'Gram) we get on the previously mentioned hill. We decide to take the hill to get back to the car. As I get on the hill, I start to experience fear due to the height I'm at. I nervously navigate the rough footpath until halfway through. Foolishly, I decide that the hill doesn't look so tough and try to run down.  I failed to run down; instead my legs failed to keep up with the momentum of the upper half of my body and I did a nosedive down and land straight on the side of my forehead, as well as my glasses. I felt very sleepy for a little bit, but I shook it off once I thought of the humiliation I'd go through if my friends noticed. I proceed to wipe the dirt off of my pants.

 

While falling, I knew about half a second in that this is not going to end well and take my phone out and death-grip it. My glasses miraculously did not break, either. Aside from a tiny scuff and scratch and sand in my phone, nothing was bad. Alhamdullilah.

The dust cloud I created was like those you see in Dragon Ball Z after someone gets punched into the ground; my silhouette slowly faded into view while I lifted my head out of a crater shaped like my cranium. (I joke here.)

 

Unfortunately my friends saw the entire thing, fall and brief moment of dust nap. They pretended I died and made a Fast and Furious-esque tribute to me on snapchat, lol.

Afterwards, we go to a KFC, eat, then we go to a walgreens and I disinfected my wounds and washed my face, and then we decide that this earns a day off of math class.

My first adventure scar is on my head. It makes me feel as if I grazed a spear while in mortal combat, lol.

edit, wow, my 555th post.

I have a fear of falling which is why I'm overly cautious sometimes.

 

This story reminded me of my friend. We had gone cycling a few months back on this forest trail. None of us are expert cyclists but we know enough to get around. So we reached this steep slope and were debating whether to continue cycling or get off and walk down when this kid of around 12-13 years of age went passed us and confidently rode off down the slope. We both looked at each other and were like shame on us for being such chickens.

 

She decided to go down first and I was to follow after as it was a narrow trail. So she goes down and the first few seconds she was okay speeding down when the bicycle hit a root and she lost control so she was smart enough to jump out as the bicycle crashed onto a tree. She literally flew out was a miracle nothing happened to her. For a split second we were in shock, then we laughed for a good 10 minutes, it was so hilarious the way she flew out and her expression on her face.

 

After that we decided not to risk on steep slopes and would walk down with the bicycle.

3. Enough of the border stories. Here's a fun thing I remember from a decade ago. A friend and I used to dress up our best and walk into any wedding reception that we could find. Full of easy confidence of youth, smiles on our faces, we would go straight to the stage and congratulate the groom warmly. 

 

Hmmm..what else...

 

You must have stood out, young males who actually seemed to want to be at a wedding.

Lol, young men very much want to be at weddings ;) at least that's how it is these days... You should see them, they are more excited about 'mehndi' function than girls.

they're there for the food

 

oh and the dance

 

let's not forget the bhangra!

 

this reminds me - i have a wedding coming up in my in-laws at the end of November. apparently, more of the boys are interested in 'preparations' than girls. what preparations? deciding what food has to be served, and the rubbish songs that need to be played.  i swear i fear for our younger  generations the way things are moving...

You should describe what weddings are like there... Maybe in another thread? ( Movies aren't usually accurate.) and why you think things are " rubbish".

To tie this into the topic....weddings can be " experiences in the wild". There are cougars and wolves...and quite a few turkeys as well.
