A Laugh Threatening Situation


New here? Start at the beginning.


I’m writing a book about all the times I’ve almost died. It’s called…

A Laugh Threatening Situation.

If that made you giggle even a little, then you’re gonna love it.

In the coming months, I’ll be sharing early drafts of chapters and I welcome your honest critique.

Each chapter is a short story so it doesn’t matter what order you get them in.

But to get them (before they’re published) you need to subscribe here and/or on my YouTube channel.

Together we can make A Laugh Threatening Situation less risky for a publisher.

And if you subscribe, I’ll add your name to the acknowledgments – and my Wall of Fame.

The mustache is not real, but the stories are.


Welcome to A Laugh Threatening Situation.

According to Wikipedia, only 5% of people have ever had a near-death experience.

In my life (so far) I’ve nearly died over 43 times.

I may not have floated through a tunnel of light, seen Heaven, or spoken to God every time, but over the years I have repeatedly and unintentionally proven to myself and others that you don’t have to flatline to learn life’s most important lessons.

Coming close can often do the trick. And I’ve had more close calls than three cats combined.

These include stealing bail money from cranky cops in the Carolinas, partying with 80’s rock stars on Mt. Everest, getting lost in the snowy backcountry of Japan, seeing ghosts while surfing in Costa Rica, subway muggers in New York, the entire myriad of things that can kill you in India, people with guns, bad drivers, erupting volcanoes, dodgy drug dealers, and hilarious stuff like Leukemia, to name a few.

In this life-changing book, I recount them all in harrowing and humorous detail. You will enjoy every page.

Assuming you live long enough.

The good news is humans are living longer than ever. Thanks to science, modern medicine, better diet, better health care, and autonomous vehicles.

The less good news is there are still plenty of dumb ways to die.

Part autobiography, part survival guide, A Laugh Threatening Situation will be filled with short stories and Life Pro Tips to help people learn from my many missteps, mistakes, and occasional madness. Readers will learn to navigate their lives safely and smartly.

And maybe avoid a dumb death.
