    Got hit with an unopened can of sprite hurled out of an oncoming school bus window going bout 60. Had my window down too, luckily it hit my breather guard and didnt come threw the window or it coulda killed me. Night time, on a narrow 2 lane with nowhere to turn around for miles. Nothing i could do.

    I was hit by a truck tire and wheel in northern alberta, but it didn't get the windshield, 10 grand worth of damage though. lol

    I was riding down a country road one time in my pickup when my passenger started yelling for me to stop.
    I crammed on the brakes not knowing what was up and he jumped out and took off running back.
    There was a couple of kids hiding in the grown up fence row, that I never saw, and shot him right between the eyes with a bb gun when we passed by. lol, he did not catch up with them though. lol

    The tire that got me literally came out of the sky, I never saw it till it dropped down to windshield height. lol
    I was on a divided highway, it had to come off of a trailer going the opposite way, but I never saw it. lol

    I had one take out my drivers side door window on my volvo in the middle of the winter on a friday night.

    I wasn't about to wait 3 days (and miss two trips) for a new one to show up - so I grabbed a load the next day to where the window was in stock a couple hundred miles away and picked it up myself. Dirt bike goggles, gloves, some extra layers and all.
     
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.

    When my side window was taken out of my pickup, the next possible place to maybe get one would have been whitehorse, and it was 25 to 30 below and snowing, I stopped at wan o wan and got a piece of cardboard and cut it to fit with just a hole big enough to see my mirror.
    I found out that card board was actually warmer than glass. lol I went to anchorage and dropped the trailer I was pulling, then on to my shop in fairbanks before I replaced it. lol
     
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.

    Maybe it was a meteor. Shouldve kept the diamonds and used them to repair your truck and buy some fuel

    My bulldog attacked and bit a seagull!!
    #### thing was wrapped around ol’ Mack and before I could stop there was blood guts and feathers all over the hood and windshield!
    Had to rip it off Mack! He did not want to let it go!

    I caught a rock so big it put a nice dent in the air can next to my driver door.

    scared the hell out of me. It was like 6 am and just started the day and I was barely awake. Loud as hell.
