It's strange for me to say this because I actually have had a long crappy history in my relationship with teachers and professors, but yeah. This teacher was the exception (who was a visiting lecturer, so he only stayed that one semester) and so was this class.
    What was the class called? (Unless it's too personal)

    Two really big things in my life

    One, it was a house fire and the first two firefighters went in. the had to leave due to running low on air but they found someone on their way out. Me and another went in to grab the kid (think he was about 16-17) we got him and pulled him out but it was to late. We worked on that kid until the chief said he was gone.

    Two, this woman was in a auto accident and we had to work on the car for sometime to get to her, and her daughter (about 4-5) the mother was fine but the kid had to be taken to the hospital. About 4 months later we get a picture of the girl and a note with it that said "she is going to have her birthday thanks to you guys. Thank you for everything you do." every man in that house was brought to tears.

    There has been other things but those two in particular really should me how fragile life is.
    "I put the fires out."
    "you made them worse."
    "worse...or better?"

    When I was a child, the man who was my role model in life died tragically. I saw his dead body at the funeral up close. I remember thinking "Someday I will be dead too. Everything must come to an end eventually, like the last page of a book." For some reason the thought didn't scare me. Ever since that day I've felt and enormous depth of appreciation for what is beyond the sum total of my existence and ever since I have been inextricably drawn to understand the echos of human nature.

    That was about 20 years ago and my life is still effected to this day. Now I create the echos instead of observing them, like the ripples from a stone skipped into a pond.

    Brought me to tears, too. Well done, man.

    I know what you mean. I like Tool for the same reason. It's really like a puzzle.

    Reading a post on this forum about 2 years ago changed my life in a way that had a flow on effect to basically every aspect of my existence, whether or not I wanted it to. An epiphany or sorts, one that took over my life. That would be one of the most profound things that I've ever experienced.

    TypoC is a strange place!

    Sex. Drugs. Music. Art. Women. Porn. Brother. Military. Abuse.

    Work with that.

    How did things change for you?
    Yes. Unfortinately. Few of them, but latest one was when my dad got diagnosed with cancer. In a minute my life changed...and for 1 year I was taking care of him so I got something like PTSD that influenced me to change to something totally opposite than me and i pick the wrong school (medicine) bc i was then last year of high school. After that I was put in envoirment that I am not built for at all, I need to study all the time, I cant do it... that's pretty much it.

    I saw someone die when I was young in a rather gruesome way. I don't really consider that personal, but it did shape the way I think of people and the world.

    And not so much personal, more of I made a decision based on how I was feeling emotionally rather than thinking of the prolonged repercussions that would follow. It didn't end very well, and I'm afraid to ever do that again.
