Dear Funnyjunk,
When I was 5 years old my dad died in
the building of the 9/ 11 crash while on the
phone with me. I never got enough sleep
since then. My cousins dad and mom was
with my dad. He moved into my house with
me. He was my best friend and we spent
every night up together. When I was 13 he
was 15 and was friends with alot of bad
One night me, him, and 2 of his other
friends were at his friends house. I
didn' t knoow at the time but my cousin
and his friends sold drugs. About an
hour of us at the house. Someone
started shooting both of his friends got
shot in front of me. My cousin was
running when he was hit with a bullet
in the leg side and neck. I ran to him
and was shot in my upper back. I
blacked out instantly.
I woke up the next morning. My
cousin was in the bed next to me in the
hospital. My mom was next to me
sleeping. The doctor came in and told
me they removed the bullet and am
luck to still be alive. I stayed in the bed
4 days while my cousin Eyed next to
I stayed with him for 3 days. We
talked and stayed up together as
always. He held my hand and looked
me in the eyes one night and told me
he knew he was going to die. I told
him he' d be fine. He said "I' m sorry
Jacob." Then started to cry. He
closed his eyes and died right then. I
didn' t want to believe it, but my best
friend is gone. I rarley get any sleep.
I' m lucky to sleep for 2 hours a night
without hearing his voice and my
I want to thank you funnyjunk for
helping me through these nights.

Dad dies in a burning tower on the phone, OP gets shot and instantly blacks out, cousin gets shot in the neck and can talk, in bed next to cousin's for four days, but cousin dies in three?

Seems legit.

people black out after getting shot, they go into shock from the pain. It's possible his cousin got shot in a part of his neck where it doesnt impair speech, and he could've been out for 4 days, then 3 days after he woke up he died

They don't bleed out immediately usually. Certainly not from one or two shots due to something called adrenaline. This helps us get away from danger, so we don't actually die for sure. I know lots of people who have been shot, and a lot of times they're conscious the whole time. Also, I doubt that being on the phone with somebody as they died would cause that severe of trauma even into adolescence, eventually OP would be forced to sleep more than two hours a night, otherwise you die from exhaustion, literally.

If it didn't impair speech, then it would have hit his spine or his arteries. Basically the whole neck is very vital, unless he was shot in the muscles of the neck, in which case that isn't a kill shot. Also, if it was an artery, he wouldn't have lasted a week. All in all, this whole story just smells of ********, while some parts could be possible alone, or even some together, all the details together, coming together the way they are, is almost impossible, and it is almost certain that OP is a lying thumbwhore.

Honestly, I have a hard time believing this. If it's actually true, then sorry man, that sucks. If it's not, you are an asshole. I'm going to bet you've never seen anything die; this sounds like something you ripped from a goddamn movie. Again, if you're actually not full of ****, I apologize, but you can't expect everyone to believe you.

I can't tell if this story is true at all, feel free to thumb be down if you disagree but my gut is telling this that op is lying.

1. How does one get shot in the upper back, wheres a good chance your spine was shot, pass out to wake up the next day. Could've been alsleep for days, but one night? Unbelievable.
2. Your cousin should've died on spot, if he were shot in the neck from anywhere, he would've still died, and even if he did survive its a 1 and a million chance. Then he dies 4 days later from just passing out? Unbelievable.

A huge chance OP is lying, just for the thumbs. Reading this (and barely understanding it, sorry its the grammar :c), it feels as if I'm reading a plot of a drama movie about a teen. Again, feel free to thumb down if you disagree.

I have worked at Shands Hospital in Jacksonville,FL as a volunteer for over 3 years and I have seen countless cases of people being shot in neck/head and living.

Agree, I don't know why being shot in the back would make you pass out for a day, I mean, It would take about 20 seconds if the blood flow was intense and you would pass out from low blood, otherwise, in the spine would be fatal, and in the heart would be fatal also. Doesn't make sense.

Exactly. It doesn't make any sense at all, even if he were shot anywhere in the back it could still impact you drastically enough to be out for more then one night, and if the Spine was hit directly it could destroy the connection with the brain causing a coma, if he were lucky that is. Thanks for agreeing too.

Your back is pretty large. There's a **** ton of areas you can be shot at from the back and not even pass out from at all. Your back isn't just a spinal cord, you know.

If anything, the only unbelievable portion is that the boy knew he was going to die, said it, and then just died on the spot.

Yep. But I was referring to an area where he could get shot and pass out, thus one of the vital areas.

and yeah, that was the part that made me want to post my comment at first, Lol -thumbs you up-
