Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 11.20.44 AMAre you a survivor? Have you had a near-death experience? Have you survived a crippling disease or walked away from a potentially dangerous situation unscathed (or scathed, for that matter)? Are you an adrenaline junky that gets your kicks from death-defying adventures?
