I was reminiscing with my BFF about high school
When we were in art class,the teacher would have us take turns being models for drawing class. We'd have to stand on a table that stood about 3 feet high,so adding on our heights,our heads were close to 9 feet in the air
This one guy,Pete was that day's model. He got up there and after a few minutes,he started to sweat and look a little pale. The teacher asked him if he was ok,he said yes.
All of a sudden,Pete just toppled over in a faint, and hit the CEMENT floor like a rock. His knees never even bent.
We all went "AWWW" in unison because we were expecting his head to be open like a split melon. He had BOUNCED when he hit the floor!
Amazingly he was completely unhurt...and very embarrassed
From then on,we sat in a chair to model :)

Sort of. A girl in my Health class in HS didn't actually pass out, but went into a seizure. It was a little frightening, but a good lesson for the rest of us. Thankfully she was okay (probably mortified after it was all said and done since she peed herself).
DS fainted at school the other day when they were practicing for their performance tomorrow. I hope he doesn't pass out in front of the whole PTA. He doesn't remember anything and details are scant.
I passed out from breathing rubbing alcohol fumes when my mom was trying to clean up my pierced ear that was infected. I walked out of the bathroom to get some air and blacked out and ran straight into the wall and went down. Came to a few seconds later feeling dizzy. I would have loved to have seen it happen.

That still gives me the shakes every time I think about it. He was on a ton of medications and wasn't even supposed to be IN the hot tub. He was supposed to be in the water exercise class in the main pool. If I hadn't stepped in front of him he'd have impaled his forehead on those hanger things.
You can't see them very well, it was these. It's a square metal peg about 2 inches in diameter with a lip about a 1/2 inch bigger.
