Dark Lightning

Quote from: Bluenose on June 03, 2023, 03:38:14 AMI have never jumped out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane, or off a high place with a rubber band tied around my legs, nor have I ever hurtled down the side of a mountain at 60 mph with a couple of planks strapped to my feet...

Me either. That bungee jumping is every bit as bad for a body as skydiving. I had a vitreous separation in my right eye in '04. It's a kind of skin lining the inside of one's eyeball, like that thin "skin" just inside an eggshell. The ophthalmologist told me that the two aforementioned activities are common causes. In my case, it's brought on by a non-spherical eyeball. As for skiing, my preference for not being out in the cold on purpose precluded that activity.


Seems like good judgement to me Bluenose. Neither have I jumped from a perfectly good aeroplane nor thought that bungee jumping made any sense at all.

Different people get their rocks off in different ways. The high adventure ones have my blessing and sympathy.

Why I would risk my life trying to Summit Everest, is a question that escapes me entirely. I have done some dumb and seriously dangerous stuff so I have some patience with the ones who take risks that I would not choose to do.  To each his own.

weird how people like doing that stuff

Some people like their adrenaline highs. There are easier ways, however. One of them emergency allergy pens, for example. Full of the damned stuff. :smilenod:

Small print: No, I was not being serious and yes, I strongly advise against using epipens for adrenaline kicks.
