"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Wasn't there a kid, maybe 30 years ago, who launched himself in a lawnchair tied to helium balloons, no motor or any of that shit, a BB gun for altitude control?
Much consternation was thrown and I was the only one to think, "What a hero."
Then again, if I'm going to throw my life into the wind, I want it to be for more than a self worshipping thrill.
Yeah, I think you're right about the kid, and "hero" is definitely the word.
No. Nope. Nuh uh. Not ever. What is wrong with these people?
My worst nightmares almost always involve heights of some kind, so that gives you a pretty good idea as to why this stuff doesn't appeal to me.
I think I read somewhere that there's a fear gene; maybe some folks were born without it. I believe I may have a few extra.
Adrenaline junkies are insane by definition.
Everybody's an adventurer until something goes wrong. Then you're just a splat of raspberry jam on the landscape.
