Have you done it? Would you do it?

I don't think I would because I am a wuss. :redface:

If you have done it, how was it?

Hell no.

I remember your recent thread about skydiving and I said I'd do that. But bungee jumping just seems really, really dangerous. I wouldn't say that I'm terribly afraid of doing 'risky' things (I do usually have to psyche myself up, but I eventually go through with things) but I dunno. I'd just be terrified I'd end up doing something wrong and it would kill me.

Haha no. I am too frightened of doing things, I will just keep my feet on the ground.

All these "no"s. I wonder if anyone here has actually done it?

I threw my Halo games on the floor and jumped over them.

Being a Kiwi, it's only right that I've been bungee jumping! It's a really crazy feeling, you get sensations you never expect. From videos, it looks like the jumper gets jerked about violently, but in reality the deceleration is so gentle that it's hard to tell when you've stopped falling and are on the way back up. As you start ascending again, you realise your head feels like it's about to explode because all the blood's rushed to it.

I did a lot of bungee jump in Skyrim though. Just without the bungee. Does that counts? :bigsmile:

That's really weird! I never knew that about the deceleration thing.

I've heard it makes your spine separate briefly.

And add the blood rush thing...

Big ole NOPE

Yeah, the more I think about this, the more I think it's not gonna happen.

Well, maybe if I was going to be given a large sum of money. Maybe.
