What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
Being the quiet person that I am, danger in my life has been minimal. Probably being lifted by a dance partner is about as dangerous as it got for me. Yawn. I'm amazed at others who seem to seek out danger though.

How about you? And roller coasters don't count.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I got married once. Does that count?

RE: What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
When I was 12 a friend and I free climbed the side of a cliff. No ropes, no safety gear, no climbing equipment, no supervision. The whole rock face was this crumbling clay/slate material and I had a few times where huge chunks of it would crumble and fall when I grabbed it. Was not the brightest idea considering the 400 foot fall onto a busy road at the base that could have resulted.

OK, that beats my jumping off the tops of sand pit cliffs. But we did do it a lot.

I've sky dived a couple of times ... SO. FUCKING. FUN. The adrenaline rush is nearly nauseating but nothing came out of any of my orifices... which, I was told, is common. Shy

I don't think I would ever do it again at this point in my life... unless it was a necessity. I'm not planning to be pushed out of a plane anytime.

I did a lot of really great and stupid shit as a kid. Looking back, I'm actually kind of surprised I survived to get to adulthood.... Consider so I could take drugs and jump out of planes.

Adult stupid shit is different. Dodgy

I was born. So far, so good but I figure it will kill me eventually.

Being Officer In Charge of a non compliant UN embargo search and seizure team and board ships that refuse to comply with UN embargo sanctions in the middle of the night by force, and fast rope down out of a helo or approach by RHIB boat at high speed from behind to board and take everyone down, ziptie, search the ship for contraband/intel and detain any wanted terrorists...

Did I mention I have acrophobia, severe fear of heights? I would hook up, cross my eyes, and force buckle my knees to drop out of the helo and fast rope down to the pitching deck of the ship below in the dead of the night.....that is how bad I wanted to be part of that team.

Three IA (Individual Augmentation)tours in Iraq was a bit tense, night OPS, building/village searches, vehicle check points, night marches, etc etc

yet you couldnt force me on a roller coaster with a gun to my head, while my 14 yo and 9 yo ride all the coasters at Busch Gardens like it is nothing lol....ah to be fearless.
