Shocking

No

That's just what alcoholics do. Facepalm

RE: What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
The first thing I can think of was shaking up cans of pop, tossing them on the grass, and hitting them with a sledge hammer. A couple of them blew up in pretty spectacular ways, but I was wearing no safety equipment whatsoever.

I worked at a restaurant where the pilot light had gone out on the water heater after closing. It filled the back with a good enough amount of gas to give everyone a headache. Once we figured it out and fixed it, I wanted to prop the door open to help vent it, but the manager said no because he was afraid we'd be robbed. I have no idea how risky it really was, but I did knowingly stick around to finish out my shift in a large room with a noticeable amount of natural gas in it.

I'm sure I've done some stupid things working on the house that are escaping me at the moment.

While I've never done this, I've knowingly gotten in the car with drunk drivers more than once.

I forgot - back at university, we would scale the cross on top of Mount Royal and alter the lights to make a symbol or a word. We did this several times until martial law made us think better of it. Dodgy

It was about the height of an eight-story building, all open girders. Of course we did this in the dead of night, usually cold and windy.

RE: What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
Dated Gary, which involved loads of drugs, alcohol, insane drug dealers, weapons, cars and motorcycles operated by people intoxicated on various things on a daily basis. Waterskiing with them almost took my life when I was being sucked under the boat. I remember blowing bubbles before they pulled me out.


A few trips to NJ with girlfriends were a bit crazy, except it was alcohol and drugs with strangers in a strange town that we were lost in most of the time.

Years of drinking and driving despite going to funerals of friends that suffered the consequences of it.



Other things that others might consider dangerous that I considered fun
White water rafting, multiple trips
Swimming with a humpback whale and her baby, sting rays, a giant barracuda, black tip reef sharks
Hang gliding on the sand dune at Kitty Hawk
Jumped out a second floor window


I feel like I've lived two different lives, the person I was between the ages of 15-25, and the person who walked away from all that with minimal scars. Other days I feel like the cat with 9 lives, and I've spent 8 of them already.

Worked in an ED where I was in a few fights and pulled countless knives and loaded guns off patients, some psych and some on meth or crack.



In high school I drove a drunk friend home... While I was tripping on shrooms and the road was dancing. I don't recommend it.

Jesus Christ people. I go away for an hour, come back and the thread is filled with wacked out, crazy stories. Laughat How are some of you even alive? Goodwithoutgod, you have a good excuse, being in the military and all but the rest of you........the rest of you should be fuckin' ashamed of yourselves. Beat_stick

Now go in the corner and think about some of the bad stuff you've done. Dodgy

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.

There have been many conversations with my best girlfriends wondering that exact thing. The short answer- I don't know, luck? Coincidence? I dunno

Surfed the North shore of Oahu with 30-40 ft waves.
What an idiotic thing to do.
NEVER again.
