So I'm afraid of a lot of roller coasters, especially the ones that have the loops. I don't like amusement parks really.

But I'm at the point in my life where I want to do something crazy to hopefully give me a better feeling about myself and my future.

So should I go skydiving? It would be a tandem jump.


I'm thinking that I would enjoy it, doing something that most people still haven't done.

I find information easily that only like 20 people out of 3 million jumps a year die from it , but...

I can't find any statistics anywhere on how many like broken feet/legs , etc happen. That's what I'm worried about. If I die, I can live with that, since it would be a quick death. It's it's really unlikely to happen.

But I'd hate to break both my legs and have to live with that.

Thoughts?

Actually, you couldn't. Not without the help of some jumper cables and very strong smelling salts.
