    ?

    Being afraid of something is literally having a fear of it. You're just talking about degrees of the same thing.

    For a first time, you would most likely be attached to another person or static line anyways, so if you fainted your parachute would still deploy. You can't miss the ground!

    I've been thinking about going skydiving for a while but when I suggested it to 2 of my friends, one laughed for five whole minutes, and the other one said she'll come but she'll stay in the car and wait. I don't think I can do it alone as I'll probably chicken out. I alternate between anxiety and adrenaline rushes when I think about it actually.

    I went skydiving once. It was fun. The free-fall was my favorite part. Once the parachute opened, though, we were doing a bunch of spins and stuff and I got motion sickness.

    I've done sky diving in Thailand and loved it. When I get richer one day I would do it more often. Love it.

    I have a video of it on Youtube. The whole sequence is in it. Including the free fall.

    I shall upload it.

    No plans to do it; highly doubtful I ever will. I'm surprised so many people are into the idea. Yikes.

    Terrified of the feeling of falling as well, like Randomnity. If I can't handle rollercoasters, I probably can't handle skydiving. (Expecting someone to try to disprove the second sentence, while the first sentence still stands...)
