    Default Skydiving (the poll version)

    I'm curious how many people here have been skydiving, or hope to do so in the future?

    I know there has been a previous thread about skydiving, but I wanted to start a poll.





    Quick anecdote:
    I remember when I was a wee lad and my oldest (ENTP) sister used to tease the rest of us with things like: suggesting that everyone has to go skydiving when they come of age. I never believed it of course, but I have been curious since then. Incidentally, the only person in my family who has actually been skydiving was my (INFJ) sister who has always seemed like the less adventurous one.

    I'm still curious but I think I'd need some peer pressure/support to do it, as I'd probably wuss out otherwise.

    Never before, but I hope to soon. Base jumping eventually... there are far too many cool things around to not be jumping off them.

    I have recently decided and insisted that what I want for my 21st birthday is to go sky-diving. But I will take bungee-jumping if it's less expensive. I will research the cheapest prices!

    I'll pressure you!

    Meanwhile option one: "I have been skydiving before and I enjoyed it" is worded incorrectly. It should read I have been skydiving before and I OMGOSHWUB it.

    there wasn't any "hell no" option so I voted for the bottom one.

    I guess it's theoretically possible that I could change my mind someday, but I doubt it. Same goes for bungee jumping, multiplied by a million. That seems horribly unpleasant. I dislike heights and I HATE the feeling of dropping. I doubt the "bouncing" would help matters at all.

    I would consider parasailing, though.

    I'm afraid of heights and I would still recommend it. Once you stop accelerating there is no falling feeling and if you would parasail then you would probably enjoy being under a parachute canopy (where is there is virtually no falling feeling either).

    It is important to point out the difference between being afraid of something and a fear of something. The former you just feel a lot of anxiety, but the later actually prevents you from functioning, and can lead to fainting etc.

    I am 'afraid of heights' (as are most normal people), but still interested in skydiving, so..

    I was thinking about skydiving the other day, literally. I would so do it. I just need a buddy for it. Or I'd like one.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    I am a big believer in Relativism and the power of Gravity.

    I go where gravity wants me to go, and right now it's staying nice and neat on this lovely piece o' ground beneath my feet. If gravity, god, and the rest of the g-universe wanted me to fly I would have been born with either two wings or at least some skin flaps in between. Until then.... *hugs and kisses ground*

    Skin flaps ain't going to cut it, you'll need a wingspan of something like 15 square metres just to glide.
    Flying would take some serious muscles and a much larger cardiovascular system. Disappointing hey?
