I’ve seen these before & NO I don’t need to experience it!!! Since having my stroke, if I get more than 1inch off the floor, I lose my balance. With half my body not working, I have to flip in order tp turn over & I occasionally flip myself out of my bed while attempting to turn over. Plus I have a very difficult time getting out of bed as it is & that’s with having specific anchor points to assist me in getting up!!! In my younger days, I was a thrill seeker. Now, I have NO “need” to be thrilled!!!

IF it’s your thing…ENJOY!!!

@LadyMarissa
Not my thing for sure!
Too risky!
My brother just sent that link plus more to show me what some people do for excitement!
Too adventuresome and all this for a “Like” on social media , perhaps?

Lol! How do the people in the middle of those lines even get out there? I would never do such a thing, are people really that desperate for thrills?

People are forever creative when it comes to mass stupidities. In places where the possible profits from corporate amusement parks are negligible, folks will arrange more affordable methods of risking their lives.

Is it real or photo shopped?

It looks fake. I understand if one out of millions of people extreme sports adventure kind of people do it, but

^ According to the Today Show, this is REAL. They even spoke with a few people who get their jollies from doing it!!!

@Inspired_2write I can think of many safer ways to get excited!!! ;)

It’s real. Some people are just adrenaline junkies.

I’d kind like it if I had a net.

LadyMarissa's avatar

Nets are for sissies & it takes away from the thrill of possibly dying!!!

@LadyMarissa
Nets are for people who wish to live another day.I don’t blame them for wanting to be safe.

^ I was just repeating what those interviewed had said when asked why they didn’t use a net…just in case…“Nets are for sisses” They seemed to be offended that they had even been asked.

I still have trouble believing it’s real.
