    Jumping out of an airplane.

    The movies led me to expect a big, roomy fuselage, long benches and a big door to swan dive out of.

    Reality was 3 guys stuffed in the back of what was essentially a flying Volkswagen Beetle with fly windows, a single engine Cessna, clutching their rip cords so they wouldn't deploy in the close quarters, and having to step out onto a 4"x12" platform while holding onto the wing strut and waiting to be instructed to let go and fall backward and pray your skull didn't strike the tailplane (the horizontal stabilizers on the tail) on the way down.

    That and scoring those Streisand tickets.

    I spent a few days at a sci fi convention and met about ten internet friends. It was surprisingly all good and I got to meet the MSTK3 people.

    Mine was a ride called the Revelation...

    "The Revelation is one of the fastest and most exhilarating extreme rides in the world! Designed like a giant airplane propeller, the Revelation holds two to four riders comfortably in the cockpit seats at each end of its 160-foot arm. Riders take off quickly spinning up to 100 kph and experience the same intense "G" forces as fighter pilots!"

    -quote taken from http://www.pne.ca/playland/rides-games-food/rides.html

    ...I went on there with my bff, and when we got off, I think I stopped shaking after 10 minutes. (I think it only scared the hell out of me because it felt like it was going to fly apart)

    ^this + i wore my vibram fivefinger classics, which was a huge stupid mistake because in addition to thinking that i may fall to my death, i also thought i was going to lose my shoes.

    Back in highschool, I was in Grade 10, was pretty fat and self-conscious, not too popular, lay-low kinda guy.

    I was part of an improv team and we put up a funny show with skits and parodies.

    I was Michael Jackson and at somepoint I started excuting some dance moves, and then a majestic moonwalk from side to side of the 30 foot stage in front of the approx. 500 spectators.

    People went cuuuuh-rrrazay and I wasn't expecting that at all, I actually thought for a second that the stage had caught on fire or something crazy was happening.

    Huge adrenaline peak + best moment of my teenage years, BY FAR.

    skydiving was near the top but strangely enough doing a trapeze show at a resort for my sister's wedding was the biggest rush. I had just learned to jump from one trapeze to a partner on the other side earlier that day. then they asked me to be in their show that night.
    At least half the resort guests were there (I had to wear a lycra bodysuit) and climb three stories high to do a move I just learned. EEK

    The 100 foot swing at the royal gorge that swings you out over the canyon.

    Pretty good stuff.

    I live against a national forest in a canyon. Earlier this year, I was rushing to put stuff in my car because it looked like we were going to be evacuated from a fire right behind my home. I had fire trucks in front and in back of my home. The flames were several hundred feet high in some places. Thankfully, it takes a lot longer for fire to burn down hill than up hill and the winds were mild that evening.

    I have had at least 5 forest fires near me since I have lived here. The first one, we had just moved in about a month earlier. It was how I met many of my neighbors. It is looks kind of like a war zone when that happens...seeing those huge planes....one after another attack the flames.
