Have you ever gone bingee jumping? Would you? Me, I would not go bungee jumping even if someone paid me to do it. I think it is absolutely crazy to jump off an extremely high place and trust that a giant rubber-band to keep you from hitting the ground.

I would not even give it a try either.I am so afraid of heights just seeing them do this stuff can turn me dizzy . It may really look crazy but makes me wonder what people will do to put a little thrill in their life or worse take chances for something that may cost them their lives. Just an opinion, no offense to anyone who enjoys it though.

I get scared watching others jump. I hate heights too. Much safer with my feet on the ground!

i had never tried it but definitely want to try it anytime soon. its a different kind of an adrenalin compared to what i am doing as a past time. crazy as you may call these kind of a leisurely past time but i think it's absolutely fun to be hanged up several feet on the ground head first. its scary sure is, cause we dont know if the bungee is strong enough to hold on us. but if it break....then so be it bye bye world

To each their own, I guess. I guess that I just enjoy actually LIVING too much to trust my life to bunjee jumpig.

Never tried it, do not want to try it. No point is torturing your body so much. The hard jerk one gets at the end of the jump is scary. I am not scared of heights, but would rather do gliding or parajumping to get longer thrills & enjoy the beauty of nature too. For bungee jumping to be perfect the lenght & tension of the rubberized trhread tied to your legs has to be precise. There is no way i can be sure of that & thus this is not for me.

Like I said before, I would not trust that a gialnt rubberband would actually keep me safe. I will keep to the ground to enjoy nature and its beauty.

I would sky dive or bungee jump in an instant if I could. I want to because of the thrill of doing it and being able to say that yea I fell out of an airplane, I mean how cool would that be. If you aren't doing anything fun or dangerous in your life at least on occassion I dont much see the point.

I am not one that cares to tempt fate. I have told my husband many times that if I were meant to fly, I would have been born a bird. I will get on an airplane, or a rollercoaster, but I just could not bring myself to even consider jumping out into thin air, out of a plane, or off a building.

I went bungee jumping years ago, but it wasn't over a river gorge or anything. It was a "safe" bungee jump, where it was off a tower that had nets and stuff down below just to be safe. I could never do it without the net, but doing it with the net was fun. I'm actually kind of scared of heights, so it took my friends fifteen minutes to get me up the tower and ready to go. I was crying the entire way up, but I still did it, and found it so exhilarating that I went for another jump.

I wouldn't even do it with a net to catch me. I am sure you get a rush from it, but I would rather keep my feet on the ground.

Nope.....first I am afraid of heights....secondly I am getting too old to do that stuff and when I snapped back from the fall I would probably seriously hurt something that is vital to my existance!

Omg i would love to go bungee jumping one day. I love the feeling of roller coasters. But i also have to wonder about things like this tho. U know like base jumping or sky diving. lol both of those things are something that i wouldn't mind doing but wow i have no idea why i would want to do them. Is it the need for a thrill? the need for something different? idk but i always feel like i get a big enough thrill when i'm gonna try and do my taxes on my own with out help heck thats enough for me. but idk one day i might bungee jump but lol i have no idea y i wanna tho.

My husband says that he would want to do it for the rush. This is coming from a man who cannot go on rides because they make him sick!! How funny is that?
