How often do you see people smoking , climbing a cliff without safety gears, eating too much fast-food or doing anything that might harm their health or even killing them. .Is this idea of safety or social isolation that pushes them to do unnecessary risks? What do you think about these people? Are you part of them? How often do you risk your life? Is it worth it?

I'm a sissy . I'm afraid of heights so there's no way you can make me jump in an airplane in mid air. Maybe in an emergency when adrenaline kicks in, i may be able to do so. I guess those people you are talking about are suffering from adrenaline overload or the lack of it. They are dare devils who are not afraid to get hurt. But i guess, those are their professions so they should take necessary precautions. And since they're professionals, they probably have given thought to what they're getting into a thousand times.

I would rather say that we're both cautious.Why to tie my head when it doesn't hurt?

A good and interesting discussion - these happenings can be seen only people who hve keen observation on their movings. I am really fond of the actions because I am also an observer. If I sit in a hotel I observe people,if I travel I observe people and on my motorcycle also while riding my eyes land on such funny occasions. All these are because of their habits only - you cannot stop or advice these people. It is they who have to rectify their habits.

People really try to put themselves at risk. Just think of it. We have so much garbage around us. So many cars. So many trees cut down. Global warming. All this are because of us. maybe it is human nature Maybe we are not really wise but too stupid that we try to kill ourselves.
