    What is the most physically dangerous thing you have done by choice? Preferably, for fun or entertainment.

    Rookie. :tongueout:

    Didn't think about that because I don't consider that "dangerous". HOWEVER, if that should be considered dangerous -- then 168mph on a state road on an '06 CBR1000RR. :whistling:

    Switched places with the driver. As he climbed out onto the roof, I slid over. Then it was my turn. While the car was moving BTW.

    Went out onto the ledge of the hotel Picadilly in NYC on the 25th floor to get into my room.

    Played bumper tag/cat & mouse with a friend in our cars.

    Ok. Maybe not dangerous with either one...but somewhat foolish to do.

    Ha!

    Reminds me of a trip to Myrtle Beach that was chaperoned (sp).

    In order to go undetected, I climed down the outside railings and over a room while about 4-5 stories up.

    The things we used to do for tail. :rofl:

    I did this on a sailboat while sailing in the gulf. Used our rescue rope to drag me behind the boat as if I was waterskiing(without skis). Thinking back, that was very stupid considering the amount of jellyfish I saw float by me, and I was basically a big piece of bait for a shark. Being that it was a sailboat it would have taken forever to turn back around to get me if something had happened.

    It was at least good practice on what to do in case we actually had someone fall overboard.

    Sky diving once, chased a suspect through the center of town at speeds over 100mph and confronted an armed suspect. Take your pic. I'll also second getting behind the wheel between the ages 15-18. I did some stupid things that I won't repeat here. Thank God I survived.

    Are you sure your friends were not shark fishing while you were "skiing"?

    It was during normal daylight hours and the traffic was not light. Especially when you consider how people drive around here.

    Riding on the roof of a car back in 1976. One of my friends came within a hairs width of getting killed that night.
