What is the biggest thrill-seeking adrenaline rush you have experienced? Can't Post

Before our trip to Las Vegas, I would have said riding some select roller coasters at King's Island and Cedar Point. Those are now a distant second to what I tried last Monday: I jumped off the 108th floor (855 feet) of the Stratosphere and landed on my feet.

The whole ride up, waiting for the jumper in front of me and the pre-jump harness safety check had my heart rate pounding away. Then the workers moved me over to the platform, I held on to bars with each hand while my toes were placed over the edge. They counted backwards from three and then I stepped off. I wasn't sure when the moment of truth arrived that I could step off, but it was surprisingly easy. The fall went by in a flash and I then found myself landing on a giant bullseye, legs a bit jelly-like. I made it.Smile

So, what story would you like to share? Skydiving, bungee jumping off the New River bridge, breaking the sound barrier in a jet, etc.?

A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.
