Anyone bungee jumped? My girlfriend and I are doing a joint one at some point before the end of April. It'll probably take me that long to talk myself into it.

For those who've done both, is it more frightening than sky diving?

I take it you haven't done one?

I've bungee jumped. It was during a college spring break, so my judgment might have been a little cloudy. Terrifying!

I haven't done skydiving. I really wanted to do it before I had kids. Now, not so much.

I'd guess that skydiving is much more scary than bungee jumping.

How do you say "Hell No!" in limey?

I've never done it. Even though it makes no sense, I think I'd rather be shoved out of an airplane wearing a parachute.

"Bollocks am I doing that."
"You can stick that up your arse."
"Sod off."

Take your pick. ;)

I skydived about eight years ago. That was bad enough but the idea of bungee jumping is somehow worse.

Take your pick. ;)I love the mileage you Imperialists get out of testicles, so I'm going with option 'A'.

And I hope you have a lovely time. Sincerely.


aaaaggggggghhhhhh!

The best way to do use A is to put an emphasis on the second syllable of bollocks. :)

Anyone bungee jumped?Suicide for indecisive people.


I suppose if I asked Why you were doing it, I'd be shown derision.

I'd be afraid of being jump number 1001 on a cord rated for 1000 jumps.

I skydived, and I won't be doing that again. Bungee jumping....nuh uh. No. Never. I saw a Ripley's Believe It Or Not episode years ago where the cord was too long, and that pretty much decided me for life. It was a very loud thump.
And then about 20 feet of bright orange rope coiled neatly on top of him: cool trick, except he was planted in the ground like a sapling.


No no no no no.




.....Of course, I'm sure you'll be fine.

Can you rework these to somehow include "bloody"? Otherwise, I'd have to go with C. Short and sweet.

I've bungee'd twice! It's awesome!! The best part is the rush you get right before you jump as you're standing there at the edge, looking down, wondering if the rope will break....then you take that step off the platform and your heart beats like crazy and your stomach tickles from the freefall. I loved it! I'd do it again! Go for it, seun!

I'll make you a deal. If I do it and succeed at not shitting myself on the way down, you have to do it again. :D

And ten minutes later when I've got my breath back, I do it again.

I've only been skydiving...I'm too afraid of being snapped around on the bungee and jacking up my neck again (I have neck/back issues...probably shouldn't have gone skydiving either...but it was fun, so who cares?). Skydiving is, I'm told, quite a bit gentler on the joints.

So...can't help ya...but have fun!! :D
