    Is this something you'd ever consider doing? :D

    The thought absolutely terrifies me tbh... but I might give it a try. It'd certainly be a great experience.

    Nah I don't think I'm going to be doing this any time soon, unless I was getting paid a fair amount. The feeling of falling isn't fun.

    Nope nope nope xD

    Indoor skydiving looks really cool and I kinda wanna try that... But actual skydiving, never in my life. I'd be way too terrified.

    I actually have sky dived before. Funnily enough, after the initial few seconds of dropping out of the plane, it doesn't actually feel like you're falling. It just feels like you're in a super powerful wind tunnel or something.

    I'd really recommend the experience, mostly just because the view of the world from that high up is the most beautiful view I've ever seen. *_*

    I'll actually agree with shinygiratinaz! Though I've never been skydiving, and I'm not allowed to unfortunately, I always dream of doing this! I love the air and the sky, and I've seen many people skydive before. I want to join them and feel the experience and the thrill!

    However, I'll probably feel extremely nervous. If I'm afraid of petty rides for kids, then how will I fare up in the sky?

    You couldn't even pay me to do something like skydiving. I don't live for thrills; they're actually detrimental to both my physical and mental health. I get shocked very easily, which is probably another drawback (and something I'm trying to mitigate), and on top of me not being a risk-taker in any capacity whatsoever?

    No, I'm never going skydiving for any reason, ever, not without some suicidal intent.

    I really do want to experience it some day, but I think my fear of heights is going to get in the way...

    I'd do it with proper instruction and a professional there with me.

    Sometimes I think I'd be brave enough, but in total honesty, I think that's safely in the "never ever ever" list haha :P

    No way, no how, I absolutely hate flights and falling like that is too risky and I am to scared to go up in the sky like that.

    As much as I am afraid of heights, sky diving looks really fun to me. I would love to do it, regardless of my fear... Though, I may only be able to do it once, cause all I would want to do after that is be on nice... decently safe.... ground

    Funny enough, this was a discussion a friend and I had earlier this week!

    Both of us really want to go skydiving someday, but it's a problem at the moment as it's off-season. I think we plan to do it this summer though, so I'm extremely excited for it! Sure, it's terrifying. However, it's something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember, and it's very high on my bucket list :)


    I can hear you out on this, though. When I was little, I was afraid of heights like crazy (sometimes I still am). After I learned about skydiving, I thought immersion therapy would be a great effort :D

    NooooOOoo... I can barely handle the thought of public speaking or skiing, much less skydiving. I doubt I'd even want to do it if someone waved $5,000,000 in front of my face. ; ; Bravery is not one of my prominent traits. hah

    That's a thing!? Would you mind elaborating on that a little? I've never heard of that before and, outside of some sort of wind tunnel, I don't know how that would be possible.

    Yes it is! This is how I did it and you're correct. I did this yearssss ago but it was basically a glorified wind tunnel that was vertical rather than horizontal. That said, if you moved your arms or whatever you would go soaring towards the top of the tunnel they put you in. Still. It felt so great just leaning forward and oh look, you're floating~

    Broooo Sky Diving sounds rad. I think I'd go for Vegeta's indoor one though, seems much less risky. Remember, parachutes sometimes do not work.
    Anyhow, I'm a thrill junkie as long as I'm safe, so I kind of want to experience flying in the air.

    I'm a little bit afraid of heights, but skydiving does sound pretty exciting. The fear is part of the experience!

    ... I'd probably start to get second thoughts once I'm in the plane, though...

    Nope, a thousand times nope, I'm afraid of heights and even if I've gotten better going to high places, sky diving is probably gonna be a tad too much for me.
