Bungee jumping looks like fun.
It makes me nervous just to watch someone do it.
It certainly takes a lot of guts to jump one thousand feet above the water with only a rope tied to your legs.
It scares me just to think about it.
However, it is something I really want to do one day.
Some people think I'm crazy.
They say to jump is foolish enough, but to have to pay for it is madness.
I don't agree.
For me, to live a short and exciting life is far better than to live a long and boring one.
What do you think?
