*** "Why do people care to put limits on something especially when the sport doesn’t cause any physical or emotional damage to those that do not participate?" Quote I think about boxing - a legal sport where two people pound on each other until usually one person is so f'd and exhausted that he can't get up and fight any more. They are pretty much guaranteed to have some physical damage each time they fight. Remember when Rocky got the shit beat out of him by Apollo Creed? Boxing, as brutal as it seems to me, is completely accepted in our society. It is an all American sport, loved by many. There are rules to that sport -- something like no biting, pulling hair, kicking, or hitting below the waist...other than that knock the shit out of each other until I ring this bell. Some things will never make sense to me. This makes sense - BASE jumping good.
