  1. That actually touches exactly on what I'm trying to say. The IDEA of jumping out of an airplane seems so absurd and incredibly intense that there is a "cool factor" associated with it. What I'm not sure of is if I actually want to do it or just be cool like James Bond.
  2. I've always been extremely enthralled with skydiving since I can remember. When I was 18 I had saved up enough money to do a tandem jump. I was unimpressed. Not that I didn't enjoy it, but it wasn't as exciting as I was hoping. In retrospect I think it might be partly due to the fact that I researched it so heavily beforehand that I knew exactly what to expect. I still find myself overly attracted to the idea of it though. I can get lost on youtube watching videos for hours. That first jump was 7 years ago, and now I'm older and can afford to actually get into. My question is, do you think I would have fun getting into it if I wasn't hooked immediately after jump 1? I'm wondering if the concept of it is overly romanticized in my mind and if in practice it isn't for me. How was everyone else's experience with first time tandem jump?
  3. I think this one is more appropriate.

    I don't know if this has been posted here before, but check it out: One of my hobbies is solving the Rubik's Cube -- really fast. There are actually championships and tournaments all over the world for it.
