Some friends of mine are going skydiving in a little under 2 weeks. I have the opportunity to join them, but I don't know if I really want to or not. It's a relatively small jump, only about 3000 feet, and it's only $250. I'm 17, and about to go to university next year.
I'm not really the adventure seeking type, but I've also realized I've never really done anything exciting in my life. If fact, I'm generally afraid of heights; I don't want to pussy out at the last minute. I don't think I'll regret not going, since I won't know what I missed.
What would you do?

EDIT: Poll included, though it should probably read "Would you go skydiving?".

I also have hairy butt cheeks, I once shaved a letter 'W' on each cheek, so that when I bent over it spelled WoW.

I personally wouldn't. But if you are going you will have to a tandem jump (I think), where you are strapped to an experienced diver and they release the parachute. Unless you are going with some strange company that allows you to jump alone.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

DO IT. Nothing, in your life will ever parallel a drop like that.

I really don't care if I go though, and it also means I'm down $250 bucks.



It also means you'll go through one of the biggest and most exciting rushes of your life....

Or you could just buy some cocaine

I wouldn't do it. Not because I'd wuss out (although I would be pretty terrified), but because I think $250 would be better spent on something else. That's not to say don't seek adventure. It's just there are other ways of finding it. So pretty much do it if you have money you don't mind blowing, and don't if you don't.

$250 to jump out of an airplane?

Why can't you buy a Funhouse instead?

Go skydiving. Some of us don't have that luxury. I wish I could.
Imagine that feeling.
#14
I'd keep the money and spend it on books, but I am a very boring person.

3. Buy heroin for less than $100 with the money you saved
4. Get better rush than you wouldve skydiving
5. ???
6. Profit
#20
Do it.
If you don't do it now, just make sure you do it at least once in your life (unlikely if you don't decide to do it when your young).
#21
Once you get on the ground, you're gonna look up and think, "Damn, this was a moment i will remember for the rest of my life" and for the rest of the day you will be smiling thinking about it. Do it man, buying material objects is cool, but getting yourself into situations like this are the sort of moments you will cherish forever. You'll love yourself for doing it.
#22
Why should you have to pay $250 to jump out of a plane? I mean, there have to be better uses for your money.
#23
Do it, but go higher. The higher the better. Bungy jumping- also an incredible rush, I might recommend it more than skydiving.

#28
I'd do it in a heartbeat. Then again I'm not scared of heights, and love adventure and adrenaline.
#29
I don't think I could do it. I'd have to pump myself up with some pretty bitchin' music to pull it off.

I would love to go sky diving, even though I'm crazy afraid of heights. I just think that hurtling towards the ground at some fast speed would be fun.... Till I hit the ground..
#33
Yes, go. After my first jump I was watching the experienced jumpers freefall and swoop and thought, wow that would be cool. Now I have over 1300 jumps. Haven't been in a few years though, they don't do it where I live now.

It is the coolest thing after you get certified and can jump from 12,000 ft by yourself or with friends. Also after you learn its only about $20 a jump depending how high you go. I guess i spent a lot of money over the years but it was fun and I never even broke a fingernail- did have 2 cutaways though.
#35
You should go.

Would I go? Hell no. I just couldn't do it, even if I wanted.
