Right, fuck number 10. Seriously.


Number 12, fair play - I'm doing that myself at some point this year.

Reckon no. 1 would be a good craic with a safety harness.

1 would be an experience for sure.
But as you say, harnessed in.
Some of them are stupid though.
Bungee jumping into a volcano? come on.

I absolutely would swim with sharks (9) & do Chernobyl (12).
I've no fear of sharks, whales or stuff like that.

Bungee jumping into a volcano? How ridiculously exciting must your life be to come up with something like that?

I'd genuinely do them all except 9, 6 and 5 - and that's only because I can't swim :corncry:

Wub, take me to Pripyat with you :corncry:
It's a something I have to do. I'm only small and I could easily fit in your case, just cut off my legs and stitch 'em back on when we get to the other side :4:

That's not an excuse. You'd have on Scuba Gear & and an Oxygen tank. You're not going to drown.

Get in the water.

They said that at the swimming pool when I was younger, and I ended up having to be hooked out :lol:

You could always bring your fat mate to use as a flotation device.

What's wrong with Chernobyl? No one is suggesting you go around munching the earth from next to the reactor, but seeing a whole deserted town would be quality.

Fair enough, I'm sure Darlington has a similar atmosphere most of the time anyway ;)

1 doesn't seem too bad with the safety harness.

Bungee jumping into a volcano doesn't seem any more dangerous than bungee jumping anywhere else. I mean, if you're unlucky enough to jump off at the very moment an eruption occurs, you were probably going to die through some other horrible means anyway.

The mountain climbing deaths - how many people die on the M1 every year?

I'm going to hazard a guess that slightly more people use the M1 every year than climb mountains.
