    I don't blame you Mate.
    It's not my favourite either.
    Did this ZIp Line thing as well over a Jungle Canopy in Honduras a few years ago.
    The first one two were brutal...thought I was going to shit myself.

    I always wonder to myself "Could I die doing this?", and if the answer is "Yes, it's possible", then I tend not to get involved. Sky Diving, parachuting, bungee jumping, hot air balloons and helicopters - they're all out of bounds. Okay, I appreciate I could die walking down the street, or driving on the motorway, and I dare say one day I will actually do one or more of the above, but at the moment, none of them seem particularly sensible occupations. And don't get me on scaling super tall structures, and dangling from them with no harness....

    How about riding a unicycle on top of a 256 meter tall chimney

    Not a problem at all with the riding of the unicycle at 256m. It was the fact he then decided to hang below the chimmney about 2 mins into it. Why? That is just madness!

    Re: How big are your balls?

    In my late 20s I had some illness which never got diagnosed but left me totally fearful of heights and not being in control at high speed. I am a terrible car passenger. I didn't drive for 11 years until the start of this year when I thought I'd have a go. I avoid motorways and am uncomfortable on dual carriageways, but am learning to cope on mountain roads. It'll take time, it's all about confidence. Bombing around my own locality is straightforward and it didn't take me long to start swearing at other drivers on roundabouts. I enjoy driving.

    I can't use a ladder. I don't enjoy flying but I know I'm safe. I cannot use escalators, especially to go down. I had a panic attack going down an escalator on the tube about 10 years ago when I was on my own, got half way down and decided to make my way back up, clinging on for dear life.

    Early this year I had a panic attack walking down a very steep slope for fear of falling.

    Suffice to say there are caves where "rescue beyond this point would be impossible". The squeeze in the pic. isn't as tight as some....and the passage isn't 3/4 flooded. You know it's a bit tight/wet when the helmet is off, head on one side and breathing through the one nostril above water. The passage does look remarkably like the pics from an internal investigation though!

    Yeah, cos that's quite a normal thing to do, right!

    This plus an awkward gait when walking? Nil notice to empty the bladder? Getting forgetful? If so....see your doc.

    Good to hear. A good mate of mine has those symptoms = hydrocephalus.

    Same here. The wife of a good friend had it and it went undiscovered. It was picked up by an optician. She had several shunts and operations. She now has about 10% vision left. Spookily their daughter had the same in her mid 20s though that was diagnosed sooner and she's not been as badly affected.

    Genuinely thought this was about testicle size and the practicalities of doing activities that require a harness.

    Wasn't until I got to "rollercoaster" that I realised this couldn't be the case.

    "Interesting" fact ......in Spain, people nowadays refer to having ovaries , as well as, "cojones" when describing a courageous act. Also heard someone referring to a fabric as being "person-made" in a shop in Brizzle the other day.

    Back to the topic...... I can do the little rollercoaster in Oakwood. I could probably jump off a 10 meter high cliff edge into some water.

    I ate some 10+++ chilli the other day called "Ultra Death".

    That's about the extent of my bravery.

    Are there any submariners or ex-submariners on here. Most of us couldn't be!

    My stomach was doing cartwheels watching this, in fact I couldn’t get through it all. I used to have a great head for heights as a kid, o more though.
