What is the most dangerous thing you'very ever done?

For me, the most dangerous thing was jumping on a moving truck. I was terrified but found that I still did it.

Probably when I went mining in Minecraft without torches

When I moved to another country all on my own, without my parents being there to hold my hand. I basically started a whole new chapter in my life.

When I decided it would be a good idea to go swimming at the beach just before a storm hit the coast where I lived. I still wonder today how I made it out of there alive.

I ran away from school and walked three miles to get back home. The area I was walking wasn't the safest.

I swallowed a coin and stuck a bean in my ear. Painful memories.

I decided to stay alone in my hostel after every other student ran out in the middle of the night because of an attack. I survived it though as the attacker had already left the hostel premises already as a result of the loud screams of the students.

I'm not a thrill seeker so this is a tough one. I'd probably go with the one time, in the middle of downtown Atlanta, that I ended up going down a one way street, the wrong way.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I wanted to engage in this post, but as I was sitting here trying to think of the most dangerous thing I have ever done I realized I haven't really done anything that was that dangerous in my life. Lol! :D

I work with dangerous animals, so every day is pretty dangerous to some extent, otherwise just jumping off a cliff into the sea for fun!

:oops: I stalled a car in a danger zone. I really thought nobody was going to slow down to give me the chance to get out of the shinola because Bloemfontein drivers are dangerous and aggressive. Really thought I was gonna die.

It's funny that you say this, because I was sitting here racking my brain for something dangerous but I've been living in a foreign country (Japan) for two years and never thought anything of it! :lol: I guess because Japan is so safe and I have connections here to help me out if I need it.
As for bodily harm, I'm pretty bad with kitchen knives...I'm not doing anything stupid in particular, but just bad at using them and end up cutting myself often!

Nothing really, I don't remember doing anything that is worth talking about here.
