    Hot air balloon. I was 4500 feet in the air for an hour and a half with nothing separating me from a horrifying death but a wicker basket.

    Ironically... Also hot air ballooning. I was like 10 and am very afraid of heights. I pretty much hid in the corner of the basket out of fear. The other people took pictures of me doing it to add to the group photo album, so that horrifying event is permanently memorialized in about 8 different people's vacation picture collection.

    Jumping off a cliff into a lake. It was only about 20-ish feet high. I'm terrified of heights and even more scared of forcing myself off of high places. I was 16. My brother was 12 and did it 10 times after that.

    College. Tried it for a year, never again. I'm not one of the people that college is good for, I had bad anxiety and was miserable and homesick despite going home every weekend. I never wanted to go back after the weekend.

    I joined the Army. 6 years as a Reservist was enough for me.

    Investing money in a game to get virtual items within that game. Learned my lesson with Playstation Home, I will never ever do that again.

    Doing tricks like wheelies on a motorcycle. It's fun until you realize you nearly died 10 times in the same hour by almost flipping over into oncoming traffic.

    When I was 13/14 several family members went camping and several kids brought our bikes. We went biking and found this huge hill/trail to go down and of course peer pressure made me go down the hill. It felt like I hit the bottom going 100mph. Lol needless to say it was definitely a hill that I could've been killed or seriously hurt on. One of my cousins did wipe out on it but of course I went before him. Nobody went after he did lol. I still go camping in that area and refer to it as the death hill.

    i went on this ride with an old friend of mine when we were around 14 maybe. it was called the zipper i think and it was like a mini, scary ferris wheel. you were locked in this cage, no seat belt, and it went around like a ferris wheel, but the cage you were in also spun you upside-down simultaneously. glad i faced it even though it scared me, but i'd never do it EVER again. especially cuz my phone flew out of my pocket, i lost the back of it, and my face hit the front of the cage. i had braces back then so it really hurt.

    When I first read the title I thought it was referring to something sexual...

    I really want to say flying, but I’m actually flying again next Saturday. I did it a few years ago to go to a Disney and the ride was smooth but I know I was nervous before and during. And afterwards, my ears refused to pop for like two days.

    I can't think of anything that fits. Most of the things I've done in life are "Why did I do that", and most of those are things most people wouldn't think twice about doing.

    We had one of those at my grade school's annual carnival. I never went on it, but my sister did and she hated it.

    Skateboarding. The skateboard went one way, I went the other way and it was painful.
    Snowboarding is similar but your locked into that thing. I'd be in pain by the end of day trying to snowboard. You either land on your hands and knees or butt.

    My best friends taught to me downhill ski when I was 18. That I enjoy. They had previously been trying to get me up on water skis unsuccessfully since I was age 10. Taught me to downhill ski and the very next summer I was up on water skis. Very similar principles - downhill and water skiing.
