Opinion – Danger


Jared Pullen

People love to skydive, climb rocks, and other dangerous sports, but what is the reason why?

There’s always someone going out to do some new dangerous sport, whatever it may be. From bungee jumping to skydiving in crazy ways, there’s always a group who’s willing to do it for the fun. What would be the reason, however, for people to do such crazy and dangerous activities?

“More than likely, it’s the rush of adrenaline. ” says senior Troy Adkins. “When you’re about to die and you start to feel that adrenaline, it gives you a really good rush.”

In my opinion, I would have to agree with Troy, it’s the rush of adrenaline that gets you doing these sort of activities. It probably feels amazing when you’re so willing to dive out of a plane or off a bridge on a long rubber cord, just to feel this rush.
