What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
 
Hey guys,

I don't know if you agree with me but a life without challenge and risk is not worth living.
What's the craziest thing you've ever done or the biggest risk you've ever taken?
A year ago, I gave $200 to a homeless person.

Here are crazy risk takers on wheels, OMG!

I suppose it says something about today's society when giving money to someone in need is considered crazy.

I'm working through getting my skydiving license. Most people call that crazy, but it's pretty zen for me.

I don't necessarily go out to do "crazy" things. Somehow, however, crazy situations have occurred.

As a teenager I spent a couple of summers in the early 1970's as the mate on a charter fishing boat. We hit a sand bar during a vicious, sudden squall and sprung a leak. We got back fine - we were already in the inlet - but the boat was in dry dock for a week. During that week I worked another boat that did off-shore fishing (tuna, swordfish, etc.). The boat had a 40 foot tuna tower which yours truly had to climb. I was in the tower and had just notified the captain that I had sighted sharks. In such situation you obviously move to a different fishing spot. I was climbing down when the boat was hit abeam by a large wave, and I fell into shark infested waters 100 miles off shore. I was fished out of the water within moments (yes, I was wearing my life vest), but I was pretty scared, especially since I was reading "Jaws," which was, at the time, a best-selling novel.

The boat I worked on was MUCH older, but I figured some of you landlubbers needed to see what a tuna tower was. Imagine swaying side-to-side 15 feet or more.

Nice AA. That's a great one to tell when you're in a boat drinking with friends trying to one up each other's stories :)

I literally just got back from swimming in the fountain at the university with friends. I'm not the adventurous type so I left early before the cops showed up.

The craziest thing I ever did was to make a feature film - actually 2 of them (Surviving Family & DETOURS).
But I have no regrets :)

Overdose myself on magic mushrooms. The day after I found out that I painted my room ....and myself .....dark blue.

Sounds like a cool short :)

Would you give $200 to a stranger my friend?

indietalk 09-04-2017 08:30 PM

Did you make the motorcycle video? I don't get the post.

I think giving $200 to a homeless person is commendable but not crazy unless you are also homeless or broke. Why did you think it was crazy? That may help use understand.

buscando 09-05-2017 04:31 PM

I can understand someone thinking it's crazy, Stevenson.
I'm just saying the world might be a better place if more people didn't think it was.

It's unusual, unconventional to give a lot of money to a random stranger in today's society,
the first thing many people said to me when I told them I did that was "Are you crazy!?"

The video simply shows that some bikers put their lives at risk by doing these stunts
