    Proceed at your own risk and do not go beyond this point have two very different meanings.

    Everyone has a different threshold for what they consider “stupid”. Really I think in this situation it would be more accurate to say needlessly dangerous. I watch rock climbers do what they love and would never attempt anything even close to what they do. It’s not uncommon for them to die doing what they love too. I wouldn’t call it stupid though. Photographers die taking pictures too. My point is just that if people never push the envelope of what is “safe” then it robs us of what it feels like to be alive.

    doing stupid things because you want to, doesn't make a person heroic. It merely makes them stupid.

    Its like playing in traffic.. SOME people might get their kicks off of dodging trucks, but the day they slip and fall in front of a fully loaded garbage truck and end up smeared along 3 city blocks.... they wont be heroes, they'll just be a schmear on the road

    He was almost another victim of the universe. It has a way of swallowing people whole and going about it's business as if we never existed.
