Tonight a friend told me about a young boy who saved his pennies and then hooked up to a tether and jumped off the Stratosphere building on the Vegas strip. Base jumping. What is the allure of throwing yourself off a ledge at 1149 feet? Really?
It is curious to think about the way some people need that kind of adrenaline rush. Me? Backing out of my driveway before I have finished buckling is thrill enough.
