Sky dive of course.The next question should be:Would you rather be forced to choose between skydiving or having a finger amputated or not be forced to choose between skydiving and having a finger amputated.Answer; not forced to.

I wonder if anyone here has actually sky dived or plans to. How about have a finger amputated?Chris "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them"

I would only have my pinky amputated if I was becoming a member of the Yakuza.

I've planned to sky dive but missed out on a social club activity owing to a family emergency - my friends and colleagues had a blast. I didn't miss a parascending trip, which while not quite the same thing (no jumping out of planes necessary) is a good way of testing fear of heights/trust of parachute in a fairly harmless way. My vertigo and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.I'd rather not lose a finger even if joining the Yakuza. No subtlety, that sort of statement. Tomorrow, in my experience, is usually the same day.

What a weird choice. I guess for those who are really afraid of heights the finger option might be the way to go, though. jeff
