At the risk of selling my self short here, I describe myself as" not afraid to die",
when required by conversation. I can bolster that with relative knowledge that, I
have gone skydiving and jumped from a perfectly good airplane, the first chance
I got . Even paid extra to avoid the tandum trap.(as I call it)
Here's the thing k, I have never been and I will never be a surfer. I think back of
my younger years and shudder at how stupid I was, to have ever gone in the ocean.
I never knew how big sharks were until Jaws came out.
If you ask me Skarks are freakin monsters bra. The things we all feared as little people. To avoid monsters to me is a smart thing to do.
I will never leave the soil underfoot at present. Not by air nor by ship. Not afraid
of death, at the same time, not looking for a horribly fearful death either.
To go in the ocean where you have some visability (skindiving) I could do that with
out much fear at all. The visability factor has alot to do with it. Not being able to
see two ft. in to the water, with monsters swimming about?
Well to me that is just nutty or asking for it. I don't believe for one second we are
supposed toi be out there. This is proven as fact for me everytime someone
washes up on a beach somewhere missing a few body parts. Another thing is
just how emense and deep the ocean is. Do we know about everything that's out
there? NO! Not by a far a cry. It for me is a place that was meant only to haunt
your dreams, not your reality.
I will never get in a plane that is going over the ocean. I think people who choose to just arn't thinking straight.
There are a few people who would say this negative thinking.
There are those who call this a phobia.
I call it Good Horse sense.
I will respect all analyses.
