Swimming With Sharks - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I have no idea why, but every time I hear similar plans a.i. sharks, tall buildings, komodo dragons, jumping from bridges etc. I get sad.
I would not be scared at all being protected by a steel cage, but I would never do it in a first place. It just seems to me very boring, kind of like watching a horror movie.
Why people want to do things like that?

It's a chance to observe some amazingly powerful mysterious creatures up close, in their natural habitat. Cage diving is nothing like tall buildings, jumping from bridges, or whatever it is that you're suggesting people to with komodo dragons (not sure I want to know). The cage provides security that allows one to engage in an interesting and rewarding activity (diving) in a setting that otherwise might be too dangerous. In the other activities, I think the danger - faux or real - is the actual point.
