Bungee Jumping in Six Flags Maryland

So I went to Six Flags in Maryland on Sunday. My buddy Eddie had free tickets from his company, and I decided to tag along with his group of friends, especially with the tickets being free. At the end of the trip, I looked at the bungee jumping thing, and said to myself, “This is something I wanted to do sometime in life, so why not now”. I got up there, and found out that there were no lines and it only cost $15.

I backed out at the last minute, right before buying the ticket for it. I was under the thing and saw how high it really was. I guess need to reevaluate my bravery. Now looking back, I’m kicking myself in the @$$ for it.

If you require some help with the @ss-kicking, I'm sure it won't be hard to find volunteers.

If your friend Eddie was a "real friend" he would have called you a pussy until you went on that thing. That''s what good friends do for each other...

I'd re-evalute your friendship.

Yeah, but he didn't do it either. One of the reasons why it was so easy for me to say "Nah, maybe next time" was that I was the only person who wanted to do it.

I'd of had a couple drinks and come back. Liquid courage always helps.

Thanks Ana. I think "how safe it is" wasn't one of the factors taken in consideration. I was mostly scared I wouldn't have the guts to jump off the top of the metal beam at the time.
