    That's a joke right?  LOL... They both appear equally risky to me. Have you tried either one Nichol? Do you plan to?

      Not me Lol my nephew has mentioned both and I was wondering which one would be safer I won't even go up in a plane

      Had to ask Nichol.  I guess we're all born for various adventures. Lol This one isn't for me.  Great question though. Thanks for making me laugh.

    For some reason bungee jumping seems more dangerous to me? Don't ask me why I feel that way haha. My mother and I went skydiving a few years back. It was a blast, definitely would recommend it.

      That's great,thanks for Answering,sometimes not doing something makes us feel as though it is more dangerous than it is.

    yeah both are risky in terms that you might fall off and hit your head onto the rock at the bottom of the sea. If accident happens, you will be meeting mr Hades!

    With skydiving you have some control over where and how you land. Even if your chute doesn't open you have a chance to save yourself by "steering" into trees or bushes that will help break your fall. With bungee cord jumping-not so much. Both are risky as equipment can fail. Both have the factor of human error. Most bungee cord jumping requires trust in the person running the show. Skydiving, you can pack your own chute and oversee your own risk to a greater degree. You can take steps to minimize the risks. Bungee cord jumping is an absolute leap of faith. If it breaks, you might survive but there is not much you can do to improve your chances or minimize your injuries.

    I'm not sure why but I would personally be more comfortable bungee jumping (I've come close to doing it in the past - probably will someday). I think maybe because you're not as high up? I also don't like being responsible for my own safety in that situation... what if I passed out and couldn't pull my chute open? That's probably highly unlikely but it freaks me out! I would rather have some piece of equipment keeping me safe that I can't screw up. :p

      The first time you skydive you have to do a "tandem" run, or in laymen's terms you have a professional strapped to you for that exact reason
