Deepen discussion in English : what is the craziest thing you ever did ?

Hello everyone,

For those who are looking for deepen discussion in english, i decided to create this conversation. So tell me what is your greatest experience you ever did or the thing that you will want to do one day.

One of the craziest thing that I've done was in Washington 4 years ago. I was there for a student trip with my master's degree classmate and our amazing director. A morning she made us a big surprise and brought us in front of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building ! We were all speechless ! It was like a to be a kid again ! We visited the FBI ! We had a conference with the FBI director and after a demonstration of gunshots from FBI agent who learned us how to hold a gun and shoot with it. Can you imagine ? I shooted with an handgun with FBI agents ! Few people could experience such a thing and I did it. I realized how lucky I was.

Your turn now !

What a cool story! Thank you for sharing! I am afraid my story is very boring in comparison. I climbed the stairs of the Helsinki Olympic Stadium tower (72 metres!). I am horribly afraid of heights, so I was very proud of myself. I am by no means an athletic person, so it was also a great test for my tiny muscles! :)

I have tried sharp-shooting once and was actually rather good at it! I think my average shot was a 9.2. There is something fantastic about focusing on a shot, the way you leave the surrounding world outside. :)

Your story is fantastic and not boring at all, you were very brave by fighting your biggest fear ! Congrats ! You know, I'm not confortable as well with height : not afraid to be in top of buildings or eiffel tower for exemple but I'll never be able to do bungee-jumping or skydiving jump !

I think I should fight my other fears as well. I could start by holding a snake! I am absolutely terrified of snakes. I keep having nightmares about adders. :)

I've already held a snake and it was surprisingly soft ! I"m not terrified by snakes, rats or spider but my phobia is bees, wasps and hornets ! I hate them ! When I was a child, I got bitten by bees swarm and since then I'm terrified as soon as I see them

Yikes! That sounds pretty traumatising. I do not like wasps and hornets because they are so unpredictable but bees are OK. I can easily let one hover next to my face without worrying about being stung. :)
