I'm a forester and spend most of my time in the woods, I get an adrenaline rush every time I step on a wasp/hornets nest, happens 2-3 times a day.

My first motocross race. Sitting at the gate my hands were shaking so badly I didn't think I'd have control of the clutch. At the end of the third turn I found myself in first place headed for the biggest jump on the track (one that I had never cleared before). Rather than give up first place I twisted the throttle and went for it.

Even thinking about it now I can feel the adrenaline flowing.

In 7th grade some of my friends and I were wrapping a house and all of a sudden a cop car turned on his lights and let up his siren about 50 yards from us. I immediately sprinted to an 8 foot fence 20 yards away, was over the fence in about a second, and sprinted for a quarter mile before I realized I had no idea where I was going. I have never moved that fast in all my life.

I walked by that same fence about a week later and just for the hell of it I tried to climb it. I couldn’t do it.

Adrenaline is an amazing thing.

The time that I ate the adrenal gland of a freshly killed stallion. It was fucking wild. I just about threw the corpse into the next county and then had 400 babies. I thought my heart was going to explode. Then I moved Canada about 1.5 meters <––––that way.

Riding (2001 ZX6R)

Flying (anything, but helis beat all)

For me, that's about it, usually. I don't have the money to skydive, paraglide, hang glide, race the Kawi, or anything else like that. Though foolishly running an 88ci airtank dry at 30 feet got my a little worked up once.

First time going Aussie down the tower. A BMNT assault after two days without sleep, with large quantities of smoke and simulators. One or two close calls driving. Rushing my now-ex to the hospital with contractions. The time a moron used a simulator at the wrong time, at night, and the student I was leading and I almost stepped on it. Last man on the tower, hooked myself up for an Australian, started to lean out and heard the "click" that meant I had a fatal hookup, didn't help I had a female DS belaying who didn't understand that attempting to belay me was the WRONG move.

When I was a kid we used to jump off of this old train trestle into the Buffalo River from track level, it was probably about 40 feet. About 1/2 way across it the upper part of the trestle started, the metal framework/support and all that. Way at the top there was a level we called "Fuck the Police" because someone climbed up there and spray painted "Fuck the Police" up there in huge letters. On a dare a friend and I climbed up there and jumped off. Must have been 100 feet. Our friends told us it looked like it took 5 seconds for us to hit the water.

A few years later they tore it down.

I can have an adrenaline rush any time I want. I can actually give myself a jolt. It's kind of uncomfortable, though, so I only do it if I need to stay awake while driving or something.

I haven't really done any REAL adrenaline-inducing activities. Sure, some give an adrenaline rush, but it's not like I've jumped out of a plane or fought for my life or anything.

I'm pretty sure epilepsy is uncontrollable.
