I really should be working - The Friday Five

The Friday Five is unavailable until May. She's even taken the archive offline because of some badwidth issues. But, lucky you, I found someone else who posted one that I am going to use...

1. What's the most daring thing you've ever done?
I once went face-to-face with a grizzly bear!! No, I didn't. I once chickened out on rapelling 50-feet off my high-school stadium - you think I'd really wrestle a wild animal?
It's hard to say what the most daring thing I've ever done is. I usually only take daring risks in video games.

2. What one thing would you like to try that your mother/friend/significant other would never approve of?
Storm chasing. For those of you not in Oklahoma, our television stations have teams of people who go out and chase tornados to get video for the TV station and gather data for research.

3. On a scale of 1-10, what's your risk factor? (1=never take risks, 10=it's a lifestyle)
Four. I don't take a lot of risks but I understand that sometimes you have to in order to move forward.

4. What's the best thing that's ever happened to you as a result of being bold/risky?
I gained respect from my brother. (I had a conversation with him about this a couple of weeks ago - he doesn't really remember the incident. I almost broke his nose and he doesn't remember it.)

5. ... and what's the worst?
Easter weekend I was playing blackjack in KC, split, then doubled on both of the splits. I had $40 on the table... and the dealer drew to 21. Of course, I still walked out of the casino $30 richer than when I went in.
Nobody's ever died as a result of my being bold/risky so it can't be all that bad.

Bonus question that I added...
5a. What's the one thing you'd love to do but never would?

Tell my bosses what I really think about them.
