"The price of greatness is responsibility." -- Winston Churchill

74-It's Called "Adventure"

cherie writes: Something is wrong with my chromosome 11, and it could be dangerous. OK, maybe not dangerous, but certainly adventurous.

Thrill seekers who are more “exploratory, impulsive, fickle, excitable, quick-tempered and extravagant” may have a longer D4DG gene (which is located on chromosome 11.) It may not be fashionable anymore, but it turns out that my genes are too long.

This new scientific research begs the question: “Is my extreme risk taking biological?” Scientists say that people with an elongated D4DG gene (a gene which helps regulate dopamine) can become anything from adventure seekers to murderers. Or, they might just sell everything they own to travel the world.

Luckily there is a social club for us risk-taking adventurous souls. And you don’t even need an elongated gene to join! For more information click on: www.d4drclub.com

Cherie hang-gliding in Rio, Brazil.  I didn't have to sign one form before this guy told me to hold on as he ran off a plank protruding from a mountain.  Luckily we landed safely on the soft sandy beach below.

From the "I bet I can do that" department...the flying trapeze is really a lot easier than people think!  It is the landing that is hard (literally).
