OK, I'm going to be the ass that condones his "wreckless" behavior just because I know there's got to be some thrill seekers out there that understand his need for an adrenaline rush. We all need it but it varies greatly in degree from person to person. I watch people jump out of helicopters with flying squirrel suits on and no parachute; would I do it? Hell no! But I used to make a hobby of hunting and catching rattlesnakes by hand, why? Purely for the rush. I watch people free climb Half Dome; would you do it? Hell no! It's a death wish! Each person has to make his own decision after counting the cost. I for one will not be criticizing his decision ; it's his and his alone to make even if I think it's madness. My wife thinks the same thing when I push my Harley down the highway at 100 mph at 63 years old. It's men (and women) like Chris that have the same kind of intestinal fortitude that it takes to be a special forces sniper behind enemy lines. I thank God for people that are wired like this, because in many ways these "shark hunters" rise to the occasion when called to go where others dare not.
There's a very fine line between brave and stupid!
