Cave diving has been called the world's most hazardous sport. Would you do think?

When I was very young - and my sister was younger but bigger - she almost drown me by pushing me under waves and sitting on me. She did not understand the possible consequences (she was only 3), but it really frightened me (of course). Anyway - I am somewhat hydrophobic. I would love to cave dive - it looks really amazing - but I could never do it - I would panic in seconds.

Not even in my youth!

I tend to think that monogomy is the world's most dangerous sport, at the moment.

epp -- I think that's terrible grammar, so I can't understand the question ... I would not do cave diving, cause I'm scared of the sea

I'm not sure if cave diving is parachuting into large cavernous holes or scuba diving into underwater dens. Both could be dangerous if not approached correctly, but no more so than countless other physicall risks taken.

I can't even think about caves without feeling claustrophobic. I routinely skip the articles about caves in National Geographic because I get short of breath and uneasy. Other people may enjoy caving, but for me I would go stark raving mad in a cave.

Cave diving is not for me. I dislike enclosed spaces.

I have never been cave diving, and I haven't done a lot of dangerous sports, so I couldn't tell you.

I totally agree.

Gives me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it. But then, I'm the type who would rather have my two feet planted safely on the ground. I think it's a dangerous sport...yes.

Cave diving...yeah, it's dangerous.

Ry, 23

Sure, I think it would be fascinating to see the underwater species that live in total darkness. The hard part would be the spelunking.

Well first of all "would you do think" is not exactly a proper question. But if the question is Would I do it? Yes I probably would, I like all those extreme sports, so I'm pretty much up for anything!

I don't know much about it. It could be. It doesn't sound that dangerous but im sure there is much more to it then I know. I don't know the stats on injuries/deaths; id have to do research to say for sure and im just too lazy.

I think I'm too much of a wuss to even attempt it.

I don't even know what cave diving is. It sounds dangerous, though, I guess.
