I have only ever had a passing desire to try bungee jumping. Usually I am open to it only during the most calm and tranquil moments of life. Otherwise, my common sense helps me remember that I don't enjoy sheer terror - the kind I am sure I would have when it was time to jump.
There are basically three things that keep me from bungee jumping. The first is that I think I don't like jumping off of high places. The second is a theory that I have that it would be extremely painful to have my legs ripped out of my hip sockets. Lastly is my memory of the many times that elastics from my desk have snapped when I have tried to use them to hold together little stuff - like pencils.
Needless to say, I won't be trying the following bungee variation either.
