    There is a law in my home country that I feel is not right. I can't tell you what it is, but I've done extensive research about it and I'm sure this law is wrong. It needs to be changed, but it probably won't anytime soon. I'm about to break this law. Doing so would help a lot...

    Did It!

    I have always had this fear of falling from a high height. So... I took a risk when I went to the Great Escape in Lake George, NY and rode the ride called The Sasquatch! It went up 192ft and dropped in 3 seconds!!!! I am now proud to say that fear is decimated!
