I take risks that I can mitigate through practiced skills. Some people think that whitewater open canoe, scuba diving, or riding my motorcycle is risky. They are, and the first two can be deadly if one does not have the skills to assess the situation - including backing out when conditions would overmatch my skills. I have been on the edge a few times and that is why good backup is important.
Yes I am. But I never through anything to the wind because it just comes back to hit me in the head.
Calculated risk taker
It depends upon the weight of the failure of the risk. Catastrophic - no way. Nuisance - yep.
