I wouldn't call it "crap". It is still an experience worth taking. It
is a thrill ride which I would classify along with bungee jumping or
parachuting or maybe like climbing the sydney harbour bridge. Not
something I would refuse to do.



I call it crap. Dumb humans are just too obsessed the with thrills and
rare opportunities bull****.


Um, yeah. You say that like it's a bad thing....

(assuming I'm not missing a 'sarcasm' tag)



And it is not like it is such a good thing either. Humans are like a devolved species.



Are you saying evolution ought to select against seeking novel
experiences?
