Auto Accident is no Bungee Jumping !

While both auto acci­dents and bungee jump­ing involve high-speed motion and an adren­a­line rush, the sim­i­lar­i­ties end there.

Car Accident Feels Like Bungee Bounce !

Auto acci­dents are typ­i­cal­ly unex­pect­ed, unwel­come events that can result in sig­nif­i­cant dam­age, injury, or even loss of life. Bungee jump­ing, on the oth­er hand, is a con­trolled thrill-seek­ing activ­i­ty that pro­vides a rush of excite­ment with­out the unfor­tu­nate side effects of a car crash. But hey, let’s look at the lighter side of these two heart-pump­ing experiences!

First and fore­most, you don’t wake up in the morn­ing plan­ning to have an auto acci­dent, but you might plan a bungee jump­ing excur­sion. Pic­ture this: instead of a cup of cof­fee, you’re opt­ing for a 200-foot free fall to start your day! Talk about a wake-up call!

In an auto acci­dent, your seat belt is designed to keep you safe, where­as in bungee jump­ing, the bungee cord is what keeps you from plum­met­ing to the earth. Both sit­u­a­tions involve straps and buck­les, but in bungee jump­ing, you actu­al­ly look for­ward to the moment when the cord tight­ens and jerks you back up. In an auto acci­dent, the tight­en­ing of the seat belt isn’t quite as exhil­a­rat­ing, unless you enjoy whiplash with a side of airbag.

While bungee jump­ing, you’re wear­ing a hel­met for safe­ty, and dur­ing an auto acci­dent, you’ve got a whole car around you. How­ev­er, nei­ther the hel­met nor the car guar­an­tees pro­tec­tion against embar­rass­ing shrieks or the sud­den real­iza­tion that you should have tak­en out bet­ter insurance.

Now, let’s talk about that adren­a­line rush. In both sce­nar­ios, the heart rate sky­rock­ets, and you’re like­ly to expe­ri­ence a surge of pan­ic. Bungee jump­ing, how­ev­er, pro­vides a nice pay­off in the form of an exhil­a­rat­ing, grav­i­ty-defy­ing expe­ri­ence. Auto acci­dents typ­i­cal­ly don’t offer such enjoy­able rewards, unless you count exchang­ing insur­ance infor­ma­tion as a thrilling pastime.

One more thing: after bungee jump­ing, you’re like­ly to walk away with a sense of accom­plish­ment and maybe even a com­mem­o­ra­tive t‑shirt. Fol­low­ing an auto acci­dent, you’re more like­ly to be left with a dent­ed bumper, a bro­ken head­light, and an appoint­ment with your insur­ance agent – not exact­ly the kind of sou­venirs you’d want to collect.

In con­clu­sion, while both auto acci­dents and bungee jump­ing share some sim­i­lar­i­ties – high-speed motion, adren­a­line rush, and strap­ping in for safe­ty – the dif­fer­ences are sub­stan­tial. Bungee jump­ing is a vol­un­tary, exhil­a­rat­ing expe­ri­ence that typ­i­cal­ly ends with laugh­ter and brag­ging rights. 

Auto acci­dents, on the oth­er hand, are invol­un­tary, stress­ful events that often leave a trail of dam­age in their wake. So, if giv­en a choice, take the plunge with bungee jump­ing – at least you’ll have a cool sto­ry to tell afterward!
