Yes, the fact that I had quoted you means not necessarily that I disagree but that what I am saying is related with what you have posted

I never had any wish to climb mountains but raced motorcycles that some consider without much ground a dangerous activity, at least no living threatening but I would very much prefer to make a dangerous "sport" (if I like it) one that I can control and manage risks then to risk sailing in water infested with pirates where everything has to do with luck and I cannot control anything.

I never trusted luck
