Is this unadventurous or is it sage advice?
I’m not talking about throwing yourself off the Derwent dam wall (which is where this is) – that surely makes a lot of sense, I mean “shattered spine” sums it up, yes – but more metaphorically.
I’m not much of a risk taker, personally, but I equally admire and pity those who are. I guess that some of them might look at me in the same way. But probably it’s more pity, right?
