the panache of the experience, don't you know, but not to the risk

So you'd rather watch videos of parachuting, paraskiing, hang gliding, rock climbing, practical vulcanology and such-like things than participate in them? But you'll have never lived, man! You'll never have experienced the rush of adrenaline that comes when you realize that your main chute has failed to develop, or when your legs are pinned beneath a rock fall as you explore a previously unmapped cave, or sense the fullness of life as Dawn finds you amidst the fog-shrouded trees with the seconds to your right and left as you and your adversary sight down the barrels of your pistols, or when you're fifty fathoms down with your hand trapped in a giant clam and you air running out!
