■Class discussion: Why do some people risk their lives to participate in a sport? Do you find “extreme” sports exciting? Why or why not? Would you be willing to risk your life to participate in a sport? Have you ever done so? Is it irresponsible to put rescue workers and others at risk by engaging in dangerous behavior? Should a person be forced pay the cost of their own rescue if they take unnecessary risks or ignore safety rules? Do you think the possibility of thousands of dollars in fines could deter thrill-seeking risk takers?
