Default where's the THRILL in flying? (read this one)

I was searching through some past articles trying to answer the above
question and came across someone who wrote this:

"I can tell you that the thrill of soloing, being THE ONLY ONE in
charge of your continued success, is the thrill of a life time"

dance related thrills. I'm currently conducting interviews with people
about their personal experiences on the web-site www.chromo11.com

to be interviewed. On the site you'll find a set of short, but
carefully crafted questions which you can download and answer at your
leisure; you'll also be able to read more about the project.

not to cut and paste bits of text after you've written it 20 times

I take time to read through past articles looking for the word
"thrill". If the user group seems to be active with people telling
interesting stories I then post my own thread to invite people to tell
me more.

I originally tried approaching individuals by email but it became very
hard and time consuming to keep track of conversations. This new
approach let's the users generate their own interest but is still
proving time consuming as (unlike you) people are still generally
reluctant to break out of the group into a a 1-to-1 conversation via

I shall persevere because when people do eventually do an interview,
they're usually very good.


(PS Going to post this on the site because it might help rectify my
