If you were involved in a falling accident.
Would you rather fall from a very tall tree or a very high bridge? Let's say both involved a %75 chance of survivability.

1. I have fallen from a very high tree, and it hurt like hell.
Very odd question.

I'll go with bridge. Hopefully the fall won't knock me out, and I can swim decently, so there you go.

2. Dang, how high?
I have a fear of falling. I think I'd choose tree, only because you could try to break the fall on branches or by grabbing at the trunk.

3. I can't believe I didn't break any bones or die for that matter.
Not sure how high, but I had climbed to the very tip top of the tree. I think it was an Elm tree. The branch couldn't hold me, and it broke, and I came down with it. All I had was a massive headache. No branches helped me out either!! It happens so fast and you don't really have a lot of control over your body. Or at least that is how I remember it.
