  Writing Topic:

  >Why do you think that some people are attracted to dangerous sports or other dangerous activities? Use specific reasons and examples (from your knowledge or experience) to support your answer.

  Sample Essay (Jeenn Lee Hsieh):

  Some people are attracted to dangerous sports for reasons only they know better. What appears to us is that those can-do men and women have constantly been compelled to test how close to a nasty death they can go, defying fear and date. We would like to imagine that the daring souls are far from looking for hurting or killing themselves but actually enjoying the fun of escaping injury or death.

  How dangerous is too dangerous? From one point of view, roughly how many have been injured or dead in braving dangerous activities is a tricky subject due to limited data. From another viewpoint, all sorts of sports can be dangerous to varying degrees as at stake is a person's capability and flexibility and courage and luck. Contrary to common belief, golfing and fishing, for instance, can be just as dangerous sometimes. Occasionally, accidental deaths in playing golf because of heart attack and in being drowned while angling have been reported in local newspapers. Even as harmless as cheer-leading could be risky as well.

  However, pro-life groups are worried to such an extreme that they call for public policies to ban dangerous sports or other dangerous activities. A long blacklist has been created--base jumping, cave diving, rock climbing, car racing, off-road motorcycling, white-water surfing, skateboarding, mountain biking, horse riding, bull riding, and so on. With that list, the question is what to do next? To ban dangerous sports one by one or all of them once for all? We can imagine that banning those dangerous sports is easier said than done because banned things often go underground. So, if the reason that some people are tempted to such kinds of sports is seeking fun rather than making a date with death, why not leave them alone?

  As a conclusion, restricting dangerous sports indeed makes little sense of life since those thrill-seeking sports men and women have the rights to control their own lives. The fun of life as they see it is not necessarily related with the eventuality of harm or death. Understanding this point, we are inclined to realize that people die everyday, although doing nothing dangerous. (Essay created by Jeenn Lee Hsieh 谢振礼ielts360toefl@hotmail.com 在线人工批改)
