Dreams of flying are among the most common dreams, along with falling and losing teeth. They're certainly the most enjoyable of the three. For some people, flight is more than a dream. Pilots, adrenaline junkies, and inventors have all had occasion to defy gravity and take to the skies. But we wanted to ask the public about extreme flights of fancy -- superpowers and jetpacks, flying pigs and floating food. Be sure to take our 6-question Quick Poll to fill out the entire survey. Oh, and don't try any of this at home!

    but I broke my leg when I was 4 thinking that the kiddie pool was deep enough for me to dive in from the tikes slide that was about 5 feet in the air spiral fracture in the left leg no fun I will never believe my brother when he says "it's safe to jump off this come on you can do it" I think the reason for my knee problems may be related to the fact that I couldn't get the care I needed because we didn't have enough money back then

    Almost.
    I jumped down 2 flights of stairs after watching Peter Pan. My mother saw me leap into the air, and then I fell, rolled down the stairs and ended up crashing into a coat rack and a closet door.
    I got lots of bumps and bruises, even went to the hospital for a large gash across my elbow, but thankfully nothing was broken :}

    I broke my nose at two when I jumped down the stairs trying to fly. One second I hopped into the air, the next I was coming rapidly down to meet good old fourth step, then fade to black. The real kicker was I was trying to reenact that toy story scene where buzz jumps.
