"Only three times in my life have I been so scared that I trembled -- legs quivering, hands jittering, heart out of control," writes Frank Bruni for The New York Times.

"The first was at 12, when I watched The Exorcist before I should have.

The second was at 41, when, on the kind of dare to which middle-aged men seem peculiarly vulnerable, I got into a canvas harness and prepared to jump some 250 feet into a gorge in Zambia.

The third was a few months ago, on Staten Island, when I was asked by an examiner for the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles to pull out of a parking spot and drive toward a nearby stoplight."
