Bungy's success spawned more gut-wrenching ideas that would shape Queenstown into an advanture Mecca. In 2002, planloads of tourists chasing their kicks poured about $375 million into local economy.

Excuse me, I don't get it. Would you explain a bit? Is it the same with "catch the bug"?

A kick is something you enjoy, particularly if it involves danger or excitement.

Got it. Could you pls kindly check my sentence if there is any mistake?

The legislator likes to bad-mouth every single trivial in front of the press for chasing kicks in political stage.
:roll:


Does "catch the bug" carry the similiar meaning as "catch the wave"?

On the political stage.

'Trivial' is an adjective, but you are using it as a noun.

Yes, they mean similar things, but I think "catch the wave" has more of a connotation of "getting on board" with a trend.

What do you think, Tdol?
