Why don't adults enjoy dizziness?

Why don't adults enjoy dizziness like kids do? When I was a kid I remember thinking adults were boring for not enjoying the feeling of dizziness, and I vowed to always enjoy it :) Now as an adult, I can't stand it, and feel like throwing up. It seems most adults (if not all) feel the same way. Why is that?

How can my wife help these rural middle-class kids think they're from the ghetto?

My wife is teaching an after-school dance club for 7 year-olds. A few boys have enrolled and want to learn some street dance moves. What hip-hop tracks could she use? They need to be recent UK hits and, obviously, not sweary/rude/all about violence. Our community is about as far from inner-city street culture as it gets, so their posturing is hilarious, but she'd like to indulge them - without upsetting the head/parents/the girls.

What should we discuss before we have kids?

Apologies, I know there is a lot on this topic, but I have a specific question that doesn't seem to be answered. We are thinking of having kids. We both want them. What should we discuss before we jump in with both feet? Who will stay home, and for how long? What kinds of names are you considering? What forms of punishment / praise will be used? When can she get her ears pierced? etc. There seems to be so much to discuss... and I want to start having the conversation before I get hormonal. This will be our first. What conversations did you have before yours were born?
