Awesomness
Most awesome thing people do.
I bet you feel alive doing this.





Would you have the balls?

RE: Awesomness
Looks fun. I've sky dived a couple of times. Way fantastic and I highly recommend the experience. Thumbsup

Tip #1: Make sure your bowel and stomach are empty prior to going up.
Tip #2: If you jump in a group... beware of flying puke.

No, I didn't evacuate in my jumpsuit, but many do - it's a common reflex. I didn't puke either but it is easy to feel why it happens - physical sensation at the immediate drop, similar to a fast elevator drop.

I've seen that suit before - it looks fun and somehow seems safer than base jumping. Shy

RE: Awesomness
I would really love to do this, but they say it takes years of training.

It's not that safe, some guys died doing this, especially risky when they do close proximity (to the ground ) flights.

RE: Awesomness
THEY'RE INSANE!!! BATSHIT CRAZY PEOPLE JUMPING FROM CLIFFS!!!

I don't want to do this, but if I'm in one of those suits and near a cliff I'd do it, I have a very strong jump instinct (high-place phenomenon) Confused

RE: Awesomness
Wing suits are the ultimate feeling of freedom, from what I've heard. There's nothing more awesome than flying through the sky under your own control with nothing separating you from the world below. It's like skydiving, but you can glide and control your motion so much more, so it almost feels like you're a bird.

I wouldn't do it though, because I dislike taking those kind of risks. But I understand why others like it so much.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

What? Blink ... Blink ... No, just no. No

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Less than ten feet by my eye. 6 feet from being 6 feet under. Blink ... Blink

When the time comes, and I feel I'm done with all of this ... no better way to go, imo.

( I'm not suicidal, no worries, just saying )
