How many of us have flown before? Probably all of us.
Ok, How many of us have flown WITHOUT an airplane? Probably not many.

Man!!! It must take days for the adrenillin rush recovery! The concept of Human Powered Flight dates back about 3000 years with the myth of Daedalus and Icarus. Daedalus, a Greek artisan created two pairs of wings out of wax and feathers for his son Icarus and himself, to escape the Labyrinth on Crete. I wonder if those insurance companies know someones kids are doing this!! :D

That looks neat. I jumped from a plane many times when I was young but that stuff looks outrageous. I wish I was 30 years younger and single. I'd love to give that a go.

Bill, no need to jump from a perfectly good aircraft. You did land upside down didn't you! On a stone wall?
Oh, to be young a foolish again........

That's nothing I once saw the coyote put on an Acme bat man outfit. He went strait down at 500 mph just barely missing the jagged rocks below The only reason the coyote crashed into the mountain was because he stopped looking strait ahead. Or else he would have caught that stupid roadrunner. :flush:
