    I'll copy-paste my description.

    Given these three truths....

    1 - You can pick up objects.
    2 - You can stand on objects.
    3 - You can jump off objects.

    Somebody decided one day to try to fly by picking up an object, stepping onto it, and then jumping off of it repeatedly (while still holding onto it) to fly.

    And it worked.

    I read about this trick in the HL2DQ speedrun and had to try it myself.
    Happy to say it's as easy to pull off as it looks! Just remember to tap the forward movement key every second or so, otherwise you'll slip backwards off of whatever you're using. These big palettes are the easiest to use, but with practice you can use splinters of wood and other such objects.

    As for only having one health, I just left Ravenholm and I'll admit I tend to forget that when a zombie is cut in half, sometimes the headcrab will just abandon the body...[/p]

    Everyone that plays gmod should know this. It's nothing new.

    This also works in numerous other games like for example The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion.
