    Do a flip.

    I always wanted to go skydiving but my options are somewhat limited around here.

    Have a good time anyhow.

    Isn't it more of a splat than a bounce?

    Believe it or not, they bounce...However most skydivers pass out before impact (and sometimes have a heart attack and die before hitting the ground)...Just from pure fright...

    And you know this how?

    I've jumped before, and I recommend it to everyone at least once. It was a static line jump and there wasn't any freefall except for a few seconds, but still pretty intense.

    a week or so ago here in New Zealand a sky diver's parachute didn't deploy so he just fell straight into a.. blackberry bush I think it was, and the bush saved his life, a few broken bones, but he's alive.

    so even if you parachute fucks up, you can still survive [​IMG]
    and sounds fun, I plan on sky diving one day [​IMG]
