I'm up for it! My dad went parachuting twice, and something he told me was really interesting. I never thought about it, but since your center of gravity is in the middle, when you fall standing up, you get that stomach going up sensation, but when you're parallel to the ground, it doesn't even feel like you're dropping.

You know what also sounds fun??? Bungee jumping off of something like the Brooklyn Bridge. Or the Space Needle. Just want to watch out for mid-air nooses.

The Space Needle would be fun. Or that one big arch in I don't remember where.

OK, now I get it. It takes me a while to get jokes...in other words, you confused me.

You'd jump off the narrow bit and bounce off the wall as it got wider as you went down. Actually, I saw a video of somebody jumping off the Space Needle on a wire - it unrolled off a drum on the roof as he fell, and the only thing stopping him hitting a very terminal velocity was a pair of flaps on the drum acting as air-brakes.

I can see the Space Needle now (as it is tapered), one would jump off and with each extension of the bundgee cord would WHACK the wall of the needle, repeatedly OUCH!

Sure! ...I'm not signing a waiver, though ;-P (I read the title as "Mountain wetsuit flying videos" -- made 0 sense ;P)

The first one looks like it might give you hot heals :-) Either way you can impact the mountain at a higher velocity LOL that looks vaguely familiar.....

I've always wanted to freefall, and be a flying squirrel. When I get older, I am definately going to go try this.
