My question is, WHY would anyone want to do this?

  2. It's fun to build something and then see how far it goes,or at least that's what my uncle told me (he entered it once),and for the adrenalin rushg of jumping off so high,like skydiving.

  3. yeah… IDK… except that it is what defines them… Just like you have your blog, this guy has his diving… We all have something that we want to show the world, just to prove that we're in the mix. Nothing wrong with that. Some just take more chances than others to do it!! lol Of course, I could do that, if I really wanted…. lol yeah, and, probably end up in traction for a year, if I survived the descent!! lol luv, tman<3

  4. It's called 'LIVING LIFE!'. You never feel more alive than when you are physically pushing the envelope. Like the amazing stunts that young people do on skateboards and bikes. Mountain climbing, sky-diving, motocross, gymnastics, running, swimming, sex, etc all give you the physical rush and high that is the joy of life. The key of course, is not to go beyond your ability and training and work up to higher levels gradually, and minimize your risk. -On the talk show on the radio today they were talking about how the children of today will not live as long and healthy a life as their parents. They are becoming house-bound couch potatoes in this age of computers, video games, hi-def tv, etc; the rest of the time they are sitting in school. If they do get out of the house, it is to some 'organised activities' or minimum security jail for kids lol. Not all young people are like this, but a much larger proportion than in the past. Let me put this in perspective; as a teen in the 60's I could go outside on a nice weather day any time of the year and see lots of young people outside getting exercise. It is a beautiful sunny summer day today here in the suburbs and there is not a kid or teen to be seen anywhere outside, even when I went for a drive to get my coffee. And this is normal these days. I would like to see young people rebel and claim their freedom. bfn – Wayne 🙂
