Corliss gets busted in NYC

Recommended Posts

From the article....

"Empire State Building staff had been tipped off to the caper and were waiting when Corliss got there".

It's not that he got busted... It's the tar (pain) and feathering (suffering) that the "tipper offer" is going to receive that's got me a little worried.

That, and H.L.S. is going to have a whole new realm of B.S. to use as tools against the collective band of brothers..

edited to add... Just looked through the slide show. I love the shot of Jeb as a tubby fuc*er.... Should've just had C.R. build you a bigger rig and hopped as a fatty..... The comedy facter would've been about a half point higher..

Fuck that shit!!!
No props at all, that was stupid.

All you guys are not aware of the magnitude of this crap, now BASE is in the spot light.

All the factors to make this story even bigger: known person, important building, and high tech costume. It shows the buildings vulnerability for BASE Jumping and it also make people aware of us.


For putting BASE in the spot light and make this story as big as you could.

Thanks Jeb

From the looks of that picture, the fine, upstanding folks trying to stop him put Jeb and anybody on the street below in more danger than if they'd just looked the other way on the tip.

So I guess NY's a little toasty right now. :S
I really don't know what I'm talking about.

the fact is...they are mighty pissed that he made them look a little stupid...thats why him and bubba are soon gonna play moms and dads in the big house...now all fat old geezers will be getting the rubber glove treatment too when they go into any big B in NYC...its a shame they had to recklessly endanger jeb with what they did...its a shame the building owners arent as forward thinking as the malaysians or the chinese..but i guess post 9/11 and the Iraq farce means that they are twitchy...

i think its time us Brits revoked your independence so you can have a slapped wrist and a "dont do it again" like us and all the europeans get when we get caught being naughty...

I don't know if that particular object is jumped often...
However, do you consider "objectburning" a daylight jump off a very high profile object like that?
I learned from my mentor that can be considered "objectburning" a jump only if the object is commonly jumped by others, while if is possible to jump the object only "once in the life" this cannot be considered a burning...
Opinions?

I agree, I don't consider it "object burning."

It does however, obviously bring BASE and jumpers into the limelight once again, displayed by the media as sneaky, rebelling, crazy daredevils who should be restrained.

I like Jeb, but this publicity stunt could have been spared. It had nobody to benefit but himself, if anything, and only does harm to the rest of the community.

Objectburning! I did not know this building was jumped since 1998 by Thor Alex and a Russian? You should worry more about security guards hanging on to your feet on exit point!



OK, sorry, I trade obectburning with glory hunting then...

Just saw it on CNN Headline News....... It's funny they didnt mention he was base jumping....only that he was going to parachute from the building... Does this mean they will be patting down all fat people now??:S

Sounds like JEB's TV show may have needed some better ratings...like they say, no such thing as bad publicity. Well for the true blue BASE Community, this is jacked up and wrong. Knowing a few NYC locals myself, he now has the area in hot mode.

Thanks JEB..hope the ratings boost pay off!!

Hot mode? in NYC? There are not so high profile objects everywhere you look. I really think not. The ESB is the #1 object in the entire city not to jump.

Anyone else find the fact that he's now being called a "wannabe" ironic?
