100% sure.

Just FYI, people around here aren't generally in the habit of giving out info on friends to random strangers, which at this point, you are.



And I guess I'm wrong. [:/]

you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel loquacious?' -- well do you, punk?

sorry i didn't mean to get anyone nervous by asking.:$

i saw 1st base the other day for the first time and it really make me want to become a base jumper. i have my first skydive scheduled for next weekend!

i've been doing some 'googling' about BASE jumpers and just trying to put names to faces.

jeb seems to rock too.

and i'd agree the guy in the photo....whoever he may be...is nice to look at.

i would figure in this sport that's not really the type of thing you say to someone. even as a decent human you shouldn't ever put that stuff out in to the universe.



In all truth, that's exactly the kind of thing you'll hear said in this sport. Death is such an ever-present reality in BASE that you pretty much have to be able to joke around about it, because if you actually stopped to consider it in all seriousness, you'd likely go insane.

Have a look at the photo here and learn the history behind it (you can find a good bit of it digging around old threads in this forum. That'll start you on the way to understanding some of the relationship between BASE jumpers and death.

If you read through all the stuff you can find before posting questions about the photo, you'll get extra points in my book.

aren't there 2 universal constants?
Death & Taxes?
DON'T PANIC
The lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
sloppy habits -> sloppy jumps -> injury or worse

For in-depth study have a look at this picture. Here we cross dead people out. The goal is to be the last one left.

It's on my desktop, so I look at it every day. :P

Hey, if you win, do you get to go around and piss on the graves of everyone else?

Ray, care to weigh in on this?

Wow, is that you in the middle?
I guess actually having to hike for a jump instead of driving with your car to your local bridge keeps you in shape... :):)
