Hall of Badassery: You Might Die, But It Might Be Worth It

Gay Guy,

Blow this video up full-screen in HD if you can. I can't imagine finding a state of mind to do something like this.

But then again, everything sounds more dramatic over drums and a chanting chorus. I'll use that score the next time I replace the toner cartridge on our HP 8500.

For reasons that I don't understand (but should), I married an adrenalin junkie--a fighter pilot. Two children resulted; the daughter got the junkie gene and married a guy who wanted to be a SEAL so badly, he went through the process twice. I figure that doubles down on the junkie gene. They have a son who will be raised in a world of superheroes. He's seen Avatar twice by the age of three. He believes he is Ironman. He will grow up to believe a feat like this one is not only possible, but is his right.

Me? The music gives me palpitations.

Does it sound crazy to say that I would LOVE to do that? I'll have to mark it down on my Bucket List. It's a one time only thing...the risk of death is a little daunting.

Sigh, this is exactly why I like my feet on the ground. Now I feel pukey.

I'd do it. I'd be a bit of a freak-out mess before I actually got in the air, but once I was up there, I think I'd be fine.

I'd like to know how you can start a beginners course with that? At least bikes have training wheels. Or you can jump with someone when skydiving. This to me sounds like being thrown into the deep end expected to either crash or soar. I think it would be a blast.
