    This blows me away! Did you ever think a person could fly through the air as fast as a bullet without any artificial propulsion system?

    I doubt I'd be medically cleared to do it, but I'd love to!

    I'd much rather do that than parachute from 150ft.

    Never would I even dream of doing something like that. If the parachute didn't open, there'd be nothing left of you to scrape up.

    I am extremely acrophobic (fear of heights) which is why I respectfully defer to the Airborne. I hate flying and will do it only when unavoidably necessary. And it would take several very big men, a bloody struggle, or defense of a loved one to get me to jump out of a functional aircraft.

    Fuckin-A right!

    From that altitude, you'd have to be stopping me from jumping out of that contraption.
