    What jumping off a building and then parachuting down looks like in first person

    Just a crazy stunt, especially with the flips:

    Got nervous just watching the video, the hardest part has to be the few seconds right before you jump. Or the moment you realize the chute isn't going to open.

    I think he didn't even jumped with a BASE set, and he opened so high there was even room for a quick reserve in case of a malfunction. Really quick, that is...
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    To these guys it's probably not such a big deal anymore.
    When I bungee jumped the hardest part was letting go. And after looking down(first thing they tell you not to do) made it even harder. My jump was only 170 something feet IIRC. I would $#@! my pants standing at the heights these crazies are jumping from.

    I was thinking he could have waited for a few more seconds before he pulled the parachute, then I realized it was probably leaving time pull the reserve now that you mention it.

    It's a crazy feeling, just when you think your gonna hit the floor(swiming pool in my case) you shoot back up. The sudden change of direction is a crazy feeling. Then you top off and the feeling of weightlessness kicks in and bam drop again! It's that roller coaster feeling back to back to back.
    I was screaming my lungs out the time. Awesome experience, next on the to do list is skydiving.

    That looks scary as $#@!.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Base jumping claims a lot of people every year. There just isn't all that much time from these heights.
