    The thing that would bother me the most, out of about a 1000 things that would bother me on this, is that the atmosphere is just about non-existent that far up, and I would imagine you just tumble uncontrollably until you hit thicker atmosphere. I would puke all in that nice space suite.

    How much do I have to pay to get up that high?

    I'd be more worried about something going wrong with my suit like when they jumped in '60

    Now that I have the money I am scheduling my first skydive, really excited about it. Want to get 200 dives in as soon as possible so I can try for my real dream, fucking wind suits. Something like what this guy did would be absolutely amazing but this would defiantly scare even my love of heights. I used to have a small fear of heights before I got a job climbing where I was on a roof every day and a tower ranging from 50-200ft a couple times a month. I almost pissed myself the first time I used a suicide strap (A Strap you loop through the inside of a tower so you can lean back at a 90° angle to work with both hands). After a little time it became exhilarating and now the higher the better.

    Who knows, but whatever it cost, it'd be worth every fucking cent.

    I had 127 freefalls in before the company I work for finally started to cover me with health insurance. The first fucking question the cunt agent asked was if I skydive. I said yes. She said no, I don't. I hate that bitch, but, if I want insurance.................

    I will get insurance through my work before I take my first fall so if I get this question I can answer no honestly. That will work. Don't try to ruin it for me.

    I had no choice but to tell the truth. Her and my boss go to the same church and he had mentioned my skydiving antics to her previously. He found out later that I was not pleased at all.

    Because skydiving is so much more dangerous than rock climbing or eating soul food all day? Screw the fun hating actuaries

    It wasn't "they". Just Captain Kittinger and his amazing brass balls.

    This.

    Besides, if something went wrong, no problem with surviving to be pain-filled cripple for the rest of your miserable life.

    So fucking cool. I'd do that even if I was gonna splat on the ground at the end.

    I've lived a decent life. That would be worth it.

    There isn't a whole of things that can give you an over the top adrenalin rush that lasts for half a day after you land - if you don't solo at least once you are missing out on one of the greatest experiences there is.
