    I remember watching a documentary of Joe Kittinger made the parachute jump. Very interesting especially as the jump he made could have easily been aborted had he reported to the ground he had a tear in his glove when he made the parachute jump back to earth.

    EDIT: What the frack, I can't post a youtube link without it being embedded?

    Side effect of the auto embed system. The way around it is to use URL tags where the href is different than the text:

    I want to do this sooo friggin bad....call me crazy but jumping out of a flying aircraft and dropping 120K' is definitely living....wait that came out wrong. :)

    I don't think any aircraft is capable of reaching altitudes of 120,000 feet. perhaps the u2 spyplane or the lockheed blackbird might come close to it. I'd def try it given the chance, nothing like falling faster that the speed of sound. I'm prity good with heights, it's hitting the ground that would bother me. :D
