    Going faster than terminal velocity sounds pretty dangerous to me.

    I saw a video of a guy in a wing suit coming racing towards a bridge that folks were all crossing in some valley. They were all waiting and filming. And then BOOM the worst horrific noise. The guy crashed into the bridge at 200!! NOT a sport for me!! I never even did a parachute before and never will. I'm a BIG fan of being on solid ground.

    I have never liked flying except in USCG helo's, where you were plugged into the radio and cockpit conversations.
    Everyone on the flight was considered a 'lookout'.

    Plus, since I hate flying, why would I jump out of one at several thousand feet?
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?
