I knew about that before it had even happened. The icepick (and, if I remember correctly, the fufanu) will be in an upcoming video.

It's just too bad that he didn't do a Cookeback off that quarter, too.

edit: Probably because the lift was merely for practice; it costs quite a bit to rent the chopper, especially if you have to mount something like that on it.

I think a Ride video, but I'm not positive; you never can tell when Fudger is taking pictures, since he's takes pictures of pretty much everything.

Yes, I am a jet. No, actually I am the one on the left, I am controling the plane with a remote. You can see it if you look REAL close.

I paid $120/hr to rent a Robinson R22, but that was about 15 years ago. The cool part was that the pilot offered to let me fly.

Yeah, but you didn't pay for the chopper to hover for several minutes twenty feet above the ground (in a business area) with a large wooden object attached to the skid, did you?

No, but we did drop to 400ft in a residential, which is not exactly legal. We were supposed to be at 800ft. And the pilot offering me the controls was a bit sketchy. I also learned it's a bad idea to stick you head out the doorway above 80MPH.
