    They talk about wing suits as if they're as common as weeds, but this is the first time I'd ever heard of them. That looks like it would be amazing if you could ever work up the nerve to jump.

    Check that out. Another crazy sport that I will probably never do. Also, check out this video where someone with a wingsuit straps some small rocket turbines to his legs and gets about 30 seconds of sustained flight.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Its an interesting idea as a backup to the backup chute. However, as the main parachute... no thanks.

    Here is most of it embedded for those that get nervous about opening links. Plus it gets right to the cool **** and cool music. Although the original link is much higher quality in full screen. It's more then worth a look, one of the most amazing videos I have ever seen.
