Unlike oxymorons that are so popular these days... Insane and skydiver just seem to go together quite well............ Having done my 3 military jumps many years ago, I feel qualified to say so...

The ultimate Jacka#s stunt with absolutely zero useful benefit from having done it. Gravity? We pretty much understood how that works. Catch nets? Naw. Hitting a target at over 120mph from 5 miles away? Maybe. But hopefully the stunt won't lead others to try it. Maybe he could try it blindfolded. Or as the current rage maybe nak*d.

Really, takes me back to Evil's cycle jumps over canyons. Thought that was stupid and this guy has taken it to a new level.

Agree. It is all about "look at me."
More self-serving crap of no value.

What I really despise are those people who put themselves in life-threatening situations on public lands and then expect to be rescued at taxpayer expense when things go wrong. If they want to get an adrenaline surge by challenging death, then they should realize that sometimes death is going to win.

It was, at least five minutes of video that was more meaningful than 100 hours of coverage of EITHER "convention" (really they were just well choreographed "entertainment shows")....

In fact, I'd be happy if BOTH the R & D candidate tried the same stunt!!!!
