Trumps Base Rigs Can't Post

Trump has said in the past the he and some of h is employees in the top floors of trump towers had "parachute systems" in case of anything like 9/11 happening again. Anyone know who provided them? The manufacturer I mean.

On the plus side, the instructional videos make mentors & FJCs obsolete.

There was a small industry that sprung up in the aftermath of 9/11 for high-rise rescue systems.
From memory one system was a cable that reached to the ground, which you would clip on to before jumping and deploy a roundie to slow descent.

I believe that Basic Research (now Apex) supplied a system to several high rise properties in NYC. I'm not sure if Trump Tower was one of them or not.

If Trump got an off-heading he would definitely blame the packjob.

Not true. He would blame China and then mexicans. Then threaten to build a wall to protect all the other base jumpers from the bad rapists. All of this would of course be written in a cryptic tweet to ensure he stays within the 140 letter criteria of twitter. The masses would go wild.

So says the wannabe Hollywood hero who hopefully packs better than he thinks.

Maybe he would stop NPS from using illegal aerial delivery to prosecute BASE jumpers? That'd make 2 things on my list of "what could I possibly not hate about this election". The only one currently being the dow jones index and S&P 500 spikes after the election. Sigh...that one is only good because it's most of my TSP allocation...which I'm sure will need to be changed quite soon after that bubble gets too big.

Shame there's not enough people that care to even get it in the public eye. If I could actually get permits to jump in yosemite, I'd feel a bit better about this mess.
