So... it was a little before midnight on 11/11, that I saw the post from earlier that night in Leroy’s thread; “unIntentional BASE Pictures in the real world”. Have always loved that thread... but nowadays every time it comes up, it’s also quite depressing; since he absolutely should have been at KL 2009, as planned.
Forum has seemed a bit slow too, unlike a decade ago... and have briefly wondered if there was anything similar I could post that would be fun/entertaining.
I regularly need something short to listen to while I work on certain tasks, often searching on YT for “Joe Rogan on” or “Adam Carolla on”, and eventually noticed that he was just shy of hitting a “100 away mark”, from my BASE number. But the thread idea didn’t come to me that night, because I remember when it did, 1039 had been posted (making it less than 10 away - 11/14); and Damn, Iliza Shlesinger is Smokin’ Hot!
Why does that part matter to me?
Because she was born on George Washington’s Birthday...
I still haven’t had time to listen to it (her second appearance since the studio changes), and have also only had time to listen in full to a dozen or so overall. However, in recalling Steve-O’s two ridiculously hilarious episodes, I also wondered whose BASE numbers corresponded to them.
After deciding I would probably be posting sometime after 1047 was up... yesterday, again, needing something short to listen to, the first two JRE clips that came up were about fights I hadn’t yet seen, the third was about Louie CK, and the fourth... was a skydiver; “Joe Rogan Talks To Crazy Skydiver About The Risks of Skydiving”. Which was not on his “JRE Clips” channel, but a fan page, and it was from that description, I learned it was from Episode 1047; the “100 mark.”
Talk about an “interesting little coincidence!”
Now, I’ll admit, I’m horrible with names. I had indeed seen that 1047 was up, but when I saw his name, didn’t realize who it was (using my bookmark that goes right to the videos tab for his channel; which shows no descriptions, only names and numbers) - (but was vaguely aware of the WS record). Though seen after the fact, he was also on #720 (11/10/15), and while there have been a few Navy Seals, it appears he is the only BASE jumper to have been on the show.
So... definitely decided to post after that.
And am looking forward to seeing who is on for 1147; and what day that falls on.
And back to JRE: this was good to watch/hear; Bobcat on the topic. -- I’m not one to post on any anti-social media platforms whenever a celebrity I like passes away, but I will say, his suicide did bother me greatly; especially given several aspects relating to What Dreams May Come. So, this information was, "comforting", to a degree. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKOjZLPXLhk
"Damn Miles, 63 jumps in one day...that is just insane to think about. I can't comprehend doing something for 24 hours straight...except maybe think about chimpanzees. Do you ever think about hairless primates, Miles? Hey Jamie, pull up that video of a chimp eating a man's face..."

Well ... I started off my new year nicely. Not with a jump (not this year), but a few hours after the countdown I was finally able to start #1047. Watched most of it, but finished just after midnight the next day, and since then have also finished #720. Both were well worth the time:
#1047 was the better of the two, and very ADD-esk: lots of good topics covered, but with a handful I would’ve liked to hear more on.
#720 was also great, but I definitely preferred Andy being solo. Tait is an interesting guy, but was honestly a bit annoying in the beginning with his “it’s the corporations, man” and a bit more. But he eventually stops, and does redeem himself.
Best topic covered ... the Javelin Missile Story. That is a Bad Ass Missile System, and “top-attack” is one of the sickest fucking things I’ve ever seen. Have long known about it, was super jealous as soon as it was brought up, and then the story was awesome.
Did take some notes while watching. Most are things I personally found interesting, but a good chunk are straight topic changes; definitely not a full list. And some are, not surprisingly, “interesting little coincidences.” lol.
