Actually, this tool might die skydiving before he even gets to the potato bridge, the valley or Brento.

Re: [Heat] "BFL, here I come" [In reply to] Can't Post

This made me laugh.

He actually called me asking about a course last year. I don't think he'd made a skydive yet at that point. He told me all about his plan to pound through wing suiting and how he'd already lined up the newspaper reporter to get himself some publicity starting out.

To his credit, he seems to have actually carried through on his plan, which is not the case for the vast majority of people I talk to at that stage.

I'm sure he'll be lighting the world of BASE on fire in another couple months here... Crazy

True, it sucks when people really don’t know what they don’t know....
Hard to believe there are people like this out there? And media that sucks it up,.... then again, maybe not?
Oh well, better keep an eye out for this Bozo....

Do I really need to copy paste the URL to check it out? I feel like there are instances that links won't direct user to the website.
