I'd love to do it. But its one of thsoe things that i'm unsure ill be ever able to do. Its probably the old cliched fear of having your parachute not opening, i would feel pretty stupid to die that way. By the way, partly offtopic, but have you heard about "space diving", its something man will be doing in the near future. It is jumping in a suit from almost the end of the athmosfere and falling down until you open a parachute. Figure that plans are to make this thing doable from the space station itself.

dear postrock, no you know there isn't any fear up there at all, when you jump there is no sensation of fear of falling, it's like the feeling of jumping into water, your just jumping into air and clouds, there is no ground that you can see, for one thing, also you don't think about your parachute not opening...you don't have time for such thoughts, just concentrating on your free fall etc...stanzi

Hi stanz! Wow, that is awesome! I do admire people who gets into those kind of sports. I adon't think i can do it because I am even afraid to ride the roller coaster. haha..The last time i rode in one just to face this feear, my knees were so weak and i got so nauseous. I don't think i will ever ride again nor go skydiving even how much i love looking at the sky. haha..Take care always and be safe. Have a nice day my friend. :)
