    We wear the helmets in case we make judgement errors and hit a building or other objects on the ground (statues, poles, etc.) under canopy.

    Why are they wearing helmets?

    And I notice that most are reaching around to their backs to pop the chutes. What happens if they can’t find the handle thingie?

  • I can see myself doing this…yeah, right.

  • Ah, vicarious thrills for my acrophobia!

    I had the nerve to jump out of a plane, so I can see doing this. Although, I don’t think my bones aren’t as bendy as they use to be.

  • My vegus nerve just freaked!
