I ride a motorcycle. I think that guy is nuts. Not sure if I am qualified to cast aspersions after some of the crazy stuff I have done in my life...

No, he’s definitely nuts. :lol:

That’s what troubled me most. One wrong bump and that’s a long way down.

I wonder what television show was on. It must have been important, because he tuned in while para-gliding, snacking, and filming with the selfie stick.

Bloke hasn't life experiences to learn he isn't invincible.

Sorry but there ain't enough booze in the world to make me do that, and believe me after a few (lot) of drinks I did some really stupid stuff.

He needs more to do, like a job or a second job where he doesn't have time to think up crazy stuff like this.

I remember a story about a guy who strapped himself into a lawn chair and attached a bunch of heavy duty helium balloons, when he got ready to come down he did it by shooting out some of the balloons with a BB gun. This was better!

Yeah, but at that altitude the fall would not have killed him...

It would have been that violent, sudden stop at the end that would have done him in...

That was wild. You folks that jump any idea the altitude he hit? 

 

I used to jump, and it looks like he reached an altitude of about 5,000 to 6,000 feet AGL. Pretty cool stunt, but I didn't see any reserve chute anywhere, and it probably wouldn't have helped if he had one. Most people who paraglide don't wear reserves.

Only nuts!?  That’s gotta be the understatement of the year!

If the guy had fallen off the sofa from “altitude,” I believe he would have died.

He didn’t fall, so his bizarre stunt worked out to be funny.
