Another Base Jumper Splat

For my 25th birthday, I parachuted from a perfectly good plane. I had done the research and found that the thrill from a static line jump (not a free fall jump) far outweighed the danger. Base jumpers can’t or won’t take those precautions because the thrill is so outrageously great.

I believe base jumpers have every right to dive for those thrills – and I have every right not to care if they paint the rocks below.¬† If they don’t care that much¬†about their lives, why should I? (This also goes for Nick Wallenda and others who tease death for money.)
