    Circle of trust, just between me and you guys, I'm too chicken shit to jump off the high board. This dude's insane.

    I've always wanted to go sky diving. I'm one of those guys that would look over the edge and feel nauseous, but once I'm in the air i would love it.

    By "one of those guys," you mean "everyone with a pulse?"

    Some people don't mind it. I don't really mind heights unless I'm not strapped in to something. I love roller coasters and stuff like that.

    If they don't mind extreme heights and it doesn't make their heart skip a beat, I think they may be evolutionary dead-ends waiting to happen.

    I'm one who believes that there is no reason to jump out of a perfectly good airplane!

    Unless you jump right into B-line or something, you won't have the option to look over the edge. Most jumpers jump tandem their first jump, and the guy you are strapped into will make you cross your arms and grab your straps, so you don't try to hold up as they go through the door.

    I love it, but I never got certified. Do shit while you are still young Indy.
