Skydive naked! This 4.1 MB mpeg is NSFW, but if you enjoyed madamjujujive's pianist post, you might like this too.

You can find a smaller version of the file (996 Kb) here. (skydive.mpe).

The source says the file is larger, but they don't seem to understand byte to Kb converstion.

When I went skydiving (ummm, April of 2000, I think) the guy that I was strapped to was telling me some stories on the way down, after the chute had opened and it was eerily quiet. He had over 4000 jumps under his belt and would often do publicity things. So he once did a publicity dive with a (then nude) Miss Nude Texas 199X (I don't remember the year).

Then he stopped suddenly, pointed to a pond and said, "and over there's where I get my shrooms".

Oh wow. You shouldn't watch something like that when you have a cold and a runny nose. Truly a mess on my monitor.

that was funny, and seemed so casual, like it was just a "germany's* funniest home videos" typa thing. But they wouldn't show that on american tv...

*or wherever it was, apologies.

The joy of freefall, the wind blowing through your hair, your limbs flapping in the breeze...

I don't have dangly bits...but may I say that "fwhapata, fwapata, fwapata" does look a tad painful. Funny, but painful. :)

Heh. NSFW indeed. I got suspended for "sexual harassment" for a week after sending that around to some folks at work in spring of 99. Nobody was offended (all were wildly amused, by contrast) but the boss was feeling threatened since I'd been doing the job for years and he was spectacularly incompetent, so he took the chance to ensure I'd never be a threat to his job. 'Course, that was the hint I needed that it was time to move on; left the place about a month later, starting a mass exodus that eventually resulted in the boss getting fired for brain drain. Dumbass. 'Course I learned my lesson too, use extreme caution when putting coworkers on humor mailings.

How about something a bit more serene, like lotus in freefall. Amazing picture.
