I Jumped Out Of A Perfectly Good Airplane

Why? Just because! Life's short, and all that. While I've not uploaded the video, I hope to get some stills on here... here's the link to the place I went. 4.5 hours of training before they let you crawl out of the plane attached to a static line (so that when you go, your 'chute is pulled automagically)... three seconds before the 'chute fills, then 4-5 minutes of gliding before landing.
Joe Bob says 'check it out'! Fear, joy, stress, exhilaration, adrenaline, accomplishment... it's all there.
