  • SkyJump (new stratosphere ride)

    Stratosphere just opened a new thrill ride, you put on a harness, are attached to a cable, and step off a platform at the top of the stratosphere. 108 stories straight down attached only to your harness.

    I'm definitely checking this out, about $100/jump

    Wow, it looks like fun - but I am WAY to much of a wuss for 108 stories straight down!

      Maybe you could pay them half and only go down 54 stories? :)
      A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

        I'm thinking of saying I'll fix that 0.5mb background image for a free jump or two.

          That looks awesome... too bad I'm also a pussy when it comes to things like a 108 story freefall

            One of the young girl reporters on NBC's Today Show did it on this morning's show. She said she had to be talked into it for the first jump, but then she liked it so much, she did it two more times on her own.

              No fun, you don't even reach terminal velocity.

              Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

                According to the Today report, you max out at about 40 MPH.

                  The adrenaline rush would make my heart explode, I'll stick to not tempting death,who knows though I may be inclined to do it... I have done dumber.

                    Cancun, spring break '99... nothing more needs to be said, eh?

                    If they'll let me to it with a BAC well over the legal limit, I might actually consider it. Though if tequila is added to the mix there is a distinct possibility of a mess waiting for me at the bottom...
