    Hey folks! If you're in Southern California and want to jump out of an airplane, the Liquid Sky Freefall Boogie is today and tomorrow. HUGE party! At Skydive Taft, just outside Bakersfield! Come on down!

    I can guarantee that should I have to jump of a plane liquid would certainly be involved. Challenging my fear of heights is something I do everyday at work. However, I draw the line way lower than 30,000 feet.

    Then you're in luck, my friend, 'cause no one jumps out of planes at 30k feet unless the initials SOF are involved in your job title somewhere . . .

    My reply was mostly hyperbolic. Really, any height that one considers safe to leap bodily out of a plane is too high for me.

    We do 14,000 drops. No O2 required ;) still two and a half miles to fall

    Tell you what: drop down to roughly 25 feet and you've got a deal!

    It may just be me, but it seems like jumping out of a moving aircraft at 25 feet would be extremely hazardous to your health.

    Hey now, no one said anything about the plane being in motion. No, it must be fully at rest, and indeed, not even powered on. Beneath the door must be several feet of air-mattress or equivalent volume of assorted fluff.

    But.....if it's not moving, how is it going to be 25 feet in the air?

    I imagine it's a tall plane.

    Why would anyone want to jump out of a perfectly good, working plane?

    Nope me and heights never did get along, even though in my youth I did some rock climbing.

    You and I are the only ones in this thread making any sense, I say.

    Many years ago, I spend a week on Lundy Island (Bristol Channel, UK) rock climbing. It took me 4 days to pluck up the courage to abseil 400 feet (It included changing ropes at 200 feet) to start this 600 foot rock climb - called the Devils Slide. Technically not a hard rock climb, but for 'exposure' well hopefully the below do it justice -
