The trick to flying is to miss the ground

Hmm … he's just standing around on the side of a mountain, what's he going to—oh, he's going to jump off! Okay …

Ah, he's imitating a flying squirrel … that's neat—Whoa! That was pretty cool! Oh, now some footage from … another … angle … um … isn't he pretty low HOLY XXXX that was close!

Okay … he's still flying … how's he going to land?

Yes, you have to watch this. In HD, full screen if you can. It's simply amazing what he does, which proves that you don't even need to jump out of a perfectly good airplane to show people how crazy you are.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
