This video of amateurs making their first jump in tandem off of a cliff is really exciting. Wait until you here one lady screaming with fear!! I made solo, low altitude parachute jumps decades ago in the army using a static line. But somehow I don’t think I am ready for this new sport. How about you?

Here is a long long article that accompanied the video. And just for the record, BASE jumping is the extreme younger cousin of sky diving, which many probably think is extreme enough. Rather than dropping from planes, however, BASE jumpers fall from objects attached to Earth. That is the acronym: buildings, antennas, spans (bridges) and Earth itself.
