News, but not the serious kind
Look, up in the sky! A blogger who works holidays!
Blog Guy, I saw a Reuters shot of this guy doing a Superman leap in diving competition in Switzerland this weekend, and he looked a lot like you. I guess we shouldn’t expect a new blog post tomorrow?
Several readers asked this. First off, if you’ve read my various posts about heights, you know that I oppose doing anything from an altitude, especially jumping from it.
Now, this guy is diving from a 26-meter platform, which is about 85 feet. Since that’s higher than six inches off the ground, that wouldn’t be me in the photo.
If for some reason it WAS me, I wouldn’t be posing like Superman. I’d look like a cartoon character with eyes bulging two feet out of my head, squealing like a castrato.
Lastly, unlike most blogs and liquor stores, I’m always open. There’s new stuff every day, including Labor Day. So come on back for a visit and bring your friends.
