News, but not the serious kind
What’s that big thing near the drop zone?
Blog Guy, did you read about those guys who made the highest parachute landing ever at a drop zone near Mount Everest last week?
So they had the danger of diving from four miles up, AND they had to avoid hitting Mount Everest! They must be REALLY macho!
Total weenies, those guys. If they had only checked around, they would have found much more dangerous new combo sports. Just to name a few:
- Jumping over Everest from four miles up while playing Russian roulette
- Jumping over Everest from four miles up in a jumpsuit full of cobras
- Jumping over Everest from four miles up with a three-mile bungee cord attached to the airplane
- Jumping over Everest from four miles up while listening to Barry Manilow on your iPod
Wow! Do you need a special parachute for those combo sports?
Who said anything about a parachute?
