Holy crap! The guy has his legs broken into pieces but he rolls and stabilizes his flight before pulling his chute. That's a tough M** F**er.

This is one of the few occasions where I welcome the terrible music. Didn't want to hear the impact/post impact wails of pain.

That's pretty much what I said, too. Ick.

Wait, so it's NOT a good idea to jump off a cliff wearing a tent?

Anybody know the extent/severity of his injuries? I watched the video yesterday and looked for a follow-up story, but was only able to determine that he'd "fractured his legs" via Wiki. Um...duh...
 
2012-02-23 04:52:07 PM
Wow... how fast was he going?

I'm not so sure he made even so much as a wimper.

I broke both lower leg bones and my knee cap in a dirt bike accident and I didn't make a sound. Not sure if it was the shock of it all or what. Almost like it hurt too much to scream.

Plus, he had to focus on pulling his chute.

Agreed. What an amazing display of concentration and resolve. I think I would have been too busy blacking out and plummeting to have done the same.

This is the same guy who broke his back by flying his parachute into a waterfall and plunging 100 feet into a pool of water, then had to swim out, broken back and all, whilst being bitten by little pirahna-like fish in the pool.

He basically doesn't feel pain. There's an interview where he says his parents took him to psychologists when he was a kid because his fear response is all farked up too. Fear tells the rest of us, "Don't do that." It tells him, "I bet that would be cool."

Yeah, you have to be a little crazy to base jump, and really crazy to proximity fly. He qualifies.

It's surprisingly difficult to muster up any sympathy for the guy.

In the original video from last month, when he was on the ground, he was definitely wimpering.

That's not exactly what he told Conan, basically this stuff scares the shiat out of him, just like us:

As if hitting the mountain wasn't bad enough, his chute fouled too. Not a good day for him.
 
2012-02-23 07:21:57 PM
pure retard... when you THINK you're gonna hit you bite the chute release knob.

oh, we was flying without a mouth release? what a double retard.


On the upside... sunna added to library until I can procure a pdrm and Power Struggle added to playlist Hammer.

And I think his face landed in some sort of thorny shrubbery. Thats all the helmet cam sees at the end.

The knack of it is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

Here's a MUCH better video than that LiveLink crap: Link (new window). The linked video was uploaded by Jeb himself and has HD.

I thought he actually broke his legs when he hit the ground after pulling the chute.

/could be wrong.

I'd love to a try a wing suit type of thing. Although I'd jump from an airplane from an air plane with plenty of empty air around me, a chute, and a reserve chute. Ground skimming is just begging for this to happen. Props on him for getting the chute deployment off and doing something to keep stability.

The black balloon looked too low. I don't think they considered the little ledge above it.
