He sounds like he's getting pounded by Jesus. "Oh you're my king. Oh yes Jesus. Yes Jesus. You're so good. I love you Jesus. Yes Jesus. That's my king."

What would really suck is if he was halfway over the canyon and a woman sitting on an inverted biplane clipped him...

TheShavingofOccam123: This guy is a complete idiot.

Summer is the worst time to do anything in the air in the high desert. Thermals off that canyon are going to pick him up and deposit his body somewhere Laughlin.

Of course, now Winter would be a bad time too considering snow and rain...

Fall is probably a bad option as well.

Fark is making me laugh, but I just walked by the tv to get my drink and had a moment of - "Oh, shoot! I hope I don't distract him by walking by!"

Why is that confusing?  Oh - you mean that he decided to use the name Wallenda, because if he used his dad's name no one would pay half as much attention to him?

Benevolent Misanthrope: Psycat: Fuggin Bizzy: Psycat: Any of you young'uns remember Evel Knievel?  People would drive hundreds of miles and sit around for hours--and then his actual stunt would take maybe 10 seconds.  Why do people go through all that trouble for a peak experience that's over in almost no time at all?

Explain that to me, and I'll explain the Kentucky Derby to you.

It really baffles me that people will devote a whole day when the main event lasts minutes or even seconds...

Me, too.  I have never understood it.

Oo - "prayer and contemplation!"  DRINK!

I think that what makes the Kentucky Derby work is that the two-minute race is bracketed by several hours of drinking Jack Daniels...

Fuggin Bizzy: "That's really where I get my peace," he said. "I have confidence that if something were to happen to me, I know where I'm going."

No you don't. You have a theory on the matter, but nobody really knows for sure due to that 1-way ticket problem.

That said...good luck.

No, he has a hypothesis on the matter.
