Wakosane: A moment of enlightenment:  It's "BASE" jumping not Base.  It's an acronym.  Stands for Bridge Antenna Span Earth.

The B stands for building. A span is a bridge.

eKonk: Sad tag is inappropriate.  The dude jumped off a cliff. He knew the risks.

Cheers to him for dying doing what he enjoyed, not all of us get that.


He died doing what he loved: screaming in terror as he plunged onto rocks and was smashed to death.

Well, I'm sure that a few seconds of adrenalin is totally worth depriving his family and friends of his presence in their lives for another forty or fifty years.  Good for him.

Something tells me he wasn't enjoying it by the end.

Why are so few farkers not getting this reference? OK, it is not Hitchhiker"s Guide, but is in the series.

Oh no, he didn't miss.

I'm guessing you've never seen photos of, or been to the Grand Canyon?

You don't have to make it to the bottom of the canyon to hit something that will arrest your progress.

He enjoyed screaming and pissing himself while falling to certain doom?

Never understood that saying. I would rather live doing what I enjoyed.

On the good side, he never made it to the floor which means that he was not the last one down and thus, is not a rotten egg.
