This is one of my coworkers, Rob Brown.
There's a lot you can say about this, but ultimately I think it boils down to a big bucket of stupid. Yeah, thrill seeking is all well and good but when there's a virtual guarantee of death when something goes wrong, this really means that the risk simply isn't worth it.
Barring something unexpected, I'll be plunging to my death in two weeks. I've already put down my deposit.
