That's fear of heights if you don't know. And I am plagued with it. Otherwise...

Man. One tiny miscalculation on how close you are to the cliff/mountain and you're fucked.

:shake::shake:I work on elevators and have stood on top of the st. louis arch...(the national park service maintains the elevator/tram system that takes you to the top and the company I work for did an audit...they said that some dude landed on top of the arch with a parachute and he was supposed to jump back off with another chute, however something didnt work right and SPLAT...so, I am not afraid of heights, but I am not suicidal or stupid either...this ski/chuting looks like it boarders on both.

if i remember right, that was in the early '70s and i think the guy was supposed to parachute through the opening of the arch. he landed on the top and slid down one side, killing himself.

Actually, acrophobia is a fear of heights. Batophobia is the fear of being next to something that has great height, i.e a skyscraper, or mountain.

Wow. I wonder how many hours they spend in a wind tunnel or whatever before they try it for real.

Those suits are amazing.

Amazing video footage. But did I hear that guy say something like, "It gets boring..." ????? Apparently that guy drinks adrenaline for breakfast.
