I wonder if a change of undies was required after.

Yes, EJ, I had to change my undies after watching that.

Wow, incredible! I'm trying to determine if Jeb Corliss is extremely brave or extremely crazy.

Thank you for sharing that with us.

There seems to be a whole bunch of people out there who think that the best way to live life is to get as close to death as possible. Maybe he has a boring job.

Taking risks is an addiction, and I imagine there are some who do not survive the experience. Mr. Corliss seems to be an amiable fellow, although I would not like to learn he is a married man with children.

Perhaps when he reaches that level in life these temptations will cease. I can't imagine wishing to be his insurance agent :-/

I read this, Chris, and then I thought of Sam Brinton. Each has made a safe landing. Each is changed by the experience. The difference is that the friend of Batman had a parachute. Sam simply had to hope for a safe landing.

I wanna! Me next!
Wow!
JimB, why does he have to be either one or the other? Both is perfectly reasonable - and probably correct. Very Happy
