  4. The amazing part is that although he made that jump in 1960, his record still stands. For some reason nobody else seems interested in jumping from high-flying baloons and I just have to ask, why? You'd think it should be fun, and not that hard either, I mean, all you have to do is fall - no way to screw this up :)

  8. There's something a wee bit funny about the army video. The footage is all legit, Sterling SMG's, SLR's etc, but the voiceover doesn't sound right.
