It's a wickedly busy here today, so here's a quick video clip of a freakin' lunatic in a glide-suit flying fifteen feet above a mountain at over one hundred miles per hour.
Now, that looks like a heck of a lot of fun to me in one of those "I'm Batman!" sort of ways. Still, the thing about mountains is that they not only have these things called rocks, but there are these tree-things that have a tendency of leaping out in front of you. So, if I did manage to leap out of a helicopter and not plummet straight to the ground like a boulder with armpit flaps, chances are, I'd find the only coniferous tree located above the timberline, and I'd plow straight into it.
