"I think so many people have had dreams of falling, and falling, and falling, and falling, and falling... that doesn't scare them.  Hittin' the ground at a hundred and twenty miles an hour and not being able to walk away from it, that's what scare's 'em."

- Don Jacobson, BASE Jumper "Stealing Altitude"
