So, you think you got a pair....
 
Think you got a pair that goes clank when you walk??

Think you are pretty good at math??

Think you are "braver" than most everyone you know??

Well, step right up and try this out on your next week off....

On the right side of youtube, there is another video that shows the same guy at the base of the jump with a car test dummy, and all sorts of mathematical and weather guaging equipment.

The story I got was that this guy was trying to prove how good he is at math, while on his '"vacation".

Watch the guys' arms and legs kick in the air - it sure looks real to me...

RU Nuts? :eek: Devout coward here. Cautious C3 they used to call me.

There has to be someone around to write up the citations for all those brave souls. And to comfort the grieving ladies!

Folks have asked me if I still jump for "fun". Like hell! Why not ask a Bomb Disposal Officer if he goes out doing amateur EOD work on weekends? I also do not bungee jump, and try to keep several zip codes between me and people in that video!!!

This was a promotion done by Microsoft that was supposed to only be viewed by Germans. It was produced by a German ad company. It is a fake but a really well done fake. Somehow it is supposed to make you want to buy Office or Project or some MS product but it became more popular than anyone expected.

That sucks! I was digging the story that this dude had something to prove and he was just that smart.

Damn it. I was really hoping this was the real deal and I did several checks, but didn't read that page.

Stupid MSFT. :mad:
