    So I guess we need to re-name this thread "Someone is jumping out of a plane with a parachute tomorrow on live TV"

    He's landing with his back to the ground (as the show keeps stating). I'm guessing something will "go wrong" and he'll have to deploy the parachute, landing as how a normal person with a parachute would.

    If this happens, Fox will be ridiculed for a while.

    I haven't been this excited about Fox programming since Man Vs Beast ran on network tv back in 2003.

    Craziest thing I've ever saw. I couldn't even see the target.

    They said they made him jump with one but they let him jump without at the last minute. He didn't jump with a parachute.

    Wow that was nerve wracking - he didn't exactly hit the middle either.

    I've been watching the Astros, and it's pretty much like watching an entire team jump with no parachute.

    Need to see this. He should have done this on Sunday so that everyone would be talking about it on Monday.

    Whoa, just watched the vid. That is insane. Impressive! Respect. I mean you can't really test any of the logisitics, the net, the jump, nothing. You just have to do it. This is true test pilot heroism.

    Can someone explain that first video of the guy jumping out of a plane? The guy went through a much smaller window...and landed on his feet, but only bounced up like 15 feet after falling from thousands of feet...I dont see how that's real.
