  • 7% - Sure, if I could afford it. 482
  • 6.9% - Maybe, if it could somehow be guaranteed I wouldn’t die. 478
  • 80.9% - No way, too scary. 5570
  • 5.1% - No way, just not my thing. 354

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I'd vote "HELL YEAH, Wahooo". Too bad it is not an option. It's not like you would feel any impact if you hit the ground. At least not for long.

No problemo! I dig the $5 coupons I've got in the past, and I like woot a lot, so I help out when I can. ;)

I've jumped from 10k before. It was fantastic.

First time skydiving story: we were taking off in the plane and I was seated right next to the door. These planes have basic metal benches in them, not like airline seats or anything, and I am about two feet from the door. A minute after we took off, I asked the instructor if the door was still supposed to be open, and he responded, "Whoops!" and closed the door.

Holy cats! Why are so many wooters afraid? What time of year is this? FALL! Perfect for a high altitude fall, right?

This reminds me of how many people think I was nuts to go swimming in the middle of the ocean. "It's thousands of feet down." "You can't see what's underneath you." True and true, but so what? Once it's deep enough that I can't touch the bottom, why should I care whether it's 10 feet deep or 10,000 feet deep?

Okay, so jumping from 10,000 feet is not the same as from the upper atm. So? As long as you're geared up properly, you'll have a lot more time to enjoy the feeling and the scenery!
