    Stuntman to jump from 2,400 feet without parachute...

    This guy is going to jump from a helicopter wearing a specially designed wingsuit to slow down his speed before landing on 18,600 cardboard boxes...oh, and when it says WITHOUT parachute it means he will have an emergency parachute ...cheat

    The thought of it nearly made me pish myself.

    Anyone remember this one? Sung to John Browns Body.........

    He jumped without a parachute from forty thousand feet,
    He jumped without a parachute from forty thousand feet,
    He jumped without a parachute from forty thousand feet,
    And he ain't gonna jump no more

    Glory, glory what a helluva way to die,
    Hanging by your braces with your feet up in the sky
    Glory glory, what a helluva way to die
    And he ain't gonna jump no more.

    He landed on the runway like a lump of strawberry jam,
    He landed on the runway like a lump of strawberry jam,
    He landed on the runway like a lump of strawberry jam ,
    And he ain't gonna jump no more....

    Glory, glory what a helluva way to die,
    Hanging by your knickers from an airplane in the sky
    Glory glory, what a helluva way to die
    And he ain't gonna jump no more.

    They scraped him off the tarmac with a knife and fork and spoon,
    They scraped him off the tarmac with a knife and fork and spoon,
    They scraped him off the tarmac with a knife and fork and spoon,
    And he ain't gonna jump no more....

    Glory, glory what a helluva way to die,
    Swinging like a giant kite across the bright blue sky
    Glory glory, what a helluva way to die
    And he ain't gonna jump no more.

    They put him in an envelope and sent him home to Mum
    They put him in an envelope and sent him home to Mum
    They put him in an envelope and sent him home to Mum
    And he ain't gonna jump no more....

    Glory, glory what a helluva way to die,
    Dangling by your laces while your boots are way up high
    Glory glory, what a helluva way to die
    And he ain't gonna jump no more.

    She put him on the mantelpiece for all the world to see
    She put him on the mantelpiece for all the world to see
    She put him on the mantelpiece for all the world to see
    And he ain't gonna jump no more....

    Glory, glory what a helluva way to die,
    With your kneecap up your nostril and your finger in your eye
    Glory glory, what a helluva way to die
    And he ain't gonna jump no more.

    Thats nothing. Round these here parts we regularly jump from cliff tops with only a big sleeping bag and we land in a Tesco shopping trolley. Easy innit!
