    R.I.P you stupid person.

    I usually respect the dead people, but it's such an idiotic way to waste life.

    Dude, that stinks. I feel bad for his family, they gotta know that he has a very dangerous profession though. Doesn't look like he would have had enough time to pull a parachute even if he had one.

    That is just incredibly sad.

    Without the risk it just isn't the same. I bet he had done this tons of times.

    15 years? Odds get worse every time he did it.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
