You have to see this…
World record-breaking vertical skydiving.
Head first, to earth.
At 220 mph.
And check out this brave blogger’s Venezuela skydiving video.
But hold on to something first!
Just saw this & had to share it!
This comment captioned the video on Quora, where I originally found it:
I first encountered them intimately in the rain forests of Madagascar.
Every night, when I stepped under the waterfall in the river where I bathed, I spent the first 10 min. or so gently scraping them off my body…
…from my belly, inner thighs, the back of my neck, behind my ears & knees, underneath my arms, between my toes…
…and other unmentionable heat-generating areas. 😯
And the winner of yesterday’s Valentine’s Day Opt-Out poll is….
But it’s much more than Kimchi-kisses that keeps North Koreans from celebrating V-Day love…

Her name is Severn Cullis-Suzuki.
She is the daughter of world-renown environmental activist David Suzuki.
She was 12 years old when she gave this impassioned speech that silenced a forum at the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit – a forum of international diplomats and power mongers, all brought to tears by the pleas of a child.
