    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    That is very cool! As close as it gets to being a bird.

    Looks like a lot of fun to me.

    It's funny how the development of it couldn't have come without the developments that have brought skydiving to what it is.

    I wonder how prevalent this kind of thing will become in the future. It's just impossible to calculate.

    That might very well be the coolest thing in the entire world, ever! It's like the flying equivalent of a motorcycle.
