I'm not afraid of heights. I've been to the top of Willis (Sears) Tower in Chicago, and the Arch in St. Louis three times each and never had a problem. Even did the Ferris Bueller thing at Sears (stand on the window ledge with your forehead against the glass looking straight down) and I was never fazed.

However, I've owned a ranch home for the past 13+ years, and I've never once been on my own roof. Why? Because I AM afraid of FALLING. IMO there IS a difference. I can be at a high level, and as long as I have solid footing (and I'm not near the edge) I am fearless. Ladders are not my best friend, either.

After watching this video, I think I can say that I would never take the plunge. I just don't think my heart or my psyche could handle the overwhelming fear of falling or God forbid some sort of mechanical malfunction.

One thing that I seemed to notice watching this video: When you watch the view from one of the Go Pro cameras, it seems as though the fall happens MUCH quicker than if you view it from one of the "onlooker" viewpoints.

I would feel a bit better if there was a pool under the net in case it gave way.

I'd like to think I'd do it, but I'd probably chicken out.

It seemed to be an average of about 2 seconds. I'd probably do it. I'm good for a few seconds. Just ask my wife. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You are so wrong. I wear capri pants when I go to an amusement park.

That actually looks relatively safe for anything freefall. Not even that far a drop.

:lol: I looked at it and wondered why they didn't have something softer than concrete under that net.. How about just dirt.

watching that video i was very observing where the people were landing. All pretty much dead center.. But what about wind gusts??
