Remember the Red Bull Stratos balloon jump by Felix Baumgartner a few years back? An incredible achievement, I'm sure you'll agree. Knowing of your passion for parachuting, Scotch, if you had the chance, would you have a go at that?
Undoubtedly a remarkable feat. But No - that was FAR beyond my pay grade! Many Hot-air Balloon jumps. Closest I got to the Stratosphere were HALO jumps from a mere 21,000'. -30c at the top and 2 minutes of free-fall is quite the experience ! The one thing that stands with these is watching my wrist altimeter go around twice !
I would and did jump from anything that could give me a lift !
