2/17/2004: Record skydive
What we have today is a new world record for greatest number of skydivers involved in a jump. It's 357 divers, from 42 countries, diving in Thailand.
They finished the job on their last opportunity, jumping from four separate C130s at 24,000 feet, and somehow linking up for a total of 6 seconds. The whole thing was monitored by international judges.
Good work I say. Good work.

I jumped with the army and it's completly different but extremly thrilling. If you have the opportunity, jump!

it's a shame to see an opportunity wasted like that.
357 divers, and they couldn't spell "Eat at Joe's?" or "Whale Penis"? I mean if you're gonna dream, dream big, man.
i wish they would consult me beforehand with things like this. it's all in the planning. sheesh

In January, 672 divers set a record in Bangkok. Maybe Radar saw it.

Get real. He hasn't been out of the hotel room yet.
Oh, except for the time he had to carry her parents out of the room and park them in the lobby. For the rest of the honeymoon.
