wingsuit base jumping from Ali on Vimeo.
I have said that I would only sky dive if I was jumping in tandem with someone I was willing to die with (cause I'm not going out alone). Watching the video of these base jumpers got my heart racing...I have to say I envy the experience, though would never want to take such an extreme leap of faith. Beautiful! Amazing! Certifiable!

Rolling Stone has published a rather inflammatory story about John McCain. With that beautiful cover photo of Barack Obama a few months ago that depicts him as both human and Presidential (lapel pin and all), it is pretty clear that Rolling Stone has a partisan bent to their reporting of electoral politics. But to call McCain a "spoiled brat" seems like it is going too far. Granted, because of his military career and POW experiences, McCain's political life has a Teflon-quality to it. It seems the lack of a frank accounting of McCain's military and political history has been a glaring hole in the election coverage, but with this article Rolling Stone has gone to the extreme. What do you think? Is this the swift-boating of John McCain?
