It’s Not The Fall That Kills You — It’s The Sudden Stop At The End

It’s Not The Fall That Kills You — It’s The Sudden Stop At The End

Falling down has never looked this good. I think the whole not dying part helps make it a lot more appealing than it normally would be. I’m all for falling off of high things, but I have stuff to do afterwards. I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t like the idea of coughing up my splintered shins after a decent fall. I’m a proponent of falling off of small ledges and other obstacles that you can safely walk away from afterwards. Every once in a while, some pansy might rupture their spleen, but what difference does it make? As long as no one goes splat, there isn’t an issue.

If you want to fall off of higher things, you should consider consulting a falling specialist. Have a few practice runs where you toss other things off the ledge before you go over. If the things you throw over shatter into a million pieces or explode into a bloody pulp, you should try wearing a parachute. Have friends or enemies try jumping off in your place if you’re not entirely comfortable with doing it yourself. If you decide to fall off after them, they’ll cushion your fall and offer superior back support when you hit the ground.
