Back in 2007 I did my first (and to date, only) bungee jump. And yes, I'd probably do it again. This was in Canada at a place that boasted having the longest legal jumps in the North America. I was wearing my George Carlin shirt which had the title of his 3rd book printed on the back, "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" You'll need this for reference later on. Keep reading.
If you've never done this, I don't know how to describe it. But I'll try anyway. The only hard part is making that initial leap. But man, you have to fight against all those billions of years of natural instinct in your brain that screams "Don't jump down from a high place!" You need a few seconds to clear your mind of that. On top of this, there was a zip line 50 feet in front of me which had people screaming as they went down. Made it hard to concentrate. It also didn't help that the people working there were like, "Ready? OK: 3, 2, go!" Finally I took a deep breath, looked at the horizon, and just allowed myself to fall forward.
Though when I close my eyes and think back to the jump itself, I can feel the adrenaline rush again. Such a simple device we've made, but so incredible.
Here's video footage with my own text commentary. And what I yelled as I was falling (kudos to people who get the horror movie reference).
The guy who picked me up saw my George Carlin shirt, and in his thick French Canadian accent said, "Zo, who eez Jarge Carlin, and why doze ee want to bring me pork chops?"
