    Cool And now for something completely different

    Skydiving from 29000 ft near Mt Everest and landing at "the highest drop zone on the planet".

    Link

    Seems a bit insane to me.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best. And always look on the bright side of life.

    If they are landing at 12,500 feet they wont be that close to Mount Everest.

    Its really just a high altitude jump next to a big mountain.

    And he climbed to the summit. And he almost made me gag the other night when he took a bite out of a live snake.

    What about the episode where he ate the yak heart and eyeballs?? Joe loves grossing me out when he takes bites out of things LOL And I don't have a weak stomach, I just think it is disgusting.
