        Since you are in the neighborhood of where that was filmed in Norway, is that something you would do?
        I don't think I would do it, but it does look fun.

              I was wondering where the video came from.
              Seemed to me like it should have been part of a full commercial production.
              Seven Sunny Days: Short Stories From A Long Winter (2007)

              http://video.google....795241762851444

              The initial video links I posted are found here:
              --- see 27:30 to 31:14 of the first google link.

                    Of course, we plan to do some fancy formation skydiving, although for spectators on the ground to be able to see us we do have to pull the cords VERY late.
                    Sadly squirrels depth perception is very poor with goggles on...during practice we did see quite a few unfortunate "impacts"

                      Attention Mr. Gollum:

                      We have been informed of your recent activities and it is absolutely appalling to witness WWII tactics being using today on innocent bystanders who paid good money to watch the aerial event with their families on this fine occasion. Your entry into the event was a source of concern from many of the normally silent partners who sponsor this event and I had assured them that the festivities would only be heightened by your antics and that no harm would come out of your participation. Had I known that you have been deploying the use of mind altering drugs in your training camps the decision would have been made quite differently. Since the past cannot be changed, bad choices cannot be altered, I have been given no choice but to remand you to the court system where you will stand accused of deliberately releasing your swarm of Kamikaze Squickens onto a crowd of helpless civilians.

                      You Have been served.

                          An open letter in reply:

                          We acknowledge the concerns and questions raised by the organizing committee, and we apologise to the public who may/may not have been injured and/or killed by the mishap that occurred during our formation skydiving routine.

                          We would like to address some of the points referred to....

                          deploying the use of mind altering drugs in your training camps

                          At no time have we ever issued any of our skydivers, be they human, squirrel or squicken, ANY drugs of ANY kind.
                          We employee a rigorous regimen of drug testing on all participants both the day of the drop, and at 3 monthly intervals before the drop day.
                          Now if youve ever tried to get a squirrel or squicken to piss into a cup, then you'll know we take this poo seriously.

                          Obviously we cannot gaurantee that our participants are 100% dope free 100% of the time, we do frisk search participants in addition to piss screening, but again, if youve any idea how difficult it is to cavity search small animals, they you might have some empathy. Luckily i myself am a qualified cavity searcher form way back and got my start on small furry creatures....

                          releasing your swarm of Kamikaze Squickens onto a crowd of helpless civilians

                          As stated before the event, squirrels and squickens have VERY poor depth perception with goggles on, but we bowed to the pressure put on us by your health and safety lecture and the threat of cancellation of our display if we did not equip them as requested.

                          Any injury caused as a result of your insistance of "adequate eye safety equipment" should be borne by you and the cost of any funeral or any medical procedure (including the rather ironic circumstance where spectators found themselves blinded by the beaks of falling squicken) for any unfortunate spectators will be forwarded to you.

                          Good day.

                          Part of the conversation after highlander999 convinced me to try Vista for a second time, and after i removed it and caught up with him:

                          Me: Stop talking about it in a positive way, it makes me want to cut myself, just to feel something again
                          John: Found a new signature did ya?

                            Now, watching the video a few times of the guys flying around in their gay suites, the novelty of it all wares off rather quickly. For the ultimate thrill and to up the stakes a bit, I would propose that we all meet/join up with our own army of highly trained special forces mutant squickens and let them do a tight formation dive/jump at night with no moon and wearing full army gear, 120-140 lb:s S.A.S. style attacking either the native furry guerilla "The Lemmings" or we will just let them have a go at each other. May the best squicken win.
