What happens to your water heater if the thermostat and pressure relief valve get stuck?

Okay, maybe not funny, but pretty neat. Imagine flying/falling through the fjords at at about 100MPH a few feet from the rocks, but without an aircraft.

This Video Is Crazy Unbelievable : Awesomeology

If this is your hobby, you might not need to worry about FIRE. I think things would take care of themselves.

That is amazing! How do they slow down and land? I am one of those people who have flying dreams frequently so I am envious.

I'd guess the parachutes they're wearing on their back have a lot to do with it.
