I Know There Was A Happy Ending, But This Is Why I’ll Never Go Skydiving

You’ve probably heard about the insane skydiving accident that occurred this weekend near Lake Superior in Wisconsin. Two planes carrying nine seasoned skydivers collided at 12,000 feet and miraculously, everyone including the pilots survived. Even crazier: the skydivers’ helmet cams caught the entire crash and plummeting fall. The teeny, tiny part of me that was curious about skydiving is now dead. These are the things nightmares are made of. Seriously, thank God they all survived. In other news, can we talk about how NBC news paid the skydivers $100,000 for the rights to air the video and lock them in for interviews? That seems a little shady to me. [GawkerNY Daily News]
