The sport of banzai skydiving involves throwing a parachute out of a flying plane and then jumping after it, the aim being to catch up with it, strap it on and deploy the parachute before hitting the ground.

Craig Glenday, editor of Guinness World Records, has used Banzai Skydiving as an extreme example of the book's policy to keep records for record categories in which only the life of the participant would be put at risk. As a counter-example, he indicates that record attempts that might put another person or animal at risk, such as "fattest pet," are not allowed.

well then you would have to be a total moron. There's thrill and then there's just total stupidity. Kinda off the topic...... I asked my wife what she always wanted to do before she died and she said skydiving. So I bought her a lesson for xmas the year before last. Got the certificate in the mail wrapped it all up and she was thrilled when she opened it. (i think i got sex that night, but i don't remember) A couple weeks later I was in a local store and saw a guy with the skydiving bumper sticker from that company so I ask him how it was and we start talking. I tell him I got the wife a lesson. He says I hope you can get a refund the guy just went to prison for 15 years for DWI manslaughter. Guess what? no refund $350.00 out the window.
