Precipice! I just love that word. PRECIPICE.

On the subject of the ubiquitous LiveJournal "memes", paka said: You know, if everyone I knew jumped off a cliff, I might be too busy following to notice.

So here's a new meme!

Pick your favorite precipice! If your friends all jumped off a high place...

  1. Where? Bridge? Cliff? Roof? Airplane? Any specific place?

  2. How? The classic swan dive? In a car, like Thelma & Louise? Or are you gonna wimp out with a Bungee cord or a hang glider?

  3. When? Day or night? Quietly, or will you wait for the media and the helicopters?

  4. Soundtrack?

    Be creative! Bonus points for scenic photos!

My answers...

  1. Where? Bridge? Cliff? Roof? Airplane? Any specific place?
    Bixby Bridge, Big Sur, California.
    Bixby Bridge
    An absolutely spectacular locale from any angle -- but you only really grasp how HIGH it is when you see it from the a boat off the coast. Which I did, several times, in my Coast Guard days.

  2. How? The classic swan dive? In a car, like Thelma & Louise? Or are you gonna wimp out with a Bungee cord or a hang glider?
    The Thelma & Louise route, definitely -- if I could find a convenient Reynolds Ramp as a launch point.

  3. When? Day or night? Quietly, or will you wait for the media and the helicopters?
    Right at sunset.

  4. Soundtrack?
    Meat Loaf. "Bat Out Of Hell". Naturally.


And no, I have no inclination to go driving off a bridge in the immediate future. Lighten up!
