       Provide a link, or I will stuff this idea, apple and all, with a croissant. [21 Quest]

       Pretty much anyone from South of the Manson-Nixon line should do ...

       I LOVE this idea. All it needs is the addition of a piñata attack on the way down, with nothing but a baseball bat to defend yourself.

I've not heard of this - does it run from the San Fernando Valley to a phone in a Washington, D.C. hotel?

       //but I wonder if it would even be possible without crushing the apple.   

       Or one's face, for that matter.

       I recall seeing a TV bit about some fellow who got his bungeeing precise enough that he was able to bungee-drop to the ground, quick-release his harness, and watch the bungees go snaking back up without him, whilst staggering just a bit on landing. I offer that as the best precison of the sport, and ask if the apples will be floating in water, resting on concrete, or impaled on some wicked spikes?   

       Bun if spikes.

       + very cute, but seeing that apple trees aren't all that big/tall, would one really consider it an *extreme* sport?... how about bungeeing for coconuts?

       Sequioa-nuts.

       The forces should be roughly those of your head striking the ground. Veterans of the sport likely to be toothless.

       This has been baked (with CGI) by Carling in their advertisements. Perhaps they lifted the idea from here...
