I don't know about everybody else but
when ski jumpers are in the air, they get
into a position and hardly move at all until
it is time to touch down. All this effort is
based on aerodynamics and trajectory, but
if physical strength could make them go
farther, that would make it less boring
me to watch (although, i've never really
The solution is simple, Wings. The wings
are not to be humangous or fixed, but
should be like cocoroach wings, fitted
along the back until the olympian spreads
his arms to his side, opening his wings,

with rules and regulations that might not record such
attempts as new records? Such thinking is shear
folly! Landing a wingsuit whether or not one is
wearing fat jumping skis will be a huge turning point
for human flight and being the first will last much
longer in history than any ski jumping distance
||I'm still investigating which candy manufacturer produces cocoroaches.
||YES! and every jumper has to have different wings and a suit to match, so they look like giant parrots, or eagles, or crows. go crow! and their skis have to be orange, and they have to wear three on each foot.

the left side of this page.
