    Besides, they wrote it not me. :-"

    Who cares about the Queen, she probably doesn't even know what country she's the Queen of she's so docile.

    Anywho, I've heard about this too and it's not the largest jump in history. A Russian got that during the war and landed in loads of snow covered trees, softened his landing.

    Nick Alkemade! I've met this man! A loooong time ago, I'm sure of it!
    Agh!! I wish I could remember where or why, but I'm dead certain of it! I was just a kid, and I think it had something to do with my school. I knew that story sounded too familiar! I know I've met this man in person!

    Thanks for the link, Med! :thumbright:
