Naked Skydiving

Discovery of the photo (below) online reminded me of my early days in SL. At a long now defunct naturist place I took my first naturist sky dive. An incredibly fun experience, even ‘virtually’.

So we rounded up a willing model -someone who had never done any naked skydiving in SL before- and took her over to Su Casa for the trip of a lifetime.

Don’t forget to ‘buy’ (L$0) a terra-chute before setting off. Without it you’re going to hit the ground pretty hard! 🙂

PC2

We got our model, Tina, to set the height to its max, 4000m.  Here we see her beginning to drop into the clouds.

Hmm…I’ve got the photos out of sync. Her chute has opened and Tina glides to earth.

PC4

But just before her chute opened, she had a beautiful aerial view of Su Casa. The large red object is Su Casa’s hot air balloon.

PC5

Chute fully deployed, Tina is within feet of a perfect landing.

If you’ve never tried naked parchuting, I thoroughly recommend it. So much so that I’ve put it back on my SL ‘to do’ list. While we’ve also covered balloon rides in the past, I think it’s high time we did so again. Don’t you?

(edited to add…I was pointed in the direction of the photo below, in the wake of the blog post, so I’m happy to add it to the post)

    What Are You Hunting For?

    A lion is agile enough hunt and eat field mice if it wanted to, but the energy to catch them is greater than the caloric content of the mouse. So, if a lion spent his whole day hunting and eating field mice, it would slowly starve to death.

    A lion cannot live on field mice. Lions need antelopes. Antelopes are big. While they take more speed and strength to hunt, once successfully captured, they provide a huge feast for a lion and its pride.

    A lion can live a long, happy life on a diet of antelope. It will die chasing mice.

    Our world is filled with field mice: easy-to-achieve, short-term goals: obsessively emailing or checking our phones, mindless web-surfing, buying and maintaining stuff we don’t need. These tasks might even provide momentary satisfaction and pleasure, but they don’t give the nourishment necessary to make a meaningful life.

    It’s the antelopes that make our lives great. Acts like cultivating and maintaining relationships, developing real skills and contributing to something greater than ourselves. These things take more time and effort to accomplish, but in the end, they are the things that constitute a well-lived life.

    We have a finite amount of attention to give. Are we giving it to the field mice or antelopes?
