This is a video of skydive instructor Brianne Thompson setting her parachute on fire with a flare gun to illustrate the importance of always packing a backup. Obviously, Brianne DID pack a spare and was able to land safely. I performed a similar demonstration when I pooped my pants at the office this morning after chugging six cups of coffee. Unfortunately, I forgot to pack a backup so I'm writing from a bathroom stall until my roommate comes to save the day. I mean, IF he comes to save the day. Hold on, he's calling. Hello? Yes, in the top drawer. THEN PUT A GLOVE ON TO MOVE THE SEX TOYS, BUT I NEED SOME CLEAN BOXERS STAT.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Kim, who learned this is why you should never shoot your parachute with a flare gun.
