Imagine if you were rock climbing and a few of these fuckers zoomed by.

I'd pee my pants.

In-freakin-credible! That takes guts!

If they put extensions on their arms and legs (even just 1ft.) to increase the wingspan surface, I bet they could fly much longer, and control their speed better, more like a glider.

Holy crap!

It made my hands sweat just watching the guy lean out from the bridge to show how close they get.

You said both things I was going to say. Hands were sweating, but I think that guy sitting on the bridge made me more nervous than the flying squirrels.

I've always wanted to try skydiving... this stuff is just insane though. Imagine flying that close to the wall only to have a gust of wind knock you into it!
