So I dont know if any of you heard that sometime ago Mythbusters said that they wanted to do a show devoted to video game myths. One of these myths they wanted to feature was the leap of faith. Not hearing anything about it, I thought I would have a look and see if anything became of this desire. While it does not look like Mythbusters has done a show with our leap of faith; I did come across a rather amusing article that tackled the plausibility of survival from jumping from such great heights into such a small amount of soft matter. Here is the link, have a read, quite funny:

About mythbusters... Really? I'd love to see them test a leap of faith but as that article pointed out - and as logic would certainly tell anyone - it's quite impractical. I did see someone on some show once jump into a huge stack of boxes from pretty high up and the first thing I thought was that he should've used a huge pile of hay. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
