I have already filmed a shark feeding frenzy underwater so I will take bat wing flying for $300,000 please! :)))

As much as I love the idea of being able to fly like that,I’d have to go with the sharks because I’m afraid of them.

Batwing flying, please! Assuming we get some training first!

I have dodged bullits and survived. i have been involved in knife fights and survived. i have been in 150 mph car chases and survived…........so, why stretch my luck with batwing flying? no amount of money on earth could entice me to attempt this. (i guess my older age is catching up with me). john

@lynneblundell @Cruiser Isn’t that one of the slickest things you ever seen? The only thing I worry about is if you can stall and lose your glide, at the wrong time that can get quite gnarly.

@tedibear I can assume anything like that, shark filming also, one would get enough training not to kill themselves outright hopefully.

@john65pennington Since you made it passed getting shot at and coming out on top in a knife fight maybe you would find a way to last 4 rounds with Manny, so long as you avoid his devastating left hook. :-)

How far do I have to fly? From how high? And does my family get the $300 large if I don’t make it?

Sign me up for the batwing flying! That looks like fun!

Yeah, I’ll take the flying too.

I’m curious to see how it compares to freefalling (I skydived once – accelerated freefall, not tandem) and hang gliding (a few times via aerotow, not running off a hill). I prefer hang gliding over skydiving, but this batwing thing looks like a mixture of the two.

The shark thing would probably give me nightmares. Not that I’m afraid of them per se, but I imagine it would be quite violent.

And, although I appreciate fighting for sport, there are many other things I’d rather do than participate.

@Seaofclouds Isn’t that a hoot? Make me want to ask where Bullwinkle is if you remember Rocky & Bullwinkle.

Seaofclouds's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central I remember Rocky & Bullwinkle. I actually had a bunch of those cartoons on VHS growing up.

Batwing flying.

I’ll take the ring with Manny. I think I’m quick enough to stay out of his way for 12 minutes. Also, a pro boxer isn’t fighting to kill, merely put his opponent down for a ten count.

Second choice is batwing. It’s similar to skydiving, which I’ve done before.
