I think it may be something in Dubai. You could jump off the Watchoo Tawkin’ ‘Bout Willis building in Chicago.

Not the tallest building, but the New River Gorge Bridge is well known throughout the world for base jumping.

See the stunning movie, Man On Wire (What are fiences?)

It won the Oscar for foreign documentary last year.

“A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit’s daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City’s World Trade Center’s twin towers in 1974, what some consider, ‘the artistic crime of the century.’

Base jumping is illegal.

@gailcalled I think Jumpy means no fianc├ęs. My guess is that they would voice some reason and possibly prevent the dangerous stunt from taking place.

@peedub: Or no finances, possibly meaning being allowed to kill yourself without paying a service charge.

@Ivan On Oct.15th of each year it is not illegal to jump off of the bridge that I mentioned.

I’ve believe it’s the Burj Dubai in Dubai.
Be sure to have a lawyer that specializes in international criminal law because you’ll likely be arrested upon touchdown.
