I’ve always been terrified of heights, sky-diving would be last on my list of fun things to do, but there’s something about the 20 parachutes that seems really safe. I like it, i might try it.
Weren’t you paying attention? It doesn’t work with that many!
Yeah, 20 is too many. The maximum number of allowable parachutes for them to still be functional is 17.
You can never be too safe!Why not go without ANY parachutes? According to dedidiotive logic, that would be the funnest way to go. Wooh! I’m definitelly trying that the next time I go skydiving
i’d perfer air bag suit via mars lander
kangaroo’s idea is sweet
Why not do it like the Mythbusters and use one of those air-filled slides from big planes? Or a life boat.
You know what they say, as soon as your first one fails, you have the rest of your life to deploy the backup
Ya know, with 17 (or 20) parachutes… you won’t be falling ever again, you’ll just float around on the wind for all of eternity until the nylon shreds after hundreds of years of weather abuse…
You don’t need a parachute to skydive, you need a parachute to skydive twice.
Reading the other comics, that’s the first quote that came to my mind XD
Biff is the last person you would expect to be over-cautious. About anything. So this comes as quite a surprise to me.
I could survive skydiving without a parachute, Provided I made sure to jump over the Mattress Factory, The Amazing Jello House, The World’s largest beenie store, And the empty lot filled with ridiculously overstuffed pillows.
Remember, kids: If at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving isn’t for you.
You need a parachute to skydive once, you need a working parachute to skydive twice.
Biff’s logic is that with 20 chutes, 20 times the fun.
Why not jump out of a helicopter with just one parachute? (bonus points for anyone who knows why this is stupid)
only if you open it right away, right?
no, because it’s against regulations to go witfout a backup
A) Why are they all deployed before he left the plane? Don’t they start in the backpacky thing and then deploy at a certain height? If they just layed behind you they’d deploy right off the bat and something about deploying it too high is bad.
B) Assuming they’re not manual-only parachutes, more than one alone would be bad. One would steal the other’s wind and it would collapse. Also the strings would get all tangled and you’d get to return to the ground faster than you expected.
Hey Kardas, it’s because the down draft will cause the parachute to collapse, and you’ll fall to the ground fast enough to fracture the dirt.
Why, Biff, WHYYY?!
Actually, that looks quite fun.
Ala Ed and Al in FMA book 1:
Ed: AAAAAH! WIND PRESSURE, WIND PRESSURE!
haha, anything FMA is good
So he’s just gonna hang out the side of the plane for the rest of the flight? Since the plane’s going hundreds of miles per hour, that should be good enough, right?
Yay! horrizantal skydiving!
It’s that darned sideways gravity again, only this time from the other side!
That almost looks like fun.
Well, taking the helicopter question seriously, JUMPING out of a helicopter is a bad idea depending on how HIGH you jump, unless you want a really close haircut like Biff did.
Also, the downdrafts from the helicopter rotors would just blow you down faster….
Now skydiving out of the spacestation, there’s an idea worth exploring..
*concerning John’s comment*
Ooh! There Biff wouldn’t have to worry if he had 20 or 54 parachutes ^^

That just reminded me of that cheezy Batman Movie, where Batman’s helicopter gets shot down, and he lands on a pile of matrisses…
Robin: Wow what are the odds of landing here?
Batman: I dont know, but I could have sworn I saw it out of the corner of my eye!
……It’s hard to tell people how great this comic is, and clean, when people swear on the comments.
If at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving is not for you!
Biff though, thats different…
and the falling…
I love falling. 8D It’s just the sudden stop at the end that’s a bit of a bummer.
Look closely. The green is the straps. The brown mass is all the packed chutes.
if at first you don’t succeed, do not try skydiving.
