    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.

  2. LordRetard says:

    Weren’t you paying attention? It doesn’t work with that many!

  3. carrie says:

    Yeah, 20 is too many. The maximum number of allowable parachutes for them to still be functional is 17.

  4. Joseph Fitch says:

    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

  6. Jesus says:

    kangaroo’s idea is sweet

  7. Meneh says:

    Why not do it like the Mythbusters and use one of those air-filled slides from big planes? Or a life boat.

  8. Yuccadude says:

    You know what they say, as soon as your first one fails, you have the rest of your life to deploy the backup

  9. Chryssta says:

    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…

  10. Jetman123 says:

    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

  11. Eirikr says:

    Biff is the last person you would expect to be over-cautious. About anything. So this comes as quite a surprise to me.

  12. Vex says:

    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.

  13. Jake says:

    Remember, kids: If at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving isn’t for you.

  14. Warcrime says:

    You need a parachute to skydive once, you need a working parachute to skydive twice.

  15. Rogue Psyker says:

    Biff’s logic is that with 20 chutes, 20 times the fun.

  16. Kardas says:

    Why not jump out of a helicopter with just one parachute? (bonus points for anyone who knows why this is stupid)

  17. ViSys says:

    only if you open it right away, right?

  18. colin says:

    no, because it’s against regulations to go witfout a backup

  19. Nick says:

    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.

  20. zantarath says:

    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.

  21. Female Fox Furry says:

    Why, Biff, WHYYY?!

  22. Thebobert5 says:

    Actually, that looks quite fun.

  23. Malachite Dragon says:

    Ala Ed and Al in FMA book 1:
    Ed: AAAAAH! WIND PRESSURE, WIND PRESSURE!

  24. Oddly Frozen says:

    haha, anything FMA is good

  25. Demonprophet says:

    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?

  26. Darkpheonix XIII says:

    Yay! horrizantal skydiving!

  27. Mint Sharpie says:

    It’s that darned sideways gravity again, only this time from the other side!

  28. DemonRex says:

    That almost looks like fun.

  29. Johnmadden says:

    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..

  30. Kanki-chan says:

    *concerning John’s comment*

    Ooh! There Biff wouldn’t have to worry if he had 20 or 54 parachutes ^^

    “Vex Says:

    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!

  32. Elkian says:

    ……It’s hard to tell people how great this comic is, and clean, when people swear on the comments.

  33. Moriarty Matherson says:

    If at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving is not for you!

    Biff though, thats different…

  34. KatzeWerfer says:

    and the falling…

  35. Hornswaggler says:

    I love falling. 8D It’s just the sudden stop at the end that’s a bit of a bummer.

  36. Kaz says:

    Look closely. The green is the straps. The brown mass is all the packed chutes.

  37. spidercow says:

    if at first you don’t succeed, do not try skydiving.
