    I was watching on Discovery Channel HD... After the spin and chute deployment, he landed on his feet!

    They should have dropped a cat first. :laugh:

    I can't find anything yet, but I'm sure it'll be published soon.

    I had it playing on my computer but I was busy getting a replacement hard drive and waiting for AAA to jump my car after I fixed my exhaust which also broke. Doh! No muffler on a turbo'ed car is loud. :p
