Mind-blowing Thanksgiving video: Parachuting away from an avalanche

This year, instead of bringing some crappy side of green bean casserole to Thanksgiving, I'm just going to just show people this video, which is way more tasty.

Goo. That troglodyte brah in the middle sure called it when he said, "it doesn't get sicker than that!" In fact, I think I'll wear a 'chute next time I go to Vail: I'll cruise right over the Vista Bahn like a hero, land on the deck at Los Amigos and grab hold of a waiting margarita. Well, that or die in the process of trying.
