    Video of a hang glider desperately hanging on to the glider

    Dude wasn't properly attached, which resulted in 2 amazing minutes of video.

    Studies show that fear of falling increases grip strength by something like 2% or so.

    What's the big deal?
    This is just how it was always done back in the early days of hang gliding before they invented safety harnesses.

    But just to err on the side of caution, I'd probably avoid doing any skydiving with that same guy who's in charge of the hang gliding experience.

    First thing I would do is go hang gliding again
    with the same person.
    Fall off a horse get back on,the odds of lighting
    striking twice etc etc...
