I don’t normally suggest that people jump off tall cliffs (and with good reason), but there are times when it can help. For example, if you’re being chased by a ravening tiger (or other large cat), it can help to jump headlong from a cliff, since the animal may be disinclined to take such a drastic course. And yet clear-thinking man will not give it a second thought — proof, if it were needed, of man’s superiority over the brute beast.
Now I’m not suggesting that we all start leaping off cliffs (Heaven forfend!), but I am saying that we should not be embarrassed to do so, if the need arises. So let’s take the stigma out of jumping off cliffs, and finally recognise the enormous contribution made every year by cliff-jumpers around the world.
Thank you for your time.
