Do you think there would be less participation if more focus was on the aftermath of BASE accidents? I don't think anyone ever jumps without 5 GoPros rolling. Not that Im advocating a Faces of Death montage to discourage others. I personally would like to see more attention paid to the family/friend devastation. Just seems so risky. Especially considering attitude echoed post incident is always something like "he was had every variable planned out/freak accident/he was so careful/I can't believe it happened". It really takes some mental gymnastics to see the best around you die and think that you're somehow different. Seems akin to being a professional russian-roulette player. Also, would you consider BASE jumping a sport(just what the hell is a sport?)?
