At first I thought this was a video about Jerry Falwell, but then I noticed the hyphen.

Is it me or does it seem like the first jumper was trying to kill himself. All the other guys had parachutes, he didn`t.

"The cave is also a popular Vertical Caving destination. Rappelling to the bottom of the cave typically takes a few minutes, and ascending back out an hour or more. The high side of the entrance is covered in heavy foliage, so cavers will typically fix their rope on the low side, which is clear of obstructions and easily accessed" that Wikipedia answers

"rods have been filmed here"

Madest, Rods have been proven to be everyday bugs flying too fast for the camera. So it creates a double image effect for the camera, giving us the "Rods".

Dang, I didn`t even know the Earth was for sale!! Does that mean... your mom owns everyone/everything now...?

I`ve been working on a model of the universe for quite some time, but since I decided to make it in 1:1 scale, it`s taking a bit longer than I planned...

Wait, I`ve got it! It`s the Cave of SWALLOWS right?? Well are they African or European swallows, cause if they`re African swallows, they could grip the cavers by the husk and carry them out, or carry them on a string between two of them... except African swallows are non-migratory of course...

Why do they always say things like "deep enough to engulf the Empire State Building"?? Just in case any viewer was planning on uprooting it and bringing it here and throwing it in?

Meh, I won`t even consider a hole unless it swallows... (goes and stands in corner)

> How the drat do they parachute their way back OUT

Maybe it`s called the Cave of Swallows because it swallows up everyone who ever parachutes in there and no-one ever comes out again? Oh ok, they wouldn`t do it every time, but I`ve seen footage of a helicopter emerging from this cave - now THAT`S one brave-ass pilot.

vv "The Cave of Swallows"... "Not to be confused with the "Cave of Spits""

tisk, the two essentially amount to the same thing, but the Cave of Swallows is somehow more satisfying on a deeply-ingrained, primordial level.
