Promposal of the Day: Guy Asks Girlfriend to Prom By Jumping Out of a Plane

One guy from Connecticut has taken the “promposal” to new heights, literally.

High school students across the country have been coming up with creative ways of asking their dates to prom.

We’ve seen a guy stupidly pretend to be a suicide bomber and one kid who made a girl cry after she made fun of his elaborate road signs.

Eddie Staten wanted to do something extreme as well, and so he decided to express his love for his girlfriend by leaping out of a plane.

In the video, Staten holds up a sign that just reads “Talia, Prom?” It’s short, sweet and to the point, but apparently that was not enough.

The rest of the clip shows him skydiving with an instructor from a company called Skydive Danielson, who encourages his girlfriend to go with him.

“I hope she says yes,” Staten says while falling.

She did, according to NBC.

He performed the stunt at Pastranaland in Maryland on April 28, and he has pent the last year preparing for it.

Travis Pastrana, who owns the park, was the first to perform a double backflip back in 2006.

Extreme Sports of the Day: Watch People Jump Off the Princess Tower in Dubai

Just watching this might make your palms sweat.

A bunch of thrill seekers in Dubai recently leapt 1300 feet off the Princess Tower, which is known as the world’s second tallest residential-only building (next to 432 Park Avenue in New York).

The stunt dubbed “Dream Jump Dubai” was a collaboration between SkydiveDubai, XDubai and a Polish company called Dream World which has created a mechanism that allows you to “experience freefall without deploying a parachute.”

The DreamJump system uses multiple zip lines and a harness, and it lets you drop for a longer amount of time than you can with just a bungee cord.

“Bungee is just one rope. This has two, so it is safer and more comfortable,” the creator, Thomas Zielinski, told The National. “If you use bungee, the experience can be like giving birth. This is more like eating an ice cream.”

Only ice cream doesn’t come with the risk of ending up on the ground flattened like a pancake.

There were also about 558 terrifying base jumps off the platform over the course of 6 days.
