If you have a hankering to bungee-jump from a 700-foot dam . . .
. . . or to ride a motorcycle off a cliff to see if you can catch up to a runaway plane, then this piece has a few useful tips for you. Yellow long-johns are the recommended outfit for the dam leap, and it's best to descend on an empty stomach, especially if there's a pedestrian walkway below your jumping stanchion. Apparently, it doesn't matter if your tummy's full or not when you motorcycle off a mountain plateau, however, since even the stunt man subbing for "James Bond Agent 007" is NOT seen to catch up to the pilot-less plane in the behind-the-scenes footage included here. Presumably, he deployed a "hidden" parachute to survive that way (as opposed to the sound stage trickery featuring Pierce Brosnan as Bond shown in the GOLDENEYE Pre-titles sequence), as no stunt deaths are referred to here. If you have a "golden parachute" from a corporation teetering on the verge of a bankruptcy or a government liquidation, the motorcycle stunt might make for a perfectly unforgettable final exit. If not, stick with the dam jump. It worked for Bond: Why not for you?
