Hey, sometimes I even amaze myself! When you said that scrabble was 'closest', I figured that some kind of game or puzzle must be involved, and probably one without multiple pieces (which would scatter during a skydive). So I just took a shot at something that was a type of game/puzzle that was one-piece that could be manipulated while skydiving.

FYI - the "jumping with no chute and obtaining one while falling" was done in 2 James Bond movies: in Moonraker, Bond steals a chute from a man who jumped out ahead of him, and in Goldeneye he free-falls and jumps into an unmanned plane in mid-air and guides the plane to safety. Also, Shwarzenegger did a similar stunt in "Eraser", where he leaves the plane with no chute, but chases down a jumper in mid-air and steals his chute. Supposedly all these stunts are done by stunt jumpers wearing chutes under their clothes.

I've never seen those movies - didn't they do something similar in Point Break as well?

OOC, can anyone here solve a Rubik's cube? I used to be able to, but have since forgotten. Although I know someone who can compete with the best.
