BASE Jumping

12 Apr

Today I learned what the “BASE” acronym stands for in “BASE Jumping” from the tragic article below.

BASE is an acronym for building, antenna, span, earth, the four categories of objects from which one can jump in the extreme sport.

Maybe it should stand for “beyond acceptable statistical evaluation” or “beyond any sane evaluation”…
