Bungee jumping (or bungy jumping) is the sport of jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large rubber band. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge, or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or a helicopter, that has the ability to hover over one spot on the ground; fixed-wing aircraft are clearly unsuitable because they only stay aloft when moving rapidly forward. The intense thrill comes as much from the free-falls as from the rebounds When the person jumps, the cord stretches to absorb the energy of the fall, then the jumper flies upwards again as the cord snaps back. The jumper oscillates up and down until all the energy is used up.

*******tinyurl****/TheAlternEnergy Eco-friendliness and cost-efficiency are two MAJOR benefits of owning a home wind turbine. As these turbines harness the natural power of the wind, the absence of any chemical gasses is a WONDERFUL thing about these power-generating devices, making our Earth a much cleaner play to live.The home wind turbine performs it's job of creating electricity by channeling wind into generator. From atop a tall tower, three large "fan" blades attach to a rotor, which turns to power the generator. Much like a weather vain, the rotor of this turbine is equipped with a tail-fin to continually position it in the direction of the wind. Commonly, the generator is a electric motor. This motor has coils which circle around powerful magnets, thereby creating a charge of electricity. Power cells (think giant rechargeable batteries) accumulates energy which is then transformed into electricity by an inverter to be utilized throughout your residency. Home wind turbine are a favorite in the world of alternative power-generating devices due to vast improvements in their superior motor technology. The overall height of your system will be contingent on wind conditions in your region. In areas with light to moderate winds, a very tall structure is needed. If the area you live in is prone to high winds, such as on the coast, the structure does not have to be as tall. Wind Turbines for the Home - Home Wind Turbine
