So fun to see professional improv-ers to totally lose it.

How to Jump from a Building into a Dumpster


How to Jump

1. Jump straight down. If you leap off and away from the building at an angle, your trajectory will make you miss the Dumpster. Resist your natural tendency to push off.

2. Tuck your head and bring your legs around. To do this during the fall, execute a three-quarter revolution—basically, a not-quite-full somersault. This is the only method that will allow a proper landing, with your back facing down.

3. Aim for the center of the Dumpster.


4. Land flat on your back so that when your body folds, your feet and hands meet. When your body hits any surface from a significant height, the body folds into a V. This means landing on your stomach can result in a broken back.

Be Aware

* If the building has fire escapes or other protrusions, your leap will have to be far enough out so you miss them on your way down. The landing target needs to be far enough from the building for you to hit it.

* The Dumpster may be filled with bricks or other unfriendly materials. It is entirely possible to survive a high fall (five stories or more) into a Dumpster, provided it is filled with the right type of trash (cardboard boxes are best) and you land correctly.

Providing the cardboard boxes aren't broken down and folded and stuffed into it.

Why? Wouldn't that still be a softer fall?

I'll test the two and compare...bbl. jk. Um...it really depends I'd think. A trash can packed full of flatted boxes might as well be wooden boards or something close to cement. If I had a choice between packed cardboard boxes and a mix of fluffy trash that contained bricks and stuff...I'd go for the latter.
