    I can't even imagine doing that. I can barely look out my window without getting dizzy.

    Id do it if i knew there wouldnt be any possible side effects from the sudden pressure changes.

    This would cause like a reverse case of the bends wouldn't it?

    Joe Kittinger wore a pressurised suit. On one of his jumps his right glove didnt seal and his hand swelled to double its natural size! In another jump there was a malfunction that sent him into a spin which created 22 Gs of force on his extremities. He still holds the record for that also. He blacked out and his automatic chute saved his life.
