Is it possible to construct a umbrella that would gently ease you down to the ground if jumped from a tall building while holding it?

A huge umbrella maybe not too big though and maybe use some strings, wire, rubber bands, and whatever else to try and make the umbrella stable enough to hold you. While you jumped from the tall building and hold onto it. And would it actually float you down gently, hard, or roughly to your death? No umbrellas I used before growing up helped when I used to jump from the top of a truck. So I was thinking maybe creating one that would hold me and not flip inside out making me smack the ground pretty hard now... Lol

No. The wind, velocity, gravity,etc. Would rip it apart I would think.

Nah. I jumped off a trash can when I was little with an umbrella, it didn't really slow me down at all
Report as
I jumped off the top of a truck while holding onto an umbrella and only smacked the ground. And it was a good idea at the start, but no possible chance to make one that'll hold.

I landed on both feet. That's where I put the butter
Report as
Yeah because you jumped from a trash can.
Report as

And I'll have you know, I didn't get (much) butter on the trash can
Report as

Suspecting anything to happen any minute? I'm awaiting to hear of my uncle and his girlfriend breaking up again for like the thousand time and then making up again. "Break up then make up" is getting tiring seems like. *yawn*
Report as
Well, anythings possible lol.
And yeah, that gets pretty annoying... "This and this" is now single.
"This and this" is now in a relationship with ______....
I'm like "wait, isn't that the same person?
I see a few people do that on Facebook, I told him to make up his friggin mind
Report as
He has to take medication for a serious bipolar disorder and when he doesn't take it he'll scream and yell and try to get right in your face. And that causes him and her to argue plus she starts it with her mouth and later on they're fighting and then check this! They go to the bedroom do their thing and tell each other "oh I love you so much baby" I'm like WTF? You two damn idiots need to grow the f*** up and stop dragging all us in your relationship problems! Grrrr
Report as
Lol
Sounds like they've made up their minds then
Report as
Seems like it, but just saying I wouldn't be wanting sex to make up for the arguments and fighting instead I'd want to put some space between us and then talking. Then maybe making fireworks in the bedroom. Lmao
Report as
Or fireworks outback, whatever, lol
