If I had a hang glider I would definetely hang, and glide.  Those things look mad fun, Only problem is there isn't that many things to jump off in Maine.... or is there?  I don't think so.  You would porbably have to go to Mt. Katahdin or something, and still it may not be enough.  I actually think that would work, you'll just need a cliff.  How high do you need it to be to hang glide?  I sure as hell don't know, but I would like to know.  And how much do hang gliders cost?  I bet they cost a pretty penny, so here's my plan, I'll just make one.  First I'd have to get a bunch of piping to make a frame, so I'll just steal some from the local baseball field.  Just take a part the fence, maybe the dugout too, if needed.  For the kite material or whatever that crap is I'll just go to TJ Maxx and buy out all their windpants and restitch them into the proper shape.  After all that I 'll just hook the material to the piping via zip ties and I'll be done.  Not quite though, I'll need a test pilot, I'm thinking some kind of shark.  If a shark can survive the ride then I definetely can survive.  Those dudes need water and they'll be scared shitless in a hang glider.  So after all that I think it'll be ready for me.
