This newly-created article was immediately tagged for deletion. As a "possible hoax".

Sorry to tell you Jimbo-Masturbator trolls something......jack jumping is a very real thing.
I've seen people do it on ski slopes. Mostly in New England.

In fact, there's at least one company making jack-jumper chairs. Video, video. Blog.

It is NOT A HOAX, morons. No.


Get out of your moms' basements and go out and see the world.
You might learn something.

Maybe they need to have a 3-month debate about whether it should be merged with monoski.

But he's still free of any clue.....a sick person needs a cure, not palliation of the symptoms.
Wikipedia is sick because it allows shit like this to happen, every day.

What about the hundreds of other articles that get deleted or tagged for deletion, every day?
