It is a good question, but I dont think anyone can answer what they would do when they are standing in the situation :).

You can plan everything down to the last detail, but when shit is going down and panic strikes most plans are forgotten and survivial instincts step in and you just react.


Agreed! You can say whatever you want, but at the last minute things don't go according to plan.
It sucks, but it's true.

BRILLIANT!!! Only problem I see there is its 9 STORIES HIGH!!!! you are going to get major air regardless of how you land. Unless you have mad skills and a lot of luck I really doubt your going to be able to hold that position. You will probably end up hitting your head regardless.

Actually the impact would kill you no matter where you land. Think about it. If you are over 100 lbs and your that high up, the laws of physics state that when free falling that your speed will continue to increase until the speed matches your body weight basically. (If you dont believe me I can send you the formula its in my notes from my physics classes) That means from that height you might end up hitting the ground at almost 100 miles/hr and I am sure you have seen what happens to STEEL cars going that fast and hitting something right? Well.....ya.....your going splat regardless how you land.....sorry to break it to you but just being realistic here.


My advice is if your going to jump, then take off your clothes and use them to make a sort of parachute or something to decrease how fast you are going on impact and you might live with broken bones. Or not. I am still going for the ladder.

Jump. Obviously the impact would kill you. I'd rather die from impact than a slow painful death. I hate getting burns, who doesn't?

When the time comes it may not be your choice no matter what you choose how to do it here. I can plan what I'm going to do by the second and how many steps it takes to do it, but dying by burning, suffocation, panic sets in and no matter your plans you may just jump anyway. Hoping for the best doesn't cross your mind when you jump.

Always window, if there was a 96% chance of death I'd go out head first to ensure that my death would be quick. Burning would be slow and painful. I'd try and look for anything to grab to slow down my fall such as telephone wires etc...if not....byebye plunge.
