i jump, you jump

we have many strange wishes, but one of the longest lasting and most stubbornly unsuccessful one is to have an epically awesome jumping photo. the kind that you post as your profile photo so that your friends can make comments about how wonderful and marvelous you look (in more hip terms, of course). for example, something like this:

unfortunately, after many attempts where we didn't even manage to get our feet off the floor, here is what we ended up with.
