P.S.
Before anyone asks, there's no "Work in Progress / 13", reasons for this should be fairly obvious

Is it bad that it's not obvious to me?   :-X

I'm sorry, but I don't get it?! (or maybe I'm just tired...) ;)

We jumped from a Work in Progress 12 to a 14, for the same reason there are no hotels with a 13th floor...

Ah ok I get it.  Although, someone wanting to commit suicide by jumping from the 14th floor may be a bit disappointed when he lands sooner than expected.  C'mon, you know what floor you're really jumping from....  :P

Funny you should say that. I saw a video years ago of two college kids bungee jumping off a building and they didn't account for the missing 13th floor, hence their cords were a floor too long. Both jump off the building in front of a crowd of fellow students and hit the ground face first killing both, probably instantly. They impacted so hard some of their teeth were found 10 feet away from their heads.

Well honestly, that's their own stupidity..  Regardless of how many floors a building claims to have, that doesn't affect its actual height.  If I'm about to bungee off a building, I think I'd base my bungee chord off of the height of the building.....
