For this one, you must save yourself from government experimentation by teaching other people your gift.
HOP (any gender, mid-teens through late life)
Aaaaaand hop: Now pump- p-
Okay, good try though. Don't get discouraged. It seems impossible, at first. But trust me... let's try it again. Round two:
Aaaaaand HOP! Pump! pump!
HOP And pump-
Okay, stop a sec. Lemme see if I can-- guys, can everybody stop a sec? Stop hopping. I know it's frustrating. You see me do it and it looks so easy. And, I mean it IS easy. For me. My body just kind of understands. So we just need your bodies to understand. Lemme help you visualize, okay?
Flying... it's not like superman where you just lift off. It's a process. It feels like climbing. At least the beginning part. It's like... it's like hopping on a stair master. The steps are pressurized. That's what pumping the air under your feet should feel like. So don't think "HOP! WOOSH!" Think "HOP! PSHHHNK- PSHHNK- PSHHNK!"
Now what's going to happen is that each pump, each PSHHHNK... it's going to take you exponentially higher...
becomes four feet
becomes eight feet
becomes sixteen feet
And then you're in a position where you can start to push sideways and glide and... but, don't think about that. Let's start with some pumps. Think PSHHHNK! Okay.
Aaaaand HOP- PSHHNK!
HOP- PSHNK, PSH...
Okay just get some air, under those feet, I think you need more air. Really HOP.
Guys I know you can do this!
I'm not the only one. I KNOW I'm not the only one. You just gotta believe in yourselves. Don't focus on ME. I'm not a miracle. I'm not special. That's what the government thinks... we've got two days to prove to them that this is just normal. I'm not the only one who can fly, I'm just the first. Now do this for yourselves. You can FLY.
And if you don't believe in yourself, then do it to save my ass. Keep me from being a government guinea pig. I'm normal. And you'll be normal. Think "normal"
HOP- NORMAL! NORMAL! NORMAL!
