1. Overview

This memo contains a snapshot of the state of jumping off the bridge protocols used in the Internet, as determined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). It is a 21 January 2011 snapshot of the current official protocol standards list and the Best Current Practice list, which is updated daily and is available from the RFC Editor Web site.

2. Jump

All vendors must now jump off a bridge. The bridge height must be a least 746 ft, a vendor MUST NOT use any type of equipment to prevent certain death. Whilst in the motion of certain death I suggest the following phrase “Arrrrrgggghhh I wish I hadn’t followed this stupid specif…SPLAT.”

3. Die *

You are now dead and have successfully followed the specification.

* This specification is a joke, I am not actually responsible for any Opera developers actually following this specification.

    ITYM “off” in section two.

    Also ITYM “a vendor MUST NOT use any type of equipment to prevent certain death”, “should” is incorrect, please see RFC 2119.

    Thanks the spec has now been corrected hopefully it will be approved and implemented.

    No “Security Considerations” section – really?

    Also to nitpick section 2 – “I suggest” should be replaced with SHOULD or MAY as appropriate – reflecting the requirement level.

    LOL these mistakes where intentional to show how a specification can be flawed. =) honestly. hehe

    I think it may be true one way or the other. I’m just not convinced it is.
