9/17/14 11:40 AM EST: The AMA is live!
Tony Uragallo, the most interesting man in the world, is doing an AMA on reddit tomorrow, Wednesday Sep. 17 at noon EST!
What the hell is an AMA? reddit?
AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything” and is a popular feature on the website reddit. Anyone can make an account and post questions for Tony to answer. The most popular AMAs include President Obama, Bill Gates, a guy with two penises, Neil deGrasse Tyson and a guy who “was mauled by a bear, fought it off, and drove 4 miles down a mountain with [his] face hanging off.” Really.
How do I ask a question?
Go to reddit, click “want to join? login or register in seconds” in the top right corner to create an account. When Tony’s AMA starts, at noon tomorrow, click on the title of his thread (it doesn’t exist yet – we’ll post the direct link as soon as it’s up). Right under the description box will be an empty square that says, “Please remember, all top-level comments must contain a question.” Type your question in that box and hit Save. You can also comment on other question threads by clicking the green “Reply.”
Do I have to join reddit to view?
Nope! You can read everyone else’s questions and answers without an account. We’ll post highlights here later this week, too.
Who’s Tony Uragallo?
Oh no you di’int. Tony Uragallo owns TonySuits, the company that makes jumpsuits and wingsuits. He started out tinkering with parachutes and created the Jonathan elliptical canopy in the ’80s. When he gets tired of one thing, he moves along to the next. Most recently he moved on to wingsuit BASE competitions and has dominated. At age 60. Silver Grey Sports Club did a great interview and summary of the Tony-ness.
Minus the vertical-video syndrome and terrible audio and general horribleness of my skills (don’t worry, I will leave the videos to professionals from now on), this video from PIA 2013 gives you a few glimpses of the naughty schoolboy twinkle in his eyes and the Jack Sparrow-like charm. Also a peek of Tony’s beautiful wife Mary in the background :)
