23 Mile high skydive

Someone is attempting to skydive 23 miles above the surface of the earth. Thoughts?
Personally, I think it'd be fun as hell, but I'd forget to open the parachute and hit the ground

Not going to happen. By the time he deploys the parachute he will be falling as fast as any other skydiver would. Terminal velocity and such.

Edit: Assuming he deploys the parachute at the same distance from the ground as a normal skydiver would.

This is when he jumped at 18 miles. 5 miles higher than this is just ridiculousness.

Its possible for sure just extremely dangerous, they have been doing this for a very long time Joseph Kittinger was the first and currently holds the record at 19 miles.

Problem with going higher is re-entry into the atmosphere, your suit would have to be made of some pretty strong material because you are going to hit around 200 degrees Celsius or so just because of the air friction and orbital velocity. Also coming back into the thick atmosphere from the stratosphere you run back into gravity which could actually slow you down enough to inflict negative G's which will cause all the blood to rush to your head, first causing your vision to go red, then possibly bursting blood vessels before you finally black out. Then of course you need one hell of a parachute because you will be at terminal velocity when you pull it, a normal chute would probably rip right off your body possibly taking arms or legs with it.
