I think it is not possible, my friend seems to think if you press hard enough on the atmosphere it will become dense enough to jump on.

With a person's feet? That's absurd.

Do a rough sum and show it to him . You have air density and area of bottom of an average foot . How fast would the foot have to be travelling through the air to get any useful lift force ?

We do not debunk nonsense here at the PF. Thread is closed.
