good for him

I won $3k on that bet.

10:43 p.m.: "Welcome to Canada. May I see your passport, please?" Nik pulls his out of a small pouch. They ask him what his purpose of his trip to Canada is and he says "to inspire people all over the world."

Meh. He had a safety harness which took all the drama out of it.

He kept talking about Jesus which was annoying, but it was funny when he used the term jackoff.
 
2012-06-15 11:03:50 PM
Could've done without all the Jesus, but good for him. I guess.

ABC made him wear the safety harness.

I had it in ctrl-v. I've posted it every time I see a Niagara Falls thread, obviously.

He should have had Evel Knievel's grandkid jump over him while Harry Houdini's great-grandchild dangles below trying to escape a straitjacket.

'Tis good to be a daredevil, no?

I'm conflicted. Part of me thinks he's a pussy for using a tether (although ABC made him do it) but then again had he not worn a tether and fallen to his death I probably would have called him a moron and chalked up another win for Darwin.

Damnit. Now this is stuck in my head:

Actually, he will need it for the return trip, thanks to the war on turrism.

Congrats on eluding death's claws,I guess....
 
2012-06-15 11:09:18 PM
A safety harness? Wth

I was not pleased with that development. I almost took a trip over to see it live, I'm glad it didn't fit my schedule.
 
2012-06-15 11:09:23 PM
So, you're saying, he went to a lot of trouble to get into Canada?
 
2012-06-15 11:09:27 PM
It was like NASCAR without an car wreck. ZZZZZZzzzzzz.......

Have you been on the Rainbow Bridge during the peak of tourist season?

This was a much faster way to get into Canada.

On the special after the NBA game last night, that was the thing he was most pissed off about and thought was going to mess him up. He hated having the harness.

I was kinda hoping for tragedy. When you do such public stunts, you have to expect that half the people are betting on Darwin.

Oh well.

Every time I go to Canada I either answer the "purpose" question with a fake purpose we agreed on before hand or tell the truth, which is too existential for border patrol ("Because it's next door", "to go shopping, not sure where", "to see if I can see my house from here") and TO INSPIRE THE WORLD is acceptable?

And since when do they stamp passports?

/"To get booze at Duty Free."

I'm not surprised. He mentions his dislike of the harness in the article too.

No, he originally said jackoff but caught himself and said jackass instead.

Oh praise Jesus lord you are my savior

Tight roping the twin towers was cooler. Yeah.

Next time I leave the country & they ask me the purpose of my trip, I'M going to say, "To inspire the world."

Yeah, i figured it was something like that. No way would they show it live if there was a chance of him going down the falls.

But still, I have to say it made it boring.
 
2012-06-15 11:18:12 PM
It's funny that people "could have done without" the Jesus comments.

They lasted for less than 30 seconds, with a jackass inbetween

/praise you Jesus
//thank you Lord
 
2012-06-15 11:19:29 PM
If you want a walk that didn't go so well, look up Karl Wallenda's last walk on YouTube.
 
2012-06-15 11:20:02 PM
Oh no Oh no! Sooooooooo Exciting!!1! If he slips he'll fall two feet!!! The horror!


/The children looked very bored.

It was a little longer than that but I let it go because if I did that, I would be thanking every diety I possibly could as well.

Plus I remember reading that the family is very religious.

True, but when your financial backer (ABC) says you have to wear a harness, you wear a harness.

Every time someone goes over Niagara Falls, whether they live or die, the first thing that pops into my head is "fark Yeah".
