Were people shocked that activity might be dangerous?
 
2012-10-16 08:31:12 AM  
Wheeeeee!

I bet he needed new shorts after that.

Well you won't catch me doing that.

I'm convinced.

Yes, let this be a lesson to us all.

Yeah, a high bar is dangerous when it collapses in the gym, with padding all around it. That's simply idiotic.
 
2012-10-16 11:29:02 AM  
Damn. That happens and he still comes out on-heading. Nice.

You know, when it happened to the first guy, that was bad enough, but then two more guys try the same thing with the same results - that's just crazy.

It looks like he did the same thing three times in a row. You would think they would have shored up that contraption after a failure or two.
 
2012-10-16 11:57:32 AM  
He's no Felix. That's for sure.

Base jumpers aren't known for their rope skills and rigging abilities. They usually leave that kind stuff up to slackliners and rock climbers.

Would have been much more entertaining if they shot him out of a trebuche or a giant slingshot. Even a cannon.

That would be awesome. I want to BASE jump next to the Perrine Bridge by being chucked from a trebuchet. I bet with a tailwind I could get further than Kneivel did.

I don't think his outfit is officially allowed by the IOC. He's disqualified.

I was going to do that tomorrow. Fark it now.

I thought the most startling thing about the vid was the UFO that quickly appears and then vanishes (cloaking device I presume), right at the start of the vid.

They should tie a rope swing from the moon and then jump off the cliff and swing all the way over to the Pacific ocean, and then totally do a quadruple-backflip into a back swan dive and splash down onto a shark and just f*ckin' ride that shark into the sun. That would be so awesome!

If he really enjoys doing it and dies in the process, how can you fault the man for the way he lived his life? You gonna call somebody stupid for living a life of fun and dying happy just because they're less afraid than you to take risks?

I'm not jumping off of, or out of, anything unless it's going down and certain to crash. Better yet, I'm not getting above a second story for any reason. Fark I hate heights.
 
2012-10-16 04:21:40 PM  
My policy - never jump off a perfectly serviceable cliff.

// Also never swing on anything that is not in a sand-pit.
 
2012-10-16 04:25:24 PM  
The people responsible for building the metal bar have been sacked.

It seemed a lot of the diff version of this that I wanted to submit had repeats. And some of them were only slow motion repeats, which didn't even show the normal speed. Are people not capable of watching the video a 2nd time if they so desire?

I've done that, and i can tell u it is!

Also, Chuck Darwin was at bat here with three balls and 2 strikes, and the might Darwin struck out.

Clearly a street light. Duh.
 
2012-10-17 08:46:29 AM  
This should happen more often to these idiots.
 
2012-10-17 10:05:10 AM  
That would have been a bad death. Daredevil dies while doing something meaningless on the edge of a cliff--I'm sure most basejumpers know how they want to go. This is not one of them.

Idiot.

Like a Boss!

I guess jumping off a cliff doesn't do it anymore with these guys. Now they have to resort to antics to get their rocks off.
