Did they really have to include 45 seconds of him getting ready?

Those little black distance markers are very useful - now I see that they're visible even during the jump. And it would be easier to record that my pants were, indeed, shat, before making it past the first one, if I ever was on that horrible hill of death.

Dammit, Jim, I'm a skier not a video editor!

Wouldn't tt'ing on the ramp make it even slicker once it froze?

pp'ing on the ramp might do that.

So Jurij Tepes is the guy's name. He's from Slovenia.  The jumping took place in Vikersund, Norway.

He was Mr Ninth Place?

Here is the winner, Gregor Schlierenzauer, who went 30+ meters further.

Pssh. I do this on my Wii Ftt all the time.

Big deal. Anyone can ski DOWN hill. Let's see him ski up it.

Why did they correct the headline?

What it's like? I'd say pants crappingly scary.

I think it's part of the buildup that adds to the magnitude of what's about to be done. Just looking at the sheer size and scope of it before he gets on has my a$$hole ready to pucker up and jump back into my body for safety. I think by the end of it it was hiding at the top of my skull.

/also the sheer sound of the wind from him flying makes me wonder what speed he was going. That was nuts.

I have done some crazy exciting things in my life... and I *STILL* would have left a liquified-turd racing stripe from the launch to the landing.

Back in my younger days I would have tried ski jumping...after gobs of training, of course, but I would have tried it.

And as I see fifty not too far away and feel two vertebrae rubbing together and aches and pains from farked up shoulders, knees, wrists and elbows I think "yeah, I'd be in worse shape if I ski jumped"

/I'd prolly feel better if I'd stop laying my bike down. Old man bikes like a Road Glide just don't handle the Dragon like a Sportster or a crotch rocket

Meh, these guys are good at it. Give me Eddie the Eagle every time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7MmJIy0bjo

You know what would have been cooler? To see the jump from the front without the jump cuts looking backwards. Just as you start to get a feel for what it might be like, you're looking at the guys ass.

/crazy loud too

Almost as exciting as going to the mailbox and finding only junk mail from CVS,

Ski up hill? That's how I roll, man!

/snowboard down

Not as scary as I expected.
The way the ground slowly comes up to meet you takes away any vertigo.
Although in 3D it might have looked more sphincter clenchy.

My first reaction to the view from the top of that thing was, "You aren't gonna.....oh you are? What are you, fackin' stupid or somethin'?"
