He seems more confident now.

ThatDarkFellow: Jesus isn't going to disable gravity for you, champ


That's the interesting thing about these servile f*ckwits.  If he makes it, it was all Jeebus that did it.  If he falls, and Jeebus doesn't disable gravity or otherwise save him, it's in no way Jeebus' fault.

halfway to buttseckz!!!
 
2013-06-23 09:50:21 PM  
Sorry to be a spoiler, but he's going to make it.  Really, if he thought he had more than a 1% chance of dying, he'd never attempt it...
 
2013-06-23 09:50:43 PM  
Crotch cam is pretty interesting.

"Oh Lord Jesus"

Dude.. this is all you.. your mythical sky wizard and his hippy kid have nothing to do with this.
 
2013-06-23 09:50:52 PM  
You know, I'm laughing at all the things I'm seeing saying "OMG so scary" and "I'm on the edge of my seat" stuff like that. If he makes it, great. But if he dies, he dies. Ultimately, this is watching a guy take a walk. Big whoop.

THIS!
He is driving me crazy I'm like dude stop interrupting my Jesus cadence..

CALM IT DOWN JESUS

proteon: Son, do you think you could change your cadence a little bit?

No, that's an important one. If he keeps a regular cadence, the wire gets more bouncy.  He's got his uncle on one end feeling the vibration in the wire, giving feedback to his dad, who is in charge of telling him when to speed up/slow down/shiat himself.

I'm going to puke.
 
2013-06-23 09:52:10 PM  
sitting down again

25-30 mins straight of hard work like this is not easy.
 
2013-06-23 09:52:18 PM  
I wish they'd cut his mic and play "Highway to Hell" or something.
 
2013-06-23 09:52:18 PM  
I heard Jesus just left Chicago.
 
2013-06-23 09:52:19 PM  
If Jesus could effect the wind, do you think the Bible belt would have so many tornadoes?

That bloke crossing the grand canyon must be starving. I mean, I love cheeses too but I don't go on about them ALL the farking time.

Most people don't take a walk in 40 mph winds 1,500 feet above certain death.
Unless, of course, you live in certain parts of New Jersey.

who doesn't sit down when they're walking across a wire avove the Grand Canyon area close to the Grand Canyon

That is insane. O.O

b0rg9: Arachnophobe: He sounds like he's getting pounded by Jesus. "Oh you're my king. Oh yes Jesus. Yes Jesus. You're so good. I love you Jesus. Yes Jesus. That's my king."

I'm the athiest of Athieists, and I will give a good solid pass to this guy praising any farking thing he wants on that rope.


Someone else said that's his mantra, how he keeps himself focused. If that's the case, then more power to him.

I think that anyone repeating the same thing over & over for 10 minutes is going to be annoying, regardless of what they're saying


You'd be wrong. ;-)

Fark is making me laugh, but I just walked by the tv to get my drink and had a moment of - "Oh, shoot! I hope I don't distract him by walking by!"

I don't know why I have this on. I hate it on multiple levels.
 
2013-06-23 09:53:27 PM  
If Jesus really had authority over the wind, wouldn't He use it for something more productive, like preventing tornadoes?
 
2013-06-23 09:53:49 PM  
when did he sit?
 
2013-06-23 09:53:50 PM  

ecmoRandomNumbers: I wish they'd cut his mic and play "Highway to Hell" or something.


I thought you meant Highway to Heaven with Michael Landon lol
 
2013-06-23 09:53:51 PM  
Still watching but had to mute. I didn't want this guy to die, I mean he has 3 kids, but seriously, as soon as he starts walking it's jesus this, praise god that. also, why does god un-capitalized show up as correct but jesus un-capitalized show up as a spelling error?
 
2013-06-23 09:53:58 PM  
That's my savior.  That's Jesus.
 
2013-06-23 09:54:10 PM  
I wonder why he never has a small crisis of faith over " tell you to calm in the name of Jesus" not working.

"Thank you for calming that cable, Lord" - like his siting down, per instructions, had nothing to do with it.

Damn, this is annoying.

Psycat: Sorry to be a spoiler, but he's going to make it.  Really, if he thought he had more than a 1% chance of dying, he'd never attempt it...


Yeah, we know.  But we're hoping for that 1% and admiring the skill it takes to do this.  "Oh my Jesus"es notwithstanding.
 
2013-06-23 09:54:37 PM  
I wonder if this is going to get autotuned..
 
2013-06-23 09:54:39 PM  
Should we praise Jeebus for helping him walk across the canyon, or should we curse Jeebus for making him stupid enough to attempt it in the first place?
 
2013-06-23 09:55:22 PM  
The wind has gone from 22 miles an hour to 37 mph on the live webcam page.

He's wearing a parachute I call bs..

16 mins on the wire whilst holding a 30 ft long 34 lb pole.

Jesus is always a proper noun, god isn't.

In Jesus' name, stop this wire from vibrating.


Dear God, Please break all the laws of the universe for my convenience.

Even if you hate the Jesus talk, this is farking impressive
 
2013-06-23 09:57:03 PM  
Anybody who's playing the suggested drinking game is collapsed in a fetal position on the floor, laying in a pool of their own puke, and quietly murmuring to themselves about Jebus, at this point.
