Were any of them named John Morgan or used the sobriquet "Horse"?

I've been following The Sinner Team for a few years now, and they've been slowly working up to this (and more).  Stanislav and his team are pushing the limits of the human body in ways nobody thought was possible, and they do it following a strict set of safety guidelines.

The actual pull on the skin during one of their jumps isn't that large as they tend to jump with the rope/cord already extended.  On top of that they wear safety harnesses in case of gear failure or skin tearing.

While the bungee jump is pretty insane, earlier this year they managed to pull off a basejump suspension with the hooks attached to a parachute.

I'm honestly surprised this made it live on Fark.  Although I expect the comments to quickly fill up with things like "crazy russians", "I blame vodak", and "what is wrong with them?"  Suspension isn't for everyone, hell even though I'm a big supporter of the community, there's no way I would ever suspend.  Especially when jumping from a tower/bridge/cliff.  Just keep in mind that these guys are the exception.  No other team on the planet is attempting anything like this, nor would they be capable of it without support/supervision of members of The Sinner Team.

As Unyon pointed out suspension isn't exactly something new.  It's been around for centuries in various forms all over the world, almost always as part of a spiritual rite of passage.

Surprisingly, it doesn't appear to be the same one.

So which is it: are these people pushing the limits of the human body in ways NOBODYthought was possible, or are they doing things that have been done for centuries?

If the latter, I submit that just because older cultures thought doing something ridiculous and painful was a religious/spiritual experience does not mean we need to continue doing it, nor respect that silly decision.

If you simply think it is kind of cool and like it for that reason, then just admit your weird tastes and don't flail around throwing any shiat you can get to stick on the wall in a failed attempt to objectively justify doing it.

It is stupid, and some people like doing stupid things, sometimes painful, and that's ok.  The rest of us make fun of them.  I ate a ghost pepper over the summer - it was, objectively, a stupid thing to do. I would never be such a pretentious twat to pretend that I, or other people doing similar stuff, should be on some pedestal of limit-pushing super human spiritual awesomeness.  That is silly.

The global suspension community is pretty diverse, and for the most part it stems from the ancient rituals.  However The Sinner Team, are pushing things beyond what we thought was possible.  They still host non-freefall suspension related events for people who wish to suspend normally, but they're the only team in the world that is capable of performing these feats.

You have comprehension issues.

Doing stupid and painful things is merely doing something nobody else is crazy/stupid enough to do.

Are you stupid or deliberately conflating two things and jumping back and forth to move goalposts?

You said that a group was doing things nobody thought possible. I said they, that specific group, is doing things nobody else cared to do.

Aside from your dishonest interpretation of that specific statement, you are ignoring anything else I typed in my second comment.

I really don't care how slightly less rare a stupid activity that goofy morons consider spiritual is. That doesn't make it any less stupid. That goes for everything from pole sitting, the whirling dervishes, speaking in tongues, running around half dead from dehydration and starvation to see visions in the desert, etc.

Hanging around with hooks in your skin isn't magical, ultra-creative, god-communing, or anything else.

Feel free to post more links to any other examples of whackos doing crazy shiat you want. Numbers do not add legitmacy.
