Hey Daredevil, check this footage you took. Whoops, you're blind, sorry.

That Grecian pic looks like it's on top of the Catholic cathedral on Santorini in Greece. If it is, that island in the background is so jagged with volcanic rock that is uninhabitable.

Also, that ship in front of the cruise ship looks like a private yacht.

How do you even get on top of those buildings?

One of the dumbest stunts I've ever seen.  You could stand on the ledge of the building with the camera held high in your hands, and get a steadier shot.  But sure, I get it - that's not the point.  The real point is to do something so needlessly and foolishly dangerous that people will be hooked by your attention whoring, which will fill some empty hole of insecurity in your life.  Honestly, there's not much difference between numbing your pain by doing something like this, and numbing it with heroin...except that you'd likely live a little longer if you were a junkie instead of an "extreme stunts" dummy.  I hope your parents throw you a nice funeral.

Yeah, stupid attention whores always seeking out new thrills. Fark all the skydivers and base jumpers and motorcycle stunt performers and tightrope walkers and test fighter pilots and space-to-earth jumpers and parasailers and cliff jumpers and free divers and human flies and snowboarders and no-ropes rock climbers and drag racers and speed record setters. They should all sit in on the couch trying to set cheetos eating records like you.

These guys are no healthier or respectable than the veritable couch potato.  If they were healthy (I'm talking mentally here), they'd be outdoors doing active things that don't especially risk their lives (yes, like me).  And what's to respect?  That they lack appreciation for life?  That they lack common sense and a healthy sense of fear?

Ever notice how you never see one of these guys, where he's like 50 or 60 years old?  I wonder why that is...

Because not everyone is of the "have to make sure my inevitable corpse is as winkled and feeble looking as possible" disposition? Some people try to enjoy their lives with different activities than you like, including risking their lives. What's the point of depriving yourself of the thrills just so you can tack a few more years of shiatting your diaper to the end of your life?

False dilemma, anyone?  I guess you like extreme argumentation as much as you like extreme sports.  This guy in the article is 25 years old.  If he keeps up this activity, he won't live to see 35.  How is that "tack(ing) on a  few more years of shiatting your diaper to the end of your life"?  And how is living a healthy and active lifestyle "wrinkled and feeble", while living a suicidal lifestyle is "enjoy(ing) their lives"?

A normal person pursues their interests, sure, and everyone has different risk tolerances.  No problem.  But doing handstands on the ledges of buildings seems ill-advised in any case.  He will fall, and his family won't be taking solace that "he died doing what he loved" or some bullshiat like that.  Risking your life doesn't just involve you - someone has to clean up the mess and bury the dead.

Threads like this always make my hands sweat and then I can't use my trackpad properly.

I could do that and the pictures would look exactly the same, except for the shiat stains on my shorts.

Your life is your own, if you want to spend it risking it that's your decision. If anyone else has a problem with that or feels that they have some say or stake in your life, they can suck it. Feeling alive by risking your life can be a lot more fun and fulfilling than playing it safe, and in the end, you're still a corpse no matter what you do. This guy's felt the adrenaline, gotten semi-famous, and stared death strait in the face and laughed. He's LIVED. What have you done that makes you life so worth protecting?

At least we've backed down from:

The real point is to do something so needlessly and foolishly dangerous that people will be hooked by your attention whoring, which will fill some empty hole of insecurity in your life.

to "it seems ill advised". You're only a couple steps away from a more reasonable "Your life, do what you want." Shame really, I was just about to try finding the "stop liking what I don't like" picture.

I haven't backed down from that at all, I think this guy and all like him (does that, by chance, include you?) are incredible idiots, so please resume your search and post the pic if it makes you feel better (even though it totally doesn't apply here - I have a pretty good reason for "not liking" this).  And hey, look at you:  liking what I don't like, and for no good reason!  Ironic?

Don't know about the rest but drag racing is relatively safe compared to commuting and certainly orders of magnitude safer than handstands on a building ledge.

I've noticed something:

Since watching that tower climb vid, a few Mustang Wanted vids and now some of these people who hang off on one hand ... I get less queasy each time and I think I'm my feelings of unease in high places is lessening.
