The flicks are always a good reminder why you don't want to go to war with Russia. Their weapons might be outdated, their defense spending might be lower than the US, but fighting with people that don't value life is not a good idea.

How is it we don't have videos of these fools turning to puddles of goo under tall structures?

Does darwin not travel outside of the U.S.?

It's mostly an optical illusion. It looks like they're 800 feet up but really it's only about 600 feet.

You'd have to go to Liveleak. Youtube would not publish it.

Russia is the only place that the paramedics carry a big spatula with them.

I really don't see what these guys get out of doing these stunts. They must be adrenaline junkies. Just climbing a rock wall is just a gateway, these guys got to push it farther to get their fix.

They're filming it, so they can show how tough they are.

Of all the similar vids I've seen, this is the only one that has actually made me feel that "anal pucker".

Even knowing no one falls I couldn't watch the whole video.

Seriously, does anyone know how many have died doing this shiat?

I guess when your future is so bleak, you either do shiat like this or Krokodil for fun.

There's a least one:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNa5dcLccS4

The infamous "BASE jump/parachute malfunction" video, complete with Wile E. Coyote snow puff at impact.  The guy somehow managed to live.

I wouldn't do either, but this seems more unbelievable.

Holy shiat. I had trouble watching the whole thing, and kept feeling waves of vertigo. Those guys are absolutely farking nuts.

Wolf892: I wonder if a good pick up line in Russia with the ladies is "I love you so much I'd never risk dying in an incredibly stupid way because I never want to leave your side."

Probably not though, for ever dumb guy doing an even dumber stunt there's always a lady in the background he's trying to impress.


It would backfire because the lady would think the guy was weak.

She'd rather marry a badass corpse than someone "alive" who thinks self-preservation is "kind of important". I can picture her dragging the crushed, lifeless sack of meat and bones that was her mate up to the altar, saying "I do" and then dry-humping it in front of everyone.

If Russian dashcam videos of things like giant exploding meteorites are any indication, the only reaction from the audience would be muted coughing in the back.
