My balls retreated into my abdomen reading that. I hate heights. Even reading about terrifying heights gives me that shiver in my spine.

Given Spider-Man's building-scaling acrobatics, they really should have called him Peter Parkour.

And this isn't his first brush with death.
The man suffered concussion after flipping off a wall and landing on his head, and another time he broke his leg performing a stunt.

Sergey, who works in surveying, said: 'I was scared, but fears keeps you from death. But with that, I feel great and ready to make the next flip.' Parkour is dangerous but life is dangerous.

So you know that you are, in fact, going to die someday and that there's absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. At any moment your tiny sliver of existence may become a slightly tinier sliver of existence, on a scale so much greater than yourself as to be utterly insignificant. One would think you would want to experience all that the world can offer with your short amount of time and that the rush of being alive and slapping death in the face would be a desirable pursuit.

Or you could just be scared of the inevitable and curl up on a sofa wasting your entire life worrying about it, I guess. But you could still die from a blood clot tomorrow, so I'm not really seeing what that path gets you. At least the guy in the video has an awesome story at the bar later, and if he dies someday from doing this at least he died from his own actions doing what he loved instead of some random event like popping a blood vessel on the toilet or slipping in the shower.

I do see your point. I still think he's nuts.

I was born to cower. Daringest thing I ever probably did was make the first roller coaster I ever rode the tallest in America at the time. Somehow managed not to shiat my pants; never got on a coaster again.

Project Mayhem sounds fun sometimes, though I accept my bland and sad life. That book isn't going to read itself.

I can't do a standing backflip (that I know of... strangely it has never come up) but I can't imagine trying to do it on a building ledge while wearing a base rig. At that point I'd rather just jump off the building.

Our entire solar system will eventually be consumed as the sun turns into a red giant. Good luck with the whole "being remembered" as a form of immortality thing.

Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".

One of the best, damn-near perfect poems ever written.

As for the nihilist/YOLO crowd, go for it, but consider you might not die in a moment of existential willing, but find yourself brain-damaged, paralyzed, "locked-in" unable to move or speak, just staring at the walls of the room where you are kept alive by machines. Enjoy the rest of that life, unless you are prudent enough to have made "living will" arrangements before falling off a building.

sweety, don't take offense.  Perhaps, you don't go SPLOOSH, but at the very least will find the guy interesting enough to approach him yourself if you see him in a bar.  Which, to most guys, makes him a stud, whether he lands on your ass that night or not.  That's more than the time or interest the rest of the other good guys, with steady jobs that have their nose on the grindstone for the next 40 years, that are doing laps about you on the bar will ever get.
