Damn, that makes me dizzy just watching it. I literally gripped the handles on my chair when he raised the camera.

Unfortunately, I am figuring even a GoPro might not survive a fall to concrete from that height.... so, if it happens, you might only hear about it. And, cell phones.. forget about it... they can't even fall off a dining room table onto carpet anymore.

/no, I am not a GoPro expert... please, do tell us all how you're a GoPro expert and it will survive a direct nuclear strike or your momma's ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓  can ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓  and ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ ▓ !!!!

So... have any of these young hooligans plunge to their death while doing this?

Refer to TheMega's post above.

My take: the people who are paid to change the blinking red lights on antennas, towers, are required to use safety harnesses.   But hey, I'm almost 50, not 14.  I no longer think that I'm invulnerable, though teen/20s thinking is probably closer to I am not vulnernable.  Subtle difference, sure.  Actually, they're not really thinking at all.

They usually do it in pairs so the one who doesn't fall could get the one who does on video.

A lot of those videos come from Russia, where its not so much the 'I'm young and invincible' mentality, as it is the 'I live in a nihilistic wasteland, all is void and I have no reason to have any hope or dreams for the future, so what do I care if I plummet to my untimely death'

The camera might not, but I bet the memory card would be intact, at least enough for a real pro to get the data off with specialized equipment.

As long as they didn't litter the peels I don't see the problem.

I saw one of these videos the other day where a guy did a back flip on a narrow strip of steel from very high up.  I think he was Russian.  Anyway, he slipped hitting the landing but he somehow managed to hang on.

After he saved himself from certain death he just looked up at the camera guy with the biggest shiat eating grin on his face that I've ever seen.

These people are crazy, but at least they're not serial killers.
