I hate heights. In a department store that I usually shop in I'm positive there is some sort of magnetic field dragging towards edges of spiral staircase 3 stories up.

Anyway in this vid I just think the guy is somewhat taking his buzz to far. Why would anyone want to do that knowing its a death sentence if it goes wrong.

Confidence. They're too busy living to think of death. You can see how calm dude is when he's taking the selfie and talking like he was sitting on a river bank.

A close comparison is driving in 65 mile an hour traffic. Do you grip the wheel in fear, worrying about death every moment?

I almost didn't watch it and was prepared to stop if it went to far for me, because I get vertigo so easily. My stomach sure did some flip-flops.

Daredevils to be sure!
I am so grateful for people like this though or I would never see that view.
I too have a fear of heights of varying degrees and only in certain circumstances.

Sort of like people who jump OUT of a perfectly good airplane!

Check this out...

Yes. That is the World Trade Center.




I first seen this documentary a few years ago.

The 'OG' pictured in the poster above, is Philippe Petit
and tight-roped across the Twin Towers in 1974...

Considering everything that happened on September 11th, and the symbolic nature of what the WTC buildings represent today, It's awe inspiring to say the least.

I can't even fathom walking between those two buildings like that...
seriously... there aren't many words I can use to describe it... it's incredible.



Beautiful. Gives me chills, man...

No way! The slightest wrong move and you're dead.

Why did I watch that? It made me a bit woozy, too. Anywho, there's a fine line between bravery and stupidity. I think this is an example of the latter.

I too live 'la vida loca'

i once ran with scissors in my hands and had a slight headache at the time too.

came out unscathed. im too busy living life in the moment to be scared of death.

Man, I got adrenalin just watching this from my comfy chair haha. On a side/sad note, they guy that did the back flip is named Pavel Kashin, and apparently he died recently doing some daredevil stunt.

This vid wasn't too bad.
Looked pretty cool up there. Wish I could go there too.
The guy walking the tightrope - that was awesome though.

Hey, if you got the skills to defy what some may call certain death, then why not enjoy it? If you got the skills to overcome, then it isn't certain death.
I guarantee someone who doesn't know how to tight rope walk, or do a gymnastic flip isn't going to be doing what they did.

NO!!!!
That made me remember those old "faces of death" videos...
I know I have dated myself but, gosh those WERE so disturbing...

I'm sure a "google" search could provide a plethora!
EWWWW!

Well, you see, there is that Johnathon Livingstone Seagull thing of a few decades ago where defying death is life itself for some people (and obviously fictional seagulls). --In Johnathon's adventure, however, it didn't turn out too well. Sorta like the old flying too close to the sun classical story. Unrequited hyper activity has a lot to do with it. Its in the genes, the x chromosomes some say.

I'm not particularly afraid of heights, but every time I was on a high place, it was for work. I don't think I could do what these guys do just for fun.

Wow what a view.
You could see how fast that wind was moving through his hair while he stood atop of the tower. One slip in balance and that gent would have been painted across the road.... Nothing but a red stain and splat mark.
