Two Guys Jumped Off the Burj Dubai and Lived to Tell About It

Oh, wow. Apparently, in May, a Brit and a Frenchman snuck on to the under-construction Burj Dubai and BASE jumped from it at 650 meters up. Now, there's video available of their infiltration, jump and subsequent escape. The footage from up top and the jump is just incredible stuff. I wish I had the cajones to do something like this. Although my favorite part of the video may be the footnote at the end; wait for it, it's worth it. [Current via Neatorama]



I have seen bridge jumpers a the New River Gorge in WV and as far as I can tell, they are ALL crazy. I am afraid to drive over the bridge, let alone jump off.
