The good, bad and weird things we're enjoying

Alternative Ironmen

Watch video of some excellent bike jump action from Alpine, Utah.

 

These fine folks decided riding bikes down a hill and flinging themselves 35 feet into the air off a dirt ramp into a pond had no downside. And they were correct. It's excellent.

 

Amazingly, only one injury reported (requiring six stitches) in a session that, frankly, should have caused a little more damage.

 

Next up in the world of dangerous things people generally shouldn't do on a Tuesday, we have a stunt jump, presumably for a movie.

 

A combination of jumping through a window...

 

of a skyscraper...

 

while on fire...

 

without a parachute...

 

leads me to believe this guy is very talented at avoiding death. And that he saves plenty of money on health insurance because I doubt he could find a policy covering this sort of behavior.
