    When you go skydiving, you’re almost certainly aware of a wide variety of risks that you’re braving in order to experience the sensation of pure free-fall.  For instance, your parachute could fail to deploy or a bad wind gust could send you helicoptering out of control.

    Sports narratives are dominated by the idea that anybody who puts the work in can beat anybody else.  It’s a crucial part of the thrill of competition, but it can also get a little dull, so sometimes it’s nice to see some big guy just clobber a little guy.

    Dude Performs Nighttime BASE Jump From NYC Freedom Tower (Video)

    On the list of extreme sports, BASE jumping would have to be towards the top, in between shark hunting and lion streetfighting. But a couple of BASE jumpers have added an element of stealth to their game, which ups the danger level considerably. The stealth comes from the fact that this particular BASE jump is […]
