I've watched dozens of these videos and still need about 30 seconds to wrap my head around the reality of what I'm seeing. I continually watch these in near disbelief. That is a level of daring (insanity?) that I cannot imagine. What are they seeking? The rush? Fame? Maybe even a memorable, powerful death?

That said, those wild boys on the tops of rusted beams shooting into the clouds across the barren wastelands of Russia certainly deserve more internet fame than thots propping one ass check up on their bathroom sink.

Absolutely. And hilariously stated...still laughing at your wording.

This guy never made it:





Quote:Wu Yongning’s stunts were not for the faint of heart. The 26-year-old daredevil, sometimes referred to as “Chinese Superman,” had amassed a considerable following online for his adventures in “rooftopping,” or scaling tall buildings without protective gear or safety harnesses.

On Weibo, a Chinese social media platform similar to Twitter, Wu posted videos of himself in the unlikeliest of places: Lying down atop a skyscraper or tiptoeing (barefoot, even) on the edge of some bridge scaffolding. Often, he had a selfie stick in hand to capture his heart-stopping escapades.

Despite the risks, Wu always survived his stunts. However, his lucky streak came to an end on Nov. 8 as he attempted to do pullups off the top of a 62-story skyscraper in Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, Chinese media outlets reported.

Video circulating of his final, ill-fated stunt shows Wu at the top of the building, appearing calm as he uses a piece of fabric to wipe down a ledge. He then swings both legs off the building and practices hanging off the edge with his elbows still bent. After about five seconds, he climbs back up and readies for another try.

On Wu’s second attempt, he fully extends his hang and does three full pullups before trying to climb back atop the roof. This time, he visibly struggles to regain his footing on the side of the building.

After struggling for about 15 seconds after his last pullup, Wu loses his grip and falls from the side of the skyscraper.


Though the fatal fall took place last month, his death was not confirmed until last week, when Wu’s girlfriend posted about it on social media, according to Sina.com. The Chinese news site reported that Wu had trained in martial arts and previously worked as an extra in the film industry but turned to recording his climbing stunts full time because it was more lucrative.

According to the South China Morning Post, Wu was trying to win a $15,000 prize in a rooftopping challenge – allegedly to pay for an upcoming wedding and to cover medical costs for his mother – when he fell to his death.

“Rooftopping” has gained popularity in recent years among a small but devoted subset of adventure-seekers and photographers. For some, it’s an extension of urban exploration or a way to push the boundaries of photography. Others say the hobby can be thrilling and extremely profitable, according to the Guardian, which explored the phenomenon earlier this year in a piece about obtaining the “ultimate selfie.”

Sometimes, it’s a combination of all of the above.

But, needless to say, law enforcement agencies frown upon the practice, and several “rooftoppers” have been arrested in recent years, often charged with trespassing or public-order crimes.

“I believe that eventually somebody is going to make a mistake, and it will be a critical one,” Toronto police spokesman David Hopkinson told the CBC News last year, in a push to stop the city’s rooftopping enthusiasts.

In October, a 44-year-old man died after falling from the top of a Chicago hotel. Neil Ta, a former Toronto-based “rooftopping photographer,” said he was quitting the practice in a 2014 blog post titled “5 Reasons Why I’m F***ing Done With Rooftopping.” In part, he blamed the onslaught of “a newer breed of rooftopper.”

“Something fundamentally changed when it became less about just going up and having a good time with friends and more about who can take the photo of the other person in the most precarious situation,” Ta wrote. “Danger sells. There was a market for our images and whoever had the most ‘vertigo-inducing’ photo reigned supreme. It felt too fake, too contrived.”

In "Last Train to Zona Verde" travel writer Paul Theroux, who has been zigzagging all over the world since he was in his twenties, takes a final trip to Africa at age 70.

This is his take on dying while doing what you love:

Quote:"Often, in an overcrowded bus in Africa, I thought of nothing but death,” he admits, “and hating the trip I let out a ghastly laugh when I thought of anyone saying over my battered corpse, ‘He died doing what he loved.’"

It's too little too late. Always is. Even if everyone woke up to this reality today, the damage has been done.

She's in a better place now. Or at least a better place than she would have been in with her "journalism" degree from Fordham and probably tons of student loan debt ($72K/year...$280K if she managed to do it in four years).

Dopamine's a hell of a drug. A while back a guy duplicated Evel Knievel's Caesar's palace jump and made it look easy. Around the same time I watched docs on Knievel and the daredevil mindset. It's thrilling to watch but you have to be messed up in the head to do it. Same thing with Johnny Knoxville/Jackass.

Yep.

Young men do stupid things to prove their courage. Young women like this do stupid things to puff up their infinite vanity. They not only destroy their own selves, but the children and families that they might have given to the world.

The sooner that women are brought back under control the better.

Do we really need Thots like this seeding the world with their stupidity?

At least those guys knew the risks.

There will always be a few daredevils out on the margin.

These girls think their ways are blessed.

She was probably expecting to land on a bouncy castle the whole way down.

It was Travis Pastrana. He did three of Knievel's biggest jumps in just a few hours for a TV special and made it look so easy.

Its a shame, but she was just too fucking stupid to survive. Happens all the time in the animal kingdom when you think about it. Dumb raccoons, stupid birds, crazy squirrels, porcupricks that get hit by cars. It helps over control the population of things that are fucking stupid. Survival of the fitness.
