    I was expecting something else when I saw the thread title. icon_lol.gif

    But yeah, pretty crazy. I've seen other pics/videos of people just chilling on skyscrapers or bridges. Not sure I could do it. icon_confused.gif

    Is this for real? Are there wires or camera techniques involved I wonder? This is way too dangerous. One slip and poof! your life is gone. icon_eek.gif

    Nope, this is the real deal. Many members of the Parkour community have actually met the guy and he does this now. Check out his Youtube channel for GoPro footage of it! Scary stuff!

    OMG!
    It looks like a great video but I had to turn it off right away. I can't believe a little square like that could make me so dizzy.
    Which Zelda game is that where they have the castle up in the sky with the birds? That one made me really dizzy too. I mean, it's an animation and I couldn't handle it. icon_biggrin.gif

    No name for it besides a guy being a daredevil. Parkour is the art of movement: getting from Point A to Point B in the fastest way possible by simply using your body.

    Don't try it JumpMan - we'd really miss you if you slipped.

    Sometimes death-defying stunts are just thrilling. You get the big thrill and take your chances. 240 people have died climbing Mt. Everest - which seems almost a routine climb today. That's 6% of everyone who has ever tried to climb it. About 1 in 20. Better odds than Russian roulette, though.

    I went to look for it on youtube and it's actually TWILIGHT PRINCESS, the "City in the Sky" dungeon.
    I really loved that one. The birds were so weird and the background ambient music was very dreamlike.
    You can see the view that repeatedly make my head spin in the first five seconds. You eventually have to look at that a lot when you play the game.

    I never finished SKYWARD SWORD. The boss at the end was the only one in any game that really freaked me out.

    I didn't even have to start the video to have acrophobia. The thumbnail itself was enough to make my heart skip a beat.

    No thx sherrif.
