News, but not the serious kind
Jumping the Arc in the dark…
Hey, Blog Guy! We’re five days into 2009 and you haven’t mentioned any signs of the coming Apocalypse. Does that mean we’re safe?
No, it just means I’m backed up. Here’s a clip of Motorcross rider Robbie Maddison ringing in the New Year with a spectacular jump in Las Vegas.
He catapulted off a ramp to the top of a 100-foot replica of the Arc de Triomph, and then he jumped off the replica, plunging 85 feet in a free-fall before landing on a ramp.
If you’re like I am about heights, this video will make you barf on your keyboard.
Ah, and you think the fact that somebody would do that jump is a genuine sign of the Apocalypse?
Are you crazy? No! I think just BUILDING a 100-foot replica of the Arc de Triomph in Las Vegas is a clear enough sign!
