Kick-start your Monday morning with some beautifully insane Norwegian base-jumping! But oh, let’s ratchet it up a bit by adding wingsuits and buzzing cliffsides! Awesome does not begin to describe the antics of these gentlemen, so sit back and get ready for some adrenaline by proxy:

Of course, I’m posting this as I’m sitting in a comfy office chair, sipping coffee, and running a risk no greater than Carpal Tunnel.

Great. I’ve made myself sad.

    I saw this on the History channel ( I think that was the channel), which broke down the technology used in the two Batman films. Pretty awesome stuff. Might have to try something like this as a way of relieving stress once I’m done with my Master’s in Mathematics.

    By the way, this clip goes great with the song Reckoner off of Radiohead’s In Rainbows album. Or maybe it’s the fact that I’ve had about 6 cups of coffee this morning…

    Personally I used ‘Xanadu’ as my score. Disco awesome!

    ok, maybe it’s just me, but did anyone else find the fact that you never see anyone landing suspicious and a little unnerving?

    You know, I had that exact same thought the first time I watched it. I’m going to assume everyone lived, seeing as there was no slo-mo remembrance montage set to ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn’.
