Nope, I can't watch it.
I only got through 1:38.
When I was that age, I did a little rock climbing, with harnesses and someone holding me by rope if I fell.
If they planned so much, why not use safety measures?
We're human and can make mistakes, regardless of how much we practice.

I guess this might be a form of PUA that might actually work.

If you are driven by some strong internal force to do things, no courage is required. All that is required is the discipline to listen to the strong internal vice and tune out the weaker nay-saying voices. the more you listen, the easier it becomes to continue listening. I have no internal voice telling me to pull stunts like this group, of course.

BASE jumpers are the most reckless daredevils of all. Way more dangerous than what this group did.

1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

But these are just the happy stories,
Google "parkour killed" and you'll see these people die all the time. So it's not just about courage.

I suppose I could, but the video is too long for me to want to watch the whole thing. I saw the beginning where she was 'training' I guess, and the end where she hung off the big beams on top of the building.

Sure, I can watch it. I assume she didn't die since they made the video about it. I think what they did was stupid, though.

For those of you who can't watch this, can you watch movies where the same kind of stuff happens (or is simulated and appears to happen)? Is it the fact that it is real that bothers you? Would it bother you if a guy were hanging around like that? How about a rather unattractive woman?
