    We need a thread like this. Go ahead and post that video that amazed, entertained, educated or befuddled you.


    "Shanghai high: ‘Skywalkers’ use the force to scale world’s 2nd-tallest tower
    Scaling 121 stories of steel girders takes nerves of steel, as two unflappable daredevils - a Russian and a Ukrainian - recently proved by climbing Shanghai Tower and filming the vertiginous ordeal."

    I'd advise you to watch this one full screen.

    This video isn't as gentle as Midnight's last one. Don Frye is a nut!

    These videos are incredible and get me tuned into of a level of adventure and thrills in life that are beyond me.They really give me the creeps and I think it's because my nervous system is over tweaked and way prone to over stimulation.
    Last week I watched the skeleton and had to turn it off, same with the Daytona 500.I couldn't stand to watch another crash.

    No wonder I spend all day playing my guitar.
