…Bungee Jumping is no longer the most intense thing to do with a bungee cord?

Bungee Jumping is usually pretty extreme. I did it once, and despite my fear of heights, it was really fun. You feel like you’re flying, weightless above the crowd watching you from below. I remember that on the way down thinking that I was glad I liked it, since I was going to bounce soon and have to do it all over again a few times before returning to terra firma. The guys in this video though, they weren’t happy with just normal bungee jumping. They decided to take Bungee Jumping and add a little excitement to it. Instead of bouncing along, repeatedly enjoying the sensation of flying and falling, they decide to cut the cord right as the jumper reaches the ground, essentially allowing him to jump out of the crane and land Spiderman style on the ground after a single fall. It’s pretty amazing to watch, and must have taken quite a bit of planning to get the timing and the length of the cord just right (I guess we wouldn’t be watching the video if they got it wrong). I don’t think I’ll be trying this any time soon though. Jump to :50 if you don’t want to listen to the foreign announcers build up the stunt.
