The native american practice of counting Coup when you rush into battle and simply touch the enemy with a stick instead of killing him with a war club to show your bravery, sneaking up on sleeping bears to cut some hair off their butt and show your bravery. Young men have probobly always done stupid sh#t to show off and get a thrill...

Thank you, Mike Honcho for offering some fresh air in a room full of farts.

Wow, thanks so much for that post, Healyje. Silly boyz gotta get their extreme on. The design of that tower was brilliant, the shifting lever to absorb shock. But the virtual face-plants--oy!

Yeah man! To be clear, this is Hank Caylor. You guys also gotta' remember BASE jumping and climbing have a very sketchy and close historical relationship.

Thomas Cosgriff
Randy Leavitt
Rob Slater
Xavier Bongard
Will Oxx
Etc.

These guys were all at the vanguard of BASE jumping when it 1st came to any type of popularity, and if there'd been wingsuits every single one of them would have been WAY into them!

^^ You can't broad brush one person's criminal activity to the whole sport, but yeah - the sketch factor is interesting.

In 2005, he escorted another man onto an adjacent property to videotape him having sex with a stallion. The man later died from internal injuries.

I had a friend who raised and trained Arabian horses. I was there one day during a breeding. It was the most brutal thing I had ever witnessed. Stallions don't play. Anyone who remotely thinks this would be a good idea as a participant must have an epic case of world class self hatred. I shudder at the thought.

Boring day at the office? Maybe they should take up base
