wingsuit base jumping from Ali on Vimeo.

This is apropos of absolutely nothing that this blog is about. But it is frigging insane, and ultimately, I think that's what everything in life is about. There's a quote from one of these nuts in the video where he basically says "we just started trying to fly as close to the cliffs as possible because just jumping, by itself, was getting boring." Can you imagine fatiguing your nerve endings to the point that the only stimulus it can detect is flying past a craggy wall at sixty unprotected.
