A Trip Up the Mast With Helmet Cam

Try this one:

Strange & Amazing on Yahoo! Video

Be sure to switch to "fullscreen" for maximum vertigo.

So yeah, here I am, rocking along through life, thinking I can handle pretty much anything...thinking I have some pretty impressive internal fortitude...all that time I didn't know I was only one video away from instant Wuss-dom.

Either that dude is crazy, or that's actually a vital piece of his anatomy "dangling 30 feet below him."

Maybe for a million

I'm thinking how much I would want to get paid for that....hmmm it'd cost a lot. No more.....a way lot....a way big, huge amount of money. Then I'd quit.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
