Basejumping is crazy. It’s dangerous. I’m not into danger for danger’s sake—but…wow.

Just as I was posting this, Jump! came on the soundsystem in the cafe I’m working in.

Egad, I feel sick.

Via Current:

Recently it was discovered that the tallest building in the world – the Burj Dubai – had been the scene for a world record (and highly illegal) BASE jump. 1 British man attempted the jump and was successful, while a second man, a Frenchman, was caught before he could jump. They were both arrested and held in Dubai.
