Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Scraping their fingernails on the ledges at 100MPH

This club of base jumpers go to the top of the mountain and jump off a cliff with wing suits on. They glide down their mountain at near-terminal velocity hugging the contours of the mountain, trying to keep at least five feet (I'm sure they'd say one and a half meters) from the mountain. This means they aim to get to about five feet from the mountain outcroppings, bridges, boulders, or trees at their full speed. Far and away the most amazing and dangerous base jumping stunt I've seen.

Prepare to be thrilled and to hold on to something a little tighter than you were before watching it.

Would you ever?

I wouldn't. I have kids.
