I must be on a stupid kick today.
You’ve got to see this video- it’s only 10 seconds long and it’s not in English so don’t worry if your sound isn’t turned on:
It’s gotta be some kind of contest, but I can’t figure out what they are trying to win, most elaborate funeral perhaps? They are actually rating the dives!
I don’t know how high the cliff is, but it must be a couple hundred feet wouldn’t you say? The diver looks like he’s landing on sandy ground. What could be the point of doing this other than as I said to get an elaborate funeral or into the Guinness book of records for stupidest stunt?
When I saw the beginning of this video I thought it was going to be a cliff dive into water.
I remember when I was very little there used to be a show on TV that broadcast an annual cliff diving competition. I can’t remember where it was but Hawaii comes to mind. The show was just a vague memory until I saw the beginning of this video and it all came back to me.
