    Proof that there is always someone with bigger balls than you. I just came back from a skydiving week, always gave a massive smile (and V-signs) for the camera bungeeing/riding rollercoasters, but after careful thoughts, came to the conclusion that I wouldn't do this. BTW, while this height is sufficient for prepared BASE jumper (which requires lots of skydiving experience), the parachute would wear you down, and I wonder if you can recover should you fall unprepared.

    Should watch the video in full screen and put your face close to the screen to immerse yourself in the view!

    Re: wanna vomit this fine morning? watch this! SFW

    Don't suppose you would be interested in this then? http://www.ajhackett.com/macau/mastclimb.html#info I'd give it a shot, but it's kinda pricey and I'd rather try the bungee.

    But it makes me wonder why the tower in the video doesn't use a rail system like in the Macau tower so that the safety line can remain attached as the person climbs.

    Height doesn't make me want to puke, but I don't trust my free climbing skills, and lack of fear unfortunately doesn't mean impervious to damage

    Hell no! I just look at those photos and I start feeling dizzy!

    Looking at the photo gallery the last pic you can see where the bloke is taking the photo from - he's nuts!

    So true - it's not the heights I fear so much, it's the ground way way below it
