Mind Blown

wingsuit base jumping from Ali on Vimeo.

There really aren't words. You'll just have to watch.

I think it's a bit unfortunate that these men are doing something that seems so epic, fulfilling the timeless dream of flight, flight with no engine, not propeller, simply a man with wings. And what do they have to say about it?

"Dude, man, that was totally sweet. He coulda' like died, but man, it was aaaall good, bro!"

I exaggerate, but still.

Same concept as sugar gliders/flying squirrels. I love it when technology imitates nature.

Awesome video.

this is not what humans should be doing, This is insane and people will die, none the less I cannot stop watching.

Absolutely fabulous!

The part I find funny is when they talk about how regular base jumping got boring so they needed to spice it up.

How do you top that? How do you get more adrenalin than that?

I think we should make our own wing suits and start buzzing high mountain passes everywhere!!!! It seems like a great way to meet girls!!!

You make fun of them, but the first word out of my mouth while watching this was "dude!" under my breath. I'm not even kidding.
p.s. my word verification is "wishn", like it knew that I was wishin' I could go learn to fly from the wise norwegan's.
