In yet another NOPE photo, mentally unstable young people jump off a 64-foot waterwheel in Syria in 1954. Note the person climbing on the bottom of the wheel, as well as those against the bricks. To reiterate, nope.

Have you ever done anything so daring?

    free falling for that long is a hell of a sensation

      You speak from experience? What about when you hit wrong? SMACK!

        If you cant jump without being assured a good footing then don’t jump at all, is my rule. With a good plant foot you should be able to get away from the rock and keep yourself straight up and down. It’s not for everyone, but it is an amazing feeling. I’ve done in the 55 to 75 range a few times. Fry’s leap in Maine, Jonestown RI. Never had the discomfort of missing my mark.

        I bet it was exhilarating, as long as the water is deep enough and you are assured life continues. You are braver than I am. I only skydived once, and that was with a person attached to my back. 🙂

        Well that is at least as daring. But I guess with someone strapped to your back its unlikely that person plans on dying so you are assured some measure of peace.

    It may not be cliff diving but it is just as crazy. I have jumped from planes and towers with a rubber band attached to my ankle but at no time was I in a position to land in water. A broken neck is one thing but drowning? Hell no.

    That, jumping on a bungee, and getting out of a perfectly good airplane in the air are all things I hope to avoid in this life.

  5. Nothing I would care to admit — and certainly not at my age. Nope.

    Insane. But I think this guy recently jumping 25,000 feet without a parachute tops it. http://www.topgear.com/car-news/video/watch-man-jump-net-25000ft-without-parachute
