Re: Cool vids...again.

I've jumped off a lot of things, my high school jock identity was extremely tied to being a springboard diver on the school team. Did some indoor platform stuff up to about 5m, but that was the max the ceiling allowed. One summer,  1990-ish, my brother and I found a riverside cliff in Missouri by my grandparents house, climbed up it with a long surveyor's tape measure and kept jumping from greater and greater heights. We finished at 70 feet (20 meters, give or take). Scariest shit I've ever done. But that's the secret: you work up to it...and it's never not terrifying.

If youtube hadn't served me the same thing this morning, I'd be a bit worried.

Re: Cool vids...again.

@Drew: I was just watching one of Adam Savages QnA videos on tested about the Mythbuster days and he was talking about bungee jumping and how it's so true that every single time you go it just gets worse, even for the pros. (fun video, worth a watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AvhYMPvPR4)

I was a terrified of everything sort of kid, so the closest I ever got was... we had a 5m outdoor board at one of the swimming pools in town that I actually got kind of okay with jumping off by the end there. But that's about it. My blood still runs a bit cold thinking about much of anything higher than that, although weirdly I think I'd probably be okay with it now in practice (Maybe not 20, but probably 10), I just haven't even been near a swimming pool since I was 17.

Oh shit, I missed the last and thought you'd forgot the link. I assumed we were talking about this:

Re: Cool vids...again.

OH. Gotcha. We are, I posted that a couple months back and Drew was just replying, but I thought you were talking about the Wayne Brady thing I posted, so it's all sort of out of order and everything is just wackadoodle.

(It's on the last page, whee fun times with forum layout) It must've hit another trending phase so YT is posting it all over the place again, cause that's 100% how I found it last time.

Wow, Steph and I watched that, then we watched his other stuff - at first I thought he did more serious reviews then did the Ever clear as a gag, but no, his whole channel is like that and it's great.

He did Fireball dirty, though tongue

I could watch Jim talk about the Muppets forever.

It's so good, he pretty much immediately became one of those channels I will drop everything to watch when a new vid drops.

Jill Bearup analyzes fight scenes from a stage combat perspective. I first watched her Mask of Zorro one, but here's what might be my favorite one, contrasting two fight scenes in the movie Pacific Rim:

Re: Cool vids...again.

I watched that last night. Did you post that, is that how I saw it? Anyway, fascinating stuff.

Re: Cool vids...again.

I posted here, but that's it. Someone posted it in one of the many discords I'm on yesterday, and I promptly binged all 5 episodes so far.

And I love with the exception of Papa Roach, who had their whole garage band makes it big thing going on, all of the pieces were basically stories about just doin the work, thinking it was a failure or just another day, but then getting that momentary spark of dumb luck, and that propelling it to the iconic thing we all know. Very cool stories I had never heard before.
