Pittsburgh Paragliding Could be the First to Parachute Off the Great Wall of China
Base jumping seems to be a growing trend as thousands of adrenaline junkies look for new ways to go to the extreme. Well, after I saw the story about the dudes that base jumped off of the NYC Freedom tower, I was surfing YouTube when I found this video by a group called Pittsburgh Paragliding, who claim to be the first to parachute off of the Great Wall of China.
I want to know what drives these people to just wake up one day and think, “You know what, I think I’m going to jump off a tall building and risk crashing to my death”?
Heck, when I went to Zion National Park in 2013 and hiked up Angel’s Landing, the dude I went with had to literally pay me to just look over the edge. Yet, people are jumping off high rise things on purpose.
Hey, I guess whatever floats your boat.
And, here I am, thinking about how to avoid the craziness of some of our jacked up intersections in town.
This is ‘Chicken Chaz’ signing off.
