    ^^ Toby mate, I have no idea what that was, but all I can say is it was motherf*cking, balls-to-the-wall epic.

    Only surpassed by the sheer epicivity of your profile statement...

    "I love`em in frills,
    I love`em in lace,
    But I love`em the best when they sit on my face."

    I`m going to crawl into a corner now and die a happy man. My life has been fulfilled, I have achieved Nirvana, Elvis has left the f*cking building.

    Thank you Toby. Thank you.

    How did he not die? That`s like hitting a concrete sidewalk. People commit suicide by jumping off the golden gate bridge and die on impact. How come he survives this?

    @Windy: If he didn`t tape his knees, I assume that what happened to the tape would have happened to his skin. OW!

    I also think that the nose was tape, and not sunblock.

    My real question is that if you`re going to jump from 172 feet to tie the record, why not go to 172.5 feet, or 172 feet 1 inch. Just to beat the record. I don`t know squat about diving like that, so maybe it makes a difference, but I would think you`d want to break it, not tie it.

    I suppose the tape was the only thing keeping him from breaking his legs on impact? Cause that must have hurt like craaazy.

    if you pay attention there`s a jet stream shooting water where he`s going to land. this breaks the water tension

    he landed on his face during all of the attempts

    Why would you aim to TIE the world record?

    I mean really, how much self confidence are you lacking if you can`t for 1 moment say `you know what, I`m going to be THE best`.

    "Let grandpa tell you of a time when he became tied with the greatest man in history..."

    "Tied grandpa? That`s not very interesting!"

    I would SO do that.

    I love the feeling of falling. That`s why my favorite ride are those drop rides at theme parks.

    But seriously, why would he TIE the world record? Why not climb up an extra foot and BREAK the world record. One foot isn`t gonna make that much of a difference when your already up so high..

    holy poo................ wow...... I don`t have a fear of heights or anything but seriously i would be up their crying until I fall off or something happens.
    Did anyone notice how close he was to the edge of the pool when he landed? maybe 20-30 feet away from it? if the high dive was a normal high dive it wouldn`t matter but at that distance that is a close call.... :o

    so..he only TIED the world record? Why do you purposely TIE the record. One more foot and he would`ve set a new record. Hell, one more inch and he woulda set.

    The 7.5 was funny though, obviously ze French judge, lol. But I understand where the judge could make his/her argument.
