So, You Want To Crap Your Pants Eh. Then This Might Be Just For You Then [Video]





People do crazy things all in the name of having some fun┬ábut I don’t care how you slice it this mile long zipline ride in Nepal is more than a little insane, regardless of how much fun you might want to have.

Called the ZipFlyer it has a vertical drop of 2,000 feet and can get speeds up to 87mph over its 6,000 foot length.

In other words you can go fast enough to feel your face ripping off while you are praying that the line won’t break because if it does there probably wouldn’t be enough left of you splattered on the ground and in the trees to make a decent meal for the Nepalese tiger that is just waiting for Murphy’s Law to kick in.

There’s something to be said for living vicariously through other people’s stupidity though so I’ll leave you with this video of some *cough* brave *cough* soul tempting fate.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
