valiha: watercolor painting of my cat Lola (Default)
I just watched the opening of the 443rd annual Old Bridge high diving competition in Mostar. It was held last night at midnight, and the competition is tomorrow. All I can say is Oh. My. God.

They had a stunt man put on a cape.

Then they doused him with gasoline...

...and set him on FIRE...

...and he jumped! 22 meters down into the cold water of the Neretva River!

I could not find any good, clear videos of the event, so I'm posting a clip of the Red Bull diving competition, which was held, I believe, earlier this year.

Forgot the cut... )
