After free soloing up the north face, he stepped into thin air for a four-mile, 9,000-vertical-foot (2,743-vertical-meter) flight that took two minutes and 50 seconds. The extreme sport is unquestionably one of the most dangerous on Earth, but perhaps that's the allure:

"The motivating factor for all of this was just that I thought it was possible," says Tyler Bradt, who clinched the record in 2009 with a 3.7-second freefall over 186-foot (57-meter) Palouse Falls in eastern Washington (pictured). "I wanted to do it, I guess, because I can."

Think I saw something like that on 60 Minutes a while back ago. Crazy, crazy stuff.

Not as extreme as that is, but the Top Gear: Vietnam Special inspires me to go on a thousand mile trek through Vietnam, which looks like an incredibly beautiful country.
