A BASE Jump World Record

The Burj Dubai - a crazy-high skyscraper under construction in the United Arab Emirates, reaches 2,684 feet over the sea. This makes it the tallest man-made structure ever built. In May of 2008, a crazy Brit, Robin Schmidt, and his French buddy, Jan Bednarz, climbed all the way up the unfinished building and completed an (illegal) jump each. Watch them tell the story of their world-record jump and see the incredible footage in the video embedded above. Their jump is pure art to my eyes. Wow. (Via Laughing Squid).
