Dan Osman Says You're Not Trying Hard Enough

It's very cute that you like to rope jump, Russians. Yes, rope jumping -- like bungee jumping, but without the comfort of a stretching cord to absorb the shock -- is a jarring and Mountain Dew Code Red XTREEM experience. I know from experience, having done it indoors at a climbing gym. It feels like someone has superglued a bit in your mouth and then tied the bit to a speeding city bus roaring away from you when the shock hits, and why anyone would do it instead of bungee jumping is beyond me. ↵

↵Whatever you do, though, you young, beautiful mad Russians ... you're still sucking on the vapor trails of the human comet that was Dan "the Man" Osman. ↵

↵It is also interesting and educational to note that Dan Osman died doing a massive 1000 foot rope jump at Yosemite. Unless you can die twice from 2000 feet, there's really no topping that.↵
