road jumping in the city in Russia 1

A new fun is growing in popularity among Russian teenagers in big cities. It is rope jumping from the roofs of the houses right in the middle of busy city day life. It scares passers-by but who cares?

      About to get pwned by Darwin.

        I can almost assure you this guy did not survive.

        1) The cord he uses is about .5 to .75 inches in diameter. I have bungee cord of that diameter and as a kid I used to stretch it till it broke.

        2) The cord is not well attached to his ankle, the loop will expand when it’s put under tension; thus slipping off his foot as soon as weight is place on the knot.

        3) There is zero clearance between the ropes anchor point and the side of the structure. Notice how he jumps away from the building, creating an arc that will swing (slam) him in to the structure.

          I can almost guarantee you this is a photoshop job.

          — why only one photo of him jumping? seems that would be where you would take th most photos?

        • Krabby says:

          If this is not photoshop,he is dead or with serious injuries.Or maybe,with this hot body,he is the “Iron Man”?
          Ladies,get wet and ready.

          > I can almost assure you this guy did not survive.

          I can assure you this is actually possible, altho i tend to think these particular photos are fake.

          > 1) The cord he uses is about .5 to .75 inches in diameter. I have bungee cord of that diameter and as a kid I used to stretch it till it broke.

          It’s not bungee cord, it’s a dynamic climbing rope.

          > 2) The cord is not well attached to his ankle, the loop will expand when it’s put under tension; thus slipping off his foot as soon as weight is place on the knot.

          The knot is a figure eight, with the main bight passed through it, in reality it would cinch (very!) tight, most likely detaching his feet from his body, or worse case cutting through itself like a hot knife through butter. Tension + friction = death

          Yep, for real rope jumping see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtP6D7S5LAk

  2. Vacuum says:

    That’s incredible! He is so f#cking crazy!

  3. Jim says:

    Can’t be real. How does he not hit the side of the building. The rope on his unprotected ankles would certainly cause a very painful injury.

  4. bearphotoshopper says:

    I did it (I, being the photoshopping bear)

  5. 7 mile Detroit Killaz! says:

    Annotha sign that you white people are CRAZY!

  6. Oni says:

    I imagine in the fourth frame, he’s missing a foot, hit a wall, then fell to his death.

  7. Pros says:

    I thought it was a benji-jump. But the guy is using a non-elastic rope.
    That will hurts… or is it fake? Photoshop or something?

    • Dodge Brothers says:

      I have elastic (Rubber,bungee cord) rope with that same exact identifying braid pattern.

    • Boris Abramov says:

      Fantastic! Talking Beaver a.k.a. Hannu, Dr. Vet, ornoxus, hck, etc, not only systematically changes his names in order to make it appear he more support for his racist anti-Semitic rants, but he also sabotages the reputation of his opponents.

      We can all now clearly see that this person will stop at nothing to spread his massage of hate. He will again subotage his opponents good names and will change numerous names him/herself. This crazed nazi fanatic will never stop. So the the best thing to do, is NOT to engage in any verbal interaction with this person. Doing so, we are just adding fuel to his racist fire.

  8. Bishop Brennan says:

    He looks like Roy Keane.

  9. Boris Abramov says:

    Does he like sheep the way I like sheep?

  10. Shizo says:

    Man, you people don’t get it. It’s a funny photoshop joke. The two pics were composited – one of the guy and another of the side of the building.

  11. ahtoh says:

    To make such that a jump is unadvisable. While jump like that make good show, I think to make noose is same thing

  12. Dodge Brothers says:

    A real bungee cord is very thick.

  13. Boris Abramov says:

    I had no doubts my good name would be sabotaged after challenging racist like Talking Beaver a.k.a. Hannu, Dr. Vet, ornoxus, hck.

    He wants me out of the way because I tend to challenge his/her racist opinions, and his racist massage of hate doesnt always work that well when I am in the way. Shame :(, he is gonna have to try harder then that!

    • Texas1 says:

      Boris, I am on your side with this issue. This type of activity is atrocious!

      • Boris Abramov says:

        I have a feeling that he might also be using your name in order to turn us against each other. I don’t think we will give him that satisfaction, do you?

        Anyway, in the real world, I am sure me and you would be the best of friends as long as we stuck to the no politics no religion rule as I do with most of my frineds. I like you Texas1, behind all that neo-con exterior I am sure there is a really nice guy.

  14. Caelus says:

    is there a photo that shows him survived after the jump?

  15. Chicken says:

    That guy is HOT :D

    waste if he died

  16. Pacific NW says:

    The way he’s tied off, he would have hit his face on the side of the building after reaching the length of the rope.

  17. Kris says:

    Cause of death? Blunt force trauma. Tough job for the cleaners to get him off the wall… and from the sidewalk below.

  18. Jewish Prostitute Sarah Zaluppa says:

    He looks hot! I want to have sex with this guy!

  19. Mike V says:

    Looks like an ordinary dynamic climbing rope.

    The rope stretches and slows your fall fairly gently.

    Ideally you’d put a towel around your ankles before tying the rope like they do in commercial bungee jumping, but while it might be a little uncomfortable, you won’t get injured.

    Rope jumping is quite popular in the States as a sort of extreme sport.

  20. Nat says:

    He’s hawt.

  21. Krabby says:

    “he’ll likely pop an ankle and smash against the building”

  27. @jason. If she refuses to put guy-guy action in her videos, why is it on show on her tour for the whole world to see. Her “male” dancers make out on stage! And the Telephone video is to promote homosexuality. So get your facts straight. Loser
