Nik Wallenda has successfully walked a tightrope strung between two skyscrapers in Chicago. The wire was 500-foot above street level, and even had a slight incline. Oh, and Wallenda was blindfolded at the time.
You can watch the whole stunt play out in the video above, and it helps knowing he successfully bridged the gap without falling to his death.
However, I must admit I don’t agree with this kind of stunt. It’s absolutely pointless, for starters, so I would personally prefer to celebrate scientific breakthroughs and uplifting news rather than this nonsense.
The biggest thing for me though is what would have happened if he’d fallen. He would have died, having exploded on the pavement. Wallenda could have physically injured people, and the witnessing something so horrific would definitely leave mental scars.
