Because You've Literally Done Everything Else: Tightrope Walking Between Two Hot Air Balloons

hot-air-balloon-tightrope-1.jpg

This is 'The Balloon Highline' a video of a group of French tightrope walkers trying to navigate from one hot air balloon to another. Nobody makes it. Thankfully, they were all wearing parachutes. Me? I would have just been wearing a backpack and TOLD everyone it was a parachute. If it's my time to go, it's my time to go. I'm coming, Lord! "Not up here you're not." Damn.

Keep going for one more shot and the video.

Thanks to Lydia, who was really hoping for somebody to make it all the way across. Me? I was hoping for the rope to snap.
