Death Wishes: Man VERY Narrowly Misses Cliff Jump

September 7, 2016


So, that's what dying looks like.

This is a video of illegal trespasser and cliff-jumper 8Booth (whose mom is no doubt worried sick about him every time he grabs his backpack and leaves the house) narrowly escaping a rocky death while making a jump off "el morro" at California's Crystal Cove. Apparently he underestimated just how far out the rocks stuck out below and "walked away from this jump with a minor scrape on my back. How? I do not know." Really? You don't know how you were able to walk away with just a scrape? Well I'll tell you: you jumped just far enough to miss actually hitting the rocks, but nicked them underwater and got scraped. That's how. This isn't rocket science. Jesus, if you don't understand that I'm not sure you should even be allowed to jump off the diving board at a friend's house.

Keep going for the whole video while we pass the time waiting for an unidentified body to wash up on the shore somewhere in California and this guy's poor mom have to deal with it.

Thanks to Joseph A, who informed me his first personal rule of cliff jumping is always jump as far as you can.

    What I want to know is why he always jumps when he is winded and hyperventilating. Maybe oh, I don't know...take a moment to compose yourself before just leaping into the void? I nearly had a panic attack myself just listening to him.

    I gotta hand it to this dude though...I don't know how he can even jump with the enormous clangers he must have. That thwack sound is his giant kiwis just pancaking into the water.

    Dude catch your breath before you take that jump & make a video

  • Munihausen

    Anyone who has played five minutes of any NES game would have used a running start for this jump.

  • NikkolaiV

    So he sees the fence, sees the no diving warnings, has obviously scoped this out from afar, and STILL decides to do this...has natural selection given up on the human race too?

  • pukoh

    Why god. Why didnt you take him. Is he not worthy? Probably not

  • Bubbubsky

    I can only think of Forrest Gump: "Stupid is as stupid does."

  • Jenness

    You can hear him swallow water and cough at the end. The entire time I was watching listening to him breathing hard I thought "This is such a bad idea" and yep - I was right. Again.

  • Michael Knight

    keep trying 8booth.... you'll get a darwin award for sure.

  • GeneralDisorder

    If my genitals ever stop working I'm gonna take up extreme stunts and keep upping the danger until it kills me.

  • That's all I could think about in bible school when they said suicide is a sin. I'm like... well, what about just doing super risky shit until you bite it? Loop hole?

  • GeneralDisorder

    The advantage of doing extreme stunts aside from that being more or less socially acceptable is you get high on adrenaline. It's feasible that impotent men could get adrenaline boners. So win win.

  • Draco Basileus

    At that height it still looks like he would have hit some of the rocks just beneath the water. I'm surprised he didn't break his goddamn legs or back.

  • sandul

    i think the fish eye lens distorted how far that rock formation was sticking out... OR... God slightly pushed his trajectory to not die a horrible death.

  • jrose

    Another one for the NOPE file.

  • Edward Booth

    what a bellend

  • TheQiwiMan

    I hope he made sure to clean up all the brown he left on the rock directly behind him.
