A Fall Is Still A Fall

Here's today's ""Holy s***" moment for you.  Here is a guy who goes by the name of Aisikaier.  He's a tightrope walker in China. For some reason, he felt the need to walk a tightrope that was 650-feet high.  Not only that, he felt the need to do it backwards AND blindfolded.  Yeah, OK, so that didn't really go very well.  Yep.  He fell.  Now, if you read the account of it over at Colorado's Channel 9 News, you might not get the idea that this was a big deal because they said that since he was kind of close to the end of the 2,300-foot walk that "...the drop wasn't as large as it could have been."  I don't know about you, but any sort of a fall is going to feel pretty large when you're a blindfolded tightrope walker.  Here's a video of his not-very-large-by-some-standards fall.
