I thought it was over when the cars derailed and then to see the tank car emerging from the mist...I pretty much had the same reaction....ohhhhhh shit!!!!

could you imagine being the engineer and knowing that there wasn't anything you could do? it's not like he could speed up or slow down in a meaningful timeframe. And obviously he could change course.

Love the train wreck!

This is a slideshow rather than a video, but a good watch.

Best watched in full screen mode (click the little arrows in the lower right corner); Press your Esc key to exit full-screen.

Preikestolen: read about it on Wikipedia.

This is some guy para-skiing off the Eiger in Europe!!
Really takes the phase "pucker factor" to new heights!
It's freakin' amazing!!

So funny -- my mom e-mailed me this video just this morning!
The cat in the video, by the way, is a clone of what ours looks like in every respect.

Cute!

Chongo does fall into the cool category

Chongo from j ahn on Vimeo.

Known as a legendary pioneer of slacklining and big wall rock climbing and as a lover of quantum mechanics, Chongo lives a transient lifestyle that is mostly possession-free, yet surprisingly dependent on modern technology's "human network."

that guy can ascend the Eiger faster than I can walk to the neighborhood grocery store.

Atari, as I've recently gotten into rock-climbing, I bet I've watched that video a dozen times. Of all the free-solo clips I've watched on YouTube, this one astounds me the most. Ueli trained specifically for this climb for an entire year before he attempted it. Seeing him scale the rocky face with just crampons and ice tools makes my palms sweat, and watching him running (running!) in crampons along the summit ridge, with a cornice clearly visible, just leaves me speechless.

Unfortunately, these free soloists don't often live to a ripe old age due to the risks they take. If you've seen the video of Dan Osman free-soloing Lover's Leap, you wonder how the hell he wound up finally killing himself in a situation when he was actually tied in to something. Free soloing is cool to watch, but the guys who do it are just a little bit nuts.

Yeah, this one has even more of a pucker factor for me when watching it than the one of Dan Osman free soloing Lover's Leap in California, which is, in its own right, absolutely astounding, and which I've watched many times.

Bulldog, I liked it so much I downloaded. It really is an incredible feat. If I didn't watch it, I would not have thought it was humanly possible. The guy really is amazing. Beyond the climb up, as you said, I just can't believe he RAN with crampons on that narrow summit ridge. The other thing that impressed me is how incredibly fast he made it up that steep snow slope near the summit when he was on all fours. I remember how SLOOOOOOOW I was on the main chute at Whitney a few weeks ago, and laugh when I think Ueli would probably have taken five minutes to finish that thing! laugh
