    This is just insane. Guy attempts a base jump with a go pro camera strapped on. The jump goes all kinds of wrong. The slow motion video is mesmorizing -- and painful -- to watch.

    On his vimeo channel, he lists the injuries as "Compression Fracture of the T12 Vertebra, 5 stitches to the eye, 6 stitches to the chin, severely sprained Back, wrist and hand. multiple bruised areas."

    Here is the original Business Insider link, where I found it.

    Is there any evidence the guy is a jerk? Because if he's a regular good guy, I don't want to watch.

    I thought this thread would be about this former staple on "ABC's Wide World of Sports:"

    Is this an allegory for gold prices?

    The only thing funnier than that video is this, from the comment section:

    Hello my name is Franz Reichelt and welcome to jackass

    I just looked at the comments. ... The guy above that comment complained that the audio is broken.
