Kottke has a post about ‘What Fast Looks Like’ – a collection of videos of people driving/skating/riding/flying very very fast. Without a doubt the coolest (where by coolest I mean shit scariest) has to be the basejump guys in wingsuits gliding feet away from the ground at ridiculous speeds.

And while I wish I had the balls to do something like that as te rush must be amazing this headcam vid of a guy surviving a parachute jump when both his chutes fail makes me fairly scared of jumping from great heights.
