Dudes Base Jump World's Tallest Building

A Britsh and  a Frenchman became the first men to base jump off of the Burj Dubai. This jump has since been established as a World Record for the highest base jump. They set off around 600 meters, near the 160th floor level. It took the two men an hour + fifteen minutes to climb the 160 flights of stairs (impressive especially cause they illegally snuck into the building site).

The best part of the video is watching the men jump. There is something about falling that seems straight out of a dream.

The fall reminded me of the Hong Kong scene in The Dark Knight. Beautiful.
