Hey st2lemans, I assume this is you setting the cliff diving record?

This looks pretty scary but I'd like to assume it was one of own making the jump into the record books. Video is at the bottom.

Probably not - I haven't seen a post for "Knee ligament, insurance won't pay up" today

No, it can't be him, Tom isn't Swiss.

Lol. Of course he is. Just like everything else, he mentions it in every other post.

Oh! But if it is true, then it's only on paper! That's hardly the same thing!

You can't get much more American and non-Swiss than Tom!

Say what you will about Tom, I have trouble imagining him doing the jump that way - it would have meant him wearing a Kevlar reinforced buttplug, which is decidedly "un-tomlike".

If it were Tom, he would have done a perfect Swandive, in Speedo, without a platform to jump from.

Which is why the windows are open at the moment rather than cranking the A/C (though that will happen around 11 AM).

Please hold off a bit, I'm still recovering from my butt-plug visuals, and it's only 08:55.

Watch the way the guy hits the water in the video. Does the phrase "hydraulic lock" not spring to mind?

It's almost 2 hours since you posted this. Is it ok with you if I relate the continuation of my FWP post about cherries from last night, or shall I wait until you've eaten lunch?
