    If this guy succeeds... he'll probably wind up in the Guiness Book of World Records. If he fails, he'll wind up with a Darwin Award.

    Most who succeed get applauded for their large kahonas. But if they fail everyone is quick to call them stupid.

    I am inclined to believe that taking risks involves some sort of a combination of those two qualities.
