Good thing he's wearing a helmet.

safety first dude.

the helmet is actually in case he spins during his rappel and ends up hitting the side of the building

I don't think ".gif unrelated" is necessary. That .gif will never be related.

you dont die from hitting the ground, you have a heart attack so you dont feel anything

Terminal velocity for an average human in free fall is about 120-130mph.
#13 to #1 - anon (03/12/2013) [-]
You probably wouldn't feel a thing
User avatar #33 to #13 - grocer (03/12/2013) [-]
And why would you not feel a thing? Have you fallen off that building before?
#76 to #1 - funnyrage (03/12/2013) [-]
oh c'mon its totally safe. i mean, he is wearing a helmet after all.
#54 to #1 - anon (03/12/2013) [-]
Don't worry, you'd probably die before you hit the concrete.....
#140 to #54 - anon (03/12/2013) [-]
How?

actually you cant go several hundred miles per hour, Terminal velocity of a human is 117-125mph in random posture. If the human has uses the bullet shaped position, (sometimes used by experienced sky divers or seen in movies), their terminal velocity can reach speeds up to 210mph.

There is no actual fear of heights, just being up there increases your chances of terminal velociraptoring the pavement.
User avatar #102 to #2 - yeahvinyl (03/12/2013) [-]
velociraptoring? what?
#145 to #102 - anon (03/12/2013) [-]
No, it's terminal velociraptoring.

Not that scared of heights. I'm scared my glasses will fall off into oblivion, though. I swear, I get so paranoid, I can't look down without holding my glasses like this!

As a person who greatly enjoys rock climbing, I said, " **** this, Im getting a neck strap"
#19 to #17 - autoxx (03/12/2013) [-]
My glasses never fell off, then last spring I got lasered. TOTALLY worth it.
User avatar #20 to #19 - waffies (03/12/2013) [-]
Tried to get lasered about a year back. they said wait two years so my eyes fully develop... sad ******* face
#86 to #20 - autoxx (03/12/2013) [-]
Well as long as you take care of them after surgery you'll be okay.
My eyes stopped changing a few years ago so that worked out well.
I was afraid of losing my night vision but actually it has gotten even better because I wear sunglasses during the day now and take care of my eyes more.

9/10 - Would zap again.

I'm legally blind, my vision is that bad. I can't even get lasered, the most the could do is make my vision half as bad, not fully fix it.

I'm sure that helmet will work wonders for you if something happened

Say he loses hold of his rope and he only falls 30 feet before he gains hold of the rope back but his head smacks into the Building at a high speed, it could save your life.... smartass
User avatar #8 to #5 - mrgusti (03/12/2013) [-]
it's to protect him from things that might fall on his head or him slamming it in to something rather than him falling on it.

Hes probably freezing his tits off.

You're not afraid of heights, your a afraid of falling. You're not afraid of the dark, your afraid of what could be in the dark. Etc.
User avatar #134 to #115 - zorororonoa (03/12/2013) [-]
You aren't afraid of right spaces, you're afraid of someone raping you in tight spaces
User avatar #135 to #134 - zorororonoa (03/12/2013) [-]

a fear of heights is illogical. a fear of falling is quite prevalent however
User avatar #92 - shredheadxd (03/12/2013) [-]
it's a good thing he has that hard hat on...

User avatar #159 - matt leaf (03/12/2013) [-]
He's actually not that high. That's all smoke, not clouds.
Now you know why it's called Khalifa.
User avatar #166 to #159 - applepiepony (03/15/2013) [-]
you can see higher than the tops of buildings, so yes, he is pretty high, just not to jet/plane height.
