the almighty thrills and chills of life!
two emirati men, nasr al niyadi and his trainer omar al hegelan, have set the new world record after parachuting from dubai’s 828 meter burj khalifa tower (the world’s tallest man made structure), a couple days after the building’s inauguration. the duo fell 672 meters at a speed of 220 km per hour in under 1 1/2 minutes.
personally, i would have chosen the elevator; but that’s just me! 😉
