There are safer ways to travel from Point A to Point B, Nik!
In mere minutes of posting time, the self-proclaimed "King Of The Wire", Nik Wallenda will attempt to tightrope across the Colorado River gorge of the Grand Canyon, to be broadcasted over the Discovery Channel. The usual words for a stunt like this come to mind: crazy, insane... but there's also... crazy. Tune in if you can, and God speed Nik Wallenda. Hopefully will have a cool update later tonight of some would-be stunning visuals.
UPDATE: He made it! For 20+ minutes, Nik Wallenda was 1500 feet above ground with just a suspended cable between him. Wow. Here's some tweets and retweets I had during #skywire. And for some video and more coverage: hit the Discovery Channel until it's online.
Aaaaandd... you knew this was coming...
