Austrian Crazy Person Slacklines a Cathedral

Christian Waldner has made history as the first person to walk a slack line set between the spires of the St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, Austria. I’m also guessing he’ll be the last person to do so. I doubt churches are actively searching for people to do stunts on their buildings. And if there is such a church please call me so I can start attending there.

If you’re unfamiliar with the sport of slack lining it’s when you take a rope or a length of webbing and stretch it between two points. Then you walk across it. It was made for people who thought tightropes were for wussies, also known as hipsters. At least Waldner is making the sport cool to watch. The only slackliners I’ve seen in real life is this group that stretches a tie-down strap 8 inches above the ground between two trees up on the University campus. You’re not cool, you’re in the way!

Hit the jump for a video of the crossing over.

    The Xinjiang region’s economy grew by 12 percent in 2012, compared to 2011, but many Uighurs complain that better-paying jobs, land and business opportunities are beyond their grasp. Uighurs account for a little under half of Xinjiang’s 22 million civilian inhabitants; Han Chinese account for 40 percent, according to government data. The Hotan area has about two million inhabitants, nearly 97 percent of them Uighur, according to census data from 2010. Retro Jordans for Cheap http://www.hspa.com/product/NewJordans2013.php
