Sitting down? Feet comfortably on the ground? Good. Then click on the video above and prepare for TERROR. Or, at least, nerve-wracking shrieks of metal.

That's some unnamed loon parachuting down the side of a mountain, punctuating his descent with grinds on the cables of a chair lift. Oh, and as if that wasn't insane enough, he hops the tower rollers and then glides right back onto the wire.
