Generally speaking if you jump off a mountain at any great height, there's only one way it ends: human pizza.

Which is why this video is such a feel-good tribute to people with too intense an addiction to adrenaline.

For here we have Raphael Dumont, a man prepared to jump off a mountain wearing a wingsuit but no parachute, AND the technical ability to direct himself to a lake and land pretty much safely.

UPDATE: Except...

Alright, we admit it, this one isn't quite as cool as it seems. Although technically it's true that he didn't have a parachute, because he wasn't even there when the video was made.
