Watch 245 People Jump And Swing Off A Bridge Like A Giant Dangling Snake

No longer confined by the limitations of a printed book, the Guinness Book of World Records has infinitely expanded to include almost every kind of questionable achievement humanity can attempt. Even grabbing 244 friends, jumping off a bridge and swinging by a rope is enough to gain you pseudo-fame -- at least until 246 people try the same thing.

This record-setting stunt took place in Hortolandia, Brazil, and involved the use of stiff nylon ropes instead of the stretchy bungee cords that could help absorb a lot of the momentum your body generates after jumping off a bridge that's around 30m tall. It doesn't exactly sound like fun, although this first-person video of the stunt somehow makes risking your life seem like a great time.
