At the risk of calling ASTRA.XTREME for Flame baiting a religious argument... Astra does it annoy you because he believes in GOD? If so, he is entitled to believe in God.  Just how I find it annoying that you "get annoyed about someone who believes in God". The man almost lost his life, so get over yourself.

Very cool stunt, but it was extremely annoying hearing him "praise" jesus every 5 seconds.

 

 

What would you be saying, knowing that you could die at any moment ... ? ;)

to us watching it was annoying, to him it was calming and a way to keep himself in the right state of mind

Wow, over-exaggerate much?  Whether he said jesus, satan, or mashed potatoes, it doesn't matter.

The audience gained nothing from hearing his mic other than having to listen to him repeat the same phrases hundreds of times.

I said nothing negative towards the religious aspect for it, so it is you that needs to get over yourself for making that assumption...

I'm not religious, but after something like that, I'm pretty sure I'd be praising God, Jesus, Zeus, Krishna all the same... :ermm:

^ The audience probably wanted to hear his blood curdling scream as he fell off the wire. :laugh:

 

And there is a Mute button on the remote, for a reason ...

One of the female commentators in the beginning sounded like she wanted to see him fall.

But yeah having the mic and also camera at the "impact zone" on the ground was a little fishy.  :rofl:

they where there for documentation reasons... this family always documents everything they do so they can watch it again and learn what was right, what was wrong, what to improve next time... not to get a close up of a body smashing

I wonder if anyone was following Wallenda along, with one of those stunt air mattresses, just in case ...

When your walking on a two inch rope across the Grand Canyon you can praise whoever the hell you want. The guys balls could be seen from space. It freaked me out watching him at times and I had to turn the channel, just to turn it back a few minutes later. Unbelievable balls to do what he did. Watching that wind kick up and his focus was amazing. How much money did he make from doing this.  One of the greatest stunts of all time.

- What the Discovery Channel needs to do now is offer people $50,000 to try and walk across the Canyon to see if they could make it. Turn it into a weekly show.

^ It was not the Grand Canyon exactly, as I tried to make sure no one thought so, in the OP. ;)
