RE: Share some crazy people doing scary shit
How about some videos of people who look like they're doing crazy shit, but it's actually VFX trickery? Consider

Fake, yes, athleticism out the ass, yes.
'It's not "fake", it's "scripted".' At that point I usually punch the speaker in the metaphorical.

Pro Wrestling is soap operas for dudes. It's got all the same scripted backstabbing melodrama, but with the characters resolving their differences with folding chairs and cage matches instead of being catty at a posh soiree.

You have to watch a low-grade card live to appreciate how much stage acting goes on. One guy's flat on the mat and the other guy's on the top rope, ready to jump, but the first guy is out of position so the top guy just waits. The bottom guy siddles over until he's properly spotted and then gets "jumped on". Yawn.

Don't mistake me, I was not trying to be derisive. Even among schlocky entertainment, there are works that excel, and the difference in skill and showmanship is palpable. I love schlock, I love big dumb monster movies, I love cheap and gritty action movies with a ton of gore, and I especially love them when they're done well by people who care (i.e. Pacific Rim and Dredd). Pro wrestling isn't my personal cup of tea, but I understand the appeal, and wouldn't fault anyone who enjoys it.

Yeah, you are probably right there. Although jumping from a building and putting your 'Faith' in a complete stranger takes some doing.

I agree with both of you I'm just saying I admire the physicality and athleticism of it (not that yall don't, but a lot of people dismiss that aspect of it because it's not real competition). Many of the moves look extremely risky and I bet most of these guys are on pain meds the rest of their lives.
