You know the expression: Getting high on life? Well unfortunately some people build up a tolerance to life. Some people seize the day, but after awhile they have to seize 2 or 3 days just to get the same buzz.
That's pretty much what happened to this guy who decided skydiving was a little too boring, so instead he decided to jump out of a plane with no parachute. Let's just hope his friend catches him.
It seems as though Montreal's Old Port was packed over the weekend and various incidents occurred within the masses of people. On Saturday night, one crowd was large enough that one local was able to jump off a raised platform into a group where people all held him up and let him crowd surf.
The Montrealer who took the big leap into the crowd, Michael Torres, told MTL Blog it was "the best jump of [his] life."
What's the wildest dive you've ever done? Were you scared?
My coaching staff and I have done an awesome job at keeping some of my craziest dives a secret to the world so that when we compete them it will be an epic moment.
Let's just say I've done some pretty wild dives off the 20-meter platform including triples in many directions. Was I scared? ABSOLUTELY! There is always a level of fear being up that high knowing you are about to take a leap.
But, my coach, Stephane Lapointe and I have always stuck to our number one rule; only go up for a 20-meter dive when you are physically and mentally prepared.
Learning how to fly your fears in the right direction so they feel controlled and safe allows high divers to execute our bravery in the most elegant ways.
I am also surrounded by two of the most talented female high divers in the world; Lysanne Richard & Jessica Macaulay.
These two brave women inspire me every day with their diving and cheer me on as I enter their amazing sport. Truly an honour to train beside such talented women.
How did you grow such a large following on TikTok and Instagram? What's it feel like to know thousands of people are watching your videos?
When I started high diving, I really wanted to share my dives with the world every time I learned a new one.
Due to our decision to hide a lot of our training from social media, I began to create a lot of behind-the-scenes videos of the sport of high diving. I would post videos walking around in the rafters that hold the lights at the Montreal Olympic Stadium as this is where our platform is attached.
After roughly five months of high diving and video creating, we hit 2 million followers on TikTok! A technique I decided to use was creating my own hashtag for all of my brave followers: #BraveGang.
The message I was trying to portray was that you do not need to jump off 20 meters to be considered brave. Bravery comes in all beautiful shapes and sizes and deserves to be celebrated at every level.
With this hashtag, we created a movement allowing individuals to share their own unique beautiful brave stories with the world and know that they had a community behind them supporting them.
This movement brings tears to my eyes every day and I am so inspired by all the "Bravies" in the "BraveGang."
Many people think you have to travel to Iceland or even just Northern Ontario to see the Aurora Borealis aka Northern Lights. But it's good to keep in mind that you can actually do stellar stargazing within a three-hour drive of Montreal.
Yes, the photos make it look like the prime site for an alien abduction slash the set of Stranger Things or Star Trek.
But if alien abductions are this beautiful and magical, we say bring 'em on! Note to the extra-terrestrial averse: there is no evidence of any alien abductions taking place at this locale.
The Dark Sky Viewing Area in Ontario's Lennox and Addington County "is the most southerly point in Ontario that offers a night sky experience very similar to what was available more than 100 years ago," as stated on the website.
And you can potentially see the Aurora Borealis, Milky Way, Saturn and Jupiter depending when you go.
