In about two hours, Discovery Channel is having this guy Nik Wallenda walk across a wire near the Grand Canyon live with a 10-second delay, for obvious reasons.
It's not really at the Grand Canyon, since the National Park Service is not allowing it. The stunt is actually taking place across the gorge of Little Colorado River Navajo Tribal Park. The gorge is roughly 1,400ft across, 1,500ft above ground. He's supposed to be walking across on a 2-inch (5cm) wide cable.
Kinda hope this guy falls. Fucking idiot, if you ask me.
Gonna get on my desktop and see if I can stream it for you Eurofags. He's not going to walk for another hour or so; they're just talking about it and describing the scenario.
Unless they're describing with picture and renders of how it would look if he fell down on sharp cliffs, while getting attacked by a bald eagle and then as the human-jam hit the ground he gets eaten by trouts that then get devoured by a bear. Then that'd be interesting.
