Video: Urban Climber Takes on Tallest Residential Building in the World

James Kingston is a British man who has earned himself a reputation for being a bit of a daredevil by climbing buildings and towers in urban settings, filming his exploits, and posting the clips to YouTube. In this case, he captured his climb to the top of a 101-story building in Dubai that is the tallest residential structure in the world. As you can imagine, the ascent is a vertigo inducing affair, and it goes without saying that you shouldn't try this yourself at home. It is awfully fun to watch though.

Video: "Jetmen" Make Dramatic Flight Over Dubai

We've featured "Jetman" Yves Rossy, and his impressive looking jetpack, here on the Adventure Blog before. But now he's back, and he's brought a friend along for the ride. In this video, Rossy is joined by his protege Hetman Vince Reffet on an impressive flight over the city of Dubai. The two men fly in formation while the "City of Dreams" makes for a dramatic backdrop. The personal aircraft the two men use during their flight looking incredibly fun to fly, and while I'm not ready to give it a go just yet, it sure makes for a fun video.

Thanks to my friend Rick for sharing!
