    It looks like fun, but it's more dangerous than fun. I don't think that this will ever become an Olympic event. Wasn't an example of this extreme sport shown in the last James Bond flick?

    Parkour is very cool to watch. Fascinating things they can do. Sadly, you can only do it for a very limited time in your life. It's hell on the body.

    I get the feeling that he needs a big dose of aspirin by the end of the day, followed by a glass of wine..I used to climb cliffs when I was in France and climb trees and the like. Get me to climb a tree to saw branches these days and I find myself freezing up when the wind blows.
