    I deliberately didn't place the option "Bold and stupid" in the poll.

    I laughed at this. would've laughed harder if he fell.

    What reason would one have to do this? Why would one not do this?

    Stupid. There's nothing bold about doing a punk version of yankee doodle dandy and the video doesn't match the emotional content of the song.
    ik sprokkel wat dagen, drop baggage,
    soms heb ik geen zin om die koffers te dragen,
    ik laat los, los het op, word onzichtbaar
    en geef de buitenlucht wat ruimte terug
    dus.. nu zit ik op m'n fiets alsof het niets is,
    maar niets kan toch niet uit zichzelf pedalen laten draaien?

    I think its both bold and stupid, I mean you'd have to be fairly gutsy to hang hundreds of feet above the ground on nothing but a metal bar, but one wrong move and its splat for them.

    Idiotic.

    It takes some cahones to do particular risk taking activities -- but this was just dumb of them.

    The guy at 0:56 is really cute! Beyond that, these guys are nuts.

    I would say it's idiotic, but at the same time, it's his intelligence and awareness of his own abilities that enables him to do it. I wouldn't ever trust myself, but I might do something minor that wouldn't kill me. Friends who don't know better think I'm being stupid. What's even more stupid is if they panic and get in my way.

    THat's a bit of an assumption. It could just as well be as overestimate of his own abilities that give him confidence. It's hard to say from just a video whether he really has an accurate view of his own capabilities. Still, he doesn't appear to have died, unless they edited that bit out then posted it anyway.
    Don't make whine out of sour grapes.

    Maybe he is overestimating himself, but sometimes these seemingly crazy bastards are really pretty grounded and don't let too much psyche them out. He's probably done enough pullups to know he's never slipped off of a bar before. In fact, it's kind of unlikely that anyone slips on a pullup. And being a thousand feet in the air isn't going to make that dramatic of a difference, in his mind (just to be clear, it'd make a difference to me.. I'd freak out at the slightest gust of wind). Not quite as crazy, but here's one of my favorite skateboarders talking about a sort of organic Se intelligence (not that it's necessarily an SP thing. Everyone's got it, in varying degrees, so they can probably recognize it in themselves). link. If they're pulling it off, it's not exactly as stupid as it looks.
