People who like to jump off cliffs for fun scare me. People who jump off cliffs wearing a flying squirrel-esque outfit are freaking amazing.

Ah, this looks so dangerous, but I would love to try it. Definitely more intense than bungee swinging.

(And can someone tell me, is the music Final Fantasy or Crono Trigger?)

I'm going to say Final Fantasy.

In the About blurb, it says the guy's a performance artist.  Still don't get the statement he was trying to make.

That...was probably the worst thing I've ever seen. Ever. I feel like I need to go wash my eyes out with burning acid after seeing that.

Proof that not everything that comes out of Japan is entertainment gold. Take that crazy otaku people...

... Is flying like that possible? O_O

As for the other.. He was wearing a.. Gas mask!? Not sure I even want to think about the Hatsune Miku one that was previewed at the end either.

This one is just cool, not disturbing or frightening...

I'm not quite sure, but the dolphins appear to be defying the laws of physics in that video. At least they still don't have opposable thumbs. :-)

How.... how are the bubbles not just going quickly to the surface... I... I don't get it.  ???

I honestly can't tell... They look like rings to me, but I wonder if they're not disc-shaped and the edges just reflect the most light, making them look like rings. They appear to carry WAY too much forward momentum either way though. My first thought was that the dolphins were using sonar and had figured out a way to setup some sort of harmonics that keep the bubbles moving or something, but if that's the case, it's even more frightening than if the bubbles are just behaving that way on their own. The could perhaps be "blowing" water currents on them from their snouts. Anyway you look at it though, it's very dexterous and "intelligent" behavior. I can't NOT think of this article. http://www.theonion.com/content/node/28315
