    FWIW, it is not just the Russian kids. Few years back, Northern VA, guy made his own 90 ft bungee cord by braiding a bunch of cargo type bungee cords together. Took it out to a railroad trestle to try it out. Tied off and jumped. Trestle was 70 feet high. When he hit the ground, there was still 20 feet of slack. Yeah, THAT'S gonna leave a mark!

    I'm not sure what specie of tree it is, but we used to climb to the top of 2" diameter ones (about 15' to 20' or so), take hold and jump. Damn springy tree would bend down and back up. Hold on for dear life for a couple of springs and then let go on the way up. That was fun. The self made bungie looks fun, but...DAMN! :eek:

    Russians love jumping off sh1t. Of course industrial quantities of vodka can't hurt either:
