Here is a video of a crazy Russian dude and his way of skipping chemistry at school. Please tell me this is better than anything you've ever tried http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Insane Russian guy (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=515642196227308929&pr=goog-sl)

Oh, it starts out real slow in the beginning, gets better at about 1/4th of the way. And I didn't pick the music :S

What he does is called "Parkour" (french) , thats also why there is french rap music in the video. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Parkour @ wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkour)

It is an urban youth sport coming from the Paris ghettos and was invented by David Belle.

He was tought by his father how do it.

His father was a soldier in the french foreign legion and learned the techniques from the vietcong which used them to move unbelievable fast through the jungle.

Thats why they were always a step ahead of the u.s soldiers. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

There are already Parkour championchips in France and it has a growing community in germany http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

This is David Belle in one of his movies

Comparing to the things he can do....the russian guy was an amateur http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


It is accepted in the public aswell as it is a real sport and an alternative that keeps the youth away from the streets and drugs.

^^^^^ The Movie with David Belle is called Banlieue (sp?) 13 or the English dubbed version is called District 13 actually a good action flick and the stunts using Parkour are amazing.
check the opening chase scene here.
