Later, in the water…

And that, ladies and gentlement, is the true story of how I jumped from a 22m cliff after thinking about it for a bit. I entered the water at 20.77 m/s (or 74.76 km/h) and impacted the water with 18935.2 joules in kinetic energy. That’s quite a bit.

But the main thing is how philosophical it was. There’s you, and the cliff, and having the presence of mind of overcoming your instincts.
I know I can hardly make justice to it in words… but it’s exhilarating, and I advice you to go to Sozopol and try it.

But beware of one thing: Never look down to the water while you are falling, or you will have to pay the price in blood.
The blood of your gums.

  1. omg. 22 meters is like 70 feet. You’re nuts. We have instincts for a reason. I’m so glad you’re alive. Did you jump a second time? I did a cliff that was between 40 and 50 feet once and that was more than high enough. I’m fairly certain I would have died if it had been 70 ft. I think I would just have a heart attack in the air. Seriously. Props to you.

  2. I failed to mention that the first time I did it from a slightly lower ledge, then two others from the very top xD It was awesome.
