Personally, I don't have a problem with people who jump cliffs or do other risky stuff. I DO have a problem with primadonnas who need cameras or a crowd or a potential paycheck present before they do their big act of daring. That's whoring, plain and simple. Don't have a damn thing to do with God or spirituality or freedom, and saying so just cheapens it ever more so.
