Pro skater Danny Way successfully completed his massive jump over the Great Wall of China yesterday, thus accomplishing in one deft manouver what hordes of Mongols failed to do.
It might seem hard for any extreme sports enthusiast to top Way's feat of daring and bravado, but sometime next year, skate legend Biff Burtbinder, backed by an undisclosed philoanthropist, will attempt to become the first person to skateboard in outer space.
When asked about the technical difficulties of trying to skateboard in a zero-gravity environment, Biff answered, "Dude! I've got a whole medicine cabinet full of gravity. No case of heartburn is going to stop this spaceman!"
