Nagano Makoto's run

Wow, that was amazing, thanks for posting :)

I dunno, a ninja as physically fit as him might be the only one who'd give Chuck Norris and Keanu Reeves a run for their money.

QBRanger January 17 2007 3:32 PM EST

All I can say is WOW!!

Impressive, although you can tell the age is getting to him with the way he was getting in that second task of the 3. He probably would have raced through that in his younger years ;)

bartjan January 17 2007 4:40 PM EST

If you meant the 3rd one out of 4, then note that that one does not have a time limit ;)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] January 17 2007 4:45 PM EST

I know bart but I was almost worried he'd keel over and die with his breathing pattern only half way through it.

Ninja Assassin You think that's fast - you should see the video of the Pirate doing it :) Pirate 2

great pics there G Beee, and Jon, can you please add Beee to the spell checker?

Amazing! O_O

Oh and Geee, today I was bought a copy of the Pirates versus Ninja comic! ;)

O.o I saw that once before, but a North American version.

Absolutely amazing. Especially the last one. 20m in 30 seconds? That's rediculous. :P It's enough trouble to climb up a rope, let alone with a time limit.

QBsutekh137 January 17 2007 11:28 PM EST

By the way, assuming our ninja weighs ~75kg that's:

20 meters against gravity = 75 kg * ~10 m/s/s * 20m = 15,000 Joules of potential energy generated.

15,000J in 30 seconds = 15000/30 = 500 Watts of power.

500 watts of power = ~0.67 horsepower.

In other words, for 30 seconds, our ninja was generating the power of 2/3 of a horse. Or, he was powering 5 100W light bulbs.

Not too shabby.

Yeah, I use ninjas to light my light bulbs all the time.

Sir Woot January 17 2007 11:57 PM EST

Sut, how many library of congress' does that translate into?

AdminJonathan January 18 2007 12:01 AM EST

I'm always blown away every time I watch this

AdminG Beee January 18 2007 4:04 AM EST

The video of that guy scrambling up the mountain gives me butterflies in my stomach.

A Lesser AR of 15 [Red Permanent Assurance] January 18 2007 4:11 AM EST

Wow, an even better find Jon.

AdminG Beee January 18 2007 4:28 AM EST

Dan Osman:
He died November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope cut while performing a controlled free-fall jump from the Leaning Tower rock formation in Yosemite National Park. The exact cause of the failure is unknown, but a change in jump site selection which caused a rigging entanglement is most likely.

QBsutekh137 January 18 2007 10:26 AM EST

Good lord! Wow, I think for safety, they should take the "speed" out of that type of climbing. I mean, I'm all for amazing feats, but isn't just making it safely to the top its own reward?

Yeah, I am probably just jealous...

...and find it very tragic that Osman died while doing a controlled _fall_ using rope. He should have stuck with going up using his bare hands. :\
