Funny English Video Twenty Six
"Climbing - The World's Loneliest Sport"

(These videos are best viewed with Internet Explorer.)
This is just a silly video of "mountain climbers" who are actually trying to "climb" the sidewalks of London as if they were on a mountain. It sounds crazy, but the BBC reporter seems to take them seriously. The leader of the group tells the reporter, "If I come unstuck here, I'll go down quite a long way, ha ha ha ha". The reporter concludes, "Such quiet courage is typical of the way these chaps shrug off danger (they forget the danger). Like it or not, you've got to admire the skill that goes into it". And then comes a sudden, tragic (very sad) ending... (^_^)
