TEDActivators are always doing cool things — whether it’s starting a new business, collaborating with artists, realizing wild and crazy dreams or even jumping off a building for fun. We spotted brave TEDActivator Doug Abrams and TED2012 speaker Lior Zoref ”sky-jumping” at the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas. The experience, called Sky Jump, holds the Guinness World Record for the highest commercial decelerator descent which is like a giant bungee jump without the bungee. You’re instead connected to a high speed “descender” machine that slows you down as you approach the ground. We love what Doug says about true friends right before he jumps: “You can’t drink alone and you can’t die alone.” We second that, Doug!
