  • Funny how the white man has evolved and gone on over the last 100yrs to develop industries and technologies that better the modern society and give us the modern world complete with our pc's, space travel, planes, trains, automobiles, Hi-fi's, Plasma tv's, medicine, quantum physics, etc etc etc...yet most indigenous black people who have not had much interaction or help from the white man are still walking around dressed like primitive retards and living in mud huts or jumping off platforms with More..

    • @slamminsammy It has everything to do with race.

      What does Detroit being trashy have to do with this video? Absolutely nothing. The commonality is the skin color of the people in the video, and in Detroit.

      You are a hypocrite.

  • How many of you who've posted ignorant comments say the same about bungee jumping?

    This is culture. It's traditional (and incredibly brave) for these men in Vanuatu.

    Culture and an equiring mind is what's missing from most of the LiveLeak commentors. What a great tool we have for learning in the www's. Please don't take the piss and realise what a fortunate era we live in to learn and discuss.

    • @nessiedog Agreed...Sometimes we see things of beauty and tradition which can really open our eyes :-)

    • @nessiedog In fairness, bungee jumping is often seen as a pointless, dangerous activity.

    • @nessiedog I have taught kids from Fiji. They have much more respect for elders than spoilt Australian kids. In fact, one family decided to move back to Fiji for a year or two because our western kids had no idea or appreciation of real work is. They wanted their children to have the benefit of seeing hard work and a close knit community.

    • @deepecology yeah, its mostly just to prove that you are a manly man and fearless. at the same time its a thousand year old tradition. when its over everyone (men only) sits in the village chiefs hut and drinks kava. kava by the way is like natural xanax and yet it numbs your mouth and throat like cocaine!

    • @deepecology
      They could stand a bit of modernization though; I'm not suggesting computers and such but the wonder of bungee cords might be a modern marvel that would suit them.

    • @cALlme6 He's blaming the White man for these africans poverty. Had they only enough money to buy real bungee cords they wouldn't have to endanger their lives in this way. How many Africans die every year because the white man fails to help his fellow man? 0_0

    • @Walter Agreed. Besides, a life without money - fuck yeah. We waste so much of our lives stressing about money and work, etc. They just live day to day, and jump off towers they make. Fuck yeah xD

    • @slamminsammy at least those gentlemen are living in peace and harmony in their own land, rather than traveling abroad and having troubles finding decent jobs and blending with other distant cultures. that should fix it.
