Living on the edge





Would you ever get this close to the edge of a 420 foot (128 meter) waterfall -- aka one of the largest falls in the world? In September and December people can swim as close as possible to the edge of Victoria Falls without falling over, in an area called Devil's Pool. Yikes... would you do it? It would definitely be an adrenaline rush!

(from here) Thanks Melissa.

It seems pretty safe (I had to read more about it) but I don't think I could.
