This Used to be a Fire Hall and Its Doors are Made from Old Fire Hose
How cool is this? A former fire hall’s doors are made from old fire hose and even the nozzle was incorporated! Located in Brussels, Belgium (62, place du jeu Balle) the space is now home to a restaurant called Pin Pon.
For those curious, the pattern is apparently known as an ‘8 mad weave’ (3 over, 3 under). Below you can see some photos of the door as well as an embedded Google Map street view.
Laso Schaller Sets World Record for Cliff Jumping—at 58.8 Meters (193 ft)
58.8 meters (193 ft). That’s the height 27-year-old Laso Schaller leaped from to set a new world record in cliff jumping.
The daring feat was accomplished at Cascata del Salto, which is located in the Italian-speaking Ticino area of Switzerland. The area features over 150 descendible canyons with countless waterfalls but Cascata del Salto is the grandaddy of them all.
To learn more about the record-setting jump, visit Red Bull.
