25 Ways To Fall Faster Than The Dow Jones

 - Oct 9, 2008
Any extreme sport enthusiast knows that there are ways to plummet from great heights that don't involve trading stocks or the Dow Jones. As the Dow Jones fell 675 points in the final moments of trading, athletes around the world were base jumping, cliff diving and getting insane air off of 100-foot skateboard ramps.

This cheeky collection of extreme sports celebrates both urban and rural locales, from high-flying belly flops to elegant swan dives using a bungee cord made from condoms. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush that won't hit your wallet like today's plummeting Dow Jones, these sports let you fall somewhat safely. Financial traders--if you're considering a career change anytime soon, taking up these extreme sports is every bit as risky as following the Dow Jones.
