Stop-Motion Parkour

This edit reminds me of the Cirque show KÀ. :-)

We can’t actually do flips and tricks in real life, so we applied a bit of video magic.

Thanks George.

Good luck with that, Hugh.

GSP is the former 3-time Welterweight Champion of Ultimate Fighting. And an aspiring gymnast.

People are awesome 2013

I’m a sucker for these videos. It’s a guilty pleasure.

There are a number of acrobatic stunts I’ve never seen before in this edit.

The highlight for me is the very last stunt. So simple. So terrifying.

what is ‘inspiration porn’?

… Inspiration porn is an image of a person with a disability, often a kid, doing something completely ordinary – like playing, or talking, or running, or drawing a picture, or hitting a tennis ball – carrying a caption like “your excuse is invalid” or “before you quit, try”. Increasingly, they feature the … quote. …

“The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”
– cancer survivor Scott Hamilton

This image of a little girl running on a set of prosthetic legs alongside Oscar Pistorius is often used as an example of inspiration porn.


Those who use the term, ABC’s Stella Young for example, should advocate for the abolition of the Paralympics.

They want everyone treated equally.

When I see Said-Elmahmoudi from Morocco put himself out there on the Karate Floor, I’m inspired to shut down this computer. And jump on to a mountain bike for a workout.

If he can do it, what’s my excuse?

If I’m inspired by Mitchell Marcus and Jonathon Montanez, I’m inspired. It’s an emotional reaction.

I’m inspired too by people who overcome obesity, poverty, other hardships.

For the record, I feel there is a place in this world for the Paralympics.

Thanks MissEducated.
