We've all done stuff that we immediately regretted. Whether it's sending an ill-considered text, ordering the wrong meal choice or committing to an overzealous Veet-ing spree.
But that's all small-fry compared to the people below. Brave men, women and animals who took the jump, and bailed in the most hilarious/horrific way possible.
Learn from their mistakes, and never try anything ever again.
