I (at least try to) go to the dentist twice a year, and I love when I’m able to get out of with them telling me I’ve been doing a good job brushing. Never have they mentioned that my teeth looked like they were strong enough to do that.
Erendira Wallenda, the wife of famed high wire artist Nik Wallenda, completed her own heart-pounding stunt today, a daring maneuver that involves hanging by her teeth and toes from a hoop dangling out of a helicopter as it flew over Niagara Falls.
The aerialist stunned onlookers as she performed the record-breaking feat, telling people afterwards that the stunt was harder than she expected because of the weather.
“It felt amazing. It was a little more windy than I expected it to be, but then I just put myself back in my backyard where I train all the time,” Wallenda said in a press conference following her stunt. “I felt good enough to where I was able to hang by my teeth a second time.”
I did two pull-ups in seventh grade, so hanging from a helicopter over Niagara Falls is obviously the next logical step.
