[SUPER=75-Koblenz, Germany]


In our Video of the day - this courageous bunch in Germany netted together a 420 pound rubber rope and 17-thousand knots - then bungee jumped.
The 160 foot dive earned the 30 jumpers a spot in the Guinness Book of Records - the previous record was set when 25 people bungee'd together.
