Tuesday was all about tempting fate. First, surfer Garrett McNamara took on a 100-foot wave, then this daredevil tightroped over a highway in Florida.

Insane or stupidly brave, tightrope walker Nik Wallenda has done it again.

As if Niagara Falls weren’t enough, he made this 600-foot walk over a highway with no tether and no worries. We think the fist pump says it all.

Famous for his astonishing tightrope walk over Niagara Falls, Wallenda wowed thousands of on-lookers in Florida on Tuesday morning as he traversed the 600-foot gap between the Sarasota Skywalk and the Marina Tower Condominium. The stunt was performed 200 feet above U.S. 41, and was completed without the safety of a tether, obviously because he couldn’t find one to compliment his awesome yellow T-shirt.

All that can be said is the man must have the biggest balls in the world to continue to push the limits with his stunts.
