Go watch one Cirque du Soleil show and you'll see what super things people can do.
While I was watching the first video, I was reminded of an incident years ago when my long time boyfriend and I were at my folks' house. We were all outside in the front yard watching some rubberband propelled flying thingamagig my wheelchair bound dad had just gotten to play with. It ended up on the roof, so my mom started to tell my boyfriend where the ladder was, but he said, "no need." He took a drag on his cigarette, considered grounding it out but it was just started, so he handed it to me to hold and ...
He took off running up the incline of the front yard, literally ran up the 6 foot block wall around the backyard, stopped momentarily on the top of the wall, did a 90
twist while taking one bounce step which launched him up and over, landing solid on the roof. He took a couple of leisurely steps over to the twirlygig thingie, got it, and simply walked off the edge of the roof with a rolling somersault land on the downward sloping front lawn.
The whole thing couldn't have taken more than a few seconds and he ended up casually walking to my dad, handing him the gizmo and then reclaiming his cigarette for another puff.
Freaked us all out, especially since he never did or practiced that sort of thing. He did have a freakishly amazing awareness and control of his body, with uncanny ability to master new physical activities very very quickly. In this case, though, he said he used to do that sort of running up buildings stuff all the time when he was a teen.
