Watch two guys prove you can long-jump subway platforms6/12/2012
Anyone who's visited New York City — or pretty much any metropolis with an underground rail system — has probably thought: "I wonder if I could jump across the tracks and make it to that subway platform on the other side?" Most of us are prevented from testing the theory by either laziness or a lame fear of being hit by an oncoming train. Not these two New Yorkers, who prove it really is (just barely) possible to long-jump between subway platforms. Which means there's no need to try it out yourself, ever.
Do you think you could pull this off?
