Stunt Diver Belly Flops His Way To World Record

I wish an exhibit like this had been on hand when I’d lived in Denver and frequented the Water World water park just outside the city. Anyway, a former strip club DJ named Darren Taylor has made a name for himself as “Professor Splash” by jumping into shallow pools from ridiculous heights — and per Denver’s KUSA, he recently broke his own record.

Ouch. That has to leave a mark.

Taylor has set previous records in Italy, Germany, and Spain, and even keeps up a website which apparently contains one record-setting dive he did in Japan (captured by TV on one of the country’s game shows) that “caused him to black out for a few seconds.”
