what do trial biking and the eiffel tower have in common?

The English biton the poster reads:

"A ride down the stairs on a dirt bike
On October 26th [1983], Charles Coutard and Joël Descun drove the first French trial bike down from the second floor of the Tower."

(No time given for the descent, or if there was somebody other than a French rider who'd done it previously.)

Having walked the 668 steps of the East Tower to the second floor, I can only say those guys must have been pretty good...!

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.
