Seventy-metre Biscuit Dunk – level 3

08-06-2021 15:00

A thrill-seeking 24-year-old tea lover named Simon Barry took dunking biscuits to a whole new level.

While holding a chocolate biscuit, he jumped off a 70-metre crane. When the bungee rope reached its full extension, he dunked the biscuit in a cup of tea.

The feat was an exercise in extreme precision and dedication, and if you think that the video was too thrilling to watch, you may want a nice cup of tea to settle your nerves.

Difficult words: dunk (put something into a drink or soup before eating it), feat (a great achievement), precision (measurement and calculation), dedication (a commitment, enthusiasm).
