Just go to YouTube and type in "across the world trade center towers" and there is the video.

This guy is just nuts...most people NOW wouldn't even bother doing a thing like this. But then again, there aren't many tightrope walkers.

I think French fries are already being phased out. A restaurant I went to recently literally had a choice between French fries and American fries.

It should be clear from the title that those dirty Frenchmen are up to no good again, tight-rope walking our tallest buildings and exposing themselves.

The dirty animals... I think this calls for an embargo on French bread, and pastries!

You got it!

It's in black and white and the guy casually does tricks between the WTCs. Something about a crossbow... he gets arrested and the cop is very impressed by his performance, regardless of the fact he is handcuffed to a chair right in front of him.

Also, the meaning to life is at the end.

Assuming you could still do this today, the punishment would be a little more than a free show for kids. I would guess deportation to a hidden jail with a side of torture.
