Some people are just too accomplished for their own good.

Not content merely with skydiving, Chris Walker decided to combine his love of extreme sports with his love of puzzles. The result is this death-defying video in which he solves a Rubik’s Cube in the middle of a free fall.

It takes less than a minute. Then he opens his parachute.

This is so impressive that we’re actually a little disgusted with ourselves right now. Solving a Rubik’s Cube on solid ground is hard enough.
