If your job involves doing something cool out of a helicopter, I'd say you're probably a bad ass. In the Stevens Pass area of Washington, there can be some issues with avalanches and the best way to handle them is to use explosives. The easiest way to do this? Fly up in a helicopter, light some fuses, and drop a 50 pound charge on to the mountain. Check out the vid:
I know they said that fuse has plenty of time, but it seems crazy that these guys are lighting the fuse and then sitting on it for a bit before chucking it out of the side of the chopper. Pretty cool gig, and it was amazing to see those trees get plucked off the side of the mountain like toothpicks.
