- Acrobat set to tightrope walk Niagara Falls
- I thought Nik Wallenda would be the first person to attempt to walk on a tightrope across Niagara Falls but I was wrong. It was The Great Blondin in 1859 who was the first to successfully cross, followed by eight more people (including one woman) after him.
Good luck to Nik Wallenda today and may no peregrine falcons swoop him.
