Ukrainian BMX star Vasya Lukyanenko may be some sort of genetic outlier. In the sense that I’m not convinced he experiences certain basic human emotions. Specifically fear. I base this hypothesis on the fact even the most danger-welcoming daredevil would think twice about popping by the Ukrainian National Space Centre in Yevpatoria and biking all willy-nilly up on the satellite dishes. Satellite dishes that are very, super, uber-high up in the air, BTW.
But ol’ Vasya clearly laughs in the face of such things as heights, gravity, and the potential for multiple abrasions, lacerations, and contusions. Hey, man, he’s Ukrainian. Back in the day, these folks got hit with Chernobyl and were all like, “is that all you got?!”
Ukrainians are badasses, is my point.
