Oh, you wanted to be the first to base jump from the top of the new tallest building in the world ? Too late. Nasir Al Niyadi and Omar Al Hegelan took the 2,700 foot plunge  from the top of the Burj Khalifa. In doing so, they set a record for the world's highest base jump from a building in what seems like a completely Burj-endorsed jump. Aren't these things supposed to be more fun when they're illegal?
You can see the whole nail-biting decent  at the Guardian.
