Here is all the dialogue in this video of pro skier Ian McIntosh falling 1,600 feet down the face of a mountain in the Alaskan Neacola range:

"Three, two, one. Go, go, go!" 
"Whoah! No!"
"I'm OK. I'm OK."

There are a bunch of "oofs" and other grunting noises in the middle, but you get the point—this could have been really bad. Said Todd Jones of (the appropriately named) Teton Gravity Research, which produced this video and other extreme sports films, this "was the most terrifying crash I've ever seen." Apparently, soon after beginning his descent, McIntosh encountered a five-foot deep crevasse that he couldn't see until he was on top of it,  "From there, my slough took over and there was no way to stop. I pulled my airbag to help prevent against any possible trauma injuries as I tumbled to the bottom." Hold on to your lunch, and your sympathetic pain responses, because this is a solid minute of gravity winning ruthlessly:
