Qn:

The land diving of Pentecost Island, is an ancient ritual in which young men jump from tall wooden platforms with vines tied to their ankles as a test of their courage and passage into manhood. This is said to have inspired the modern sport of Bungee-jumping, but unlike in modern bungee-jumping, land-divers intentionally hit the ground, but the vines absorb sufficient force to make the impact non-lethal.
