St. Patrick's Day Splash: Darren Taylor dives into 30 cm of water for Guinness World Record

(CBS) - We continue to honor St. Patrick's Day with a video that is a display of insanity or manliness depending on your perspective. Darren Taylor, otherwise known as "Professor Splash", broke his own Guinness World Record recently by diving into just 30 cm of water from a high dive. The dive happens at about 1:15 into the video.

To add to how amazing the feat is, Guinness World Record rules do not allow for the inflatable pool to actually be inflated.  The BBC has additional footage and their own take about the record-breaking feat here.

Impressed? Yes, I am! And you will be, too, when you see it (and may feel a bit emasculated in doing so).
