Strikingly bold or uncommonly brave. Sometimes just plain stupid.

Named after a man named Brody in the early 20th century, who claimed that he would jump off the Brooklyn Bridge. He faked the jump with a dummy of himself and achieved fame until he was found out.

To this day, the term taking a brody means to take a nasty fall from some high place.

I'll update more when I find an actual source.
