Going Down a Ladder Off the Side of a 900-foot Tower Is Scarier Than Climbing Up

Don’t look down. That’s the only advice that kind of works when you’re up high on a 920-foot tall structure. But what if you’re descending down a ladder on the side of said 920-foot tall structure? You have to look down. But what if that ladder was swaying backwards because it’s very flimsily attached to the side of…

Skier Somehow Survives a Terrifying 1,000-foot Tumble Down a Mountain

I don’t know how this is possible (but I am very thankful it is) but immediately after skiier Angel Collinson tumbled 1,000 feet down the side of an Alaskan mountain, she sat up and told everyone that she was going to walk back up the mountain to get her stuff. I mean, how bad ass is that. After being put in the…

Jumping Off the World's Largest Hammock Hung Over a Canyon Is Totally Nuts

A hammock is supposed to be the most relaxing thing that this world has to offer. It is the picture of carefree contentment. This giant hammock hung over a canyon though?

Almost Getting Smashed By a Swinging Wrecking Ball to Prove a Law of Physics Is Crazy

Our favorite physicist Andrea Wahl is back with his wild experiments where he blends real life physics with Jackass-style self torture. This time he uses a swinging wrecking ball to prove how conservation of energy can neither be created or destroyed, it transforms into other forms. Basically, as dangerous as being in…

Video Shows How a Bullet Fired Underwater Doesn't Shoot That Far

No one should ever have to face the other end of a gun barrel but if you manage to find yourself in such a situation, let’s all hope that it’s underwater. Here’s our favorite physicist Andreas Wahl proving how the velocity of a bullet slows down like crazy when it’s fired underwater with a lovely visual experiment.…

A Minigun Made with Roman Candles Looks Like an Alien Space Weapon

Here’s how to win the war with the aliens, for when they come (and they will come). Strap every human with these Roman candle firework miniguns and then start lighting up the entire sky with these fiery bright rockets at the same damn time.

Climbing the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Brazil is Totally Crazy

Here’s a crazy way to celebrate Christmas: go to Brazil and climb up the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and check out the crazy view of the city and its beaches on the shoulder of Jesus Christ. Don’t mind the fact that the statue’s shoulder slopes down and that there’s nothing to hold on to though!

Watching a Truck Towing a Boat Drive Over a Flimsy Wooden Bridge Is So Stressful

I don’t know if these wooden planks can be considered a bridge or if they just constitute a poorly made death trap but I know that I wouldn’t even want to walk on the thing. And yet, this guy drives a truck that’s towing a boat over it! Nervousness alone would make me crash it right into the water below, destroying…

Red Hot Nickel Ball Burning Tinsel Releases This Thick Poisonous Looking Death Gas

It’s flame retardant tinsel (which has absolutely no chance of standing up to the mighty red hot nickel ball), which probably explains why the smoke it releases looks so damn toxic. I mean, the smoke is so thick that it looks like it’s a yellow green gray sludge and not actually smoke. Inhaling one puff of that smog’s…

Daredevil Skis Through an Impossibly Narrow Gap in the Mountains

When you first see where skier Aymar Navarro is trying to go, it doesn’t quite register in your brain. Like, no, it couldn’t be there. And then you look at the inevitability of his ski line at Cerro Torrecillas in the Andes and you’re like holy crap, he’s really going for it. It’s like he’s skiing into a funnel, that…
