Watching this guy in a wingsuit fly impossibly close to the ground almost made me faint

This wingsuit video is unbelievable. And totally wild. And so daring it seems impossible and unreal and yet, Brandon Mikesell really did put on a wingsuit and zipped a crazy flight down Le Brévent and filmed it all for us to see. He wades through rocks and cliffs and trees and oh yeah, deftly avoided the ground that I… »Today 1:45pm12/01/15 1:45pm


Watch a lightning bolt strike a car (Updated)

Boom. I remember hearing that being inside a car when it gets struck by lightning is a pretty safe place to be (as long as you don’t touch anything). Something about the bolt dissipating into the ground (the rubber tires thing is a myth). I’m not so sure about that now because the force of nature striking down on this… »11/20/15 11:40am11/20/15 11:40am

Watch a giant pile of leaves blow up in a crazy line explosion

You shouldn’t do this. Burning up dried leaves is dangerous and not exactly great for your health and also pollutes the air. So yeah, don’t try this at home. Instead, just watch this video of a guy lighting a huge line of dry leaves doused in gasoline on fire and watch it instantly create this totally crazy fire line.… »11/19/15 3:45pm11/19/15 3:45pm

True bad ass walks a record breaking 1640 feet across a slackline at unbelievable heights

I gasped. And then cursed. And then just shook my head throughout this entire video. Théo Sanson set a new record by walking 1,640 feet across a slackline in the Utah desert. He crossed between The Rectory and Castleton Tower at Castle Valley, Utah and is so impossibly high off the ground that it’s absolutely… »11/18/15 11:00pm11/18/15 11:00pm

Cooking thermite on a stove burns the entire oven in an endless fire

Burning food on a stove top sucks. Burning thermite on a stove top? It totally epic because flames shoot up ridiculously high and burn ridiculously bright and is just totally ridiculous in general. I mean, it burns right through the saucepan, makes a hole through the stove top and then fire drips right into the oven. »11/17/15 1:48am11/17/15 1:48am

Watching how airplanes used to aerial refuel is totally incredible

The history of aerial refueling is pure nuts. Back on November 12, 1921, the first airplane to airplane refueling happened and it required a guy, Wesley May, strapping a 5-gallon can of gasoline on his back and walking on the wing of one airplane and hopping over to the wing of the other airplane to refuel. That’s… »11/12/15 6:26pm11/12/15 6:26pm

Skier miraculously survives a 1,600 foot fall off the side of a mountain

The slope is impossibly steep and the snow looks fresh and it looks like the craziest line a skier can run through but one misstep and things can go real bad, real fast. That’s what happened to skier Ian McIntosh, who fell into a trench on one of his turns and then plummeted 1,600 feet in a free fall against the snowy… »11/12/15 3:20pm11/12/15 3:20pm

Watching this guy climb the Eiffel Tower made me lose feeling in my fingers

Ostensibly, the Eiffel Tower seems like a decent structure to climb. There are so many exposed parts that you could hold on to and so many paths to climb up that there’s no real wrong move. But then you realize, as you watch James Kingston scale the tower, that it’s actually a terrifying climb because every piece is… »11/09/15 10:30pm11/09/15 10:30pm

Watch two guys in jet packs fly right next to a super jumbo jet

Awesome. Just awesome. The craziest human, Jetman Yves Rossy, and his protege, Jetman Vince Reffet, did one of the coolest stunts imaginable: they flew in jet packs right next to an Airbus A380 on top of the Dubai skyline. Imagine looking out the airplane window and seeing a guy flying by. »11/08/15 2:30pm11/08/15 2:30pm

Spectacular meteor explosion lights up the night sky in a perfect alien blue

Dash cam footage of meteors aren’t particularly special anymore because the Internet has pretty much ruined everything. But this one that was taken in Bangkok the other day is pretty spectacular. The night sky gets completely lit up in that perfect hue of blue that we associate with aliens and then fades away as the… »11/03/15 1:45am11/03/15 1:45am

Blowing up a pool with firecrackers is definitely the awesomest thing

Have an outdoor pool that you don’t want to drain? Need to get rid of the portable pool but don’t want to do any work? There’s a much better and infinitely more fun alternative solution: blow that mother up with firecrackers. It creates an explosion that looks like a mini atom bomb and spreads the water everywhere. »10/27/15 8:20pm10/27/15 8:20pm

The world's first triple front flip bike trick is plain nuts

Backflips, I get. You launch in the air, you tilt backwards, and you flip. Front flips are a whole other story. You launch in the air, you tilt forward (which is downward but you’re still going up), and then you flip? Crazy talk. And this triple front flip from Ryan Williams? Definitely more than three times the… »10/13/15 8:44pm10/13/15 8:44pm

Watch a butcher use a bandsaw to cut chickens at ridiculous speeds

You can spend an entire lifetime learning how to do something and I’m pretty sure you still won’t be as good as or as confident as this butcher chopping down chickens with a bandsaw. He moves at such incredible speeds and comes so close to the blade multiple times without hesitating that I’m fairly certain he’s had… »10/08/15 4:20pm10/08/15 4:20pm

China has some of the most insane traffic jams on this planet

Hell. Pain. Agony. Anger. Madness. To the point where you just start punching your steering wheel and try to rip off your car’s roof and scream until your forehead and neck veins burst and then cry like a crazy person. That’s what it must feel like going through this insane traffic jam just outside of Beijing, China.… »10/07/15 3:40pm10/07/15 3:40pm

Seeing these guys climb the spires of a 1,094 foot tall skyscraper makes my arms melt

Palms sweaty. Arms losing power. Joints seem to be disappearing. I feel nervous and sick and stressed out and I’m just watching this video. I can’t even imagine what I’d begin to feel like if I was actually the guys climbing the spires of the 1,094 foot tall Shimao International Plaza skyscraper in Japan. Actually I… »10/05/15 10:00pm10/05/15 10:00pm

This totally crazy wingsuit video made me stop breathing

Okay, which guy is crazier. Graham Dickinson, the guy we see in the video below who’s so impossibly close the ground and the trees and the mountain face and basically inches away from crashing the entire time during this wingsuit video. Or the camera man, Dario, who is seeing all the ridiculous things Dickinson is… »9/26/15 12:00pm9/26/15 12:00pm

Riding a bike on a slackline high up in the mountains is psycho madness

It’s already hard enough to just go mountain biking where there are no trails. It’s already hard enough to just walk on a slackline suspended in the air. So naturally, it makes perfect sense to go mountain biking on a slackline. Wait. What? That’s what Kenny Belaey did. He rode his bike on a slackline over a 367-foot… »9/18/15 8:20pm9/18/15 8:20pm

Watch the scary power of a microwave oven make plasma and burn things

Yowza. Here’s a crazy rigged contraption that uses microwave energy from cavity magnetron to generate plasma and burn the heck out of things faster than you can warm a Hot Pocket. We can see it squeeze out plasma in a lightbulb, shatter glass and make basically anything burn. It’s a neat exercise to show how powerful… »9/14/15 8:45pm9/14/15 8:45pm
