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…
Tom Cruise is crazy. And not crazy in the jump on couches and shoot lightning bolts crazy but legitimately a crazy person because he has the boulders to do his own stunts. And not just stunts like playing hopscotch in a pond but stunts that get crazier and crazier with each Mission Impossible movie. Rock climbing,…
This video of a crazy guy running and jumping and doing that parkour thing across a building ledge only lasts 15 seconds but I’m pretty sure I’ve thrown up 15 times, cried enough tears for 15 years, broke my knees in 15 different places from trembling too hard and destroyed my ability to process emotion for the rest…
Wingsuit flyer Patrick Kerber didn't seem to be daunted by the idea of jumping from the top of a mountain to a dark void—only slightly illuminated by a red flare he holds in his hand—to take a picture. It's true that the resulting photo is stunning but also one of the craziest and most dangerous stunts I've ever seen.
This insane video shows a Russian guy shooting a pistol at his friend's head to test the quality of the K6-3—a titanium helmet with bullet-proof glass used by Russian special forces. Some commenters think this may be fake. Many think it's real. What do you think?
I know the Soviets made tons of crazy stuff back in the 20th century, but this is beyond insane: They blasted an entire forest and the adjacent land with the help of nuclear explosions to carve a canal. Atomic terraforming makes so much sense, doesn't it?
Watch this spectacular video of speedrider David Bozon skiing near the edge of a cliff in Charmonix, France, and then taking a leap off to ride the avalanche he just provoked.
Holy cow. I don't know how professional skier Cody Townsend pulled off this insane ski line that saw him pretty much drop straight down and then through the most narrow of cracks while skiing insanely fast but he did it.
According to the video's description, Youtube user Naswas was playing GTA V when he felt hungry and decided to stop for a few minutes to get food. When he came back this insane traffic jam with cars exploding, police sirens howling, and people shooting was happening.
Train surfing is not new. Videos of crazy Russian kids are not new either. But a video of crazy Russian kids jumping from high speed train to high speed train, risking a deadly fall or electrocution by the 25,000-volt overhead electric lines that power the JSC Russian Railways—that is new. And freaking crazy too.
I don't know if it's the Red Bull he is drinking or what—actually this would make a great viral for any energetic drink—but Eminem is on fire in this freestyle rapping video. The speed and accuracy at which he spits his rhymes is so insane that it's overwhelming. Warning: Explicit lyrics.
Daredevil Arnaud Longobardi shows a crazy array of paragliding tricks in this video shot in Chamonix, in the French Alps. One of those tricks is particularly insane: He flies so close to a moving cable car that he could perfectly give a handshake to one of its passengers.
He's going down the mountain road so fast that it looks like he's about to hit warp drive or something. I mean, damn. It seems like one little pebble on the road or one little shift in the wrong direction and he'd be catapulted off the side of the road. But he manages to hang on at ridiculous speeds.
Thankfully, the two drivers of this speedboat are still alive after the crash. And the crash was crazy. The speedboat launched itself into the air like a rocket, flipped end over end and then spun again one more time for good measure before it slammed into the water bow first. Just nuts.
Mad genius Colin Furze is back again with a new invention. This time he built himself a steel safe suit with the sole purpose of standing inside a fireworks display and enjoy the views. The suit shape looks hilarious, a terrifying mix between the tin man and the scarecrow, but it works perfectly.
This is the largest urban zip-line ride in the world—and it must be the most insane too. Watch these guys zip down a 10,000-foot line placed on top of a 700-foot building in Panama City. Then—half way through it and as if this weren't scary enough on its own—they let go and dive with their parachutes. Madness.
Just when I thought nobody could get crazier than these Ukrainians, here come two Russians doing high risk stunts perched on some sort of electrical or radio tower without any safety measures whatsoever. Not only they put their lives on the line, but they insist on increasing the chances of a major failure.
This is just bananas. Coconuts. Hot Dogs. I don't know. Just watch this guy, who I assume is either insane, has the biggest brass ones ever or lost a cruel bet, zoom down the narrowest of a mountain cliff on his mountain bike at super fast speeds. Sometimes, I don't even see any trails or roads when I'm watching the…
Another thing that I didn't know was a thing. People who like to drop through big waterfalls, like Dane Jackson does in this video on the 60-foot La Tomata waterfall in central Veracruz, Mexico. And there's more, like the 189-foot drop a reader posted below.
The company that used to publish the blockbuster Company of Heroes and Metro franchises imploded in rapid and spectacular fashion in late 2012, getting its assets sold off in early 2013. Some of its holdings, like the WWE and Saints Row games, found homes. But the fate of other members of the former THQ family tree—…
