This beach infested with sharks on the sand is the most terrifying thing

Well, I know where my nightmare exists in real life: Cape Lookout National Seashore off the coast of North Carolina.

Insane 73-foot canyon backflip is not the craziest thing in this video

Jeff Herbertson's backflip over a 73-foot canyon at Red Bull Rampage 2014 is pretty insane. But, somehow, it seems easier and less terrifying than the beginning of his run, which made me grab my chair's arms. No matter how may of these videos I see, I would never get use to them. » 10/07/14 12:42am 10/07/14 12:42am

I'll admit it: I ducked. The combination of the zipping sounds with the light shining in and out twisted my senses all out of whack.
