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…

Watch the truly extreme stunts and tricks that this helicopter does

The opening sequence of the latest James Bond movie Spectre involves explosions, a chase scene, a well tailored suit and a fight scene inside a totally insane helicopter ride. This behind the scenes footage shows how batshit some of those tricks and maneuvers were. The helicopter purposely dives itself into a group of…

Wild wingsuit video shows a guy flying through a narrow canyon

Here’s a really fun wingsuit video that reminds you why you’ll never actually strap on a wingsuit and fly in your entire life: two guys make a jump and fly a line through a completely narrow canyon in Switzerland. It’s like pod racing through the canyons of Tatooine in Star Wars except even more dangerous because the…

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…

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…

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…

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…

These guys doing crazy tricks on a slackline follow different rules of gravity

I don’t know what planet these guys are from but it’s certainly not Earth because they don’t follow the very simple laws of gravity and break the concept of balance and destroy the very idea of time. They can jump on and off a slackline like it’s nothing and even do ridiculous tricks normal people couldn’t pull off if…

Daredevil kid rides a train while on top of the roof of the train

Taking the train is my favorite form of transportation because unlike a car, I don’t have to drive or get stuck in traffic and unlike an airplane, I don’t have to go through security and be crammed in impossibly tiny spaces. But I only like it when I’m inside the train. This kid, who’s completely nuts and probably has…

A helicopter closely chases a race car in this truly insane stunt

You see the word insane get thrown around on the Internet a lot. It’s a good word! But few things actually deserve the word insane. This stunt does though. Felix Baumgartner (the dude who jumped from space) pilots a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter that is basically having a movie car chase scene with a race car and…

7 things you maybe didn't know about the Mission Impossible movies

I’m not an especially big Tom Cruise fan but even I have to admit, the Mission Impossible movies are guaranteed to be a fun time. The powers behind that film franchise have pretty much mastered the art of spy action movie making and know exactly what we want: cool spy stuff, crazy stunts that put Tom Cruise in danger,…
