Daredevil Almost Misses The Water From 40 Metres Up

Video: I’m totally safe and sitting in front of a computer screen, and yet I’m sweating because watching this guy pull his crazy jumps from buildings is just not OK. This one is especially brutal because I really didn’t expect him to end up where he landed. He starts on the roof of the building 40m in the air and ends up safely down in the harbour — but I thought he was gunning for that soft middle landing of water between the dock and not, like, on the freaking other side.

Watch A Guy Lose A Shoe While Parachuting But Then Somehow Get It Back Mid-Air

Video: I think it’s safe to assume that if you lose something while flying in the air on a parachute, you probably shouldn’t expect to ever get it back. Especially while you’re still in the freaking air. But watch as this canopy pilot loses his shoe on a jump and somehow retrieves it in mid-air.

Crazy Guy Releases 285 Snakes Into The Wild At The Same Time

Video: Yeah, he just did that. This fearless snake whisperer released 285 snakes back into the wild by dumping out a bag full of them and then rubbing the snakes on the ground to make them all slither away. It’s so gross looking because they just start shooting off in every direction, and absolutely frightening because it’s, like, the scariest nightmare happening in real life.

Truly Savage Thief Chops Down Tree To Steal A Bike

Video: This dude is crazy and awful and screwed up but also bold and daring and a freaking total savage. Armed with a handsaw and a sociopathic personality, he literally chopped down a tree in order to steal a bike. A tree no longer exists because this guy saw a bike locked up to it and thought it’d be easy money to get. Some poor sap is now without their bike because this mad man thought sawing through a tree trunk was easier than breaking a bike lock.

Seeing A 20,000 Watt Light Bulb Light Up Is Totally Blinding

Video: I don’t know what 1000 suns actually looks like in real life, but I would imagine it’s probably something like lighting up this 20,000 watt light bulb to full, world-scorching power. It’s that eyeball-burning and -blindingly bright. Photonicinduction tested this 20kW Halogen light bulb that’s used for large scale film sets indoors — where it can flood out an entire room in white light — and outdoors — where it can pretty much turn night into day. I’m not even joking.

This Spinning Illusion Is Obviously Some Sort Of Light Magic

Video: I don’t know how these tiny dancers got trapped inside this spinning zoetrope but it’s the only explanation I can come up with for this incredible light animation. Their movements are so smooth, and the shining light captures the grace of their dance so well that I’m sure some sort of magic has to be at play here.

Totally Savage Driver Uses Smoke Screen And Throws Spikes At The Police During Car Chase

Video: Ripped straight from the wild scenes of a car chase in a spy movie that’s way too unrealistic, this most baddest of arses used a shield of smoke and threw spikes at the police car that was chasing him.

Walking A Record-Breaking One Kilometre On A Slackline Over Mountains Is Truly Crazy

Video: When you smash the previous world record of walking on a highline of 500m — by doubling it over, walking on the slackline for 1km, you are truly fearless. When you do it in the sweeping mountains of Aiglun, France and walk as if you’re not afraid to fall, extreme can’t even begin to describe you. That’s Danny Menisk and Nathan Paulin. Watch as they both pull off the incredible feat of slacklining for over a kilometre in the video below.

What It's Like To Walk Against 100 MPH Winds

Video: Going up against winds over 161km/h? You’re going to lose. Watch as weather observers Mike Dorfman and Tom Padham from the Mount Washington Observatory goof off on the observation deck off the mountain in New Hampshire to show us what it’s like to stand, walk, and jump against 175km/h winds. The wind is so strong it pretty much acts like an invisible physical barrier.

Watch A Carnivorous Plant Wrap Itself Around A Bug And Entomb It

Video: Meet the Drosera Capensis, also known as the Cape sundew. It’s a deadly little thing that looks like some sort of alien finger trap, but it’s actually a carnivorous plant with sticky tentacles that basically entomb bugs that come across its way. It’s incredible to see how it traps the bug as if it were hugging it to paralyse it, and then folding vertically to trap it forever.
