This is a video captured by the residents of a 21st story apartment in San Francisco, who witnessed their sofa fly off the balcony and attempt a half-hearted trip to Oz during high winds. Unfortunately for it, it only makes it as far as the road below. Fortunately for locals,

Note: Check your volume, wind. Because extreme sports just aren’t extreme enough for some people and they demand even EXTREMER sports, these are a couple Instagram videos of BASE jumper David Laffargue being launched out of a human slingshot and into the wild blue yonder. That’s fun. I mean not
These are several videos of a sugar glider named Titan Bool leaping from heights to glide and land on his owner’s hand. For those of you unfamiliar, sugar gliders are small gliding marsupials native to Australia, and can glide like flying squirrels (which are rodents and not related, but an
