This is a video of Instagram user its.PilotJohn performing a nosedive to allegedly wake up his female passenger with a little weightlessness. It’s true, I’ve found nothing wakes you up in a hurry quite like thinking you’re about to die. Was she actually asleep though? That’s debatable. A debate you
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

This is a video of two men ice fishing when one leaves (presumably for more liquor he doesn’t need), but forgets to detach the fishing tent from the snowmobile first, dragging the tent and his buddy inside along with him. Eventually his buddy jumps out the bottom because this is
The future: it’s almost here. Sure Back To The Future II totally lied to us and I’m still bitter about it, but enough about the angry letters I write to Robert Zemeckis, this is a sizzle reel for the Jetson ONE all-electric personal flying vehicle filmed at a golf course.
