Paragliding is a fairly common stunt at soccer matches across the world, but like any stunt, these things can go wrong. This Ecuadorian soccer match is one example. The paragliders were supposed to land on the sidelines, but unfortunately something went wrong and the glider was blown right into the teams as they were practicing...
Warning: this video of a man scaling buildings and running from rooftop to rooftop in Cambridge, England is not for the faint of heart or stomach. The film was shot with a helmet cam, and gives a first person P.O.V. of what it would be like to run from building to building...
If only we had spent more time mastering parkour and less time playing 'Assassin's Creed,' we would be able to go outside and play 'Assassin's Creed' for real (minus the killing and weird secret societies and stuff) like this guy. Instead we'll just watch him do it. And then play more video games.
BASE jumper Gary Connery of England has become the first man to skydive and land safely (this was required to claim the record) without deploying a parachute. How did he manage to pull that off? Well, the professional stuntman glided himself into a pile of cardboard boxes. 18,600 of them.
Regular old skydiving just not thrilling enough? Then consider this extreme jump made by Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner from 13 miles up just at the edge of space. Last Friday, Baumgartner dove off a high-altitude helium balloon at a height of 71,851 feet, becoming only the third person in history to do so.
There's no better way to see a city than on foot, especially when you have the kind of feet that can propel you from one city rooftop to another in a single bound. Watch as these young and talented parkour enthusiasts kick their skateboards to the curb and take to the city of Cambridge, England like a band of amateur acrobats.
Damien Walters is an incredible athlete, free runner and overall stuntman. If there's one thing he's not, it's fearful. Just watch how he'll backflip off a tall building without any hesitation, or make a clean leap over a moving car. (Just in case you don't realize this after watching the video, none of his stunts should be tried at home.)
