Awesome Dangerous

Flaming Jenga

Flaming Jenga

To show off their Giant Jenga set, Vat19 lit the wooden blocks on fire, then played a game that was only possible thanks to the fire retardant goo on their hands. And here we thought playing Jenga with construction equipment was the most dangerous way to play.

Magnetic Darts

Magnetic Darts

Magnetic Games shows off a cool, but dangerous setup that uses small nail-like projectiles that have been charged with the same magnetic polarity as their launcher, resulting in “darts” that launch solely under the power of magnetism. Don’t try this at home.

Thermite Kettle

Thermite Kettle

We’ve seen thermite obliterate pumpkins and roast a turkey, so using it to boil water seems a bit pedestrian by the Internet’s standards. But using it without wearing safety equipment is another story altogether. Or just another day for Colin Furze.

The Shotgun Nailgun

The Shotgun Nailgun

YouTuber MattV2099 glued nails into shotgun shells, then fired them at close range using a Arsenal SGL41 Saiga 410 – a Russian AK-style shotgun. It’s not a practical way to nail things together, but it’s certainly one of the most dangerous ideas we’ve ever seen.

Killer Tentacle Bot

Killer Tentacle Bot

While most Arduino-powered gadgets are either useful (or useless), this one is just deadly. YouTuber outaspaceman rigged up a servo-driven tentacle that does just one thing – it wildly thrashes around while wielding a knife.

Boom Balloons

Boom Balloons

The King of Random is back with another fun, yet dangerous video, as he fills party balloons with extremely flammable, lighter-than-air HHO gas, lights them with a fuse, and sends them airborne. Suffice it to say, this is not FAA approved.

How to Open Five Beers at Once

How to Open Five Beers at Once

There are numerous ways to open a bottle, but using a chainsaw isn’t one that we recommend. That didn’t stop this guy from opening not just one, but five bottles of beer using the dangerous power tool.

Man on an Edge

Man on an Edge

The New York Times introduces us to Brent Weingard, a professional window cleaner who’s been hanging precariously from the sides of buildings for more than 35 years. And yes, he does worry about dropping stuff on us.

Norah the Jet Bike

Norah the Jet Bike

Colin Furze is known for making amped-up, but horribly dangerous vehicles. His latest creation? A bicycle with a ridiculous, fire-spewing jet propulsion system. Go figure his biggest problem was the tires.

Ninja Firefighter

Ninja Firefighter

This young woman was dangerously close to killing herself by jumping off of the balcony of a 12-story building. Fortunately her plans were spoiled by a sneaky fireman and his life-saving attack.

Fire Tornado

Fire Tornado

By using a bunch of box fans and a tub filled with fire, this video demonstrates how you can easily create a beautiful and deadly-looking whirlpool of fire in your own backyard.

Yosemite Slackline Walk

Yosemite Slackline Walk

Mich Kemeter takes a brief 99 foot-long stroll through Yosemite National Park. Oh, did we happen to mention he did it 3,000 feet in the air, and without a safety harness?

Cold Steel Throwing Shovel

Cold Steel Throwing Shovel

If you ever find yourself face-to-face with an horde of zombies without a shotgun, the Cold Steel Throwing Shovel is your weapon of choice. Modeled after an actual Soviet special forces weapon.

Just Another Day at Work

Just Another Day at Work

You don’t just need strength and speed to be a firefighter. You also need a lion’s heart and a giant’s balls. The firefighter holding the hose has both. He’s probably seen worse, but still.

Train Diving

Train Diving

It’s not enough that this guy is surfing on the back of a moving train car. He pushes the legal limits on stupidity by taking a flying leap from the railcar into the drink below. Do not try this at home.

Slingshot with Rifle Scope

Slingshot with Rifle Scope

Jörg Sprave shows off his new creations. The big star here is his strongest, most accurate and thus most lethal slingshot crossbow yet, with 22mm thick rubber tubes and an assault rifle scope.

The Avalaunche

The Avalaunche

Like the Gatling Slingshot Crossbow, Jörg Sprave’s Avalaunche uses 20mm steel balls, but it can fire up to six of them at once. We can’t wait for the 6-shooter version of the machete slingshot.

Gatling Slingshot Crossbow

Gatling Slingshot Crossbow

From the creator of the machete slingshot comes the equally dangerous Gatling slingshot crossbow. It fires 20mm steel balls, and has a firing rate of 960 rounds per minute – faster than an M16 rifle.

Machete Slingshot

Machete Slingshot

Everything about this device looks like an accident waiting to happen. Still, when Jörg Sprave was challenged by his fans to make a slingshot that fires a machete, he couldn’t resist the challenge.

Liquid Nitrogen + Hand

Liquid Nitrogen + Hand

Despite the fact that you’re never supposed to stick any part of your body into liquid nitrogen, PopSci’s Theodore Grey figured out a way to quickly dunk his hand without injury. Don’t try this at home.
