Winds going over 70mph rush past a scrapped Boeing 747 airplane at a boneyard in Mojave, California. It’s a basic lesson of aerodynamics. It’s a bittersweet metaphor. It’s a viral video.
Citizens of Belarus: stay away from Mikoltsy. On May 14 unholy swarms of mosquitoes descended upon the poor village. The insects were so loud that they drowned out the sounds of vehicles.
Tricking is a sport that combines flips, kicks and twists. Think of it as gymnastics minus the leotards, plus a bit of capoeira. Watch Brandon MCcuien to get a better idea of the sport.

Infinity List and Betty Wants In take to the skies once more, with their latest short film, showcasing the talents of some the the world’s top skydivers, base jumpers and wingsuit athletes.
Not another racing game, but a group of wingsuit base jumpers into proximity flying – skimming close to the ground at speeds over 100mph. Awesome footage by cameraman Ludo Woerth.
You have to hand it to YouTuber 87mcmahan87 for having the cojones to go riding his dirt bike on these skinny, snow-covered ridges. It might not be as high up as it looks, but we still couldn’t do it.
Norweigan Espen Fadnes – 2010’s fastest flying man – reached a speed of 155mph in this wingsuit flight. The sound that he makes as he zooms down the mountain will give you goosebumps. Incredible.
The title could use some work, but other than that this documentary by Sebastien Montaz-Rosset seems like a winner. It’s about the Skyliners, thrill seekers who practice highlining and BASE jumping.

Mountain biker Evan van der Spuy takes a ride through the wilds of South Africa, when out of nowhere pops a Red Hartebeest, ramming into him at top speed. (Thanks, Everyone!)
We struggle to even stand upright on one of those metal little scooters, so when we saw Ryan Williams pulling off these insane scooter moves, our jaws pretty much dropped to the floor.
Buckle up for a crazy-fast ride down a mountain road, on the most unconventional of high-speed vehicles – the tricycle. Bet your Big Wheel never went 55 mph. Nice Flintstones-style brakes there.

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk pulled off a 900º aerial spin not once, but twice. This kid can “only” pull off a 720º, but considering he’s only 8 – eight! – he deserves to be called Tiny Hawk.
Last time we checked in with Betty Wants In, and the Melbourne Skydive Centre they were jumping out of planes. This time, they’re defying gravity in new ways, capturing it all in awe-inspiring slow-mo.
Hey wakeboarders – check out the moves in this clip. Look carefully, and you’ll notice their feet aren’t attached to the board like they usually are, so it really is like skateboarding on water.
Is this waiter extremely skilled, or is he just really lazy? Are there no serving trays in this restaurant? Are his co-workers ever tempted to trip the guy? We have so many questions.
The practice session of ManxGP rider Brian Purdy ended badly when his bike exploded. The guy behind him with the mounted camera must be the Energizer bunny – he just kept going and going.
