Amazing footage of slackliners who attempted to cross a line strung between two floating hot air balloons. While none of them quite made it all the way, at least they all had parachutes – or umbrellas. Skip to 2:00 for the stunt.

Man Eats Cacti

Man Eats Cacti

That’s right, not one, but two cactus plants. Egged on by the stupidity of fellow YouTubers Children of Poseidon and La Fenix, L.A. Beast munched on the spiked plant. They seem less lethal than the world’s hottest pepper.

Eating the World’s Hottest Pepper

Eating the World’s Hottest Pepper

Beehive Line Wingsuit Flight POV

“Just a bunch a dudes, tryin’ to be birds.” So goes the understatement of the year from Robert “Scotty-Bob” Morgan about this death-defying wingsuit flight through a narrow gap in a canyon in Utah. Sir, no bird is as insane as you are.

College of Central Florida’s 6’7″ Javonte Douglas jams in an insane putback dunk. His neck went above the freakin’ rim. Looks like the players below him accidentally gave him a boost, but he couldn’t have planned that.
