WhistlinDiesel is known for doing really stupid things with cars and trucks. This time, the guys built a 13-foot-tall steel A-frame, then hung a side-by-side ATV by its rear wheel hubs and tried to use it as a swing… we emphasize TRIED. At least they got to do this before they wrecked the RZR.

Now that Colin Furze built himself a new lawnmower, he wanted a swing set he didn’t have to move every time he cut the grass.

“I get motion sickness, I don’t particularly like heights, and I don’t like going upside down.” Regardless of his feelings, madman inventor Colin Furze built himself an insane swing that lets him flip all the way up and over to a height of more than 31 feet.
