This fool keeps risking his life jumping into water from terrifyingly tall buildings

Daredevil Video

You may not have heard of 8Booth, but you've likely seen some of his exploits floating around the web in recent months. You see, 8Booth has a pretty bad and dangerous habit of jumping into varied bodies of water from heights that would make even the most seasoned of roller coaster riders squeamish. While some call him a daredevil and others are quick to claim that he must have a death-wish, what's not up for debate is that 8Booth's videos are positively insane.

This crazy helmet-cam video of a wingsuit flier is the coolest thing you’ll see today

Daredevil Wingsuit
Daredevil Graham Dickinson has a flair for the dramatic. Last we saw, Dicksinson stared death in the face when he jumped offf of a cliff in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc and reached speeds of 111 MPH as he barely grazed by trees, rocks and any number of objects that would have undoubtedly killed him upon impact. Well, Dickinson a few days ago uploaded new helmet-cam footage of that harrowing jump and, as you might expect, it needs to be seen to be believed. The video would feel right at home in a Hollywood action movie, and is all the more impressive because there's no special effects wizardry or camera tricks in play. On the contrary, it's just a man equipped with nothing more than a wingsuit, a video camera and pure adrenaline.

This 125-Foot ‘Leap of Faith’ Stunt Is Completely Bonkers

With the Assassin’s Creed film quickly approaching, the one stunt all fans of the video game series knew couldn’t be avoided was The Leap of Faith. It’s a move where the main character—Altaïr, Ezio, Connor, etc.—jumps off of church steeples into bales of hay with physics-defying splendor you can only find in video games. But what happens when you need to pull off that trick for real?

Crazy Airplane Flies In and Out and Through a Wind Farm

Crazy Airplane Flies In and Out and Through a Wind Farm

You know those basketball or soccer dribbling drills where you snake through a line of cones, dribbling in and out one way on a cone and then slithering through the opposite side of the next cone? That’s what pilot Hannes Arch is doing in this airplane at a wind farm in Tauern Wind Park in Oberzeiring, Austria. The airplane just flies through the wind turbines over and over again like it’s a video game and not real life.

Woman in Wingsuit Flies Through a Gap Between Two Buildings

Woman in Wingsuit Flies Through a Gap Between Two Buildings

Here’s a fun video of Roberta Mancino flying in a wing suit as she splits two buildings in Panama City, Panama. It’s cool to see her quickly adjust her flight path to avoid one of the buildings and to see her reaction as she does it too.

Watch the truly extreme stunts and tricks that this helicopter does

Watch the truly extreme stunts and tricks that this helicopter does

The opening sequence of the latest James Bond movie Spectre involves explosions, a chase scene, a well tailored suit and a fight scene inside a totally insane helicopter ride. This behind the scenes footage shows how batshit some of those tricks and maneuvers were. The helicopter purposely dives itself into a group of people on the ground, almost crashes into them, and then soars up at the very last second for added dramatic effect. I would have fainted if I was there.

Watching this guy climb the Eiffel Tower made me lose feeling in my fingers

Watching this guy climb the Eiffel Tower made me lose feeling in my fingers

Ostensibly, the Eiffel Tower seems like a decent structure to climb. There are so many exposed parts that you could hold on to and so many paths to climb up that there’s no real wrong move. But then you realize, as you watch James Kingston scale the tower, that it’s actually a terrifying climb because every piece is so thin and the safe spaces are weirdly angled and that all that exposurein the tower actually makes you completely exposed. It’s frightening.

This totally crazy wingsuit video made me stop breathing

Okay, which guy is crazier. Graham Dickinson, the guy we see in the video below who’s so impossibly close the ground and the trees and the mountain face and basically inches away from crashing the entire time during this wingsuit video. Or the camera man, Dario, who is seeing all the ridiculous things Dickinson is doing and still has to keep track of him and react fast enough to capture the footage.

Must watch: Longboarder dodges oncoming traffic and races down an open highway at 70 MPH

Longboard Highway Stunt

The stunt performed in the video below is pretty crazy. Zak Maytum, a downhill longboard racer from Colorado, recently decided it'd be a cool idea to hop on his longboard and fly down a Boulder highway at about 70 miles per hour. And oh yes, did we mention that the highway has a speed limit of 30 miles per hour?

The video really does a great job of conveying how fast Maytum is going. And in case you need any proof, if you keep an eye out for when Maytum crouches down and puts his gloves to the pavement, you'll literally see sparks flying. Clearly, he's flying down the street like a speed demon.

These guys doing crazy tricks on a slackline follow different rules of gravity

I don’t know what planet these guys are from but it’s certainly not Earth because they don’t follow the very simple laws of gravity and break the concept of balance and destroy the very idea of time. They can jump on and off a slackline like it’s nothing and even do ridiculous tricks normal people couldn’t pull off if they could fly.
