We live in a world filled with adrenaline junkies. Whether they are climbing to horrific height or chasing tornados, there are people out there doing the things that would make us pray and cry for our lives. These images are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to people looking for their next big stunt or amazing photograph.
This Russian photographer will do just about anything to capture the most amazing selfies. This photo is just one of many that she has taken that will make you queasy just thinking about what she had to do in order to get the perfect shot.
Yoga can be hard enough, especially if you do not have the best balance. Could you even imagine doing any yoga pose off the corner of a building this high off the ground? The thought makes me nauseous.
This crazy parachuter from Austria is pictured here on the arm of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. I could not even imagine taking a jump from almost 750 meters in the air. This guy definitely has balls.
Just Hanging Around
No, this is not a scene from the new Lion King movie. This guy is literally just hanging off the side of a building for the fun of it. Thank goodness for his incredible strength and spotter nearby, otherwise, this could go very wrong.
If I were a model, you still could not pay me enough to trust some guy to hold me while I hang off the edge of a 73 story high building. Okdintcova has more balls than most people I know.
This guy has to be a serious bad ass to climb to the top of this bridge. Not only is this act likely very illegal, it is also very dangerous. One strong gust of wind would be all it takes to send him flying down to his death.
This student from Russia got his first good camera and decided he wanted to take photos from enormous heights. Like many other Russian daredevils, he has taken to climbing homes and tall buildings in order to catch the breathtaking views from these dangerous heights.
This guy is brave but totally nuts. Things start to get intense around the 2:30 mark in the video. It is hard to believe that his trek would even be possible on foot let along by bike. I bit my nails through most of this video.
This would be a big nope for me. I would have a hard enough time standing on that edge using my own two feet let along being on a unicycle. To say that this guy is crazy and brave would be a serious understatement.
Brad was a very experienced rock climber who actually fell to his death while climbing Cathedral Peak then running to climb along Matthes Crest. According to the Daily Mail, witnesses saw him fall from the crest that is about 500 feet high. It just goes to show you that even the most experienced daredevils can die or become seriously injured performing stunts like these.
