Video: Terrified fish hides as a gang of sharks hunt right on top of it

This clip from Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s 2012 film Planet Ocean shows a parrotfish pulling one of the oldest tricks in the book to get away from sharks: it hides right next to coral while staying impossibly still as the sharks just swim right by it, over it and next to it while completely missing it. It’s the silly scene… » 4/24/15 11:19am Friday 11:19am

Massive volcano erupts in Chile creating enormous volcanic ash cloud

This is terrifying. Chile’s Calbuco volcano erupted recently in an intimidatingly massive explosion that created a giant volcanic ash cloud. Actually, giant doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Dash cam reveals the human bouncing that happens inside a car crash

Thankfully, it's okay to laugh a little at this scary footage of a man bouncing around inside his car while a SUV rear ends him into an oncoming semi truck. That's because Daryl Peterson, the driver in the car, managed to walk away from the crash without a scratch or any injury at all. Thank God for airbags… » 4/14/15 5:48pm 4/14/15 5:48pm

Crazy winds throw window cleaners for a scary swing ride on 91st floor

Dear Lord. Cleaning the windows of skyscrapers is already a scary enough job but cleaning windows of the 91st floor of the 1600-foot tall Shanghai World Financial Center while the wind violently throws around the scaffolding like some unhinged, unbuckled roller coaster swing? That is absolutely pants laundering… » 4/03/15 5:20pm 4/03/15 5:20pm

Chainsaw ice skating looks both fun and insanely dangerous

When I saw this video of Swedish skier Erik Sunnerheim zooming over the ice while carving with a chainsaw two thoughts popped into my mind: At first I though it was super fun and wanted to try it right away but then, all the things that could go wrong started to pile up in my brain taking the shape of a giant nope. » 3/30/15 9:34am 3/30/15 9:34am

Terrifying video shows just how distracted teens can be when they drive

Oh man, this video is absolutely horrifying. Put together by AAA, it shows how distracted teenagers are when they drive. You see drivers take their eyes off the road to text, people ignoring cars while they're on the phone and a lot of them just not paying attention at all. You get to see the side-by-side of what… » 3/26/15 3:14pm 3/26/15 3:14pm

Video: Big shark steals a fish right off a fisherman's line

This man was fishing in Australia when he lured a massive fish in. Or so he thought. Instead, a much bigger fish—a hungry white shark—suddenly emerged from the water to steal his catch right off the line. Far from being scared, the fisherman seems to enjoy the scene—if it was me I would have to ask for a clean pair… » 3/20/15 8:22am 3/20/15 8:22am

Stunning footage of molten lava proves that volcanoes are hell monsters

This is the most terrifying thing I've seen in a long time. Like, monsters are real and the apocalypse is nigh terrifying. And yet I can't look away because the footage of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano is so stunning that I can smell my fear burning as the molten lava rock starts taking over the Earth. » 3/18/15 1:22pm 3/18/15 1:22pm

Seeing these people do yoga on a cliff's edge didn't relax me at all

Yoga is supposed to bring peace and spiritual balance and relaxation so obviously it makes complete sense to do it on top of cliffs and on the edge of cliffs and on really thin but really tall rocks, right? The people doing this extreme yoga look completely at ease throughout this stunt but I totally got nervous and… » 3/12/15 6:03pm 3/12/15 6:03pm

Rally drivers escape from flooding car in claustrophobic video 

Driver Ott Tanak and his co-pilot Raigo Molder crashed on a river during the Mexico leg of the FIA World Rally Championship. Fortunately, they could escape before the water flooded the car completely. This insane video, shot from a camera place in the back seat, depicts pretty graphically one of my worst nightmares. » 3/12/15 9:22am 3/12/15 9:22am

Repairing high voltage lines is one of the scariest jobs I've ever seen

This excerpt from Straight Up: Helicopters in Action—a documentary released on IMAX theaters a few years ago—shows the dangerous daily routine of the guys in charge of fixing the high voltage lines. One of the workers say that even if you're afraid of heights or electricity you can still do this job—I seriously… » 3/10/15 10:29am 3/10/15 10:29am

This is what happens when an airbag deploys a hundredth of a second late

Here's a terrifying video that shows the importance of having an airbag that works as it's supposed to versus having an airbag that works... but is a hundredth of a second late. You see one watermelon drop in slow motion and get cradled by the deployment of an airbag versus another watermelon that explodes. » 3/10/15 5:14am 3/10/15 5:14am

Seeing an avalanche form right before your eyes is absolutely terrifying

The ground just starts cracking right in front of the snowboarder. I mean, what do you even do when the ground fractures and the snow murmurs and life glitches like that? What do you do when you have two seconds to realize you're screwed and to come up with a plan to unscrew yourself? You can't do anything, really. » 2/05/15 10:00pm 2/05/15 10:00pm
