A flight emergency landing can't be more chilled out than this

This video shows the emergency descent of Jetblue flight 1416, which happened yesterday, September 18. Seeing those oxygen masks going down as the cabin fills up with smoke—after one of the engines stops!—is the beginning of one of my worst nightmares. Yet, all passengers seem completely calm about it. » 9/19/14 4:43am Friday 4:43am

This video of a crowded intersection makes me hyperventilate

Even though I know that this video was made by the visual effects experts of Black Sheep Films and isn't real, I can't help but feel queasy when I watch it. The rotoscoping is just so well done. I gasp as I see the cyclist cross the road, I churn when the pedestrian decides to run and can't breathe when I see the rest… » 9/16/14 7:40pm 9/16/14 7:40pm

Teens go bananas and take scariest selfie ever atop 1135-foot skyscraper

I've seen many coldblooded daredevils climbing skyscrapers and towers, but this is the first time I've seen someone having a picnic up there—The Centre skyscraper in Hong Kong, 1,135 feet (346 meters) above the ground. I couldn't avoid gasping when photographer Daniel Lau lifted his camera above him and his friends. » 8/25/14 9:01am 8/25/14 9:01am

Amazing video shows hundreds of pelicans diving into a feeding frenzy

Birds are awesome creatures, but seeing huge flocks of them—like these pelicans diving into a feeding frenzy—both amaze and scare the bejesus out of me. Maybe is Hitchcock's fault. Or maybe it's because I know these sons of dinosaurs are really waiting for their opportunity to eat us all one day. » 8/25/14 7:57am 8/25/14 7:57am

Giant goliath fish swallows a shark whole in just one bite

Sometimes the shark plays the role of David. Especially when it goes up against the giant Goliath Grouper who looks more like a swimming Godzilla than a fish. And in real life, David the shark doesn't have a shot against the Goliath fish because the ginormous creature can swallow the 4-foot shark whole in one bite. » 8/20/14 10:35pm 8/20/14 10:35pm

Watch these guys remove the antenna atop the John Hancock Center

These guys are working on the top cap west antenna of the John Hancock Center—a 1,127-foot-high (344 meters) building located in Chicago. I know they are wearing the mandatory security equipment and it's very unlikely that they could fall, but watching them do their job makes my stomach clench. » 8/12/14 7:29am 8/12/14 7:29am

Crazy Ivan climbs atop the frozen crane of the 2073-foot Shanghai Tower

Ivan Kuznetsov doesn't care that the world's highest construction site—atop the 2,073-foot (632-meter) Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building on Earth—is full of ice and it's slippery as hell. His compatriots did it before him without ice, so he had to best them. Here are more of his adventures for you to scream. » 8/08/14 12:52pm 8/08/14 12:52pm

Mad guys ride the largest and most insane urban zip-line in the world

This is the largest urban zip-line ride in the world—and it must be the most insane too. Watch these guys zip down a 10,000-foot line placed on top of a 700-foot building in Panama City. Then—half way through it and as if this weren't scary enough on its own—they let go and dive with their parachutes. Madness. » 8/05/14 12:17pm 8/05/14 12:17pm
