In Retrospect... These Were Pretty Bad Ideas

In Retrospect... These Were Pretty Bad Ideas

Even though time is money, sometimes you lose a lot more money if your "time-efficient" plan turns into an expensive mistake. Take this Russian freighter overloaded with thousands of tons of massive pipes on the rough seas. A couple heavy waves and these flimsy wire restraints pop like they were string! Now, a fortune in concrete pipes is sitting at the bottom of the arctic! View Now

Intense Body Cam Footage Shows Heroic Officer Saving Man Trapped In Burning Car

Off-Roading Fails Make Riders Thankful For Helmets

Off-roading can be dangerous, even if you think you're prepared. These two friends went on a dirt road when one friend started to roll down the path. He rolled near the ATV and luckily avoided being crushed. Meantime, it seems like bikes without motors aren't much safer. This guy went across a wooden bridge on his mountain bike but completely tumbled over the landing area. Good thing he was wearing his helmet because a huge piece was missing from the helmet afterward. View Now

If the earth was "alive" in a human sense, we really hope she's a pacifist. These insane videos from show exactly what would happen to people who get on the wrong side of Mother Nature. It's terrifying! A Chinese couple is talking business at the side of their van when suddenly, they're both swallowed by the massive "mouth" opening at their feet!

These Absent-Minded Folks Are Flirting With Death

They say when you survive a near-death experience, your entire life flashes before your eyes like an inspiring "Rocky" training montage. These survivors of deadly mishaps were probably deep in thought about the Summer Games or thinking of that dinner steak when suddenly, vivid childhood memories came flooding back. It's only then that you realize they're sprawled on the tracks staring down an incoming train or stuck between a falling construction crane and a bone-crunching landing in the valley far below.

Brace Yourselves For These Zip-lines Gone Wild

Brace Yourselves For These Zip-lines Gone Wild

Add zip-lines to your list of phobias, because these high-speed devil contraptions have done more to hurt people than all the sharks, spiders and snakes in the world combined! First, they lure you in with their breathtaking views, dizzying heights, and epic speeds, and then they hurl you into whoever's unfortunate enough to be on the other side. If you're lucky enough to have experienced zip-line guides on the other end, you'll just get the wind knocked out of you as you slam on the brakes. Or, you'll be this next kid and make a rather painful DIY landing. View Now

Gravity Brings Paragliding Tour To A Crashing Stop

Even though you're assured many times over that you'll be flying with the best of the best with the latest in safety equipment and protection, have you ever noticed that most extreme sport touring companies still require a mountain of signed waivers?

You'll Have To See These Crazy Accidents To Believe Them

Nobody prepares for accidents as bizarre as these. If so, we'd suspect this camera crew would've set up a couple dozen yards back! This adrenaline-pumping racing start at the British Touring Car Championships looks like something out of "Mario Kart" where you're bumping into your friends for that coveted #1 spot... until a camera guy high in his perch gets caught in the crossfire.

This Wannabe Lumberjack Should've Gotten A Second Opinion

You might have seen the #askadad trending hashtag this Father's Day after news broke that the internet is growing into the top forum for question-asking instead of using our parents. But let's be honest, this wannabe lumberjack probably would've had better luck and escaped some awkward insurance claims had he brought in someone with a little more experience (AKA dad) to this DIY tree-felling fail.

Don't Blame The Cars... Their Drivers Are Pretty Bad

Don't Blame The Cars... Their Drivers Are Pretty Bad

Most of the epic crash videos we get at RightThisMinute are scenarios straight from a defensive driving textbook. For example, because you're supposed to slow down during rain, we assume the same applies to a narrow mountain road. Our Aussie van takes these turns like he's on a freeway and takes a nasty tumble down this 45-degree cliff! View Now

When A Need For Speed Leads To Disaster

We all know that motorcycles can be dangerous, so it's always important to wear a helmet and gear when you hit the open road. Thankfully, these riders were prepared for the worst. In this first crash, you can see a couple of bikes out on a nice ride, when suddenly one crashes during a turn. If you watch the video, you can see that there is a significant crack in the pavement but a simple rock also could be the cause of this accident. The bike was damaged, but the driver only suffered minor road burns. View Now

Guilty Driver Leads Police On Unnecessary Cross-Country Chase

If you're going to attempt an epic "Grand Theft Auto"-inspired escape from police, we at least hope you've done something horrible, else you'll land yourself in a lot more hot water!. Leave it up to this panicked 20-something Lithuanian to overreact when police try to pass his BMW on a country road. Assuming they're out to get him (he didn't properly register or insure his car) he speeds away in a cloud of dust and the chase is on! Facepalm. View Now
Racers Meet Their Match On The Road

Racers Meet Their Match On The Road

Next time you're in a fender-bender, remember even professional racers sometimes mess up! We can't help but notice the epic style with which these guys fail, though. What better way to end a track run at the Finnish World Rally Championship than to flip your Ford Fiesta on its roof and casually slide down the track like Saudi driver Yazeed Al-Rajhi? He walks away from his car but we can't say the same about this poor Australian cattle-guard gate that's much worse for the wear after an unexpected rendezvous with a racing buggy. View Now
