Our moms always told us to never run with scissors. Maybe this Russian barber with nerves of steel found a loophole when he takes a client out on a bungee jump for the riskiest haircut we've ever seen. What could go wrong when you pair an extreme stunt with a sharp straight razor?
Love you, mom!
Crocodiles and their alligator cousins are never to be taken lightly. We always hope people give these big lizards their space and take extra care. That said, it's a good thing our friend Coyote Peterson and the Brave Wilderness crew are pros at dealing with wild animals because they're waking the dragon (AKA hibernating American Crocodile) in the name of science.
That giant mama crocodile just wasn't having it! We can't really blame her for being grumpy, though.
We all know that couple who jokes their kids are eating them out of house and home... but for this small family, it's a medical reality! View Now
The closest thing to an actual whirlpool most of us have been in is the one in our shower drain or when we're cheering on Captain Jack during that that epic maelstrom scene in "Pirates of The Carribean". But after watching Sean Rist's harrowing escape from a whirlpool's dangerous currents while kayaking, we're in no hurry to meet one.
If you're born to hang you won't drown... er, fall from the sky.
Long story short, it wasn't lucky Scott Freemantle's last day on the earth when he attempted an ill-advised skydiving stunt at a startlingly low altitude (850 feet and only seconds above the ground). Until the final seconds of the video, it seems poor tangled Scott will have a premature rendezvous with the earth.

Target fixation is an archer or sharpshooter's best friend... but it's a total nightmare for drivers and motorcyclists because this absolute panicked focus will send you straight into the stopped car or debris you want to avoid.
For Dylan and his poor bike, their date with destiny was a scary cliff he just... couldn't... ignore.
We all know catchy sayings like "Leaves Of Three, Let Them Be" that warn us away from Poison Ivy and other hazards but we should really come up with something about sketchy ATMs with wobbly parts.
We call dibs on "If It's Loose, Vamoose!"
Even though he probably didn't have such a cool limerick in mind, Eli Maguire's Aussie skepticism saved him an embarrassing credit card statement and perhaps quite a load of money during this ATM visit.
Aussie police in Merrylands didn't have to look far for trouble. It arrived at their station house in force in the form of a distraught elderly man behind the wheel of a tiny car filled with propane tanks. Police noticed this explosive combo and were able to rescue the man.
This Russian driver was spared a rescue when he narrowly escaped a good crushing beneath a poorly-timed falling tree.
Here at RightThisMinute we've got pretty awesome perks—generous vacations, as many munchies as you can eat, friendly coworkers and a casual atmosphere. But we'd be lying if we said we weren't a little jealous of this epic Canadian social innovation and impact agency with a literal beehive on the roof.
We're talking on-tap honey! View Now
Tell your surfing friends the best "waves" are two miles up in the clouds over Florida. Red Bull stuntman Sean MacCormac will back you up. View Now
When life throws its worst at us, we hope the people we trust and love most will be there to support and encourage us. In this ridiculous accident where a Russian woman gets stuck in a hollow tree, her laughing and Snapchatting friends might have enjoyed her bizarre situation a little too much, we think.
And then Mr. Lumberjack shows up and scares the living daylights out of us when he attempts a risky rescue of this good-natured damsel in distress.
The need for speed and flight is in the blood of any pilot. Heck, we've already got a patron superhero for these guys—Iron Man!
The truth is, you're settling for second-best to any plane because XDubai has developed a working jetwing that'll leave you carving up the clouds in jaw-dropping stunts with the likes of jetmen Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet. View Now
For the amount of time this dilapidated car keeps the police pursuit at bay, we assumed there's some super spy behind the wheel. Nope! Turns out it is just four party boys who're pretty determined to stay out of a Russian slammer. The real credit goes to the hardy Little Lada That Could car hat kept together for this insane marathon police chase.
A Florida man is hospitalized after being shot in North Miami. Police were called on Monday night after receiving reports about a man carrying a gun and threatening to shoot himself. Charles Kinsey, a behavioral therapist, was in the area and searching for an autistic patient who escaped from a nearby group home. View Now
We've seen those guys dancing while their cars "ghost" driverless down the road for years. it's risky, dangerous, and unfortunately, makes REALLY entertaining videos.
This Darwin Award nominee outshines every other ghostrider on the planet when he takes this dangerous stunt out onto this Swiss lake. How? He shoves the throttle down on his ridiculously expensive boat and jumps over the side to joyfully WAKEBOARD. He captures the entire thrill ride grinning ear-to-ear on a selfie stick before he safely re-boards. View Now
Most sensible campers run away SCREAMING from a surprise bear encounter. In Mother Russia, you simply spoon-feed it porridge and berries until he's friendly!
Turns out Stepan is a trained animal actor and has basically the same relationship with this family most have with a dog—snuggling and back-scratching included! This bizarre twist makes this family sound even more awesome and also a little bit crazy to keep a full-grown teddy bear (albeit trained) this close to children.
We can't spy into the mind of a criminal when they do the things they do but we can definitely wonder what the HECK they were thinking!
Up first, the arsonist in the UK takes the time to snap a photo of the doomed minivan before he does the dirty deed. Suddenly, he's looking more like a hitman connected to a string of recent arson attacks.
The sterile latex gloves gave this second criminal away when he threatens an Aussie shop owner with her own pen. We're just wondering why he didn't think ahead and bring an actual weapon.
Only. In. Russia.
We assumed that by now, after all the INSANE videos coming out of their country, Russians would be totally prepared for bizarre accidents on the road, like this wedding guest who was having a little TOO much fun without his seatbelt on. Like the kids say, it's all fun and games until your car flips on you.
But because it's Russia, this guy also survives!
Just when scientists start to think they understand the planet, bizarre, unexplainable events "pop up" to humble them... sometimes literally! These "bubbles" on the Siberian tundra are formed when melting permafrost releases massive amounts of CO2 and methane. Scientists are alarmed because, as its name leads us to believe, permafrost NEVER normally melts.
We're treated to an unusual "twist" on a common sight when a swirling dust devil hits a field of freshly cut hay in the UK. View Now
Scotty Cranmer & Co. never fail to deliver on their awesome sports hijinks. Their latest video combines the massively growing genre of basketball trick-shots with pulse-pounding BMX bike stunts. The trio quickly hit the sweet spot and soon Scotty, Dylan and Big Boy are dunking, head-butting and alley-ooping basketballs midair.
Nothing. But. Net.
We don't know how these guys get up again after their bodies take this battering. Proof, I guess, that we humans are a pretty hardy species.
I's whispered our first indestructible man might have attempted this dramatic fall ON PURPOSE to jump-start his daredevil career in the Kazakhstani city of Almaty. On the contrary, this Ukrainian superman could've skipped this completely avoidable Terminator flashback if he'd just paid the darn bus fare!
This storied Alaskan rafting guide has only ever lost a SINGLE rafter overboard. Whatever rapid they just went over in the Nenana River must have been insane because count the bobbing heads--there's SEVEN people in the water. The most our freezing and battered friends can do is try to avoid all those dangerous rocks shooting towards them before they're finally rescued by the two rafters who managed to stay afloat.
Things could've been worse... at least there wasn't a BEAR swimming beside them, which is exactly what happens in the second video.
Except on insurance claims, being "right" means little on the road. Even the best drivers can find themselves in horrible accidents because OTHER drivers are careless. Find yourself behind motorcycle handlebars and even driving around town can become a life-or-death crisis. Try it without the proper safety gear and you're flirting with fate.
Case in point, these two harrowing crashes that could've ended much worse had not every rider been wearing helmets and riding gear. View Now
Given the massive size of the French Alps, most would opt for a speedy mountain bike or take it slow and steady as hikers. Heck, why not both?
The best of both worlds is the little-known but epic sport of trail running. This French runner from Morzine Mountain Running already has us on board because he makes it look so effortless. You start low in the comforting and pastoral scenes of Morzine-Avoriaz but your run will soon take you to the peaks--where you're practically on the top of the world!
We've all had times we just HAD to go out and celebrate! Maybe it was getting lit on your 21st or finishing school. For Isaac Moore in the UK, his adventure starts with an awesome new job!
Six pints of alcohol, a ridiculous climb and about 12 hours later, he wakes on the top of the Cambridge Grand Arcade's 75-feet-high class ceiling in the middle of HIS OWN rescue. This is news to Isaac because he doesn't remember a thing!
We just hope his employers weren't watching!
This is probably how Pokémon Go would look like IRL.
We've all had those soul-crushing moments when we spend dozens of Pokéballs on that one exotic creature just to see it vanish!This mega-pride of South African lions were having a bad day, too, when they let this 10CP Porcupine escape under a tourist's safari van in Kruger National Park. View Now
There are few attacks more brutish and heartless than the one targeted at this poor elderly couple as they rode home in a taxi after a pleasant evening at the theatre. Months later, Birmingham South police have FINALLY arrested the group of five teens that allegedly threw the bricks that left the 70-year-old woman with a fractured skull.
We think the hilarious karma of this second video almost makes up for the belated justice in the first video. View Now
