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.

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
The water in the Soca River of Slovenia is beautiful but it can also be dangerous. A kayaker was enjoying a ride when he hit a rock and was sucked down into a siphon. After an intense struggle, he was able to break free of his kayak and emerge to the surface of the river. View Now
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've always thought Darts are a pretty extreme game. To land a single bullseye you need muscle control, hand-eye coordination and a little pinch of fairy dust. Most of the time it's just "try not to hit the wall"! View Now
Where Darrick Thomson is, KhamLha his elephant big sister can't be far behind!
This odd but heartwarming friendship, first shared by ElephantNews, started when Darrick began volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand and met the infant elephant. From that time forward, the two were INSEPARABLE! KhamLha's now a teenager (in elephant years), but she still coddles and leads Darrick around like momma elephants usually parent their youngsters.

They say to really understand someone, you need to a walk a mile in their shoes.
Dutch luxury lingerie company PrimaDonna put their own spin on this principle when they created International E-Cup Day. Now, one day every year, every male employee from stockman to CEO straps an E-Cup
on their chest to understand the daily discomfort the main demographic--women--live with daily.
Let's just say the AHA!-moments are pretty darn enlightening and entertaining.
Check twice next time you pick up that stray dollar or you might star in PrankFiles' next hilarious video!
Turns out people will put up with a lot for a dollar because every unwary shopper takes the juicy bait. The reactions are PRICELESS as the victims spy the realistic-looking critter springing out of the shadows. We love the horrifying moment when they realize the joke's not yet over!
Let's be honest, the only time we appreciate traffic lights is when we see green. Thanks to a groundbreaking top-to-bottom redesign of traffic systems in the Dutch town of 's-Hertogenbosch, it might be ALL you see. Using complex algorithms and weight sensors on every street, traffic signals can now track literally every vehicle on the road and adjust to accommodate the EXACT flows of traffic. View Now
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!
When learning a new sport you are bound to experience some fails. A hang glider was trying to use a cart for a tow but it didn't go so well so he cut the tow line. He lifted into the air and then crashed into the grass below.
Till Schmitz shared this compilation of the fails from her attempt to master kitesurfing. What is really admirable is that she keeps trying and doesn't give up. View Now
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.
Racing video games like the Need For Speed franchise or even those Fast and the Furious arcade games oversimplify just how HARD it is to race cars and pull off those awesome burnouts, drifts and powerslides in real life.
This first video is probably how most of us would drive if you put us in an insanely powerful car and told us to drag race. Let's be honest, we WISH we had the mad precision drifting/parking skills of this second talented driver!
We've seen countless unique and memorable engagement moments here at RightThisMinute... but for some reason, there's a trite formula to weddings that people always follow.
Keith and Bethany really went ALL OUT when they broke the mold. This stunning run-and-gun wedding on the Staten Island Ferry and NYC Subway is heartwarming and romantic in a way the park wedding idea could never be. Plus, we agree it's TOTALLY them! View Now

The Bridgey Crew aren't here to sightsee or enjoy the fantastic view from this hot air balloon.
That's touristy stuff.
They've got something MUCH more epic and unexpected in mind. Wingsuited up, they're ready to jump OUT of the balloon as soon as they reach 8,000 feet. Don't worry, they've got a parachute tucked away for when they've got their daily free-falling fix! View Now
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!
Adrenaline junkies will get a kick out of this video. Nick Coulter gathered a group of cliff jumpers for this extreme stunt. They placed a crane on a cliff 80-feet high in Lake Tahoe, California. You've got to see these daredevils jumping from the crane into the water below. View Now
If deep-sea dives have taught us anything, it's that some ocean creatures are pretty dang weird.
Case in point: this bit of seaweed that is NOT a bit of seaweed! We think that underneath all this organic disguise is a small Decorator Crab. If you have an idea, please this us know?
Although our creature got away, these spider crab cousins make a tasty brunch for this hungry octopus. View Now
What wouldn't you do for a pair of ridiculously discounted designer shoes?
We've always found it hilarious how immediately after a day of Thanksgiving for everything we have, people rush to stores to push, shove, and even FIGHT for stuff they don't have. Turns out the spirit of Black Friday is alive and well in this crazy brawl inside a Peruvian shoe store.
In the second video, we suspect the spirit of alcohol was more likely to blame for these dozen or so guys in England slugging it out in the middle of a busy intersection. View Now

Call it the Sixth Sense, call it Intuition, but we heard alarm bells ringing in these two painful-looking motorcycle collisions caught on camera LONG before either driver did.
Our first rider appears to be correctly doing everything you learn in a textbook, but the Dad in our second video could have stopped this nasty father-and-son motorcycle reunion if he had simply gone with the flow of traffic. View Now
