Besides the fact that it's wet, dirty and gets everywhere, most of us would stay away from DIY beach parking lots because of a little weather pattern called "tides". A forgotten parking brake was actually to blame for this odd ocean Mercedes rescue on the Black Sea "Russian Riviera", but we're sure its driver was still face-palming all the same when he realized his car would never be the same.

Thankfully, thousands of other Russian tourists also share this Krasnodar Krai resort beach and came to this nearly-drowned car's aid.

Sharing Grapes In The Grossest Possible Way & People-Sized Problem For Horse

So many ideas seem less hot in retrospect. Take this bizarre grape trickshot relay, for example! The idea everyone agrees on is "let's projectile-shoot a grape around for Twitter", but the end result looks a lot more like a group of guys swapping spit back-and-forth. We kind of guessed the conclusion to this bruising horseback riding attempt when we saw the panicked look in that horse's eyes. What makes it worse is that the poor would-be-cowboy is barefoot when he gets bucked off! View Now

Even when you've got an airplane between you and the "Wild Blue Yonder", the brute strength and force of nature is enough to toss you around! But in extreme open-air sports like paragliding and hang gliding, it's just you and your understanding of weather versus temperamental Mother Nature.

A Little Help, Please? & No Workout's Too Extreme For Horse-Man

A Little Help, Please? & No Workout's Too Extreme For Horse-Man

We think horses would make great candidates for the "Man's Best Friend" award (no offense to dogs)! Though we make equine friends more for sports and companionship than to get around town anymore, this amateur Norwegian horse-jumper-in-training probably has a new appreciation for her tiny mount after Frimann sensitively helps Helena out of an awkward fall. Jon Call doesn't technically count as a horse... but we're giving the species a couple extra points anyway for just looking so awesome and dominating this extreme workout! via Storyful View Now
