Cyclist Easily Lands Scariest Jump At 1,000 Feet

It's a familiar location for daredevils, but 26-year-old Eirik Ulltang's jump qualifies as one of the most challenging. After two years of preparation, Eirik jumped across the peaks of Svolvaergeita in Norway on his bike. His team says this is the first time anyone has jumped with a bike on this mountain and we're not surprised. Eirik is a trial cyclist and had to climb 1,000 feet up the mountain with his bike on his back. Then, Eirik had to wait at the top until he was fully prepared to make the jump. View Now

Alligator Trainer Exits Lesson With One Less Thumb

Alligator Trainer Exits Lesson With One Less Thumb

Even the most friendly and calm animals like dogs, horses and cows can snap if they're poked, prodded or in this case, sat on enough. We assume the same goes for alligators! It was just another normal day at Pike National Forest in Colorado when animal handler David Fox demonstrates a routine alligator restraining hold to a wannabe trainer. Everything works well as long as the gator isn't actively resisting, of course! Tragically, that panic switch is somehow flipped and David's thumb doesn't make it out intact! View Now
