It's amazing what nature and wildlife can do! Take this amazing display of color on a bay in south Australia. The bright color is coming from microscopic bioluminescent algae on the ground. When stomped on and as seen in the water, it turns a brilliant blue and a kind of purple that lights up the night!

There's a good reason nobody "bodysurfs" river rapids—you're one bad rock impact away from death! Thankfully, the rafting community's all too aware of their sport's hazards and are your first lifeline should you ever find yourself overboard. When the raft just ahead of Pretty Homeless suddenly tips over, our filmer gets to be one of the lucky few who pulled a soaked (and very grateful) rafter from the roaring Gallatin River.
We often take for granted the things we can do and the places we can go, but not everyone has that luxury. For example, water parks. It's assumed that most visitors can climb up the steps to get to a water slide or even venture in a wave pool, but what about those with disabilities? Theme park Morgan's Wonderland in San Antonio, Texas took the extraordinary step of making its water park accessible to those with disabilities. View Now
We have a pair of videos for you, each about a tale of mankind versus sea creatures! First, a Blue Shark was spotted at a beach in Croatia that's sectioned off for swimmers. So two men decide to chase it off, very slowly, on a jet ski. If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, just exit the water and please leave the sharks alone. View Now
it was a long-raging debate whether kitesurfers were destroying the calm Spanish beach vibes of Redondela, but we think these heroic rescues cleared up the confusion. When a strong beach current sweeps away an unlucky mom and her even unluckier rescuers, all who're left are Cristobal, Paty and Ivan—three buddies practicing their kitesurfing. With no lifeguards in sight, they improvise a daring rescue that'll leave you speechless.
No matter what our friend the Crazy Russin Hacker shows you in the video, follow his advice and DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME! Watch this from the comfort of your couch instead. He shows us how a 5-pound gummy bear combined with sodium metal and water can be an explosive combination. We recommend eating the gummy bear instead, it's way less dangerous. View Now
It's no secret that extreme sports come with risks, but it's easy enough to assume you'll never be "that guy" on the news. Unfortunately, Brazilian daredevil Leonardo Lean Gomes' luck ran out when a sudden gust of wind blew him off Pedra Bonita peak with only a partially-open paraglider as buddy Lorran Pablo records the incident.

Out in the wilderness and out of cups? Well, The Crazy Russian Hacker has what could be a life-saving tip. He shows you how, with some tin foil and a gas burner, you can boil water to use for whatever you might need. It's quick, easy, and just might come in handy one day. View Now
Jet Boats are probably some of the world's most underrated watercraft. Think about it—in what other boats can you "pond hop" like PNW Jet Boats, Jeremiah Meggison and SnowPro00? They even take the party onto land without destroying the hull!
This unexpected crash in France is enough to make any aviation buff cry. Especially considering the upside-down, wrecked plane looks like a vintage WWII Supermarine Spitfire! With only 35 known flyable Spitfires left (as of 2012), it's a shame this war relic met its end so anticlimactically. On the bright side, the pilot escapes unhurt. View Now
Swimming is fun and all, but would you submit yourself to these crazy swimming pools? Their beauty and stunning views make it totally worth it. Architectural Digest breaks down the six most daring swimming pools around the world, from Singapore to Hong Kong.
White water rafting can be dangerous, even for the most prepared among us. While test riding the Creature Craft that Darren Vancil designed himself, things got real rough, real fast. The craft is tossed around and Darren was badly injured. However, because of the safety system built into the craft, he survived the ordeal and will make a full recovery. There is a GoFundMe page up right now if you wish to help Darren with his medical expenses while he recovers. View Now
Apparently catching fish with watermelon is a thing, and this video takes it to the next level! Pastor Kevin Coward in Deridder, Louisiana demonstrates how to catch a catfish barehanded by using the fruit as bait. We're beyond impressed! View Now
You've got to see this unbelievable stunt at the water park. A man was coming down the water slide when he suddenly seemed to glide across the surface of the water. He managed to land perfectly and climb right out of the pool onto the deck. Social media has dubbed him the "King of the Water Park."
If you ever ever thought about frying water (we're not sure why this would cross anyone's mind), just know that it is possible. Rob at Threadbanger tests it out for us, and it's actually a little more complicated than you would think. He adds oil to the fryer and mixes water with sodium alginate. After blending it, he takes another bowl and mixes water with Calcium lactate. Watch the video to see more of the process and the finally fried water prodcut! View Now
This cockroach-craving bird got itself in quite a sticky situation when it tried to raid Taylor Ratliff's glue trap. The poor unfortunate bird has lost its dignity and most of its feathers, but we're glad to see she otherwise looks okay as Taylor gently pries her free! View Now
A trip to the beach wouldn't be complete without a glance at the lifeguard as told by the moms in this Awestruck video. They take their kiddos, beach chairs and googly eyes onto the sand for a relaxing day of "baewatching." Things really start to heat up when MyLifeSuckers requests some assistance to apply sunscreen in this Banana Boat advertisement. When the lifeguard is some serious eye candy, you really can't blame them! View Now
Taras Kul (AKA the Crazy Russian Hacker) is as mystified as us when a fan sends him a paper camping pot in the mail with a challenge: make water boil. Though you'd assume the pot would burn up the minute you set it over a fire, thanks to the heat-absorption properties of water it miraculously survives!
Mind = blown.
You'd have to travel to Asia to find wild Burmese Pythons 50 years ago. Fast-forward to today, however, and these giant snake predators are ripping apart Florida's delicate Everglades ecosystem as they compete for resources and reproduce exponentially. With a name "Nick TheWrangler," it looks like this adventurous YouTuber's in the right place! View Now
We can't believe we're saying this, but the JOOGSQUAD crew has actually outdone themselves in their latest crazy beach stunt. Theoretically, their bungie slip 'n slide ramp is powerful enough to safely launch a daredevil out to sea. Of course, they've never tested it until now, but what's the worst that could happen?
A lot, actually!
