If you're afraid of heights, falling ranks at the top of your bad dreams. One Russian circus acrobat LIVED this nightmare when the equipment holding him 13 feet in the air malfunctioned during a daring mid-air acrobatic performance.

Most frequently, though, the stomach-churning accident videos we see on RightThisMinute are caused by user error--like this painful BMX jump-fail jewel.

Street Luger Snapchats From Hospital After Bone-Crunching Wipeout

When a fellow luger catches air at top speed and swerves into a hay bale just ahead of Darius, our guy blindly swerves through the thick cloud of debris and wipes out himself trying to avoid a catastrophic high-speed collision. As the hospital Snapchats prove, it looks like good-natured Darius is no worse for the wear! View Now

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.

Ricky Gervais Gives Us The Lowdown On British Slang

Ricky Gervais is (virtually) sitting down with Vanity Fair for a "chin wag." Sure he's pretty busy writing, producing, directing, and starring in his hit show "After Life" on Netflix, but he finds time for the occasional "bevvy." He's a bit "cheesed-off" about having to postpone some gigs, but if he hadn't, things could have turned out "shambolic." Don't know what any of these terms mean? View Now
