Gee Atherton is a world-champion mountain biker — one of the best in the whole world. Those skills came in handy as he tackled one of his biggest challenges yet: a slate quarry. Slate rocks are notoriously loose, sharp, and unforgiving to even walk across. So you can imagine the skill you would need to navigate your way across an entire slate quarry at high speeds on a mountain bike.

If you're unfamiliar with the term "overlanding," just know that it is essentially SUPER camping. You're relying on only yourself for food and supplies as you travel. One of the best places to go overlanding is in Savuti, Botswana. That's just what James Hendry is doing, and lucky for us, he's documenting the entire experience. Just imagine traveling around Africa and being among some of the spectacular wildlife...it really makes us jealous! View Now

Cicadas are hard to root for. When they awake from hibernation, they are notoriously loud and annoying. Still, that doesn't make the footage we've seen from Kruger National Park any easier to watch. A scorpion can be seen in the night vision footage sneaking up on an unsuspecting cicada and captures the bug after a couple of attempts. It is, quite frankly, horrifying to watch if you hate bugs.

Abod Abdeen got a great deal on his airplane seat! It cost him nothing, he had nobody sitting next to him, and the whole trip was pretty quick. There was just one downside — the plane was on the bottom of the ocean. Don't worry! It didn't crash or anything like that. As part of an effort to create a new coral reef, the airplane was intentionally sunk underwater. So instead of an annoying child kicking the back of your seat, you may get an angry octopus. View Now

They don't call it "speed skating" because competitors leisurely tip-toe around the ice. No, the whole point of speed skating is to push skaters to their limits. Red Bull and Olympic Speed Skating Champion Kjeld Nuis wanted to see how fast it was physically possible to ice skate. To do this, they got the help of racecar driver Mikaela Ahlin-Kottulinsky and attached a shield to the vehicle to protect Nuis from wind flow. When all was said and done, Nuis went an astonishing 57 mph on the ice! View Now

Unsurprisingly, he ends up sinking the snowmobile. But surprisingly, he's able to get it up and running again...eventually!

Cheetahs might be the fastest land animal, but we think a duck chased by a momma crocodile might be faster.

If there's one thing we know from the movie, "Alien," it's that in space, no one can hear you scream. But it turns out, thanks to NASA and musicians, we can hear the musical sounds of space. NASA scientists used data compiled from the Chandra X-ray Observatory and worked with musician Andrew Santaguida of System Sounds to create music that is literally out of this world. View Now
A tourist boat in Chile got up close and personal with some of the locals. Those locals were a pod of orcas that were swimming close to the tourist boat, giving the people onboard quite the show. One whale even got close enough to splash the passengers like they were at SeaWorld!
Next, we all perceive things differently. For example, when we see a school of fish surrounded by sea lions, we sit back and marvel at nature in action. The school of anchovies see a real-life monster movie happening right before their eyes. And the sea lions see fast food. View Now

Up in Ontario, Canada, summer is still a ways away — but not for the ML Crew! The innovative bunch is making a few adjustments to their waterskis so that they can glide on both the water and the ice of a partially frozen lake.
