This thread is for videos and pictures of activities that are unforgiving. If you make a mistake riding a 70 foot wave or at isle of man going 200mph on your bike...you're going to die.
Inspired by a few videos I've seen recently -
78ft wave ride:
the isle of man tt:
a classic - "grinding the crack:"
Feel free to post up videos and pics of these sort of activities. Lets be honest, who wouldn't enjoy a thread full of death defying stunts and activities?
That "grinding the crack" video was awesome. Talk about an adrenaline rush....

Dan Osman died November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope failed while performing a "controlled free-fall" jump from the Leaning Tower rock formation in Yosemite National Park.
Here's a vid explaining what happened. He was doing free-fall jumps with a rope. He broke the record with a 1000 foot jump (), went back a couple days later to do another one, and the rope snapped. This vid is of the record jump, but not the fatal job.

The stairway to heaven climb video gives me pretty strong vertigo
I can't even comprehend how those towers are built in the first place.
Edit to add:
I've always thought these redbull flying guys were nutty. Mistake could result in death.
how do you embed youtube?
