What does your bucket list look like? Maybe you want to freefall from 14,000 feet while skydiving.

Maybe you have plans to break the law in Hawaii by hiking through restricted mountains. If that’s not enough, maybe you want to unlawfully use a reservoir as a water slide.

One thing that’s probably not on your list is this completely insane urban zipline. In a recent video shot by Devin Super Tramp, we’re given a good look at the world’s biggest urban zipline. It’s just as insane as it sounds!

The craziest part? The daredevil participants never made it to the other side. Instead, they unclipped themselves from the zipline contraption and pretty much skydived from that point on. With the help of their trusty parachutes, they were able to navigate back down to earth.

Check out the video above for a closer look!

Airplane Passenger Captures Breathtaking Rainbow Photo From Above

Canadian resident Melissa Rensen, 51, snapped a photo out of an airplane window when traveling to Honduras. Everyone takes pictures of clouds while flying, so what’s the big deal?

Wasabi Toothpaste Is A Thing In Japan, But It Shouldn’t Be (Photo)

Toothpaste has pretty much tasted the same for years now. Of course, brands like Crest and Colgate have tried to shake the market up a bit with cinnamon and bubble gum-flavored toothpastes, but, over time, those became pretty basic, too. That’s why Japan is stepping in to create wasabi toothpaste. According to Time, Japanese retailer Village Vanguard […]

The All-In-One Beer And Weed Bong Will Be Sure To F*ck You Up

We’ve seen it all. We’ve seen THC-infused chocolates, THC-infused pizza and even THC-infused grilled cheese sandwiches. What we haven’t seen, until now, is this insane all-in-one “beer shotgun, gravity pipe and water pipe” device brilliantly named The Knockout. It’s everything you could wish for in a drinking and smoking device. If you’re one of those fearless […]

5 Reasons To Give ABC’s ‘Black-ish’ A Chance

For the better part of this year, I’ve been impatiently looking forward to many new shows on ABC, especially “Black-ish.” The show is a Kenya-Barris-created sitcom about a black family in suburban America, figuring out its cultural identity. “Black-ish” premiered last Wednesday night, and it was everything I hoped it would be. It was fun, […]

6 Life Hacks We Should All Take From Kim Jong-un

North Korea’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, made his first public appearance in 40 days at a housing district after a heavily reported absence. Pundits have suggested everything from coups and counter-coups, to a double ankle-fracture via high heels and even breeding unicorns. The fractures seem most likely, considering official photos of the appearance featured Jong-un walking with a […]

It’s Called Chivalry And You Either Have It Or You Don’t

I’m tired of women saying chivalry is dead, and I am even more tired of men saying chivalry is not dead (or it is, but women killed it). Chivalry is neither dead or alive. Chivalry is chivalry; you either have it or you don’t, and a woman’s “eligibility” for it is completely irrelevant. Is it practiced […]
