Sun Xi Zhong Climbs Stairs with Head

Acrobat Sun Xi Zhong stars in a Japanese program in order to break the World Record for most steps traveled using only his head.  This truly is something you must see to believe.  It is extremely hard to simply balance on your head, much less than jumping and climbing steps on your head.  Sun Xi Zhong must keep total control over every body motion as he moves his way up.  This feat is extremely risky and missing a step by an inch could cause him to break his neck.

Street Violinist Bryson Andres

Bryson Andres is an excellent violinist.  It is amazing to see great talent on the streets doing what they love.  You can tell that Andres puts his heart into his music which is one vital component that many musicians may lack.  Not to mention the electric violin and Secrets by One Republic combination which is just awesome.

Cliff Jumping

Cliff Jumping is a crazy, adrenaline pumping sport.  It is incredibly dangerous as one wrong step or jump could lead you plummeting to your death.  Here are just a few of my favorite risk takers doing what they love.

Speed Climbing

Spiderman may not exist, but these guys are getting pretty close.  Zhong Qixin sets the new world record for speed climbing on this 15 meter course at 6.26 seconds.  It almost seems like he is flying up that wall rather than scaling.  The time and dedication it would take to be able to perform at this speed is almost unimaginable.

The art industry is always looking for people that mix passion with creativity.  Max Zorn does just that.  He has introduced a whole new way to make art.  Using only brown packing tape, he can create masterpieces like the one above.  You can see how he makes this particular piece in the video below.

The Rollerman

Here is a case where creativity and the love for risk go perfectly together.  Jean Yves Blondeau shows off his roller suit while flying down mountain roads at incredible speeds.  One wrong move could send him tumbling off a cliff, but that doesn't stop him.

You can buy one of these suits yourself at and you can check out more films from the producer of this one at

The Amazing Human Race

If I have learned one thing from spending hours on the internet, it is that people are amazing.  Every single one them is completely unique and special.  This website is devoted to the risky daredevils, the beautifully talented, and the ones that just make you wonder.  From street performers to sky divers, these are the ones that spend hours on end every single day to perfect themselves in what they love.  They prove the impossible to be possible.  This is the Amazing Human Race.
