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.

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.

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.
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.
