All New Design

Thank you very much for those who have been following our blog & for those who are visiting us for the first time

We just implemented a whole new design, and we hope you find it more pleasing to eye!

Please let us know what do you think of the new design.

We will continue to give you the most daring, crazy and unusual activities people take part of all around the world!

Enjoy!

One of the coolest things I (Kuan) found in America is definitely raccoons! I have never seen an actual raccoon when I was back in Taiwan. It was absolutely amazing for me to see 4 or 5 raccoons at my front door stealing cat food I left out for stray cats. They were not afraid of me at all; they just looked at me and their hands while shoving food in their mouths. They were so adorable!!!

Check out Raccoon Willie!

However, raccoons are so smart, and they love to explore which makes them very destructive! I would personally never get a raccoon pet.

So, DO YOU DARE to get a raccoon as pet?

Please leave comment, or share with us some of the most crazy pets you have ever had!

“Roofers are guys who do not care about height, they conquer all buildings and make frightening images though some of them you might have already seen.” Roofing has become a trend in Russia resulting in some of the most breath-taking photographs taken. These roofers are usually not professional climbers and put themselves in danger to capture these pictures.

Now the question is… DO YOU DARE?

India’s Well of Death

Hey hey yall,

Today’s post focuses on a extremely breath taking show known in India as the Well of Death.

Now, what exactly is this Well of Death? It’s a show that’s shown in India during its many carnivals and fairs, and presents spectators a stunning show that seemingly defies all types of physics!

Imagine a tube that’s 25ft high, and 30ft in diameter, built out of wooden planks. Now imagine as cars and motorcycles are racing in that tube, scaling the walls till they almost hit the spectators ! Seems pretty damn wild now doesn’t it?

Now how does it work? Well basically thinking of a washing machine. We all know how the machine works when it’s spinning, right? It basically applies to this extreme side show. Centrifugal force acts to keep the cars and motorcycles glued to the wall, and this act creates an extremely dazzling and fun performance!

Check out the vids of this chaotic event!

Now the question is… DO YOU DARE?

As an international student from Taiwan, I (Kuan) have eaten probably thousands of 1000 year old eggs until I found out it is officially one of the most disgusting foods in the world. So, what is 1000 year old egg? The Chinese cover raw eggs—duck, chicken and sometimes quail—with a mix of clay, ash, quicklime, salt, and straw and let them sit for weeks or months to cure. The yolks turn deep-green and soften; the whites disintegrate into a transparent amber jelly. Reeking of sulphur, they’re served with silken tofu or pork, scallions and ginger, in the rice porridge known as congee, or simply as part of a banquet platter of cold finger foods.

Let’s check out how Remy thinks about 1000 year old egg.

1000 year old eggs are sold in most Chinese supermarkets today in the US.
But the question is DO YOU DARE?

Please comment and tell us how you think of a 1000 year old egg if you have eaten or not eaten one.

What is something you find delicious but most people would disagree with you?

Like A SpiderMan

Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai, is the tallest building in the world since its official opening on January 4,2010. If you have seen the movie Mission Impossible 3, there was one exciting sceme of Tom Cruise climbing Burj Khalifa using high-tech gadgets. It was not edited with animation,Tom Cruise was actually filmed on Burj Khalifa. Here is the behind the scenes of the movie.

You think that’s pretty cool? How about climbing it without the fancy equipment used for movie?  Alain Robert, a French rock and urban climber known as “the French Spider-Man” accomplished this feat on March 28, 2011. To comply with UAE safety laws Robert, who usually climbs in free solo style, took the unusual step of using a rope and harness for the climb. It took him 6 hours to reach the tallest point on Burj Khalifa. Here is the official video of Alain Robert climbing Burj Khalifa Dubaï.

DO YOU DARE?


Moab is known as a Utah adventure capitol, offering activities such as biking the Slickrock Trail, off-road routes and the Moab Jeep Safari, rafting down the Colorado River and hiking to Delicate Arch – Utah’s famous icon. From scenic parks to adventure, Moab Utah offers something for everyone.

Of all the excitement around the area, we want to share the adventure of Devin and his partners. They recently accomplished an epic swing there. Check out the video they made.


It sure looks a lot of fun flying through the canyons.
But, DO YOU DARE?

Isolation.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to feel weightless? Along with its therapeutic usages, an isolation tank is used for meditation and relaxation purposes. The subject is asked to stay inside a lightless, soundproof tank filled with salt water at skin temperature.

Under the most dangerous conditions, the sensory deprivation may cause panic and have bizarre reactions to the tanks. People undergoing their first experience are often cautioned to not mix the journey with hallucinogenics because hallucinatory reactions are reported quite commonly already. While some people are relaxed enough to fall asleep, others do not have pleasant experiences.

So how about you?

Are you afraid of the dark?

Would you be comfortable with the deafening silence within its chamber?

How about being a tiny, egg-shaped floatation chamber for an hour?

Ultimately, the question is — do you dare to deprive yourself of your senses?

A man’s epic and frightening experience. Please excuse the language.

Now, this sport may not seem extreme or daring, but it is definitely an unsual and crazy activity! Sport stacking or speed stacking, is a sport where players are supposed to stack cups in certain formations in the least amount of time or before their opponent. Seems simple right? Well, there are players out there like,Steven Purugganan, who can stack cups in 5.93 seconds!  There are even rules that all players must follow set by the World Sport Stacking Association.  So do you think you could challenge Steven Purugganan?

Do you dare?

Check out the video below of Steven Purugganan setting a world record!

Living Life on the Edge

Ever feel like getting closer to a waterfall? Enjoy living life on the edge?

It’s possible at the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe during dry seasons. It is known as the “Devil’s Swimming Pool” as tourists dive in to the water and are pushed by the currents until they are eventually stopped by a natural rock wall.

Many tourists try this including children. So how about you? Do you dare?
