Stairway to Heaven

Going up stairs does not sound fun at all but rather boring and tiresome. Remember that feeling of finally reaching the 40th step? 50th step? 100th step? Oh, the feeling of being out of breath, the need for water, and sore hamstrings.
Doesn’t sound pleasant does it?

So, why is it that many people still make it their challenge to do some crazy hike that involves pretty much only stairs. Maybe it’s the excuse that it’s in Hawaii! Or maybe it is the simple thrill of being at such high altitudes and having a nice view from above.  Whatever the reasons may be, people begin their 3,922-step journey at the bottom of the Haiku Valley in the island of O’ahu . This is not a simple stair hike but a rather steep vertical trail where eventually some of the stairway steps become invisible in the midst of the fog.  Although it is originally named the Haiku Stairway, however, for this very reason many have also come to know of it as the Stairway to Heaven.

So, the final question is: Do you dare to take the thrill?

The IPECAC Challenge

Hey guys,

Well we’re back in action to present you with another bile inducing, rectum cringing dare. After the popularity of the “Cinnamon Challenge” subsided, thrill seekers and masochists needed a new outlet. Nights of alcohol binging and buffet swarming have led to the fruition of the IPECAC challenge.

“IPECAC? What the hell is that?” In short, Ipecac is an emetic, in other words, a laxative. The catch is, instead of pooping it all out, people vomit it all out. Ipecac works by “acting locally by irritating the gastric mucosa and centrally by stimulating the medullary chemoreceptor trigger zone to induce vomiting.”

First popularized by Family Guy in this clip:

 

Disgusting?

Yes.

Funny?

Of course!

Now, for the challenge:

Another video of the challenge; warning, might actually induce vomiting!

Now the question is,

Do You Dare?

Attention Adrenaline Junkies!

Love roller coasters because of the adrenaline rush that it gives you as it plunges down at an incredible speed? Try going down in skates! Beware: this is not for the average thrill seeker!

Do you dare?
