A man skydived in an inflatable boat while solving the Rubik's cube at the same time. Because, well, why the hell not? Ludwig Fichte did it all and still managed to remember his parachute. He floated safely to the ground.

 You think skydiving was reckless? Check out this video of a car vaulting into a bridge in Ohio at 100 mph. The vehicle was obliterated, but miraculously, the 19-year-old driver survived.
