Part of tourism is to bring majorly extreme sports to the big cities in order to attract foreigners. These sports include flowriding, extreme skiing, bungee jumping and even bodyboarding. Adrenaline is addicting, which is why people love it so much and would spend thousands of dollars for such an exciting experience.
There is science to explain the love for death-defying activities, which sports enthusiasts are thankful for. They make money inventing new arts and different ways for people to enjoy the thrill. But the real question is: are any of these sports activities safe?
While many people are addicted to the rush, a lot are still fearful for their lives. One single mistake could lead to a cold corpse in a while. Will risking a bountiful life worth the jump? Probably not!
A video has recently made it to the list of trending topics when a group of men from the Middle East took the term ‘extreme’ to the next level.
The group set up a huge open-air slingshot from a tall building’s rooftop and tied a man to the projectile pocket. The goal was a big net in the next building, but the man, unfortunately, missed it!
He was heard screaming from mid-air. He had no parachute or any other equipment that would have saved his life. The crew was captured to be in shock, so they run for help.
The post gained almost 9 million views and more than 166,000 shares on Facebook.
Read what the netizens had to say in the comments:
Shahmeer Mariappan shared, “Actually they were aiming for the next building… in case you wondered…. he had time to change in mid-air….”
But another commented and said the video was “nonsense”. And some, like this certain Chris White, said it’s fake.
There is nothing wrong about trying new things, but prioritizing safety should always be on top of everything. We do hope that the video is part of a movie of some sort and is actually fake!

This Guy Returns Wallet He Found with Php30k, Gets 3x Bonus at Work as Good Karma
If you find something that does not belong to you, you can always choose to keep it in what many would claim as theirs under the “Finders, keepers” rule but being honest and returning this item or finding the rightful owner is still the best route. Though you might ‘lose’ the item you found (but it wasn’t even yours to begin with!), good karma can easily step in and give you the best reward…
This is what happened to Alvin Balbon, an elementary school teacher in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.
Last June 5, Balbon picked up a wallet that contained Php30k inside. It was certainly a huge amount of money and he admits to feeling a little bit tempted to keep it – honestly, who wouldn’t feel the same way, eh?
But he knew the money wasn’t his and that someone was surely distraught over the loss; thus, he posted about the lost item at a local Facebook marketplace group, known as “Bid for Me”. He instructed the owner to send him a private message but if he couldn’t find the owner at the group, he plans to turn over the wallet to the Dumaguete Police Station.
Four days later, the owner was able to retrieve the wallet and the money, intact. According to Balbon, the owner was very happy and thankful to get the money back, saying it was for tuition fee.
He was only going the right thing and did not expect anything back — but there’s this thing called ‘good karma’.
The following day, Balbon unexpectedly received a cash bonus from a sideline work that was 3 times the amount he found in that wallet he returned!
With this bonus, he was able to buy the things he had longed for in the past (a motorcycle and a brand new phone) and still had some money left to buy other things he needed. That was certainly awesome karma for what he did, right?
Feeling ecstatic over the good fortune and the good karma, Balbon shared his story on social media in hopes of inspiring others to be honest and to do the right thing, not expecting anything in return — and just let the universe do its thing at providing you good karma…
Mourning Boyfriend ‘Marries’ Pregnant Girlfriend after Accident That Claimed Her Life
It was supposed to be their 5th anniversary as a couple and the guy had already planned a surprise proposal for his pregnant girlfriend; instead of celebrating the beautiful moment, though, he was at the cemetery and bidding farewell to her forever… Heartbreaking? Definitely!
But this was not some twisted plot from some random tear-jerking movie or TV soap opera. Instead, it happened to netizen Christian John and his girlfriend, Josanne Alejandro.
One of the saddest things about this situation is that Josanne was pregnant and they had only confirmed the pregnancy last May 28, just 2 days before her untimely death.
On May 30, the day before that fateful moment, the two had an awesome time. Christian John cooked sinigang for the first time to celebrate their new baby – and Josanne loved it!
Josanne had told her officemates about the pregnancy and expressed excitement over the baby, saying it was the day she had fully felt that she was truly pregnant.
Behind her back, Christian John was planning a surprise proposal on their 5th anniversary. First, he asked permission from her family for the proposal, telling him he hoped the wedding would happen the soonest time possible, quite possibly the next month. Then, he sought help from his family and friends to plan the proposal.
Late that afternoon, Josanne warned Christian John that perhaps they shouldn’t ride a motorcycle in going to work but he ignored that warning, something that he would later regret.
He was driving a motorcycle when they met an accident. At 3:30AM on May 31, Josanne passed away. It was the most heartbreaking thing that could ever happen to anyone.
The next few days was a blur to Christian John who spent hours crying and asking forgiveness from family and friends over the accident; but it really was an accident – and they accepted his apologies.
But as his post went viral, many netizens couldn’t help but wonder what really happened. Their friend, Tonee Ponze, explained that there are things that are difficult to recall and explain, especially in this situation.
Despite what happened, Christian John continued with his plan. Sadly, the proposal and the subsequent ‘marriage’ ceremony wasn’t what he had originally planned…
Nangangarap at Umaasa parin na sana lahat ng ito ay isang panaginip lang. 😭Na sana One day paggising ko kasama na kita…
Supportive Husband Shares Pregnant Wife’s Struggle with Rare Illness
On their wedding day, Limuel Orense De Silva and Mary Grace Manalo De Silva promised to love each other through sickness and health. Little did they know that this vow will be challenged very soon in their marriage.
September 16, 2017 was one of the happiest days in their lives. It was the day they got married.
Four months later, this vow was challenged when Grace was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome, a rare condition that affects only 1 in 100k people.
What’s worse, she was 3 months pregnant at the time!
Due to the condition, Grace’s entire body was paralyzed; she could only move her head, but barely so. She couldn’t fully close her eyes and these were drying out. She lost her ability to swallow and she could barely breathe.
The next 3 months were a struggle to this couple as Grace was in ICU. They also lost their baby, worsening the challenge they were facing. But through it all, Limuel stuck with Grace and loved her with all his heart.
They also kept their faith in God.
When Grace was finally out of the hospital, Limuel was there to help her get back in shape and walk again. Therapy started immediately but the going was tough for Grace who had to endure the pain.
She was out of the hospital but still experiencing difficulties; she still could not walk and her legs have become too thin, unable to support her body.
Physical therapy sessions are also expensive; thus, Limuel did his best to create DIY things she can use for the home sessions. At times, he did the therapy by himself.
Soon enough, Grace was able to stand up on her own and take a few steps with the aid of a walker. She still continues with therapy but little by little her health improved and her body became stronger.
Amazingly, 5 months after diagnosis, Grace was able to walk again! Isn’t that amazing? While she still needs a cane for support from time to time, she can already manage on her own.
Considering what they had been through the past months, it was quite incredible that she is able to do this so soon…
