Out of nearly 8 billion people walking around on this Earth, it’s no surprise that some of us are going to stand out or possess skills that put the average human to shame. I’m not talking about your class valedictorian or the guy who came to the county fair to show off his amazing yo-yo skills. In fact, I’m talking about some real live super humans who are able to do things that most people don’t even dream of. There are people in this world who have abilities far beyond those of a normal person making them somewhat super in their own way. These 30 super humans will blow your mind. What they do is pretty much inconceivable but they somehow gained the knowledge and skill to pull off some pretty amazing things. Some of them are just down right nuts but none the less they have something inside that allows them to push all risks aside and conquer these feats. I’m happy when I can pull my underwear up without tripping and falling on the floor. I think that’s probably the last thing these people think about. Take a look at what I mean.

I don’t think these people have a death wish, I just think they have absolutely no fear! To successfully accomplish these stunts takes years and years of practice and training. Do Not Try Any Of These At Home! These guys are professionals and it’s easy to see how they can turn their love of stunts into a career. People love seeing this stuff, especially when it’s successful. You won’t ever find me strapping rubber bands to my feet and jumping off of bridges or walking out on the wings of my plane but I will be at the front row below with a bag of popcorn and my jaw on the floor.
