Calgary resident Gord Relph is a grown-ass man, but when he booked a room at Winnipeg's Fairmont Hotel, there was an option to include special instructions.

So he seized the moment: "I wrote down, 'Pre-made pillow fort, and a vanilla Coke.'"

Relph thought nothing of it, until he arrived at the hotel to find a bunch of extra pillows, snacks, and a note saying, "DYI (sic) fort."

I consider myself a man of action, so when I saw the tools before me, I knew I had to make it happen.

Relph donned a T-shirt turban and documented the build-out for the masses. Don't miss the gallery chronicling all his fun.

When a thief tries to make off with a woman's iPhone, a couple of nearby New Yorkers chase him down and issue a citizens arrest, then enlist a mob of passersby to help keep the thief on the ground until police arrive.

Badass.

Emile Leray was driving through the Moroccan desert in 1993 when his Citroën car broke down. Stranded, Leray considered his options -- and walking back to civilization was not among them. "I could not have gone back on foot -- it was too far," he says.

Luckily, the Frenchman was an electrician by trade, so he decided to MacGyver his car into a motorcycle:

I put myself in what one calls survival mode. I ate less; I monitored my supplies of water and of food to make them last as long as possible.

Twelve days later, Leray managed to escape the scorching African desert on his jury rigged bike, brilliantly engineered from the remains of his car.

He only recently began sharing his story of survival.

It's been 116 long years, but Niagra Falls has finally been traversed again via wire. Nik Wallenda, a seventh-generation acrobat, became the first person to cross directly over the falls, completing the 1,800-foot trek in just over 25 minutes Friday night. Supporters hope the stunt will help boost sagging tourism on both the Canadian and American sides of the falls.
