FMX biker Josh Sheehan made history this week as the first motocross rider in the world to complete a triple backflip.

He performed the stunt at Pastranaland in Maryland on April 28, and he has pent the last year preparing for it.

Travis Pastrana, who owns the park, was the first to perform a double backflip back in 2006.

Holy smokes!

A woman in Jerusalem was arrested this week for setting fire to a car because someone wouldn’t give her a cigarette.

Security cam footage shows the woman approaching a man at a gas station. After the rejection, she takes out a lighter and ignites the gas tank, which quickly bursts into flames.

Fortunately, the guy pulls out the pump preventing the car from exploding.

Here’s the appropriate way to respond to being denied a cigarette.

Just watching this might make your palms sweat.

A bunch of thrill seekers in Dubai recently leapt 1300 feet off the Princess Tower, which is known as the world’s second tallest residential-only building (next to 432 Park Avenue in New York).

The stunt dubbed “Dream Jump Dubai” was a collaboration between SkydiveDubai, XDubai and a Polish company called Dream World which has created a mechanism that allows you to “experience freefall without deploying a parachute.”

The DreamJump system uses multiple zip lines and a harness, and it lets you drop for a longer amount of time than you can with just a bungee cord.

“Bungee is just one rope. This has two, so it is safer and more comfortable,” the creator, Thomas Zielinski, told The National. “If you use bungee, the experience can be like giving birth. This is more like eating an ice cream.”

Only ice cream doesn’t come with the risk of ending up on the ground flattened like a pancake.

There were also about 558 terrifying base jumps off the platform over the course of 6 days.

Riots broke out in Baltimore on Monday following the funeral of Freddie Gray, with people looting shops, fighting each other and setting fires across the city in what CNN is describing as a “war zone.”

But not everyone is causing trouble.

Amid all the chaos, a Michael Jackson impersonator named Dimitri Reeves has been spotted dancing in the streets as part of a peaceful protest.

There are a number of different videos being passed around on social media of the guy blasting music and showing off his moves on top of a truck.

NBC reporter Shomari Stone posted the “Beat It” clip above on Twitter, and you can check out more of him below.

He’s also been retweeting shout outs from people thanking him for using his music to encourage peace and bring some joy to an otherwise dismal day.

Come for the delicious wings and beer, stay for the violation of your privacy!

A comedian named Tamale Rocks was performing at a bar in Chicago called Cigars and Stripes, when she noticed something strange in the women’s bathroom.

There was a full length mirror opposite the toilet, which upon further investigation, turned out to actually be a two-way mirror allowing anyone to secretly watch you pee while hiding in a supply closet on the other side.

After the video was posted online, Jezebel contacted the bar’s owner Ronnie Lotz, to inquire about the mirror, and his response to whole thing is absolutely insane.

You need to read the entire thing.

“I will burn this fucking place to the ground before I get rid of that mirror,” he said. “Do you know how much joy that mirror has brought to us?”

He says the bar also used to hang a witch’s head in the supply closet to scare women. And throughout their conversation, he repeatedly mentions his chicken wings.

“We specialize in making people feel very uncomfortable,” he added.

Mission accomplished.

The bar has since promoted Jezebel’s article on their own Facebook page.

In the time it takes you to read this, Collin Burns might have already solved a Rubik’s cube.

At an official World Cube Association competition in Doylestown, Pennsylvania on Saturday, Burns set a new world record by completing a 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube in just 5.25 seconds.

You can check out another view of the feat here.

Warning: Demon child screaming in the background ruins everything.

The previous record was broken by Mats Valk from the Netherlands back in 2013, with a time of 5.55 seconds, which you can watch below.

Russia’s war on twerking rages on, as yet another group of women find themselves in trouble with the law after shaking their booties.

In the music video above, six women are dancing at the Malaya Zemlya WWII memorial in Novorossiysk, and now several of them are dancing in jail.

“We condemn these women,” said a rep for the local education department. “Every inch of this land is covered in blood. It is inappropriate.”

Margarita Radetskaya, the 18-year-old leader of the dance group, was sentenced to 15 days of administrative arrest as punishment for “petty hooliganism,” according to The Guardian. Two of the other women will be jailed for 10-days while another two were fined.The sixth girl was underage, so her parents are being punished instead for “failing to take measures to facilitate children’s physical, intellectual, psychological, spiritual and moral growth.”

The twerking video was reportedly intended as a promotion for dancehall classes at a nearby studio called Art Dance, but it is unclear why they chose the WWII memorial as their backdrop.

“In the course of the inquiry, an assessment will be given to how the authorities complied with the laws on preservation of cultural heritage monuments, on education and moral upbringing of young people, and to how law enforcement authorities maintained public order,” said prosecutors, according to The Washington Post.

Another dance studio also recently came under fire after a video emerged of girls in bee costumers twerking on stage with a weird looking “Winnie-the-Pooh” holding a pot of honey.

May marks the 70th anniversary of Russia’s defeat of the Nazis, and the Victory Day festivities are not likely going to involve any sort of celebratory twerking.
