This video will make your palms sweat.

The latest insane person to climb something ridiculously high with GoPro camera for kicks, is this dude.

Flaviu Cernescu recently climbed up an abandoned 920-foot tall chimney in Romania without any safety equipment, and then walked around on the rusted beams and loose bricks at the top.

Why? To motivate others.

"My message is to inspire people to take on their dreams step by step. The goal is not to imitate or outdo somebody but to do what you love and love what you do," he said.

And maybe also try not to die.

Sky Stack is an art installation that consists of five reflective rings wrapped around an old chimney rising above Clasen Business Park in Kassel, Germany. Designed by Hamburg-based architecture studio asdfg, the shiny stripes mirror the changing colors of the surrounding sky to create a magical illusion of a partitioned chimney tower floating in the air.
