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.

Thanks to lawyers and crazy people, every car ad these days notes a disclaimer along the lines of "closed course, professional driver, do not attempt." While such messages are more or less impotent, every once in awhile -- as is the case with this Volvo spot -- the ad execs really mean it when they say "do not try this at home."
