You might remember one other video of awesome wingsuit BASE jumping (see here) done in Norwegian fjords. But here, Melissa Andrezjewski and Chris McNamara are jumping from a cliff on Baffin Island, and it looks cold... and forbidding, indeed.
You can swim with a lion - see here - but giving it a soap bath is another story. Watch a video of a man bathing a full-grown lion with a baby shampoo (a comfortable water temperature is the key here.... no kidding) -
Grass is always greener - on the roof

Actually, this image depicts an unusual form of performance art:
"Performer and choreographer Charlie Morrissey, in bowler hat, rehearsed with his dance troupe at low tide between the piers at Brighton. The dancers performed “Knee High, Skin Deep” to an audience sitting on the beach, but this photograph was taken 100 yards out to sea to get some depth of water."

"Karen Battles the Time Robot", 1948
"Gunfight in the Lab"
"Atomic Ants": a mad scientist plays with cosmic rays... and a girl has to pay for it, of course
