Sports like football and basketball are fun- all you have to do is chase a ball and run about a lot. However, the following could kill you but not in a good way.
1. Street Luging
If you play this sport, you will have to climb a huge hill, lie face up on a skateboard and that’s right- roll your way down. Your main aim is to do it fast and make sure that you don’t die. There are no brakes and you will literally be rolling down towards a busy road on a highway. If you don’t have cat-like reflexes, you will be transformed into an attractive pulp in no time.
This sport involves hiring a helicopter and traveling to such snowcaps that are either undiscovered or untouched by civilization. The daredevils then jump onto the slopes with their skis and move towards massive avalanches quite excitedly.
3. Big-Wave Surfing
This may sound fun and look thrilling in movies but if you take part in this sport, you will have to balance yourself on a great wave whose force will be large enough to kill you. If that doesn’t happen, you will be thrown into the water so violently, that you will drown. Now if you are lucky enough to escape that too, you can always come in contact with a submerged rock and crack your head open.
4. Bull Riding
Bull riding involves straddling a bull that will weigh nothing less than 1800 pounds. These bulls are usually extremely ill-tempered because the organizers of the sport are supposed to constrict the animal’s genitals before the game begins. You will be thrown up into the air and if you don’t die on impact, the bull will definitely jump over you.
5. Bull Running
The organizers of this sport let a number of bulls loose on the streets and the participants are meant to run for their lives. Any ‘adult’ who lacks common sense or any sense for that matter can participate. Over 300 people die every year because of bull running.
