Urban exploration: Dead Cats Margarine Tunnel

Dead cats were blended into margarine and fed to humans. We're going to a secret, abandoned tunnel to meet the ghosts of the cats. But it won't be easy to get there.

But first a warning. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE should you try to enter the place that we describing in this article. It is on an area of grave danger and for this reason, I'm not revealing the location. ENTERING THIS AREA PUTS YOU IN DANGER OF DEATH AND INJURY. Even being nearby is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. You have been WARNED. We take no responsibility if you choose to not follow our advice.

At first, we thought the problem was the cliff. A fall here would likely be deadly. But it was nothing compared to walk we had to do after scaling the cliff on our ropes. Dangling above the sea, stepping on remains of the few burned and rotten planks. I'm surprised we did not fall.

Compared to this, the relative safety of the tunnel was soothing. Or would have been, if it weren't for the thoughts about the ghosts of the cats. Or the people who were tricked to eat them 50 years ago.

But, unknown to us, the real danger was on return. We're in a bad neighbourhood. And in a city that razes Unesco heritage sites for fun and profit. But I don't want to meet the local thugs, when even the local ten year old girls are deadly dangerous.

Remember the cliff, and the rope? Imagine descending a cliff or a cave, only to find your rope stolen and slings thrown into the sea when you attempt the return?

Next Level Parkour on the Rooftops of Tokyo

Next Level Parkour on the Rooftops of Tokyo

Jason Paul, a German-born “freerunner”, is really good at jumping off and around stuff. His athletic prowess includes a Spiderman like precision, which is on display in this video of him leaping from rooftop to rooftop in Tokyo, Japan. He refers to this jaunt across the skyline as his morning walk, even though this casual term includes launching himself over railings, between buildings, and down cement staircases. Even if you live in a big city, we wouldn’t recommend trying this unless you’re

Red Bull X-Alps May Be the Most Euro Thing Ever

While we are celebrating our summers riding bikes and drinking beer by the lake, a crew of European hardmen is currently racing what may be the hardest endurance race ever conceived. Red Bull X-Alps, a 700-mile race across the Alps from east to west in which athletes are only allowed to travel on foot or by paraglider, is currently going off across the pond. There is no set course, only checkpoints (usually atop high mountains) that need to be reached by a set time in order to stay in the

Snowmelt Made the North Fork Championships a Spectacle of Whitewater

Snowmelt Made the North Fork Championships a Spectacle of Whitewater

The North Fork Championships is one of whitewater kayaking's most difficult events. It's a gated, one-mile sprint through the North Fork of the Payette River in Idaho, which is home to some of the world's most technical class five whitewater. Just running this section on a normal day would be enough to make any seasoned kayaker nervous. Race day, however, was far from normal. Increased snowmelt had raised the river level to three times the volume of last year's race, some competitors
