People addicted to adrenaline, or so called thrill seekers, are always ready to do crazy and outrageous things. Things that we would never even think about.

Majority of people have innate fear of heights. However, some of the fears are developed throughout the life. You are probably familiar with the feeling of a sudden chill running down your spine. Or, a strange bubbling in your tummy caused by some sort of anxiety. This usually happens after looking down from the edge of a cliff, or a skyscraper.


Whereas many of us try to avoid facing extreme heights, there are people who seek such thrilling activities. We call them thrill seekers or adrenaline junkies. These adventurous spirits find pleasure and excitement in risky situations. They enjoy putting their lives on the line. Experts claim that the “high” they get from dangerous activities is similar to the “high” people get from various drugs.

We have collected 15 of the most death-defying photos, photos of true daredevils. Just looking at them will give you goose bumps.
