    Those of us who spend most of our waking hours in a cubicle or other equally ordinary environment seek our own types of thrills – whether it’s an adrenaline-pumping outdoor adventure or the latest crazy food fad. But even before the advent of office jobs and Cronuts, the oldest earth dwellers also found unique ways of living – or in some cases dying – on the edge. Their inventions eventually gave rise to many of the adventure sports we know and love today. Here are five of the most extreme ancient sports you’ve probably never heard of. 5 of the Most Extreme Ancient Sports LAND…

    Alex Jones is no stranger to conspiracy theories, obviously, but here's a really good one that doesn't come from him — rather, it's about him: Have you perhaps heard that he is actually legendary Texas comedian Bill Hicks, who allegedly died in 1994, but who was actually "recruited by the CIA to become the controlled opposition by the mainstream media" who was "continuously fed approved intelligence by his CIA handlers?"

    My current work in progress is another Irwin race against time chase around Manchester. One of the spurs was a Government proposal to contract out running of childrens homes to private interests. Which has always worked out so well in the past. On that hook, I hung a story inspired by some of the darker rumours about institutional child abuse and pumped it up. Now, frighteningly, it looks like reality is almost as bad as the over the top take I’m writing. BBC News – Historical abuse inquiry: Police examine 'possible homicide'.

    And no amount of money will change his tune. You've heard it a million times before; Rory MacDonald and former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, will never fight one another. While many, not all, understand that you simply can't expect teammates to fight one another for the sake of money, Rory says it's deeper than that. Appearing on Joe Rogan's podcast (via MMA Fighting), Rory says he isn't bout to stab Georges in the back after he welcomed him with open arms into Tri-Star gym early on in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. "He welcomed it. I…

    Because focusing on one aspect of the fight, could spell disaster for the Stockton slugger. Going into UFC 183, Anderson Silva is adamant he won't be hesitant to throw his patented leg kicks after suffering a devastating break in his left leg over a year ago. Still, he admits there will be a little fear hidden in the back of his mind. One thing he doesn't have to fear, though, is Nick Diaz trying to take advantage of the situation and targeting his injured leg. That's because the Stockton slugger tells Yahoo! Sports that he won't spend his time concentrating on what many perceive to be one…

    While it's always cool to work with fellow surfers and you best bro's from way back when, I think it is possible that it is holding back each webcast's potential. Especially since many from the current commentary and broadcast team lack formal broadcast or commentating experience. Sure, it's nice to have commentators who have backgrounds in professional surfing who can articulate some of the finer details during a contest, but it needs to be matched with some seasoned veterans as well to create a nice balance. That's why I think it could be extremely beneficial to add some experienced…

The latter is often the case for Seasonal CLIF Bar Flavors which are only available for a short period of time each Fall/Winter. We're talking Pecan Pie, Spiced Pumpkin Pie and Iced Gingerbread perfection! Eating one not only provides a great snack, but also makes it truly feel like the holidays are here despite the weather that is trying to prove otherwise.

    Here we go again!  Bayley Maxcy is going to break down so parts for you! The two most common sized scooter wheels in the industry are without a doubt 110mm and 100mm. I’ve seen a few companies start to make 125mm wheels but they haven't really taken off because in order for them to work you need a bigger fork and a bigger brake. I think the industry is going in the direction of bigger parts (125mm wheels, 22 long decks, taller and wider bars, etc) but for now 110mm and 100mm are the main wheel sizes. Kids sometimes don't understand the difference between the two and are confused on…
  • Competition day | How to perform your best

    14 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Competition day can either be a really exciting day for you or a really stressful day, it just all depends on how you interpret it. Most people feel a lot of pressure during competition day because of a few things. Maybe there sponsor is there watching them, or their parents are there, or there just nervous in general because they have to ride in front of a large crowd. Whatever the case may be, you should not be nervous during a comp. I’m going to go over some things that have helped me, and hopefully you can take what you've learned and apply it to yourself to compete at a better level.

    A Greek Adventure

  • Nasty, foggy, beautiful winter Ktenias mountain hiking

    If you have ever been for mountain hiking on any of the Greek mountains you definitely have experienced that amazing beauty of the change of scenery and the open unobstructed gazing at the horizon. It’s an amazing feeling that gives birth to awe, peace, respect and a feeling of achievement. All these and more are present and enhanced at the moment of stepping at the top of the mountain and stick a big smile at your phase. The meeting point for mountain hiking We met at Nestani. This is a small village around 80 minutes from Athens (by car). Nothing significant to see in the village apart…
  • A Scuba Diving Revelation at Corinthia

    A guest experience by Daphne Mavrommati. A Corinth adventurer. Scuba diving was a revelation I was not expecting… Gazing at the silver bubbles of the other divers floating towards the surface I was sorry not to be a poet or a writer of talent to find the right words to express their beauty. So with less exciting prose I want to say that: The combination of the amazing gift of weightlessness; the sounds of silence (the sounds of your inhalation and then your exhalation of bubbles); the “unnatural” proximity to swimming fish which completely ignore you; the all-pervading blue…

    A guest experience by Daphne Mavrommati. A Corinth adventurer. After scuba diving, canyoning was a revelation of an altogether different order. I realized two things: Firstly, that I get myself into small or big adventures far too thoughtlessly (and usually alone on top of that). Only when the security belt was tied around my waist and the security brief started (Fanis said: “If you don’t hold on to that rope you will die”) did it dawn on me that, what I was about to do might actually be dangerous and even life-threatening. What was I thinking? Well, I wasn’t! As I…
  • Wine Tasting, Myths, Cycling, Ancient Games and Bliss – a Different Adventure in Nemea

    11 Nov 2014 | 3:51 am
    Did we tasted wine and ate tasteful food and learned about history? Not just that… We tasted life through all 5 senses, we tasted the essence of the area, its fruits and spirit(s) and we got close with the roots and origins of the country, through history. But, allow us to tell the story… It was that time of the day in the mid-week where we were looking to do something completely different in the approaching weekend. Well, we must have thought of it quite intensively, as an invitation flew in -through Facebook- to visit Nemea for an event that would combine wine tasting, tour-guiding…

  • Super Cute Bear Cub Attacks Man’s Leg

    25 Nov 2014 | 8:56 am
    Bear attacks aren’t something that you would normally want to watch. This video of a bear cub attacking a man’s leg is definitely the exception, you’ll probably watch it at least a second time. After scrambling after the man’s leg and grabbing it, the cub goes in for a bite to the knee. In truth the cub is just play fighting and having fun – the video makes for a fun little watch.

    East Aurora, NY is now a winter wonderland. Perfect for roof to roof snowboarding. Photo from Flickr/dwstucke. Record snowfall has come as a surprise to the people of Western New York, this past week, with the city of Buffalo grinding to a halt under six feet of snow, which is nearly a year’s worth in three days. It’s not all fun and games though. Driving bans have been put in place, and roofs have been buckling under the weight. Governor Cuomo has had to declare a state of emergency in the area, with rescue crews travelling all the way from Long Island to help dig out the area. The…

    “My dad told me everything he learned about fire was from Apaches. Apaches were well known to be warriors—fierce, the last to surrender to the government. At the same time, fire doesn’t care who you are. It will take you out whenever it wants to. We’re just in the way.” These words, from a firefighter, open this recent short documentary profiling the Geronimo Hotshots. The Hotshots are a group of elite wildfire firefighters from the San Carlos Apache Reservation in southeastern Arizona, USA. Unemployment in the area is high, and firefighting jobs are one of the few…

    Ken Block is back with a bang, actually the sound of tortured tyres – but you get the idea. The seventh installment in his insane Gymkhana video series is out for the Hoonigan franchise and it’s a bit different from his previous edits. Don’t worry though, there’s still plenty of rubber-burning madness to enjoy! The streets of LA provide a fitting backdrop for Gymkhana 7, with the varying urban, suburban and mountain landscape hosting drift and doughnut perfection. The film sees Block racing passed some famous landmarks, including Chinatown, Randy’s Donuts and even…
