Images of the Day
Ukrainian Daredevil Hanging Out Above It All
March 28, 2013

The phrase "don't try this at home" gets thrown around a lot. Here's why it was invented.

These are photos of a Ukrainian daredevil who calls himself "Mustang Wanted".

As you can see, he's a big fan of just... hanging - from extremely tall buildings and structures.

According to Metro UK, Mustang says he is able to pull off these death-defying stunts in large part because he doesn't experience fear.

"Sometimes I think that I'm a robot. I do not feel anything," he said.

These photos are from his website (which is still under construction). He's also got some videos on there. Just make sure you're feeling very calm when you watch them.


Of course, Mustang knows that what he does isn't for everyone.

He offers a different take on "don't try this at home" on his site: "But don't try any of my tricks by yourself, that's extremely dangerous. I'm doing all that stuff for years, just for my personal joy. Take care of your life and health!"

Good advice. Instead of doing something very, very dangerous, let's all stay on solid ground and look at these shots.
