It's time to have some real fun -- the kind that makes your palms sweat and your heart race. The kind that gets caught in your throat, emerging only after the adrenaline dies down as a primal, life-affirming holler. The kind your mom might shake her head at with a concerned look and an exasperated sigh.

Some of the clips below (who are we kidding - most) are foolish even in the best of circumstances. It goes without saying, but you shouldn't attempt any of these on your own.

Below, we've collected videos of those whose zeal for life expresses itself in unconventional, yet downright awesome ways.

There was a photo finish at a junior high school track meet in Illinois over the weekend as two runners crossed the line at almost the same time -- but they weren't battling for first and second place.

They were coming in dead last, for the best reason possible.

Twin sisters Chloe and Claire Gruenke, 13, had been competing in the 800-meter race at the Southern Illinois State Track Meet when Chloe felt something pop and went down.

"I thought oh my goodness what just happened," Claire told KSDK.com. "I went up to her and I said 'Chloe are you okay?' and she was like 'I don't know. Something just pulled in my leg.'"

Claire didn't call for help, nor did she wish her sister better luc

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Thanks to a 911 dispatcher, an 8-year-old girl helped her mother deliver a baby boy while waiting for paramedics to arrive at their Tampa Bay-area home.

According to Tampa Fire Rescue, Krystle Garcia was in labor Monday morning when she called 911. The dispatcher alerted paramedics, but they weren't quick enough to get there before the baby started to arrive.

Authorities say the dispatcher "expertly and compassionately" talked Garcia and her daughter Jazmine through the delivery of the baby. During an eight-minute call, Jazmine calmly relays the dispatcher's instructions to her mother, gets towels and other items and secures the baby's head.

"She is in so much pai

About 100 state troopers and deputies planned to search through the night for the third occupant of a hot air balloon that crashed in flames at a Virginia balloon festival, killing the other two people on board, state police said Saturday. Witnesses captured photographs of the balloon after it drifted into power lines, burst into flames Friday night and crashed into the countryside about 25 miles north of Richmond. Some reported seeing two people either jump or fall from the basket at a dizzying height.

The bodies were found about 1,500 yards apart in a heavily wooded area, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said Saturday afternoon.

Two members of the University of Ric

A 93-year-old Central Texas woman was fatally shot at her home by a police officer – who has a history of fatal shootings when after she allegedly brandished a gun, the Hearne Police Department said Wednesday.

Pearlie Golden, a longtime resident of Hearne who was affectionately known to her neighbors as Ms. Sully, was shot Tuesday night by Officer Steven Stem, Robertson County District Attorney Coty Siegert said.

According to KBTX, Golden was shot five times after raising her weapon. The station also reports that it was Golden’s nephew who called police about the dispute.

Patients who use medical marijuana for pain and other chronic symptoms can take an unwanted hit: Insurers don't cover the treatment, which costs as much as $1,000 a month.

Once the drug of choice for hippies and rebellious teens, marijuana in recent years has gained more mainstream acceptance for its ability to boost appetite, dull pain and reduce seizures in everyone from epilepsy to cancer patients.

Still, insurers are reluctant to cover it, in part because of conflicting laws. While 21 U.S. states have passed laws approving it for medical use, the drug still is illegal federally and in most states.

But perhaps the biggest hurdle for insurers is the U.S. Food and Drug Administrati

From the day she came home, Matilda the foster kitten has been obsessed with Lisa Revella Morabito's pit bulls. And Morabito has a lot of pit bulls to capture this girl's not-always-completely-useful attention.

"She tries to nurse off of Spike," says Morabito, "which is funny since he's our only male dog."

Spike, the boy, is 9 years old, and, no, he is not lactating. Piglet is a deaf 8-year-old pit mix who was rescued from a dog fighting situation about seven years ago, and is now a therapy dog. Betty White, also a pit, is 7 years old and was brought to BARCS -- the Baltimore anim

When 16-year-old Grace Bush receives her high school diploma this week, she won’t be looking forward to four years in college -- but that's not because she won’t be getting a higher degree. Bush received her college diploma days before graduating high school, according to CBS Miami.

Bush attended Florida Atlantic University High School in Boca Raton where students are given the opportunity to dual enroll in college courses and earn credits for a higher degree, according to the Sun Sentinel.

“I started when I was 13 at Broward College and I also took my classes throughout the summer, so I was able to finish it before four years,” Bush, who received her degree from Florida Atlantic Unive

The rodent fountain of youth may not be filled with water, but with blood. A trio of new studies has discovered that the blood of young mice appears to reverse some of the effects of aging when put into the circulatory systems of elderly mice.

After combining the blood circulations of two mice by conjoining them — one old, the other young — researchers found dramatic improvements in the older mouse’s muscle and brain. After four weeks, stem cells in both those areas got a boost of activity and were better able to produce neurons and muscle tissue.

They later discovered that injections of a special protein found abundantly in young blood — or even transfusions of whole young blood — giv

ELIMSPORT, PA. — Authorities investigating the carbon monoxide deaths of two adults and three children in a north-central Pennsylvania cabin said the mother of two of the children had left early in the morning, before the tragedy was discovered.

Lycoming County Coroner Chuck Kiessling said Sunday the mother of two girls, aged 4 and 9, left the small cabin with another woman about 5 a.m. Saturday after a night of partying. He said police do not believe evidence supports criminal charges against the mother.

Kiessling said the girls, a man, a woman and the woman's 3-year-old son all died in their sleep of carbon monoxide toxicity caused by an improperly ventilated propane heater.
