5. Highest Pool Dive.

Some of us can hardly jump off the high dive at the pool. Oliver Favre, on the other hand, the world record holder for high diving, made it nearly 177 feet (54 meters) — about the height of a 15-story building. Favre barely made it out alive.

How idiotic can people be? Do something productive in your lives, geez.
Also, "Longest Distance Pulled By a Horse While on Fire" is a form of animal abuse.
