16 Pics That Are One Step Closer To The Edge, And I'm About To Break

Diply 9 Apr 2018

Sometimes, danger is right around the corner and we don't even know it. The pics we're looking at today can get a little too close for comfort. Whether they skillfully avoided a major catastrophe or they were just luckier than a leprechaun with a horseshoe for a butt, they dogged a real bullet.

So you might wanna hold your breath at some of these, and some maybe even your nose, but if there's one thing Linkin Park taught me in high school, it's that I'm now one step closer to the edge and I'm about to...

1. We'll start with something a little lighter. Not that you'd want to get these two mixed up, though.

I'm pretty sure that's lowkey Steve Rogers, Captain America. Well, I guess if it isn't, it's good to know there are some real superheroes out there.

As a bit of a beardy-boi myself, this horrifies me. Luckily, I haven't gotten my beard stuck in the office in over a month! Stupid shredding machine.

Good thing cats don't normally like to just lie down and relax in awkward places...oh, wait, no — it's the opposite of that.

5. Just ooooone little inch more — but nope, made off without a scratch!

I have no idea how it happened, but that tree is obviously a fan of that car's paint job.

There's still a chance that the slightest movement could ruin this. I hope they're good Jenga players.

Or, at least, I think his speech was about safety. I wasn't really paying attention.

I mean, if you're lucky enough to not have your key lost in a sewer grate. Knowing my luck, the Ninja Turtles would be stealing my car by now.

As my coworker who sits next to me can attest to, I'm no stranger to suddenly flailing my arms around like a frenetic muppet, knocking drinks over like I have something against 'em.

Honestly, it's hard to have to lose a tallboy, but better that can than your head! It's just a Coors, anyway, you'll be fine.

It'd be a real shame to mess up that pedicure job, too...although the blood might fit the shade — who knows?

It makes me woozy just thinking of it — I do not do heights. Let's do pizza or drinks, not heights.
