These extreme images are not created via computer graphics editing. They are real, unaltered images of athletic daredevil Mustang Wanted scaling scaffolding, dangling from tall towers and climbing cranes. The 26 year-old former legal advisor from Kiev, Ukraine, eschews the use of safety harnesses as he pursues his adrenalin-charged, death-defying hobby across the urban landscapes of Kiev and Moscow - only hindered by occasional police intervention. Nicknamed the 'Real Life Spider-Man', Mustang Wanted says: "Death is not the worst thing that can happen. Everyone dies but not everyone lives the way they want. If you are afraid of everything you must live in a sterile laboratory."

Will You Be My Mummy?

cincinnati zoo gorilla

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden Primate Team Leader Ron Evans works with 2 month-old "Gladys", a Western Lowland Gorilla, as he acts as a surrogate mother, on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 in Cincinnati. Evans says “Gladys” is in good health, developing and growing quickly with loving care from 10 humans imitating a gorilla mom’s behavior. This week she moved from her belly to all fours for the first time. She came to Cincinnati last month from Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, Texas, after she was born there Jan. 29 to a first-time mother who showed little maternal instinct. It was decided to move her to Cincinnati’s zoo because of its extensive experience in raising gorilla babies and its availability of experienced gorilla mothers.

Flagellants whip their backs with wooden flails during holy week on March 28, 2013 in Pampanga province, Philippines. Flagellation (Penitensya in Filipino) is an extreme act of mortification in which the penitent scourges himself by whipping his own flesh. Although the blody practice is condemned by the Catholic church and frowned upon in the modern age, hundreds of Filipino faithfuls still practice it to this day as a form of panata, or vow, and has become a part of Philippine culture and tradition.
