Thanks to the internet, the very normal public has been overwhelmed with extreme sports videos in recent years. So much that it can be a little hard to impress now.

However, this clip of a literal human catapult is legitimately insane. 

The contraption, which was tested out by BASE jumpers Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Pouchert, launches its victims over 300 feet into the Dubai sky. In just one second, they are catapulted from zero to 124 miles-per-hour where they endure 6Gs of force before launching their parachutes and safely returning to earth.
