How To Die In The Russian Mountains


The manufacturers of this knock-off Zorb (an inflatable rubber ball you climb into and are then rolled, pushed, or thrown around inside of) quietly did not mention that a thrillseeker recently died from being pushed down a ski slope in Russia inside of one. While you can withstand minor collisions inside one of these, it’s not meant to be used to roll off a cliff and come to a stop on a frozen lake a mile away.

(Also, this is a knockoff of the original Zorb, which could make it more likely that it’ll collapse or be punctured, so even if you’re into this kind of thing, you probably shouldn’t buy this one.)
