Have you ever wanted to safely stare death in the face and laugh? Now you can. 

Sitting atop Mount Langya in Hebei, China, a glass bridge and observation platform allows you to look down at the 1,476 foot drop below. No cables or harnesses necessary, you can get to the top of Langya by cable car and a 40-minute walk. It's that easy for you to risk it all with minimal risk. 

However, this is the closest I will ever come to this thing:

Advertisement of the Day: This Subway Ad Looks Like Something Out of Mad Max

We get a little bit closer to that dystopian future of our dreams everyday. Sometimes an advertisement notices how close we are.

An subway billboard in Beijing has done just that.

The advertisement is for a sports haze mask and features a female running with a face mask that looks like a souvenir from Fury Road. A sports haze mask is for people attempting to exercise in heavy smog areas, like Beijing.

Twitter reacted, as it's wont to do, welcoming the new oncoming dystopia.

Dressed in her wedding gown, celebrating with family, a call of distress pulls a heroic bride into action.

A 25-year-old newly married woman was taking her wedding photos on a beach when a drowning man was pulled from the ocean.



According to the Daily Mail:

About 100 feet away, Guo Yuanyuan, who was a cardiac nurse at a local hospital, happened to be shooting her wedding photographs on the same beach.

Without thinking, she jumped off a three foot ledge and rushed to the scene while still wearing her wedding gown.

She then proceeded to perform CPR on the man as well as giving him mouth to mouth resuscitation for over 20 minutes.

In the process of saving the man, Guo had ruined her wedding dress, spoilt her make-up and broke her nails.





Very sadly, she was not able to save the man's life.

When paramedics arrived on the scene, they declared the man dead and said the cause was a heart attack.

The Daily Mail quotes Guo about the event:

"At that time, I only remember that I was a nurse. My career's responsibilities are higher than that of a bride."

The "on the roofs" gang were clearly not satisfied with their previous climb in China, the 650-meter-tall Shanghai Tower:

This giant panda statue is supposedly in China somewhere, though we can't seem to dig up much more information than that.
