1. This man who can balance his entire body on a glass bottle.

Because he was too busy surviving the Holocaust when he was a kid.

4. This 104-year-old paraglider named Peggy McAlpine.

She jumped 2,400 feet to RECLAIM her previous WORLD RECORD of being the oldest female paraglider.

She’s in her eighties, she’s from Australia, and she’s been doing this for FORTY YEARS.

*Or 94 years old, he couldn’t remember which year he was born.
