I Can't Stop Watching These Extreme Hammocking Videos And I Think I'm Going To Barf

Could you chill out while suspended 650 feet in the air?

Oh, btw, TRIGGER ALERT.

::sounds of barfing::

Yes, those are actual, living and breathing humans in hammocks 650 feet above the ground. Is your stomach spinning? Mine sure AF is.

Although, BIG shoutout to whoever suggested putting the hammocks in rainbow order, because it's really quite aesthetically pleasing and giving me super strange calm-while-mortally-terrified vibes.

These images are from the Drill and Chill Climbing and Highlining Festival in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and it's freaking me the fuck out.

Literally, the thumbnail of this video just made me shudder while I was embedding it.

That's a giant nofuckingway.

I......can not.

Sorry....what?

Facebook had a lot of feelings.

"You know how you can easily flip a hammock."

"HELL MOTHER FUCKING NO FUCKING WAY IN MY LIFE WILL I TRY THAT, FOR FUCKS SAKE"

"...I see myself dropping right in between earth's ass crack."

Many, many commenters pointed out the lack of toilets:

To comfort those who are wondering, the hammocks are just one element of the festival, the festival confirmed to BuzzFeed that attendees do not actually sleep or y'know...relieve themselves in them. Showers, toilets, food, booze, and all that good stuff are waiting back at basecamp.

It turns out, though, that this thrill-seeking (STILL SCREAMING) event has philanthropic roots.

According to event co-founder Igor Vukic:

"We created an NGO called Balkan Colours throughout which we want to improve and develop outdoor tourism in Bosnia, by creating interesting festivals, events and attractions like Drill and Chill."

The festival has indeed brought some life and joy back to it's native land. One local said he was happy to see so many people from all over Europe had come together there. "It's not so easy to come and visit this country that was neglected."

The festival focuses on building out the local terrain for climbers and highliners to visit.

To learn more about this adrenaline-pumping gathering, check out the festival on Facebook. People walk that high line, too.
