Ok, here’s the disclaimer: List25 does not support riots, molotov cocktails, burning effigies, or anything of the sort. With that said, however, this rapidly growing pastime was just too crazy to keep off the list. People actually scour the world looking for riots to join. What you do with this information is up to you.
If you ever make it out to Manali, India you absolutely have to check this extreme sport off of your bucketlist. Participants start out on skis at the bottom of a large slope while they are attached by rope to a yak that it is at the summit. On the yak’s end the rope passes through a pulley system connected to a tree. The brave soul at the bottom then shakes a bucket of pony nuts to attract the yak’s attention just before being catapulted up the hill at breakneck speed. The one piece of advice offered to every willing participant: don’t shake the bucket before you are attached to the rope.
Allegedly one of the worlds newest extreme sports, this interesting activity involves the act of ironing your clothes in ridiculous situations. Think climbing Mount Everest or skydiving. The best part though? Two checkmarks on your bucketlist for the price of one.

While most of your high school buddies will retire on the beach and spend their days playing golf next to the water, allow us to make a suggestion – play golf under the water. Seriously though, having started in a Chinese aquarium underwater golf is just another way to set your eulogy apart from the others.
Remember as a kid how you used to sit at the top of the hill and wish you could roll down in a huge ball? Well maybe not, but by using a large plastic sphere known as a Zorb you can get the full experience. Remember though, an empty stomach is your best friend.
