    There's an astronaut saying: In space, "there is no problem so bad that you can't make it worse." So how do you deal with the complexity, the sheer pressure, of dealing with dangerous and scary situations? Retired colonel Chris Hadfield paints a vivid portrait of how to be prepared for the worst in space (and life) -- and it starts with walking into a spider's web. Watch for a special space-y performance.

    56. Toasty Scoot

      There’s a difference between the most dangerous thing you have done VS the most dangerous thing you’ve taken part in. One relies on your ability strictly, the other relies on other circumstances. Frontflip barspin on a scooter across a wooden box jump was probably the most dangerous thing I ever did, and I do it for fun, but driving a car is definitely the most dangerous thing I have participated in and I do it just for work. In my opinion, it’s more dangerous when you have little to no control over what’s happening (I.e. me out on the road or you floating around in space)
