Scott Young lists his occupation as "daredevil," which seems accurate given that he's performed a handstand on the edge of a 40-story building in Shanghai, China, without a harness or safety net.

The 25-year-old British man explained how he's able to perform such a feat to the Mirror: "When you do a handstand, you have to focus on the ground in front of you to keep your balance. If it's only a few feet away, that's fine, but I look right down to the bottom of the building – it's so far I just have to block it out of my mind."

If you're having trouble watching the video, you're not alone: His mom refuses to watch his stunts.
