Welcome to the world of limits! Limits are the boundaries that keep us safe, healthy, and alive. But what happens when we push those boundaries and test the limits of our bodies? This list is an exploration of the limits at which our bodies stop working. From surviving without food, to boiling blood, to being stuck in a coffin, these 13 stories will make you question how far you can push your body and still stay alive. 

We’ll start off with a guy who managed to reach his goal weight of 180 pounds without eating for 382 days. We’ll then take a trip to the stratosphere, where the boiling point of water is the same as the normal body temperature of 37 degrees Celsius. We’ll also look at what happens when you’re in space without a spacesuit, and the incredible story of Kenny Bräck, who miraculously survived a 214 g-force crash. 

So, if you’re ready to explore the limits at which your body stops working, let’s begin!
