As you might know, adrenaline is developed by our body when we experience dangerous or stressful situations and causes a condition similar to euphoria. This hormone of fear helped our ancestors to mobilize their body’s resources to protect themselves from predators. Nowadays, since there is not much danger around us, we figured out other ways to cause this adrenaline rush. We watch horror movies, we dive, or like the heroes of our article, we make mind-blowing things.
