In 1859, a 34-year-old French acrobat named Jean Fran├žois Gravelet set out to become the first person to "rope dance" across Niagara Falls. Better known as Charles Blondin, Gravelet always worked without a net because he believed that preparing for disaster would inevitably cause it to occur. Relive his thrilling bid to cross the "boiling cataract" linking the United States to Canada.

In 1613, London's Globe Theatre burned down after a prop cannon used during a performance of William Shakespeare's Henry VIII caused the thatched roof to catch on fire. The theater where the Bard's most famous plays were performed would be rebuilt the following year. But not all of Shakespeare's plays brought the house down, some of them were downright terrible. Read about the plays that some critics have never come to appreciate.
