Ambiance and musicy things by: Gordon McGladdery did the outro music the video.

Bethany drew the pictures and Micah helped animate them. Micah helped me edit.

The thought is it my efforts making videos will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for my kids college education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

    Destin, you’re going to die.

  2. Aaron Gross says:

    As an idiot YouTuber I want you to go to space. But that was scary. I hope
    I didn’t witness you failing out.

    Susan was the real mvp

  4. aPandaZan says:

    Amazing video, Destin! Thank you so much for working so hard to make this
    AND for putting yourself under such extreme conditions for the sake of
    showing us something we otherwise may never fully understand. Great work!

  5. Lidiot Lee says:

    that was too scary

  6. TheBandnerd7797 says:

    I could see this being one of Destin’s biggest videos…

  7. Ashton Rousseau says:

    Wow! Awesome video destin! Probably my favorite so far! :)

  8. chromzepher says:

    I think the most unnerving thing about this video is how you could see the
    panic and fear in Destin’s eyes when he said “I don’t wanna die” before
    they gave him his mask back.

  9. Fiaz Islam says:

    this probably one of the coolest and educating video of its kind on
    stay blessed and keep making more cool videos.

  10. David Hax says:

    I really hope you bought Susan that hamburger, Destin!

  11. Jesse says:

    You have the coolest life Destin

  12. Deon D'Silva says:

    This video is going to be Destin’s highest viewed video ever. That was some
    intense drama.
    90% of the comments are about how emotionally moved people are when
    watching him on the edge of death.

  13. Beacon of Wierd says:

    Why is this not used as the death penalty? I mean, I don’t want there to be
    a death penalty in the first place, but if you’re gonna kill someone
    painlessly this seams to be the way. Destine just said “I don’t want to
    die”, completely unable to realize that he was about to die, no pain, no
    suffering, no lethal injection gone wrong or anything.

  14. BulletChamber129 says:

    “I dont want to die” famous last words

  15. Irun Mon says:

    Well this is fun, if I was a serial killer I would totally do this to all
    my victims lol

  16. StevieSenpai says:

    Wow that was really scary man, when your eye started twitching and you
    shaking got my attention.
    Glad you were with professionals.

  17. Steve Brule says:

    I haz never put da maks on

  18. Melomania says:

    What was it like? Do you remember what happened? Seems like you were
    conscious yet lost. Similar to an anxiety attack.

  19. Taylor Howard says:

    I find it hard to believe you have only 15-30 seconds of conciousness at
    35k feet. the only way that’s true is if the oxygen is literally sucked
    from your body. The average person could hold their breath for at LEAST 15
    seconds which means they’re getting zero oxygen, yet they don’t become so
    oxygen deprived that they can’t even process anything like in this video.
    Correct me if I’m wrong but you’d be getting at least SOME oxygen by
    breathing at high altitudes which is more than you would get holding your

    I’m not denying that you will die eventually in this situation, but as I
    explained I don’t see how you’d only be concious for 15 seconds when people
    can go without oxygen for 2 or 3 times that length of time.
