New Seek Discomfort Summer Drop: live for only 72hrs!

This week after Death Valley hit the hottest temperature ever recorded... We decided to go and experience what 130F or 56C felt like... Both the best and worst idea we've ever had.

Does anyone read the description? I never really know to be honest. Well either way, this is Thomas and I'm a bit bored writing this so I'll just keep typing random things and see if anybody will notice. Conor was really upset that we kept him farting in the video so please ignore that part (or don't). Anyways, hope you liked the video we're actually pretty stoked with how it came out!

Check out Conor's channel here and tell him we sent you it'll make him very happy!

    It’s worth noting that what you see on both Ammar and Thomas’ shoulder is a GPS tracking our location at all times (which the rescue team and people at home are receiving). It can also text anyone immediately if anything is needed. The rescue team, although they were joking around in the video, drove back and forth on the road to keep a visual on us. They kept us always in sight and were ready to come help if anything was needed 🙏 much love and a great week y’all

    i experienced 128 f in Death Valley!!! to say it wasn't fun would be an understatement, glad i'm still alive to talk about it!!! that day, i'd left Vegas at 1 a.m., it was still 103!!! in Baker at 3 a.m., was still 103 ran into some Grateful Deadheads at 6 a.m. (coming from Dead show in Vegas), we partied- by the time i got back on the road 11 a.m., temp was above 122!!! my motorcycle was glowing white hot, had to stop at a rest area where the only shade was a trellis near the water fountain!!! the Deadheads showed up and we partied, while the reest area filled w/people whose cars were overheating- hoses and such were even melting!!! finally pulled away at 7 p.m. when was down to 110

    I live near Death Valley and experienced 130F. When you breathe in the hot air, your throat and lungs begin to burn . Night time is no relief because at midnight the temperature could be 112. . It gets so hot that one could fry an egg on the cement or bake a cake in your car. Central A/C is a must or you risk dying.

    You guys keep saying "this is dangerous" and I'm just here to say you still aren't selling it haha. I grew up with regular summer temps in my desert hometown of 118 F and in Nevada have experienced 121 F...(not even the hottest in Southwestern USA) and you can literally die. Cars break down from overheating and your drinks go from ice cold to almost boiling in minutes. Heat exhaustion is REAL...and it feels like death. You experienced 133 F, now let's imagine the hot places of the world without air conditioning and modern comforts...your body can take a long time to condition itself to an environment like that and even still you can die. Don't do this for fun I'm telling you. Especially Americans😂

    56 is not recognized as a valid record by the scientific community. 54 is the current world record (held by Furnace Creek USA and al-Mitribah Kuwait). Since Furnace Creek is lower in altitude than al-Mitribah, the latter is actually the hottest recognized spot on earth.

    I live in one of the coldest capital cities in Australia, Melbourne and it got to 47ºc (117ºf) one year Feb 7th 2009. The entire state almost burnt to the ground. It was horrific. It doesn’t get this hot in the Australian Outback either the highest temp recorded in AU is 50.7ºc or 123ºf What I liked about this is that so many people always talk about hypothermia kills. When you said this is worse than running in your undies naked in a Polish blizzard. I felt that because I used to work outdoors and began to despise summer now I’m older . One guy was on the verge of heatstroke.

    The stupidest and by far the dumbest thing I've ever done was go for a hike in the Golden Canyon Pass in Death Valley on a solo road trip without telling anyone. I went on the hike around 11 am despite signs everywhere saying not to hike around noon. I saw no one out there. My phone overheated and wouldn't turn on (not that I had signal anyways), and the singular bottle of water I had with me that I was rationing like crazy actually hurt to drink because it became so hot. I walked until it felt like I was going to vomit and my head was pounding. I became concerned for my health at the point (crazy, right?) and turned back. I lost all track of time. I became delirious and very light-headed. I wanted to sleep, but I felt that I'd die if I did and my body wouldn't be found for a week. I kept trudging on. The entire time my body was hot, yet I wasn't sweating. I started singing to my self as it became harder to put one foot in front of another. I made it back to my car thankfully and downed some water, but I felt very disoriented. I drove back to the visitor's center after waiting for a bit (at like 2 or 3...idk). I drank two bottles of water and one bottle of Gatorade before my body began pissing sweat from every pore. My face and body were the definition of red. I probably looked like I found God out in the desert when I was in there. From talking with others (and being told that I am an idiot), I was probably on the verge of a heat stroke. It was the closest I've ever been to death (ironic that it was in Death Valley). 5 heat strokes out of 10...almost died but makes for a good story
