If you love all things extreme, then MayContainNuts.com may be just the Web site for you. Created in 2008, MayContainNuts.com is a social networking site unlike any other -- because it's exclusively for fans of extreme sports [source: Pree]. Whether you're a hardcore kite surfer, jet skier, skydiver or snowboarder, MayContainNuts.com can help you connect with other extreme-sports nuts [source: MayContainNuts.com].

Described as a fusion between social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook and the video-sharing Web site YouTube, MayContainNuts.com lets users create and watch videos featuring their favorite extreme sports, post comments and vote on video clips [source: MayContainNuts.com].

Much like members of other social networking sites, members of MayContainNuts.com can "poke," "high five," and "wink" at their friends to get their attention -- they can also "Throw a Moose" and "slap" their connections if it so moves them [source: Pree]. The Web site even has its own online shop, so members can buy clothing, products and gear for their extreme sport of choice [source: Pree]. And if you need a new skydiving helmet, some BMX equipment and a pair of killer shades, you may be able to find them all in one place with just the click of a mouse.

The purpose of MayContainNuts.com is to bring together the extreme-sports world, one fan at a time. And with more than 21 extreme sports featured on the Web site, it's well on its way. Is your adrenaline pumping yet? Check out the next page to find out how you can join MayContainNuts.com.

If you're looking for a way to connect with other extreme-sports nuts just like yourself, then MayContainNuts.com may be the social networking site for you. MayContainNuts.com was created to help build a community among individuals with a passion for extreme sports.

Because MayContainNuts.com is a social networking site, users will have to become a member in order to fully participate. Users can register on the site by clicking the "Sign Up" link at the top of the MayContainNuts.com homepage. Registration requires potential members to enter their name, sex, birth date and e-mail address, and they must create a username and password to begin [source: MayContainNuts.com].
