This is a video of a mountaintop rescue operation conducted by the Oregon Army National Guard, who sent personnel in a tandem-rotor Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter to retrieve a man who climbed to the summit of Mount Hood with the intention of taking his own life by overdosing on pills, as well as the six rescue climbers who were sent to bring him back down alive. By the time the climbers reached the man, warmer temperatures and melting ice preventing a safe return down the mountain, resulting in this helicopter rescue, in which the pilot backs the ass of the massive copter right into the side of the mountain. I can't even imagine what it must be like walking around with balls that big. Also, provided those steel grapefruits don't get in the way, I bet he can parallel park a car with the precision of a watchmaker.
NECA (who purchased Chia Pet last year) has just released some pictures of upcoming Chia Pet models, including Rick and Morty, The Golden Girls, Slimer, Dustin from Stranger Things, Gizmo, a Predator (who could almost pass for the Demogorgon), and Baby Groot. Obviously, they'll perfect for a white elephant/dirty Santa gift exchange gift, and that's just about all they're perfect for. "I don't know, I'd buy the Rick and Morty ones." Oh thank God, yes I want both of those and two each of all the Golden Girls, four to grow and four to keep gem mint 10 in the packaging.
This is a video of a litter of Jack Russell Terrier puppies doing battle against a RoboRaptor robotic dinosaur toy. I'm happy to report the puppies showed great courage and successfully incapacitate the robot, rendering it helpless on its side. Good job, pups! When reached for comment about the battle, my dog said she would have done way better, but she's also a little sass-factory and has to make everything about her. "I wonder where she gets that from." I'm not going to point any fingers, but I am inconspicuously nodding my head at my girlfriend right now.
This is a short video of a flight attendant coming to the rescue of a man who's determined to smash his carry-on luggage into the overhead bin with the wrong spatial orientation using a brute force approach. Obviously, if you were on this flight, this is the last man you'd want to see seated in an emergency exit row.
Keep going for the video while I renew my vows to never fly again.
This is a video from Nanyang City in China's Henan Province on a 100-degree day of a man trying to cross a street and his feet repeatedly getting stuck to the asphalt while traffic goes around him. That does not look like a fun time, and I'd be pissed if it ruined my new Jordans. I mean, if I owned a pair of Jordans, which I do not because they're so expensive. The most I've ever paid for a pair of shoes is $60, and those were dress shoes to wear to interviews and weddings. "You mean the most I've ever paid." Dang it mom, why are always trying to embarrass me in front of my friends? "Those people aren't your friends." Yes they are too! Back me up. Well? Don't worry about all answering at once if that's what you're afraid of.
Keep going for the video while I crank the A/C until my dad yells at me.
Because safety dead last, a driver in King's Lynn in Norfolk, England was recently pulled over and police discovered he'd been driving while sitting on a metal bucket (wrong kind of bucket seat bro) and steering the car with a pair of locking pliers instead of a wheel. He also had a flat tire and a sense of adventure.
The battered car, which also had no front wing, bumper, headlights and a flat tyre was pulled over in King's Lynn in Norfolk.
Norfolk's roads policing unit tweeted pictures of "the most un-roadworthy car" and said there were "too many offences to mention".
Police said the driver has been reported to court.
"Yes this was driven on a road and yes he was sitting on a bucket and steering with a pair of mole grips," officers wrote, as they posted pictures of the vehicle in Saddlebow Road.
What the hell is wrong with people? This is the sort of thing I'd expect to see in a comedy movie, not in real life. Steering with a pair of vice grips -- that's insane. He could have killed somebody. He could have killed everybody. We're lucky to be alive.
This is an hour compilation of video game commercials from the 1980's. There aren't really any Nintendo ones though, they're all for like Commodore and Atari and Intellivision games. The 80's were weird. I didn't watch the whole thing, but I don't really remember any of the commercials I did see. Of course my dad says I act like I was born yesterday, so I might have been, which sucks because that means my next birthday is forever away.
