Dec 17 2010Drunk Man Kills Shark By Jumping On Head

jaws-jump.jpg

Dragan Stevic (who you can probably already tell is a badass because his name's pronounced f***in' DRAGON), a wasted Serbian tourist (is there any other way to vacation?!) at Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh managed to take down a shark that had already killed one person and injured four others in the seaside tourist town by landing on it after drunkenly throwing himself off a high-dive. OMG -- PLEASE tell me you teach classes in heroism!

"Dragan climbed on the jumping board, told me to hold his beer and simply ran to jump. There was no time for me to react or to try to stop him, he just went for it"..."Dragan jumped high and plunged down to the sea, but didn't make as much splash as we thought he would"...


The reason could be because Dragan Stevic ended up jumping straight on the shark which was lurking near the beach, probably looking for its next victim. Dragan had nailed it right in the head, killing it instantly. The Egyptian police found the shark washed out on the beach that morning (pictured above).

At the moment, the fearless hero is in a hospital recovering from alcohol poisoning. After Dragan gets well, he will get a chance to have some more drinks as the resort had awarded the Serb tourist with a free vacation for his heroic deed.

*tearing Harry Potter poster off wall* Sorry Hair, but somebody's got a new favorite hero. Yeah, a real one. Plus his name rhymes with Dragon. Powers? He doesn't need any, he just gets shitcanned all the time. *GW's eyes turn into little hearts*

Sharks Wary of Drunk Serbs [mina]

Thanks to clarazinet and derzulu, who both know the best way to dispatch a shark is a well-placed blow on the nose.

Anyone have any idea what type of shark this is?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oceanic_whitetip_shark#Relation_to_humans

Thanks, highchair!

I love this.

Which head? lol

It's actually from a fake article from a Serbian tabloid magazine not unlike the Onion.

he didn't even need a bigger boat!

What a man.

I once jumped off my porch and landed on a budlia. Is that of a similar level of awesome?

damn it Aaron Zichterman!
youve ruined my day

Win. Pure win

Ever notice how lots of great stories start with "Hold My Beer, Watch This..."
Way To Go, Dragan!

...and it's not a Whitetip in the picture. It's a Basking Shark. And it's harmless with ZERO teeth.

no, that is a basking shark, which are filter feeders (eat plankton and invertebrates mostly). this shark killed nobody...

This guy has won the ultamate badass hero of the year award for the rest of 2010 and all of 2011 haha, the best part is that he didnt even see that shark when he jumped off the high dive, and its like ohh you eating omm nom noming people Mr. F@#king shark? Awww HHEEELLLL NO! Well I be jumping on your dam head and we will see how many more pople you eat POW!!! haha great post GW!

hero ?

Hero? Say that to the sharks wife and kids!

I will quickly conclude you are right it is a Basking shark and not a White Tip. After googling it there appears to be no images of beached white tips. But plenty of dead basking sharks that have washed up on the beach.

There fore it must be impossible for it to be a white tip.

Would be cooler if Bill Murray did it

the powa of beers

Further conclusion is that Basking sharks are the mentally handicapped sharks of the shark community. Every picture of them is either with there mouth open so wide like its the end of a porno or dead on a beach.

10 bucks says Fox 'News' will run with the story without fact checking it........

How can you kill sharks by jumping on your head? HTF can anyone jump on their head??

That's not the same shark. The shark he jumped had a frickin laser beam on its head.

Dragan Stevic is Serbian for Chuck Norris.

the first time an act committed while absurdly intoxicated has proven prosperous for more than the one committing the act.

M.Bison LIVES!!

Guess the radioactivity wore off and he's been lured to the bottle like the rest of us...

And it wasn't a shark. It was a sociopathic dolphin dressed as a shark.

Although it is fake... that is a badass story.

This doesn't look like a basking shark the mouth is all wrong

but than again the pics is so shitty it could be

Damn that this is fake. Someone go do this so it isn´t fake anymore.

That is AWESOME.... Awesome to the max..... just sayin

Fonzie did it first. Jump a shark.

I hope this isn't GW's subtle subconscious psychological site symbolism.

@35 I think it is, I think this post means he's going to slowly quit writing geekologie. He feels like he has jumped the shark and wants to quit while he's ahead so let's give him words of encouragement so he'll keep going

Now if only he had landed head first on the shark. but still...damn thats epic

HANCOCK IRL!!!!

lol. GW got owned. this is a story from a Serbian tabloid, specialized in pwning, www.njuz.net :D

They spelled my name wrong. It should actually be D-E-R-I-K not Dragon. They never get it right.

Holy fuck. I'm pretty sure that counts as a super power.

Louis of http://aprettyage.blogspot.com/

It's "shitfaced", not "shitcanned", BTW. "Shitfaced" is getting so drunk you just don''t give a shit and it shows. On your face. "Shitcanned" is when someone gets fired, typically in an unceremonious manner.

BOOM, HEAD SHOT

What's his opinion on swimming with women? Specifically those who have bowed legs. Does he prefer it?

His battle cry is "HOLD MY BEER!" 'nuff said.

Serbs you right, shark!

@46 Haha I see what you did there.

Also, the studio responsible for the next blockbuster "Human" which will hit shark theaters next summer, has not yet confessed they are responsible for the incident, also noting that no human was hurt during the making of the film.

Except the reeeeal truth is that Chuck Norris saved the actor from drowning as he was drinking real alcohol as a joke from the production staff. Chuck had already round-house kicked the shark in the head minutes before. Underwater.

LEEEERRROOYYY JEENNNNKKIIIINNNSSSS!!!

I must be this man's friend.

Translation of the last part of an article on this story, which was added later:
"Njuz.net, 'news in the mirror', the site that originally posted this bizarre story, is known as a web portal which publishes humorous and fictitious stories.

They themselves say that Nujz is a satirical blog, currently without a publisher, and that all the news published Njuz are either invented or used to draw attention to certain phenomenons in the society."

http://www.carolinabeachtoday.com/2009/10/basking-shark-washed-ashore-in.html

Lame, fake story.

Here's the original:
http://www.carolinabeachtoday.com/2009/10/basking-shark-washed-ashore-in.html


One day when you are meandering along the boardwalk with your own special martini you too will think about being a hero and jumping into the abyss. Until that is the abyss claims you.

Let’s hope Dragan keeps this whole sordid adventure to himself…geesh.

'Tis the season for telling tall tales.

Egypt is still in the Northern Hemisphere, right?

Super Mario Seaside! New Version

The worst part is that's a basking shark.
They don't have the teeth to kill, they're filter-feeders.

Macedonian journalism, say hello to "FAIL"

@3, its a dead one.

looks like a basking shark which is not a killer at all. They are rarely caught but are noe to be found washed ashore from time to time after they die

Im a dragon in chinese astrology bitch

that big and bad ass shark i wonder if u got any reward for killin the shark oooo well dinner tonight

Huh... I'm really surprised that no one made a "jumping the shark" joke yet. Odd.

Bwahahahahaha!... this is the funniest thing I've heard in a while.

Sorry but it's an urban legend .... tye urban legend and dragan stevic in google

FAKE
The true: http://www.carolinabeachtoday.com/2009/10/basking-shark-washed-ashore-in.html

All you "basking shark" fags need to STFU. GW didn't say that the shark in the picture is the one in the story.

ITSA ME! MARIO!

@Leonidass: Check the original source before you start projecting your feelings on the rest the online comnudity. If wishes were fishes, amirite

Great article
we love crazy stuff like this at our blog as well

I hope to see more of this guy- I bet he'd give a great interview
thanks for sharing!
Thank you,
Michael

I happen to know exactly what shark that is... it is called a basking shark and its laying on its back in the pic. This shark not only eats plankton/krill and is completely harmless, but it was probably dying since they are never in shallow waters or the surf for that matter. I hate to break it to you guys but he is no more of a badass than a dude who robs a baby

We want Myth Busters to take a shot with this story! Support it!

Njuz.net has released a video game about this heroic act of Dragan Stevic, try it out at their FB page - http://www.facebook.com/njuznet?v=app_7146470109

:)

This definitely calls for a remake of Jaws...

So because Google says its an Urban Legend, you take that as true?
@Thomas

I agree
BASKING shark on picture (look at singular nose)
Harmless
Protected

The story is satirical. The site is a comedy one. Say hallo to IRONY!

:)

Joe, Belgrade, Serbia

I'm really glad this is fake. Felt very bad for the shark. Sharks are beautiful, intelligent creatures, so what if they feed off flabby muffin topping tourists once in a while??

Go shark! ♥

Bwahahaha, it's from njuz.net, the site that has news like "All the ministers in the government of Serbia will be in the 'Farm' reality show" and "Barrack Obama is now put to foster care because it was found out that his parents neglected him when his was 4 years old!" :D
