85-Year Old Man Chases Armed Robbers From Betting Shop

This is the security cam footage from a Bar One Racing betting shop in Ireland of an 85-year old man chasing off three burglars carrying hammers and a sawed-off shotgun. The shotgun I understand, but if the next two best weapons in your arsenal are hammers maybe you aren’t ready for a crime spree just yet. The old man even holds his own against one of the Hammer Bros, and I’d argue he’s just as strong if not stronger than that guy. I strongly suggest these degenerates consider a different career path, because it doesn’t look like the whole criminal mastermind thing is going to work out for them. Maybe they should do something more outdoorsy. Like what’s it called when you help grow plants? “A farmer?” No…. “A horticulturist?” Fertilizer — these guys should be fertilizer. Continue reading

Real Military Flamethrowers Vs Elon Musk’s ‘Not A Flamethrower’

This is a video from the folks at Drivetanks (God I want to so bad!) comparing Elon Musk’s Boring Company ‘Not A Flamethrower’ to real M9 and XM42 flamethrowers. After watching the video it’s pretty safe to assume Musk wasn’t lying when he called his unit Not A Flamethrower, because it very clearly isn’t. I’ve seen candles with more firepower. Fingers crossed I can still get my money back for the Boring Company Not Dynamite I just ordered before it ships. Continue reading

Rick And Morty Opening Theme Reimagined As Anime

This is a video created by French cartoonist Malec reimagining the Rick And Morty title sequence as the opening for an anime show. It’s high quality. Weird, but high quality. “Like a penis shaped diamond.” Do your parents know you’re on the internet? “I’m an adult.” Is that what you tell potential employers during job interviews? “I usually start with a few magic tricks.” You’re hired, we’ll share an office. Continue reading

Video Of A Fire Tornado Attempting To Swallow A Fire Hose

This is a video from a firefighting crew in British Columbia of a 200-foot tall fire tornado trying to swallow their fire hose, and eventually melting it. We get it, God, you’re angry. Not all of us are bad though, some of us are just out here trying to live good lives. “You fought a man in line at the coffee shop this morning for trying to pay for your drink.” I’m not your pity-case, Mr. Pay It Forward! “Then what happened?” I realized I’d forgotten my wallet. “Sooooo…” So I chased him down and demanded the money after all. “Wow, you really are the salt of the earth.” I am the red pepper flakes of the universe.

Parents in South Korea Are Hiring Intimidating “Uncles” to Protect Their Kids from School Bullies

South Korean parents are increasingly turning to “uncle service” providers to make sure their children don’t have to put up with bullying in schools. Such services are apparently a pricey but efficient alternative to having schools handle the matter.

Earlier this month, Korean media reported on the growing business of leasing intimidating uncles to either protect children from bullies, gather evidence of bullying for filing an official complaint with the school, or even contacting the bully’s parents at their workplace. Most companies offer different packages to meet clients’ needs, and business is reportedly booming. But while many South Koreans view this type of service in a positive light, there are those who see it as simply answering bullying with another type of bullying. Continue reading
