What’s More Impressive? The Beefcake in the Foreground, or the Old Dude in the Background?

Some guy who’s in crazy shape posted a video where he does handstand push-ups while balancing on a bunch of dumbbells that are stacked ten feet high. But it’s mostly a hit online because of what’s going on in the background.

He’s in the middle of a gym, and there’s an old, white-haired guy shooting free throws behind him. He takes five shots in 40 seconds, and never misses.

Four Things You Learned About Driving That Are Wrong

Four Things You Learned About Driving That Are Wrong

We found a list online of things you learned about driving that are wrong. And with most of them, it’s because the technology in cars has gotten better. Here are the top four . . .

  1.  Don’t drive with your hands at 10 and 2. It made more sense in the 50s when a lot of cars didn’t have power steering. But turning the wheel is a lot easier now. And because of airbags, it’s actually safer to keep your hands at 8 and 4 now.
  2.  Don’t pump the brakes to keep them from locking up. Again, it only makes sense if you’re in a really old car, because anti-lock brakes do it for you now. If you’ve ever hit the brakes and felt them vibrate, that’s what’s happening.
  3.  Don’t pump the gas if your car won’t turn over. It used to help when cars had carburetors, but there were fuel-injection systems in most cars by the 1980s. So now it doesn’t do any good.
  4.  Don’t ride the brakes while you’re going over a speed bump. That doesn’t mean you should go over them at full speed . . . you should slow down BEFORE you get to a speed bump.

If you hit the brakes while you’re going over one, it makes your car lunge forward, so it’s harder on your shocks and you feel the impact more.

It’s Official . . . Selfies Have Killed More People This Year Than Sharks

It’s Official . . . Selfies Have Killed More People This Year Than Sharks

Selfies Have Killed More People This Year Than Sharks

It’s official: Selfies have killed more people this year than SHARKS. So SUCK IT, shark-haters! (???)

A couple Japanese tourists slipped while they were taking a selfie on some stairs at the Taj Mahal this week. One of them broke his leg, and the other guy hit his head . . . lost consciousness . . . and DIED.

Mashable.com crunched the numbers, and that brings total selfie deaths this year to TWELVE. Four of them were people who fell, and the next highest cause of death involves trains.

That also includes a guy in August who got gored during the running of the bulls . . . the guy in July whose selfie stick was hit by LIGHTNING . . . the Russian woman who accidentally shot herself in May while posing with a gun . . .

And two Russian guys in January who posed with a live GRENADE. There have already been more selfie deaths this year than all of last year. And it’s only September.

As far as shark-related deaths, there have only been EIGHT this year. It just SEEMS like sharks are more dangerous, because of all the media coverage.

So this seems inappropriate . . . but apparently makeup companies are now tweaking their formulas to make you look BETTER in selfies.
