Raining Food starts cheerily enough with a few Apple Jacks bouncing off Steve Kardynal’s head as he mugs for the camera. Shown in slow motion, the cereal is quickly followed by a cascade of milk, obscene amounts of ketchup, mustard, hot dogs, buns and much, much more. As Kardynal gets gradually obliterated by the torrent of food running down his head — meatballs, tootsie pops and Texas toast are all on the “menu” – his expression shifts from glee to despair and back again when dessert finally comes raining down.
Buriram City is located in the eponymous northeast province of Thailand. While the local residents look forward to the New Year’s festival (held in the middle of April) as a chance to cool down during the hottest month of the year, one local politician was fed up by the inevitable destruction caused by young gang members year after year. So he gave them an ultimatum: at the opening ceremony of the event, he declared, “This time, whoever disrupts the festival will be forced to fight three rounds with a pro Muay Thai fighter.”
“I’ve been out all night waiting to confront the guy that has been terrorising our neighbourhood for weeks now. He runs his snow machines, and most recently his car (with no muffler) up and down the street, revving it as loud as he can all night long. Tonight he woke me up 3 times before 2:30 am. This has been going on for weeks, so I knew I had to do something. There are a lot of older folks in this neighborhood that are sickly and need their rest, and a lot of younger folks with little kids too. This guy has no respect for anyone. What you will witness is what happened when I confronted him.” – Reed G
This is the moment a pair of daredevil skydivers set a new base jump world record by leaping 2,717 feet off the tallest building in the world. Veteran base jumpers Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet prepared for their record breaking leap from Dubai’s Burj Khalifa tower by spending time up a Swiss mountain to acclimatise to the altitude. The men are not the first to base jump from the top of the tower – which is roughly twice the height of New York’s Empire State Building – but they had a special platform built to add an extra 500 feet, enabling them to break the world record!
Road racing is always dangerous. Not only do you put your life in danger, but also of others on road. Time and again, we encounter mental videos on the internet where people show their racing skills on public roads. The footage after the jump is one such example. Watch it and leave your thoughts in our comment section. Shout out to Rafael Dantas for the submission.
