A white woman claiming she wanted to spread awareness of how Asians are portrayed in Hollywood decided to kiss some random Japanese men she found on the street without their consent. Riiiiiight. I’d be tripping if some strange woman came up and stuck her mouth on me. I don’t know what diseases she might have. Can you even imagine if a dude did this? Cops would be called immediately. It would be called attempted rape, especially in today’s culture.
Senators defenceman Marc Methot suffered a gruesome injury to a finger on his left hand in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. With 5:22 left in the first period and both teams playing 4-on-4, Methot skated up ice with the puck and was slashed on the hands by Penguins captain Sidney Crosby before shooting the puck into the corner. Methot removed his glove following the slash to reveal a bloody finger and skated off the ice straight to the dressing room. The tip of Methot’s finger was hanging by a thread.

Watch pro-rally driver (Will Orders) doing the exact opposite, driving a video game. From initial first impressions and comments on the video, Orders has left the entire internet was left with mouths agape.
You might remember him as the precocious 18-year-old who won Cape Fear in 2016. The son of Hawaiian big wave surfer Kirk Bierke, Russell never had a choice, from a young age it was always charge hard or charge home, and that’s just what he’s done. Growing up on Australia’s South Coast meant growing up on a diet of raw ocean energy, the Pacific endlessly broadsiding his hometown of Ulladulla and its plethora of shallow reef slabs and deep water bombies with swell…and it doesn’t get much gnarlier than a big ‘ol day at his local shallow reef slab Shipstern Bluff.
Remember how you owned a skateboard when you were nine, and now you kind of still feel like after a few warm-up ollies you’d be ripping again? A local barney takes a couple hits before @ishodwair steps in and shows us how it’s done!
BASE jumping is widely regarded as the most dangerous sport in the world. When a jumper adds a little creativity to danger, you get the phenomenon we call “blade running”. Once the jumper got to the top of this 200ft wind turbine, he made the walk of his life. After getting his bearings, he calmly yet gingerly stepped onto the stalled, but still movable blade.

“This is the day I’ve been waiting for! I have been drifting for 13 years and I finally got a ride in a winning team in a winning car. I will have a lot more content to share with you guys as I make the transition into a professional driver from privateer like I was before. There will be some big changes, but overall I will be able to concentrate on my driving and make more content for you dudes and dudettes.” – @chelseadenofa.

Technical features over technical tricks is the mandate for McMorris and Toutant’s new project, ‘Uncorked’. Mark McMorris and Sebastien Toutant are two of the best in the business of slopestyle snowboarding. They can go bigger and flip faster than us mere mortals will ever be able to, and they each have a bag o’ tricks that go deep enough to keep them at the top of podiums around the world.
In the middle of rural Kansas, armed security patrol the entrance to a doomsday bunker that’s reserved for the wealthy elite and sales are booming.
