The amount of effort it takes to fail is the same amount of effort it takes to succeed as far as the mind is concerned. It is your responsibility to provide it with the right seeds of thought.

More inspiration after the jump….

I never realised this actress was tattooed. I like the Windows 95 logo, the troll doll, and the Steve Urkel and Stefan Urquelle on her shoulder blades, which “represents the duality of man.”

Watch the interview after the jump…

This humorous poster series takes some of the most common, everyday lies we tell ourselves and hear from others, and bluntly translates them into the unequivocal truth.

This is the most incredible catch I have ever seen. New Zealand player Bevan Small catches the ball in the air while crossing over the boundary rope, before hitting the ground he throws the ball to Michael Mason who takes the catch. Bevan Small is only 19-years old. Unfortunately, his team, the Central Stags, lost the game by eight wickets.

Some facts are indisputable and this is one of them, every house needs some kind of built in slide.

Now for the most important question, is there a way to reverse slide back up through the house?

How to get Banned from Summernats!

Summernats is Australia’s largest car festival held once a year. It can get pretty bloody wild at times, but that’s why we love it! Below is a video of a man being banned from the most recent Summernats held a few days ago. Read the video information to understand what is happening:

“What seems to have happened is that the driver Steve Nogas was told he was disqualified for a reason stemming back to his qualifying burnout (disobeying a fire mashal), he forced his car through a group of officials and on to the track, and after the burnout he was escorted from the track and his car towed away.”

Could have been handled a little better from both sides, but forcing your way on to the track is definitely a crazy thing to do. Who’s side are you on?

Plenty more after the jump…

For anyone that wanted to bungee jump in the near future, please look away.While in Africa on New Year’s Eve, Australian Erin Langworthy and some of her friends decided to go bungee jumping over the Zambezi River. But everything went horribly wrong when Erin’s cord snapped during her jump, which was all caught on video.

Luckily, she survived after blacking out and started rolling down the rapids. Somehow Langworthy was able to untie herself as the rope got caught on the rocks.

“It was quite scary because a couple of times the rope actually got caught on some rocks or debris. I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface”, Erin Said.

Kelly McGarry took a trip to Seattle to ride some amazing trails with locals Nate Berkheimer and Guy Marsh. The spot featured in the video is epic, and shredded by mountain bikers and bmxers alike.

Thrasher’s King of the Road enters its 9th episode as the ongoing roadtrip offers just the right amount of skating and lifestyle.

With four participating teams including Nike SB, Dekline, Lakai and Vans, episode 9 focuses on the exploits of Nike SB as highlights include a session with a Juggalette, a little magic from Crockette and of course the customary to-do list of zany stuff.

That old guy may have called the sheriff, but he didn’t call the deputy…

One of the most secretly influential MCs of the last decade, Dizzee Rascal, has released an official mixtape to showcase his label’s talent.

The tape avoids the mainstream-aimed electro-pop and is filled with raps, mostly ones that are menacingly fast. Dizzee’s name is tellingly absent from the mixtape cover, though he appears on 14 of 22 tracks.

Almost nine years since the release of his first album, Boy in da Corner, his role here is essentially that of the marquee veteran, confident in himself but graceful enough to pass the mic to his team’s far hungrier supporting cast of Scrufizzer and the Newham Generals’ Footsie and D Double E.

For once the “It’s not what it looks like” excuse is actually the truth. Innocent men looking for a new shirt get more than they bargained for when their wives and girlfriends notice some red lipstick on their neck. Things go from bad to worse when a sexy girl comes out of the change room with a satisfied look on her face.

This is what good friends do, I think. A man was attempting to drive home drunk with his daughter in the car, when a friend intervened. He was attempting to talk sense into the man, but that was not enough. To make the man come to his senses, he needed to be punched in the face and then choked out. Would you do the same for one of your mates?

From the TV show Toddlers and Tiaras comes Alana. Her catch phrase is, ‘A dollar makes me holler, honey boo-boo!’ That about sums the video up. The soda-addicted beauty queen from Georgia is dubbed as the ‘Most Hilarious Toddlers & Tiaras Contestant Ever,’ but that show is still far too messed up for me to laugh about it.
