It has happened to us all. Check out the somewhat unorthodox, but effective solution.


Kilian Martin dominates his skateboards

There have been a ton of skate videos on the intertubes over the last few years, which makes sense—after all, what better medium to share a series of short, but impressive movements than the internet, which loves short, impressive things.

In a video field crowded with impressive skate moves, Kilian Martin still manages to rise above and deliver some jaw dropping clips.


Soccer team tries to murder ref

This is about a year and a half old, but watching refs flip out, knock out players, then run for their lives never gets old. Perhaps even better than the flying kick the ref dodges, is the fact that he manages to outrun an entire soccer team with ease.
