I've seen a few of those but I wish I knew the story behind the guy messing with the DJ's board.  The look on the DJ's face is hilarious.

I like the one with the glasses. Maybe it's photoshopped. Who knows? It still made me laugh.

Nope. Damp squib.
A squib is a small, explosive firework which won't go off if it's damp.
Damp squib = failure.

Eh, I'd give the kid a pass for being oblivious because he's a kid.  What I wouldn't give would be any more baseball tickets so he can do the same thing he does on the couch at home.

It looks like the bat would hit the guy's arm which would then hit the kid's forehead.

Still a teaching moment, but not nearly as brutal as it might have been. Good job, dad.

He's got the force and Jedi mind tricks and he's loafing off taking in a baseball game?  He has more important things he could be doing.

I had that happen in a college archery class. I honestly thought my bow had exploded. Wasn't hurt, and I got the whole class's attention.

Then there was the time I nearly took off half my right tit. Owie.

I have known mechanics to employ this method to change skids in the field, where they don't have the lifts and shoring to do it like they would in the hanger.  They have low skids and high skids (meant for landing in rougher terrain) and they just fly the helicopter from one to the other, then bolt on the new set.

Squib--small explosive device, usually used to set off something bigger.  And if it's happened to a properly trained blaster they're now very nervous because they have to deal with the armed charge.

I'm honestly pretty impressed with the fall recovery skills there - she takes a pretty good hit and pops right back up.  Of course it's often right around then that the actual injury kicks in and you fall right back down, but still - good trash-ass ninja skills, poor life direction skills.

Re: the baseball bat going for the kid in the stands.
Five times I've been at hockey games and had the person in front, in back, to the right and left, and a person walking past me to get to her seat get pucked in the head Each time the puck was within 2 feet of my head when someone else did something to put themselves in the path of the puck, excepting the time I bent down to pick my beer up off the floor by my feet and the puck sailed ove my head to hit the mother of 3 kids behind me right in the mouth. That was the worst. Still, wasn't my fault. I feel sorry for her to this day but it wasn't my fault. I had no idea that puck would come whizzing over the plexiglass right at me (and her) when i bent over to pick up my beer. Says on the ticket it can happen. You buy your seat, you takes your chances. I still think the ass was the guy behind her who kept the puck that smeared her lip gloss. He should've given it to one of her kids when the paramedics dragged her away.
Yet, of the literally hundreds of live baseball games I've been to (1994 was my best year: 125 live games in the SoCal area between Spring Training and Major & Minor leagues - Go, my beloved Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, go!), a ball has never so much as come within 100' of me in my 64 years of baseball. SIgh.
