Always entertaining.

A few of those are genuine "ooooops" moments and not the work of people greatly overstimating their abilities or just being idiots. That being said, those being idiots? Never stops being amusing to see them.

But this yoohoo hitting an on-fire WD-40 is even better:


Even better in slow-mo.

i had to pause and regroup after the first clip...

I liked the snowboarder who tried to grind on the park bench.

Idiot enough to try and fail AGAIN.

this is the one redeeming quality about Youtube that I enjoy. Idiots at work.

That was unpleasant although I did like the ski jumper (or snow boarder) that went smack into the pile of snow leaving only a silhouette just as though it were a cartoon.

Well, the people wearing helmets at the time clearly aren't all that stupid. Surely some of these people are professionals who were just having a bad day. Like the plane runway crash. Eh, it happens. Or that guy doing the thing where he was rolling on the front wheel on a motorcycle. To have even set that up at all to fail in the way that he did must take considerable skill, and the guys who can do that trick flawlessly had to start somewhere...

That made my nuts hurt....
and I don't even have nuts

This one should have been on there.

AstralRunner: Surely some of these people are professionals who were just having a bad day.

yep a few are, like the guy on inline skates who goes flying into the seats, that is an all time great "ooops" moment, stuff just went wrong.

that wd-40 explosion is hilarious, thanks for the link.

OH fark! fark!

RoyBatty: I did like the ski jumper (or snow boarder) that went smack into the pile of snow leaving only a silhouette just as though it were a cartoon.

Same here. I LOLed.

Knucklepopper: But this yoohoo hitting an on-fire WD-40 is even better:

At least he remembered to stop, drop and roll after flailing around for a second.

that superbike jump was amazing
2007-05-21 12:35:23 AM  
god I love being human .. we're such idiots.. flinging ourselves into all kinds of things...
2007-05-21 12:56:57 AM  
Oh man, all of them were haha-oh moments, except the jet. That one is just plain scary. Wonder the details on that one?

Complete with discussion and link to accident report.

It was a 1980 test flight of an MD-80 (the first MD-80 too, if I understand the report). 7 people on board. 6 walked away. 1 limped away with a broken ankle. This happened at Edwards.

The pilot didn't recognize his aircraft was not in a stabilized descent, and MD didn't have any procedure on the test that assigned any of the other six on board to monitor the sink rate. The sink rate got too big, which the pilot recognized, but he didn't recognize how big the problem wasa.

The aircraft was repaired and used to as a test device.

Wow, what bad luck or something, the second plane in that series also ate it:


N1002G, the second DC-9-80 series prototype took off from Yuma, AZ at 18:20 for a certification test flight to demonstrate that the plane could be landed safely with a complete failure of its hydraulic systems. The crew were to fly a low approach, go around and another approach with a full stop landing. Both approaches to be flown without hydraulic pressure. The second approach was rejected at about 800 feet agl because the warning light for "parking brakes set" was lit. The aircraft was positioned for another approach to runway 21R. The aircraft touched down at around 175 knots just past the arresting cable, 1,831 feet beyond the landing threshold of the runway. Reverse was used before touchdown of the nosegear. The aircraft yawed and ground looped and ran off the right side of the runway. After the aircraft left the pavement, the left main gear collapsed and the right main gear and the nose gear separated from the aircraft. The aircraft came to rest on its lower fuselage about 50 feet beyond the right edge. Two 50-ton cranes then tried to lift the aircraft; one of the cranes broke and fell on top of the fuselage.

this reminds me: I'm on trauma call tomorrow.

/Attention stupid people of Oregon and SW Washington...stay home and DO NOTHING from 7am tomorrow until 7am Wednesday. Thank you.
