Technology is supposed to make life easier, and in this case, it only made things worse.

A TV show in Norway called “Golden Goal” strapped headsets onto some soccer players so that they could only see a bird’s-eye-view of the field.

And the result is absolutely hilarious.

It’s not exactly the most exciting game in the world, but watching them try to navigate around and connect with the ball is pretty entertaining.

The players stick their arms out like a horde of zombies and hobble around just as slow.

At one point the goalie just lays down to make it easier to block any shots, which was the smartest thing he could have done.

Way to use your braaaaaaains…

FMX biker Josh Sheehan made history this week as the first motocross rider in the world to complete a triple backflip.

He performed the stunt at Pastranaland in Maryland on April 28, and he has pent the last year preparing for it.

Travis Pastrana, who owns the park, was the first to perform a double backflip back in 2006.

A guy got owned by a woman with bigger muscles than him at a Philadelphia Soul game last week.

During a “Flex Cam” break, the camera pans around the crowd and let’s the arena football fans show off their guns.

At one point towards the end it landed on a both a guy and a girl, and the guy quickly stood up to show-off his arms.

Little did he know that there was a much more muscular woman behind him about to steal the gun show.

“You’ve been stoned, my brother!” says the announcer.

The 2015 Austin Marathon was held this past weekend, and the final stretch for one of the runners was both inspiring and pretty hard to watch.

Kenya’s Hyvon Ngetich was leading the pack for most of the race, but near the finish line her body started to give up.

She ended up crawling the rest of the way (about 50 yards), even refusing to use a wheelchair offered by race officials.

“For the last two kilometers, I don’t remember,” said Ngetich. “Finish line, I have no idea.”

Despite the struggle, she still ended up getting 3rd place, and the race director offered her the same amount of money as the second place finisher.

“You ran the bravest race and crawled the bravest crawl I have ever seen in my life,” he said. “You have earned much honor, and I am going to adjust your prize money, so you get the same prize money you would have gotten if you were second.”

You can watch all 4.5 minutes of her finish below.

Here’s a little bit of inspiration for the day from an unlikely source.

This 84-year old woman may not be exactly sure how to bowl (or what bowling is for that matter) but she manages to get a strike on her very first try.

Watch as the entire room celebrates her accomplishment with a standing ovation.

Real Madrid player and underwear model Cristiano Ronaldo became slightly less ridiculously good looking last week and kicked a soccer ball around with a clueless kid in the streets of Madrid.

He wore a shaggy wig with fake mustache/beard, sunglasses and a baggy sweatsuit, and he carried a blue backpack. Look… he’s just like us!

The two played juggled the ball around a bit without drawing any attention.

He eventually removed his disguise, revealing his true identity to the boy and everyone else in the street who immediately pull out their phones to take pictures.

Before walking away, he gave the boy a hug and signed a ball for him.

It doesn't take much for a cat to be amused.

This guy just needs a little ball on a string, and he'll be busy for hours.

Watch him play a solo game of mid-air ping pong using only his paw as a paddle.
