There's taking your job seriously and then there's laying in wait underwater so you can grab ahold of a an illegal fishing line, get reeled in and scare the crap out of poachers. For some other weird history, here's the very fast story of the first soldier to take way too many military grade amphetamines.
Say what you will about the President, but there's no denying that his Twitter habits have given us hours of entertainment. His latest Twitter escapade was regarding Time Magazine's 'Person of the Year' issue. On Saturday President Trump tweeted "Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named "Man (Person) of the Year," like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" Parodies from comedians such as Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Billy Eichner began pouring in, along with riffs on New Yorker cartoons. Here are some of our favorites.
And on a side note, here are some of our favorite tremendous Trump memes that are nearly unbelievable.
Over his 26-year-career Luke Aikins has landed over 18,000 jumps. Aikins has worked as a stuntman in Ironman 3 and Godzilla. Thing is, this jump was a whole different story from the get-go; this time Aikins had every intention to take the dive with no parachute, wearing nothing but the clothes on his back.
Unfortunately, the SAG-AFTRA Union voiced safety concerns and they weren't going to allow their members to work on the show unless Aikins wore a parachute...(booooo)
So, Aikins conceded, donned the parachute, and as fate would have it, a last second break in the restrictions -- while he was in the damn air, no less -- allowed for him to complete his dive without the parachute! He took it off immediately, and boom. Just plain old, balls to the wall, epic.
Sparky doesn't give a f*ck about you and your lightning bolts Zeus.
Everything about this is epic. This outrageously lucky bison from Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa survived being struck by lightning in 2013.
At this point we're unclear whether or not Sparky's spar with the afterlife bestowed him any supernatural gifts, but seriously, stay tuned.
From the video description:
We like to have fun at our school. So, after several school closings due to snow and cold, we recorded this call to parents to see if we could make them laugh. I think we succeeded. Boone County Schools in Kentucky is one of the nation's finest. And, our awesome parents deserve this chuckle. By the way, if this video can gain us some exposure, AND you know of someone willing to help us out with some cash for technology, we DESPERATELY need it. Ellen? Rosie? Oprah? Jimmy Kimmel? We love our jobs - I hope you can tell!
