Madness. I mean - huh?

Seen over at Captain Ranty's a few days ago, and I can't get the images out of my head. This is so utterly bizarre that it defies categorisation. Watch and be baffled.


  1. I think that has to be best candidate for the WTF trophy.

    It's not even as though 72 Virgins were on offer.

  2. I wonder if it actually the same 72 every time. I mean, 1,000 martyrs, 72,000 virgins - where are they going to get that many from? Certainly not round here.

  3. I still can't quite believe my eyes.

    Seriously, what is wrong with these people? I think it was pure luck that that steel plate didn't slice his head off. And that the falling sledgehammer didn't brain anyone on the way down.

    Still, you've gotta have fun while you're young, right?


    PS-thanks for the link.

  4. You're more than welcome, Cap'n. We used to dare each other to do 'dangerous' things like throwing firworks at each other, and making banger guns out of old copper tube. By these standards, we were rank amateurs. This makes even Jackass look like Norman Normal on a quiet picnic.

  5. "We used to dare each other to do 'dangerous' things...."

    Sodium Chlorate + sugar? [Before they banned weedkiller!]

    Potassium Chlorate & Icing Sugar?

    Calcium Chloride in a Corona bottle 1/2 full with water; screw the lid back on; run like buggery.

    Oh happy days.

  6. Ooops - Calcium Carbide, not Calcium Chloride.

  8. Manually-operated bomb attached to a really short stick...it doesn't take a lot of imagination to work out a possible downside there.

    Seems to be quite a popular pastime, though, wherever it actually is. Wonder if there's some kind of a scoring system?

  9. Until the end I assumed that the hammer was going to be thrown at the "enemy".....

  10. Heh. Just bizarre. I have no idea where it is, what they are doing, or why. I'm glad I don't know these things.
