Japanese water skier gets hit in crotch by jumping fish【Video】

1 Comment and 3 Shares

Four second video shows a true one-in-a-million shot.

In these bleak days of escalating military tensions and Frieza babies, we would all use a good laugh. And what more universal path to laughter is there than watching a guy get hit in the nuts by something?

It’s a tried and tested formula that has been carrying America’s Funniest Home Videos for the past 28 years. With so many groin shot videos, it’s easy to assume we’ve seen it all, but not so fast. We now present to you: Water skier gets hit in the crotch by a jumping fish.

The video was posted to Twitter by Miroku of the Waseda Waterski Team who is also the unfortunate gentleman in the clip.

It was a fairly sizable fish, and must have smarted as it collided head-first into Miroku’s nether-regions. However, as a result he has truly taken one for world by giving us all a laugh.

The tweet has racked up over 70,000 likes as of this writing and comments have come in several languages, all conveying the universal sentiment of “oooooof.”

In the same way, perhaps the leaders of North Korea and the US can come together and find common ground on a mutual love of a crotch attack video. Then Miroku will get his much deserved Nobel Peace Prize…or failing that a Confucius Peace Prize.

Michigan's Climate Change Deniers

1 Share

Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI-02) 

Climate change denier

"I do not believe that further congressional action is needed to address climate change, especially via the job killing "Cap and Trade" legislation. Today's global warming doomsayers simply lack the scientific evidence to support their claims. A host of leaders in the scientific community have recognized that the argument for drastic anthropogenic global warming is no longer based on science, but is being driven by irrational fanaticism."

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI-03) 

Poor climate change voting record

Vowed to oppose all legislation pertaining to climate change "that includes a net increase in government revenue," by signing the No Climate Tax pledge in 2010.

Rep. John Moolenaar (R-MI-04) 

Poor climate change voting record

Voted in support of S.J. Res. 24, a "resolution of disapproval" under the Congressional Review Act that would nullify the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan—the first nation-wide limit on greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, and key climate change policy.

Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI-06) 

Climate change denier

"We've experienced climate change for a long time, highs and lows. We had the coldest winter ever last winter. There was a report out that the Great Lakes are six degrees below what they were a year ago. I don't know that climate scientists can really predict where we're headed."

Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI-07) 

Climate change denier

"I read scientists, editors—at least equal on both sides—that say there's a cycle, that significant warming that's produced by human involvement… I read on the other side an equal number, at the very least, that say just the opposite. That this something that's gone on for eons; that we go through these cycles."

Peggy Whitson sets spaceflight record, is rewarded with a call from POTUS

1 Comment

Early on Monday morning, NASA's veteran astronaut Peggy Whitson set a US record for cumulative time in space, surpassing Jeff Williams' record of 534 days. To honor her achievement, President Donald Trump called Whitson from the Oval Office, flanked by his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and another NASA astronaut, Kate Rubins.

The conversation was cordial, and President Trump was gracious in congratulating Whitson and asking about her science activities on the space station. After Whitson explained various engineering efforts, including the recycling of urine into water to make for a closed-loop environmental system, Trump replied, "Well that's good, I'm glad to hear that. Better you than me."

During the call, the president also asked about NASA's Journey to Mars and whether any of the astronauts, including Whitson, Rubins, and Jack Fischer, wanted to go to Mars. They all did. "Tell me, for Mars, what do you see a timing for actually sending people to Mars. Is there a schedule, and when do you see that happening?" he then asked.
