Instant Karma at Work

Instant Karma at Work

If you ever worry that a-holes don’t get what they deserve, just tune in for the next four minutes and enjoy Uniformedia’s compilation of stupid people (and birds) getting their just desserts for their ill manners and bad behavior.

Worst Toaster Ever

Worst Toaster Ever

We’re on a quest for the perfect toaster around here. The one in The Awesomer HQ leaves our bread either completely white, or burnt beyond recognition. We most definitely have taken these angular toasters off the consideration list.

How Not to Deliver Boxes

How Not to Deliver Boxes

It’s bad enough that this delivery man drops his payload on the ground, but it seems he can’t even manage the simple task of standing in the truck. Maybe he felt bad for the box and sacrificed himself as a show of solidarity.

How Not to Play Handball

How Not to Play Handball

To be honest, we’re not all that familiar with the finer points of playing handball. But we can say with a high degree of certainty that right back Alexander Semikov’s painfully off-course penalty shot isn’t the way you do it.

Cameraman Fails

Cameraman Fails

Being a cameraman for movies, TV or sports can be more dangerous than it looks. It’s a wonder they don’t run into things and fall down more often with their attention fixed on their viewfinders instead of the world around them.

Guitar Swing Fail

Guitar Swing Fail

Keep your eye on Mason, the guitarist on the right side of the frame. He’s trying to pull off that move where you spin the guitar all the way around your body. Unfortunately, he doesn’t quite seem to have nailed the technique.

How to Ruin a Magic Trick

How to Ruin a Magic Trick

Here’s some vintage TV footage of a little kid named Murray being show a card trick. But you can’t fool Murray. His keen powers of observation help him spot a cheap trick a mile away. Murray, Murray, Murray.

Dynamite Dynamometer

Dynamite Dynamometer

You know this video isn’t going to end well as this guy straps his precious Mustang GT 500 down and pushes the envelope on the dynamometer. Though it doesn’t fail in exactly the way we expected.

Exercise Ball Fails

Exercise Ball Fails

Worldwide Interweb makes the case for renaming exercise balls to pain balls, friendship over balls, you knew was going to happen but you did it anyway balls, or just straight up killing machines. Balls.

How Not to Fill a Kettle

How Not to Fill a Kettle

We’ve always thought most people on reality shows were idiots, and this clip only serves to reinforce our case. Here, let’s watch as a Russian reality show “star” attempts to fill up a kettle with water.

How Not to Fly an R/C Copter

How Not to Fly an R/C Copter

If you’ve ever flown a remote-controlled helicopter, you know it can be tricky. Maybe this guy wasn’t trained, or perhaps he just needed some gardening work done. Skip to 2:55 for the good part.

Vacuum Experiment Fail

Vacuum Experiment Fail

(LOUD) A couple of “scientists” try an experiment involving a vacuum pump and a rubber glove – when the unexpected happens. Maybe they got their lab safety lessons from Mehdi Sadaghdar.

I’m in a Jolly Mood Toda-

I’m in a Jolly Mood Toda-

This employee must have been feeling frolicsome on the day this security footage was taken. Well, if he wanted to inject some life to an otherwise normal day, we say he got the job done.

Trust Fall Fail

Trust Fall Fail

The fun part about trust falls usually involves flaking out on the person about to fall at the last second. This is not what happens in this video. In her defense, she closed her eyes too early.

Hot Air Balloon Fireworks Fail

Hot Air Balloon Fireworks Fail

The Taunggyi Festival in Myanmar went from fun to fiery when the fireworks loaded in a hot air balloon went off prematurely. Even more confounding is the fact that this is not the first time this happened.

Real Skifi

Real Skifi

The latest compilation from Real Skifi, a group of teenage urban skiers from Finland. The video starts out with some great bloopers, then shows their clever use of makeshift props for their tricks.

Nitro Circus: Crash Reel 2012

Nitro Circus: Crash Reel 2012

The extreme bad-asses of Nitro Circus defy the odds every day, pulling off incredible stunts on their bikes, trikes, cars, skateboards and motorcycles. And sometimes they fall down. (Thanks Dallin!)

Train Drops

Train Drops

A brand-new EMD GT46C-ACe locomotive is being unloaded from a cargo ship, when the unthinkable happens and the cables snap on the 145-ton train. We’re guessing this isn’t going to buff out.

Why Not to Buy a LADA

Why Not to Buy a LADA

Over the years, Russia hasn’t exactly been known for the quality of its cars. At best, they’re utilitarian, and at worst, well, we present… the LADA. Yes, we know it was rigged, but we still laughed.

How Not to Ice Dive

How Not to Ice Dive

(NSFW:Language) It’s a bad enough idea to try and cannonball into an ice-covered swimming pool in your Speedo, but this dope proves that the frozen water below isn’t his biggest problem.

How Not to Do Parkour

How Not to Do Parkour

We love parkour and freerunning around here, but we’re used to seeing graceful and jaw-dropping maneuvers. This is not one of those times. It’ll take a while for this dude to live this one down.

Longboard Fail/Win

Longboard Fail/Win

(NSFW: Language) Either this guy has wheels in his shoes and grease on his gloves, or he’s just the worlds luckiest longboarder after he takes a nasty spill, but still pulls off an awesome finish.

Trampoline Fails Compilation

Trampoline Fails Compilation

Proof that trampolines are one of the best things man ever came up with. It’s such a simple device that brings joy to everyone. Even to those not on it. But don’t use one when there’s a dog nearby.

Yes! I’m 14th Place!

Yes! I’m 14th Place!

Add another fool to the list of premature celebrants. Riccardo Russo had a decent lead in the 2012 Italian CIV race, until he miscalculated and began celebrating a lap too early. Poor schmuck.

San Diego Fireworks Fail

San Diego Fireworks Fail

The 4th of July fireworks display at San Diego Bay ended in disaster when a “computer glitch” turned what was supposed to be 15 minutes worth of fireworks into a 15 second blob of light and sound.

Hurdle Disaster

Hurdle Disaster

We’ve never quite understood the entertainment value of watching a steeplechase, but it’s double-whammy schadenfreude moments like this one that give us some hope for getting our money’s worth.

Treadmill Fail Compilation

Treadmill Fail Compilation

While most of the fools in this video get what they deserve for messing around on their treadmills, we’re still amazed that even those simply trying to walk or run can end up in a moving faceplant.

How Not to Loop De Loop

How Not to Loop De Loop

These guys spent weeks building a ramp so they could speed downhill and do a 360° loop on a longboard. Well, the best laid plans of mice and men… Oh, and take a physics class.

Snowboard Fai…Oh. Win

Snowboard Fai…Oh. Win

(NSFW: Language) You could just say that the kid in this video was lucky, but we like to think of it as justĀ another instance of the snow gods smiling upon one of us mere mortals.

Man Gets Trunkslapped

Man Gets Trunkslapped

An eager man tries feeding an elephant, but it doesn’t seem to care for his help. Undeterred, he gets more daring, so the animal finally puts him in touch with nature. The wild side of nature.

How Not to Be Batman

How Not to Be Batman

File under made-for-the-internet/schadenfreude idiocy alert: this guy trying to do a slick Batman hang off of the fireplace mantel definitely looks more like a joker to us. (Thanks mrrockzstar!)
