    Videos of hilarious wipe-outs, screw ups, and stupidity in general. If you find humor in people getting injured doing stupid stuff, this is for you. YouTube has a plethora of these. Some are funnier than others. And they're plenty of monthly or yearly compilations as well. It's just something to use to pass the time. For example:

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Y7jrew8kS7s" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    This is just one of many. Some of them are freaking comical. This is my type of humor. Don't judge me.

    ^
    This ones pretty good.

    BTW, poor squirrel

    you have to be the most sensitive poster on this board. i find it pretty ridiculous that you'd make something like this about race.

    Want to prove me wrong? Neither of you are denying it. I find it pretty hilarious you can't.

    FINE. here's one of "OUR" most famous fail:
    <object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/b89CnP0Iq30?hl=en_US&amp;version=3"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/b89CnP0Iq30?hl=en_US&amp;version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    :p

    i'm not denying that the videos are mostly of white people, but why do you care? is the mix of asians and white people in a couple fail videos not racially diverse enough for you, or did you just feel the need to hijack a thread? i just don't understand why you're making an issue out of this

    It's not an issue. Y'all are making it that. I simply pointed out it's white folks doing dumb things, is all. Y'all want to post more and ignore my statement, go ahead. OR, just prove me wrong, men. There's no issue here but the one YOU ALL make. So I posted about BEANS for all of us Mexicans... no one made an issue of that. Go on. Continue. :p

    Let's make a video of this thread and upload it to YouTube. We can title it "Mexican FAIL". That should appease Swoly.

    "Schadenfreude Listeni/ˈʃɑːdənfrɔɪdə/ (German: [ˈʃaːdənˌfʁɔʏdə]) is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.[1] This word is a loanword from German. The literal English translation is 'Harm-Joy'. It is the feeling of joy or pleasure when one sees another fail or suffer misfortune. It is also borrowed by some other languages."

    "A New York Times article in 2002 cited a number of scientific studies of schadenfreude, which it defined as, "delighting in others' misfortune." Many such studies are based on social comparison theory, the idea that when people around us have bad luck, we look better to ourselves. Other researchers have found that people with low self-esteem are more likely to feel schadenfreude than are people who have high self-esteem."

    "Brain-scanning studies show that schadenfreude is correlated with envy in subjects. Strong feelings of envy activated physical pain nodes in the brain's dorsal anterior cingulate cortex; the brain's reward centers, such as the ventral striatum, were activated by news that the people envied had suffered misfortune. The magnitude of the brain's schadenfreude response could even be predicted from the strength of the previous envy response"
