Man takes a tumble celebrating his failed golf swing

TwitterFacebook

There’s a saying in sports: Don’t celebrate too early. And you know why? If you celebrate your win too early, it’s really, REALLY, embarrassing and hilarious when you actually lose.

No one knows this better than the cousin of  Twitter user Nathan 𓅓. He posted this video of his proud cousin celebrating his great golf swing.

There’s so much to unpack here. First, he completely misses the ball. Then, he celebrates his swing, still not realizing he missed the ball. Finally, he gets so excited about his “great swing” that he falls off the ledge of the platform, into the net below him. Don’t worry, he’s OK – he was seen laughing and rolling around in the net seconds later. Read more…

Why don’t we have waterproof laptops already?

TwitterFacebook

I still don’t know how it happened.

One minute I was sitting down at my desk, glass of water in hand. Seconds later I was watching helplessly as the contents of the glass seeped into my MacBook Air. My screen went black almost immediately.

As I walk-of-shamed my soggy laptop down to IT, I started going through a mental checklist of what was backed up and what wasn’t. Just how screwed would I be if the thing ended up being totally unsalvageable?

Luckily for me, almost everything was backed up somewhere. Luckier still, IT was able to successfully dry out the laptop and return it to me within a couple days (thanks Norman!) with no sign of the incident.  Read more…
