The Blemish » What Better than a slap to the face Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:12:17 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Both SUPer Laird Hamilton and Surfer Allen Sarlo Shoot Malibu Pier Fri, 29 Aug 2014 05:50:27 +0000 Right now in SoCal there’s a once in a decade swell due to Hurricane Marie down in Baja. Naturally, all the surfers are taking advantage of the huge waves which will likely never be seen again for quite some time. One of them, Laird Hamilton, a stand up paddleboarder, decided to ride one of these waves right under Malibu pier. I’m not sure what’s more impressive about this video. Him shooting the pier or the gorgeous shot at the end.

Granted, some may argue that shooting the pier on a steady wave like this is relatively easy. But, whatever. I can barely swim as it is. It’s still kind of impressive to me. Anyway, here’s another shot of him threading the pier followed by footage of both him and surfer Allen Sarlo going through at about the same time.

Here’s drone footage of Sarlo doing it solo.

Gamer Gets Swatted While Live Streaming Thu, 28 Aug 2014 18:25:48 +0000 Popular gamer Kootra was streaming Counter-Strike on when all of a sudden cops and SWAT stormed the place. Turns out, he got swatted. At around 11:30 am, someone called the Littleton police claiming to have killed co-workers in the building and set bombs inside.

The response also triggered school lockdowns in the area. Littleton Academy was placed under a secure perimeter and Arapahoe High School and Powell Middle School were also locked down.

Check out the uploaded video. It’s crazy.

Bianca Bree Van Damme Has Nice Lats Wed, 27 Aug 2014 22:15:45 +0000 Bianca Bree Van Damme, 23-year-old daughter of Jean Claude Van Damme, did the ice bucket challenge last week. I’m not sure how I missed it or why I didn’t even know she existed. For that, I am sorry. To make it up to you, here she is doing the splits and flexing while someone dumps water on her. Are we good now?

Video Shows Moment Before 9-Year-Old Girl Kills Her Instructor With an Uzi Wed, 27 Aug 2014 07:52:07 +0000 Video released by the Mohave County Sheriff’s officials shows the moment before shooting instructor, Charles Vacca, was accidentally killed by a 9-year-old girl he was teaching. Vacca was training the little girl on how to fire an Uzi at the Last Stop shooting outdoor range. He stood next to her as he told her to fire off one shot first before letting her switch to full auto. The recoil sent the gun over her head and resulted in the accidental death of Vacca.

I know this may come as a shock to some of you but you may want to rethink giving a 9-year-old girl an Uzi to fire off next time.

Philly Newspaper Caption Creator May Have Been a Teeny Bit Racist Mon, 25 Aug 2014 22:21:24 +0000 An editor from the Philadelphia Public Record newspaper has been fired after running a racist caption. In a photo of City Councilman Mark Squilla sitting with a group of Asians in Chinatown, the editor made up a bunch of Asian-ish names and eventually gave up on making them sound plausible and went straight into racist. He came up with names like “Hao Hello,” “Du Wei,” “Me Too,” “Chinky Winky” and “Dinky Doo.”

Philadelphia Public Record publisher Jimmy Tayoun said it was a “proofreading error” and that “nobody was offended so stop trying to start trouble.” Of course, that’s the totally wrong thing to say when you offend a group of people with blatant racism. They did, however, issue an apology for the offensive slur on their website writing, “So solly, Cholly.” No, just kidding. They definitely did not do that.

In our Aug. 21, 2014 issue an offensive slur was accidentally published in the Philadelphia Public Record. This shocking lapse of professional conduct occurred contrary to our editorial directives and in no way reflects the views of our staff or our organization.

An internal investigation is underway to uncover the source of this intolerable abuse and to prevent it from ever happening again. We apologize whole-heartedly to the Asian American community and to all Philadelphians of this vibrant, diverse city who work together to make it the best place in America to live and to grow.

While Tayoun probably still didn’t think it was a big deal, he fired the editor responsible for the caption.

Meet Teresina Bell who seemed so happy to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Until she ran into a pole and knocked herself out. At which point she faced a new challenge of not losing consciousness.

Best line in the video: “Quick, where’s the ice?”

The Dinosaur in the Hood Prank Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:28:04 +0000 I’m confused. I thought pranks usually involved one guy harassing someone until the victim loses his shit and physically assaults him.

Damn Nature, You Scary! Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:35:32 +0000 Here are two videos which serve as prime examples as to why I stay away from the ocean. First up is a whale messing with a sea lion. The video starts out with the sea lion hiding underneath a boat trying to get away from a killer whale tormenting it. They decide to drive the boat away because that sea lion isn’t going to learn anything if it doesn’t stand up for itself. About 30 seconds later, it gets tossed 20 feet into the air by the whale.

Next up is a video of a shark caught on a fishing line in Florida. As the people try to free it from the hook, a giant grouper comes and swallows the shark. It swallowed that freaking shark. The Discovery Channel has a week dedicated to these terrors of the ocean and a giant fish just comes and swallows it. Yea, I’m never going into the water again.
