It’s happened to all of us. You drink a beer(or 30), sit out in the sun all day, and maybe even take something for that sore back of yours. Next thing you know, even the most dependable footwear turns it’s back on you. It happens all the time. It recently happened to the fellow above at Coachella 2010. Enjoy the video as well as our play-by-play below!
0:05 – Man makes first contact
0:06 – Man loses it to a stumble back
0:12 – Man attempts to use opposable thumbs to his advantage, sits down instead
0:14 – Inconsiderate girls walk in front of camera
0:16-0:23 – Flip-Flop manages to avoid the usually strong “pinch” technique
0:24 – Outside source sabotages flip-flop
0:25-0:33 – Man, w/ flip-flop in grasp attempts to secure it on foot
0:34-0:41 – Man basks in glory w/ flip-flop on foot, adjusts glasses
0:45 – In a drastic turn of events, Man stands upright, loses both flip-flops, it’s on now
0:46-1:04 – Man takes break to mumble incoherently to group of girls, flip-flops laugh
1:05-1:16 – In what seems like 2 minutes, Man stumbles and eventually grasps flops in hands(not feet)
1:17-1:31 – Man starts from scratch, lands left flop on foot in one try! 3 double takes on the right later, he lands it on the 4th try
1:33 – The crowd rejoices, Man feels accomplished, flip-flops take away a moral victory
Not pictured was the inevitable flip-flop revenge after the camera was turned off.
Laura Hall, who hails from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire has been court ordered to refrain from entering a pub, bar, club or off-licence for two years. The Metro.co.uk writes:
The drinking banning order also states that she cannot buy alcohol or drink in any public place.
Police applied to magistrates for the order because of the number of drink-related offences that Hall had been involved in.
Wow. I can’t even imagine what kind of shenanigans Laura was getting herself into. I mean, really. I’ve seen people throw up on the bar, urinate on the bar(multiple times), throw people through windows at the bar, the list goes on. Yet, I’m pretty sure most, if not all, of those people were legally able to head on back the next day to get a bloody mary and nurse that hangover. […]
In the latest story reminding us yanks that we may be just a bit too uptight at times, still not too far removed from certain aspects of our evangelical roots ( perhaps), over 1,000 Carlsberg brewery workers went on strike recently, apparently up in arms about the company’s new “Lunch-Only” beer policy.
That’s right, up until now, employees of the Danish brewer were allowed to drink as much as they liked on the job…with one minor caveat. According to Carlsberg spokesman Jens Bekke, the only restriction was “that you could not be drunk at work. It was up to each and everyone to be responsible.” Hey, seems fair to me…
