We’ve all been there. Something happens and it happens fast and before you know exactly what that thing is, you have just under a second before your body reacts. Fortunately for us, in a world full of mobile cameras, the chance of capturing these priceless images becomes ever more likely. Enjoy.
#1 Don’t f*ck with the duck
If there’s one thing that the internet has proved, it’s that animals don’t make the best selfie-partners.
This is Kaija Straumanis. She actually has stuff thrown at her face on purpose. It’s art, you cretin.
#3 Before becoming a baseball player, invest time learning to catch
People get scared of sharks, terrorism and terrorist sharks. To me, baseball looks more fucking dangerous.
#4 You’re not even safe in the crowd
Seriously, don’t even watch baseball. I don’t know a lot about it, but that ball isn’t stationary, it’s travelling really fast, it’s really hard. Just look at that terror on their faces. That beautiful, terror.
#5 Especially don’t trust children with baseballs
This is what I can only assume is the beach baseball version of the Blair Witch Project and this is what was left on the camera. It’s not known whether camera/parent/abductor survived.
#6 Lightweight bikes also have their cons
This is Kelly McGarry overshooting a jump during practise for a Red Bull event. The photo demonstrates the outcome of a bunch of Newtonian physics calculations I’ll never understand properly. Notice how his left wrist curls in naturally to allow him to gracefully move into the break fall to avoid injury.
#7 If you bike in hotpants, you get what you get
Just look at this guy. No, not the one standing bolt upright posing for that ultimate holiday by the side of the road, the cyclist. If you can call him that. Somewhere between deciding it was a good idea to commute by bike today and yes, it’s sunny – definitely the right day to break out those cut-off jean hot pants with work shoes look, he forgot how to people. I’m not even sure how it’s possible to get yourself in exactly this position, but aside from the lamp post, that is some nasty crotch to handlebars meet.
#8 Even the pros can’t get it right
Look at this guy. He looks like a fucking spartan. This only adds to the evidence that biking is for pussys. The puny bike as literally fallen to pieces in his man hands.
#9 If you’re still not convinced biking is a shit idea
#10 Really, animals don’t give a shit if you want a photo with them
The moment of betrayal. Look into his eyes. He knows what he’s doing.
#11 Bill Clinton, taking one for the team
Even the greats have the odd stain on their record.
#12 A proud father looks on
It was at this moment, Jimmy decided to quit the pre-game hotboxes with friends
#13 Little to the left, back a bit. Okay mate, smile.
This just looks like someone wanted to get that picture where your face reverberates and you look 120 years old. Who even wears collars when they play football?
#14 Desert Eagle. Point five oh.
Turns out the Call of Duty did not prepare Kelvin to taking some hot casings to the facings. Seriously, they’re really hot.
#15 Goonies never die
I can only assume this was a university endorsed doppler effect experiment.
#16 Let it snow
“WANT TO TAKE PART IN THE SNOWBALL FIGHT?”
#17 Old school cool
Our favourite. A lady in London handbagging a neo-nazi on a march. Fuck ’em.
#18 Horses. Dangerous
It’s unconfirmed whether or not this horse is bucking and is about to hit this girl in the face, or whether it is actually an ordained minister of the church and is blessing her.
#19 Pretty fly for a white guy
You can’t help but like this one. He’s that smug guy that’s too cool to get in the pool.
#20 White water rafting / Wipeout
Either this man is doing the most stylish entry into a raft ever, or he’s about to appreciate the importance of good head protection.
#21 Motor bicycle.. Motor unicycle.
The blackened visor hides the expression of “hah, the guy behind me has just lost a wheel”.
#22 Travelling downstream
This picture looks as if lady and her dog have already given up and written off the lady in the salmon pink top, who appears to be trying to behave like a salmon, travelling downstream.
#23 It’s cool, she’s fine.
This photo captures the moment a male realises he is definitely not getting laid, despite being “fun” and will desperately try and laugh off her resulting pain.
#24 Swings, they’re not meant for adults.
This photo pinpoints the precise moment this healthily weighted girl developed a complex about her weight for the rest of her life.
#25 Much honour
This is actually a rare colour photo of the very secretive WW2 Japanese kamikaze bikers. While renowned for their bravery in battle, they were decommissioned early in their life due to them not actually doing that much damage.
