Swiss Olympic skier casually rides up escalator with one arm on his day off

TwitterFacebook

Competing at an Olympics is a serious affair, not that it seems to worry Fabian Bösch too much.

The 20-year-old Swiss skier isn’t due to compete until next Sunday in the men’s Slopestyle event, so in the meantime he’s having a bit of fun — or you could call it a spot of training.

Here’s Bösch casually holding onto the rail of an escalator, except he’s not on the steps, instead hanging off the side. The dude has a strong right arm.

It’s not the only time Bösch has pulled off a stunt for Instagram, even if the risk of injury would probably send any coach into a conniption. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

4 April Fools’ Day pranks that went horribly wrong and I am so sorry

TwitterFacebook

April Fools’ Day: the best day of the year. Everyone is pranking one another, having a good time, laughing, and nobody is ever annoyed or angry in the slightest. 

It’s the perfect day! 

I love pranks and I am always down for a good one. But sometimes the pranks, unfortunately, do not go as planned. Here are four April Fools’ Day pranks I pulled that went very wrong and I am very sorry for them.

1. The Old “Immovable Quarter” Prank.  

April 1, 2013: It was a warm afternoon. I was on my lunch break and eating outside on a picnic table in the park when I decided to have a little fun. I went back to my car and grabbed some glue and a quarter and glued it to the ground so I could laugh at all the passersby who tried to pick it up. Within minutes, a man bent down to grab the coin and could not lift it. I laughed and laughed but nobody else seemed to think it was funny.
