    There's a video making it's rounds on facebook, that doesn't end well.

    Two guys try to re-create the William Tell shot on a talent show. Obviously the vid did not air on the show, but it made it to facebook.

    The deceased guy tried without much luck to keep an apple on his head, but decided the one judge had a drink can that would be better. Meanwhile the archer stood there with his recurve fully drawn, waiting for the target to finally be ready.

    The shot went low and it plainly went into his forehead. :eek:

    Anyway if it's a fake vid, I couldn't tell. Pretty horrific and I wouldn't recommend watching it if you don't like that sort of thing.

    Edit: Looked it up on youtube and it appears to be from 4 years ago and was a Russian talent show.

    Please don't tell us you thought that rubbish was real. Jörgs fugazi vid was lightyears better than this and it wasn't believable. 2 minutes on Google will give you all the info. Didn't think about how the vid wouldn't have gone through post if there was a real accident? Every 60 seconds...

    Dang, I guess I'm officially gullible.

    That looks so real, I can't imagine how it could be faked.

    :eek:

    For the brain damaged

    who are stupid enough to find and watch that mhh.. event on youtube:

    - something to purge the mind, by replacing recent pics with others..

    and: to keep it real!..

    .. for "less is more", full distraction by an adorable woman WITHOUT a pole:

    You may vote whether this one or the other, just in case you want
    to forget about and distract from that "instant deep sleep by arrow received"..

    People are stupid, that´s true: But life is beautiful.. and awesome of course!

    Let´s hormons help protect our narrow minds...

    be safe!

    Both were awesome, but my vote goes to the first one.

    No way that could be faked. :)

    Thanks Be, certainly took my mind off the apple idiot.

    I guess it was not due to the pole.. right?

    I managed to erase the apple-sleeper efficiently as well :)

    thanks to the youtube algorithm!- that suggested those two
    videos...

    The first one gets all my votes concerning beachforks from now on. Holy shnikies! 100% USDA 5 star approved.
