Greek Politician Punches Female Opponent On Live TV

0
0


The live debate is a moment that can make or break a politician's career. This guy didn't just break his career, he shattered it into 1,000 pieces.

It started with a debate leading up to the June 17 elections, when Ilias Kasidiaris, the spokesman for Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party, got way too fired up. Everything was going about as expected between the rightie and noted lefties Rena Dorou and Liana Kanelli (everyone was screaming over everyone else and no one was listening) when things quickly went downhill for Kasidiaris.

First, Dorou referenced a court case pending against Kasidiaris and he responded in kind...by throwing a glass of water in her face. Then Kanelli got out of her chair to try to calm Kasidiaris down -- and he threw three punches at her. Classic political discourse.

A public prosecutor immediately called for Kasidiaris' arrest following the attacks. Needless to say, we doubt this video will make an appearance in his next campaign commercial.

BASE Jumper Records First-Person Brush With Death

On January 17, BASE jumper Jeb Corliss recorded his leap off South Africa's Table Mountain. The film was going to be used to showcase the spectacular views Corliss experiences on his jumps. Instead, it recorded a near-fatal disaster.

One slight miscalculation in BASE jumping can throw everything into complete chaos, and on this day, Corliss and his team had made a mistake. The result was the closest call in Corliss' career. Less than halfway through his flight, Corliss smashed into a wall of granite at 120 miles per hour. "When I impacted, I genuinely believed I was dead," Corliss said. "From the instant I touched, I went, That's it. It's over. I knew I was dead, just like I know water is wet."

After his initial impact with the side of the mountain, Corliss was dealing with a broken wing suit. After losing control, Corliss had to figure out if he was going to pull his safety parachute and try to wait it out for an improbable rescue in unbearable pain or give up and let himself die upon instant impact with the next wall of rocks on the mountain. Corliss chose the chute and lived to say, "It was a difficult choice to make. From impact to deployment was around six seconds, but it felt like minutes."

The final damage was bad, but nothing life threatening: two broken bones in the ankle, a broken fibula, minor kidney issues tied to dehydration (it was 120 degrees that day), and a large open wound on the right shin. If you watch the video, you'll be shocked that these were the only injuries Corliss suffered. He expects a full recovery, although he lost the ACL in his left knee, which means there is still more jumping in Corliss' future.

The Heat, Lebron, Must Win Tonight for This Distraught Young Man

It seems the Heat have a lot more at stake in Game 6 versus the Celtics than just their title hopes. If they lose tonight, this poor Chinese man will lose his faith, and possibly another one of his shirts. Oh, and in case you didn't know, Rondo is not a beautiful girl.

ESPN Forgets One of The Most Famous First Half Performances Ever

0

Look, LeBron absolutely exploded tonight and put together one of the best NBA playoff games of all time. But the ESPN graphics department made a mistake during LBJ's halftime interview. The graphic stated that 30 points tied for the most points in any NBA playoff game half ever. But even the most casual basketball fan has to remember Michael Jordan going off for six three-pointers against the Portland Trailblazers to finish the first half of Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals with 35 points. Looks like the Worldwide Leader in Sports dropped the ball here.

When asked for comment, Michael Jordan only had this to say...
