Stunning

The collision of digital video technology and human stupidity has not been a pretty thing. The interwebs are chock full o' nuts maiming themselves in every conceivable way on skateboards, motorcycles, snowmachines, bikes, yadda, yadda, yadda. It's as if people think a video isn't worth watching unless someone in it has a date with the emergency room.

Hey, I understand the sentiment behind the T-shirt that says, "It's only funny until someone gets hurt. Then it's hilarious." It's just that I prefer to apply it mainly to colossal wastes of time like NASCAR and baseball.

There is great beauty in fluid motion. Treat yourself to three and a half minutes of Sergio Layos.




Thanks to Jeff for posting this over at Bike Carson.

There's no denying that although watching some idiot take a dirt nap is entertaining it does become repetitive quickly. I'd forgotten how good it is to watch someone land their tricks. Nice sound track too.

I just wish he was wearing a helmet, to set a good example for the kids.
