Only real dumbasses I saw in those clips were:

1: Person on grenade training course.
The simple fact that this training area is surrounded by a "T" shaped trench tells me that the person in that clip is by no means the first person to do this.

I think the fact that the instructor grabs the person, throws them into the nearby trench and then pile in on top...well that one kinda goes from luck to pre-planning insight... the planners know their audience.

So I would call that a prepping win to question of: "What preparations do you make when your plan is to give a live hand grenade to a dumbass."
I got that feeling as well.

And the dumbass tossing the grenade, which was the most half-assed throw I've ever seen, probably got a pretty good ass chewing after that.

Folks seem to have forgotten the rules of this thread. Let's see if I can help y'all out...

Basic rules: (for the time being)
1) The person(s) must survive with nothing more than minor injuries. Fatal & very serious injury incidents are not entertainment.
2) Sufficient reason to assume that the grief survived was self-inflicted. (i.e.- due to being a dumbass)
3) Show sufficient reason to believe the survival was not divine intervention (no religion rule) but rather luck, random chance or other such "roll of the dice".


I'm seeing an awful lot not following rule #2 there.

a turbine is not a get out of jail free card when performing crosswind takeoffs.

Nobody hurt and the aircraft will be rebuilt.

Ok, so Kyle's videos were meant as comedy and not to be taken seriously. It was clearly faked green screen and the truck was loaded with Tannerite.

Kyle was really lucky in another way. His plea deal on "drug dealing while armed" with the Feds kept him from doing hard time in PYITA prison, 60 days is a straight up gift even though he lost all of his guns. Still a Dumbass.
