Fun with pain: beware the speed wobbles; and tighten those trucks


I’m not a huge fan of watching someone’s humorous get suddenly ejected, seeing ankles fold like wet cardboard, or any other form of serious injury that seems to pass for a good time on YouTube today.

But sometimes, like an accidental punch to the nuts, another person’s video-recorded pain can be pretty funny. Like in this scene of a group of skateboarders seemingly out for an afternoon kick-around. Clearly one of them, who is easy to spot, didn’t tighten his trucks this morning and comes down with a seriously contagious case of the speed wobbles. The result is an epic, but rather painless, pile-up reminiscent of the best NASCAR smackdowns. The lawn slide at the end? Wonderful.
