Four-time World Cup champion skier Marcel Hirscher was doing his thing in a slalom race in Madonna di Campiglio, Italy today, minding his own business, when he was almost smoked by a news drone.
I've seen many knife throwers in my life but this participant of Lithuania's Got Talent is really terrible. Two moments made me cringe: The first, when an errant knife sliced slightly one of the assistant's fingers. The other, when another knife passed an inch away of his partner's head.
If you don't cringe and close your eyes a few times watching this seven-minute compilation of close calls with death, you're probably a robot. I just can't believe all these people survived these accidents, sometimes by only an inch.
The Allure of the Sea, Royal Caribbean's $1.5 billion dollar "superliner," left for Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, making it under Denmark's Store Belt Bridge with
1.5 20 inches to spare. Not bad for a ship that's 3,000 236 feet high.
