‘Oldest’ Ninja Warrior Contestant Competes on American Ninja Warrior

Can you imagine an old person over the age of 80 competing on American Ninja Warrior? Certainly not! But one guy proved it can be done – or is that really the case?

‘American Ninja Warrior’ is a competition series aired on NBC, with contestants going through sets of difficult obstacle courses that many fail to complete. The show has high ratings and has a huge following among viewers who get excited over the challenging things the contestants have to do to complete the course without falling in the water.

Seeing that this is a very physical competition, only the fittest and most competitive people could complete the course – and many who fall in that category have also failed due to miscalculation, wrong moves, or pure bad luck.

So, what happened to the old man?

His name is Arthur Hickenlooper, an 81-year-old retired postal worker from Denver, Colorado. He might be old and looked like he couldn’t even run a few steps without collapsing but he finished the course with just a few problems.

There were times when he had to stop and take a breath but he managed to recover and have enough energy to get him through another challenge. It is really impossible for a man his age to complete this rigorous competition when tons of men a quarter his age have failed.

So, how did he do it? Well, really, is that he isn’t an old man at all! This is part of an elaborate joke featuring American Ninja Warrior legend Brent Steffensen. ‘Arthur Hickenlooper’ doesn’t really exist – and his surname was just lifted from John Hickenlooper, the governor of Colorado who was actually present at the taping of that particular episode.

Still, it was impressive to watch this video even if you knew the ‘old’ man there was really a legend in this competition.

Just in case you wondered who his ‘wife’ is, she is actually the mother of host Matt Iseman; she appeared in another joke video on the show this season where she supposedly completed the course dressed as a NASCAR driver.

Prankster Met “Karma” As He Was Fined £52,500 Because Of A Woman He Kicked While Doing A Prank

Pranksters are everywhere. The boom of taking videos in doing pranks developed when social media boomed. People think it is fun to scare, trick or even hurt individuals and catch all those awkward moments on video. They share them online and take pride in their sick tricks just to become overnight internet famous.

We have seen people scaring the hell out of innocent strangers by using fake bombs, guns, and events. Others could have a heart attack because of all these crazy pranks they think make them cool.

Hurting others is no different. Pranksters should be fined, don’t you think so?

Crossing the line

That is exactly what this woman did when a proud prankster joyfully video recorded her standing in the middle of the street, waiting to cross. This guy, Mario Montealegre, thought it was funny to kick someone’s calf in public and see a lady, who did not do anything wrong to him, fall to the ground.

He was even caught on record counting before he attacked the poor victim!

The woman, who was wearing heeled boots at that time, fell pretty bad. She hit her lower back straight to the ground after her ankle got twisted. Everything happened so fast that the woman beside her was just as shocked as her.

Mario and his friend, who was holding the camera, was giggling and the video caught it.

And sad to say, many people think it is funny because the video went viral on the internet. While others laughed at her awkward fall, she did not think it was funny at all.

Minor injuries

She suffered minor injuries including sprain in the ankle, back pain and injuries in the wrist and knee. She took a 75-day leave from work due to the prank. Because of this, the men became instafamous themselves as the police took it to the public to look for the pranksters.

They were fined £52,500 as compensation plus custodial sentence. Thankfully, the police did not have to force them to show up in court because they voluntarily presented themselves to the office.

May this be a lesson to all to think before doing anything crazy for internet’s sake. Hoping for justice to be served to those prank victims who do not have the guts to report.

Legendary Slackliner and Daredevil Faith Dickey Crosses a Canyon Wearing Three-Inch Heels

It is no secret: wearing a pair of heels is really difficult, especially if you are going to attend a special function where walking is needed. If you’re not used to wearing heels, you might just stare at your feet the whole time because you are terrified you are going to hit a bump in the road and find yourself face plant into the concrete. Wearing heels in the morning until the night may want you to feel that you just want to go home and throw your shoes in the garbage.

However, some women still choose to wear heels. Not only does it make you more made up but it also makes you feel more authorized and formal. It also makes any woman stand up taller, look slimmer, and feel more confident.

Heels can be a pain at times, but you will be surprised to see a woman who has taken them to new heights – literally!

The Ultimate Daredevil

Professional Slackliner and daredevil Faith Dickey from Austin, Texas, fearlessly walked across a wire hundreds of feet in the air while wearing three-inch heels. She inched her way above a canyon wearing a pair of black pumps.

Faith only had a slim cord attaching her to the line, just in case she tripped.

Not the First Time

You will be surprised to know that this is not Faith’s first time to walk across a wire wearing heels. In January 2015, she also participated in the Women’s Highline Meeting in Ostrov, Czech Republic where she broke all previous female high lining records, including the highest free solo walk for a woman which measures 820 feet above the ground.

She again tested her skills by crossing the Pera da Gávea in Rio de Janeiro, one of Brazil’s most famous highlines wearing a pair of bright pink kitten heels.

People who saw Faith crossing the thin cords with her choice of shoes have nothing to say but admiration and surprise.

I have never seen anything like it before – I’ve taken photos of highliners, but one wearing a pair of heels is completely different. Faith is very experienced at highlining, but even so, she had to be extremely careful in her heels.

The daredevil is the first woman to pass the 100-meter mark in highlining. She also holds several world records in the sports of slackening.

People were amazed upon seeing her tricks. [Image Credit: EpicTV / Youtube]

Do you think you can do whatever Faith is doing? Are you brave enough to dare yourself to cross a thin wire up in the air? Because for us, we surely can’t! We’ll leave it to the professionals.

Would you dare to live in an apartment with someone you can’t see but feel? Though we are already in the modern age, still, horror stories exist! It is just that there are more technical ways to prove such but it’s up to you if you will believe them.

The paranormal documentation “Dear David” has been storming the Twitter netizens recently. It happened on Adam Ellis, a cartoonist from New York.

How Dear David started

Adam has been sharing his chilling experiences at home through Twitter. Some believe it, and some do not. But now, he had them documented to give proof that what he’s experiencing is real.

He often dreams of a young boy who appears damaged physically. In one of his episodes, he was approached by a young girl at a library. The kid asked him if he had seen Dear David. Moreover, she said that the young boy is dead and he only appears at midnight. She warns that you should say, Dear David, if you want to ask a question. But, he can only answer two. Spilling the third question will just make him murdered.

Proofs of Adam’s horrible experience

After the encounter with the young girl, weeks have passed and he saw Dear David again. In his dream, he saw the kid in his room sitting in his green chair. Adam asked about his death. The boy stated that someone hit him on the head in a store. Ellis dared to throw the third question by asking the kid who murdered him. Right there and then, the cartoonist woke up thinking if he was going to die.

And closer!

After the incident, Adam posts less and claims that he is no longer having episodes of David.

Many have been captured by Adam’s horrible experiences. This became a debate whether it is true or just a mere imagination and an attempt to be known for his career as a cartoonist. Looking through Adam’s proofs, which side would you dare to buy?
