Tony Hawk’s Fingers Are Literally Broken In Half After Skateboarding Accident…And Yes, There Are Pictures

Published

on

Even the pro’s have bad days.

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk took a bit of a tumble on Saturday and the half-pipe wasn’t the only thing left shredded. Something went wrong while attempting to do a “backside smith stall as a set up for a backside blunt” and Hawk ended up on his back with his fingers bending in ways they were never intended to be bent. When he arrived at the hospital, a nurse told the skateboarding pro that all circulation to his fingers had been lost. The injury was so bad that they had to cut off his wedding ring before resetting his fingers…and after watching all 16 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy I know how painful that can be. You can see just how bad the injuries were from the x-ray Hawk shared on social media.

According to LADbible, Hawk thinks he may have been “too cavalier” with his approach and should have been more a bit more prepared. “In that moment, I regretted not wearing full pads. Ironically, that wouldn’t have saved me from injury but I was being too cavalier to think that a wall over 8′ with vert was as ‘safe’ as a mini-ramp,” he said. Unfortunately I think he was right about the pads because all the protective gear in the world probably wouldn’t have prevented his fingers from looking like this…

The athletic legend says the injury has brought up some mixed feelings but none strong enough to keep him from the sport he loves. “”I am filled with divergent emotions: sadness from scaring my son & friends, regret from being cocky/careless, grateful from having an injury that could have been worse, and frustrated that I never got a backside blunt… as my skater ego endures. As pro skaters, we accept that injuries are inevitable and perseverance is key to success. But it still sucks to get hurt, especially at my age. And I’ll still be back for more.”

Not really sure how to end this as positively as Hawk has on his social media so I guess I’ll just leave it with this…”always wear a helmet”?

Video Of Naya Rivera Singing With Her Son Is A Beautiful Way To Remember The Talented Mom

Published

on

It has been truly a sad week for anyone who loved Naya Rivera. The 33-year old, multitalented actress, singer and mom went missing during a boat trip with her son on Lake Piru in Southern California. Sadly after days of searching, Rivera was found dead with authorities concluding that in the last moments of her life she managed to muster up enough strength to get her 4-year old son back into the boat but not enough to save herself.

The Glee star rose to fame during the show’s 6-season run as she portrayed the fierce and fabulous Santana Lopez. Rivera’s success continued after the show as she released the hit song “Sorry” in 2011 and went on to star in At The Devil’s Door and Devious Maids. Of course Hollywood tributes have been pouring out with messages coming from former cast members expressing just how much they will miss the shining star. One tribute, in particular, came from Glee co-star Amber Riley and it is perhaps the most beautiful way to remember Rivera. In a post on Instagram Riley shared a video of Rivera singing a duet with her young son with a caption that read “My favorite duet partner. I love you. I miss you. I don’t have words right now, just lots of feelings. Rest In Peace Angel, and know that your family will never have to worry about anything.

Rest in peace Naya Rivera.

Bill Nye Goes Viral For TikTok Demonstrating The Importance Of Wearing A Face Mask

Published

Perhaps we should listen to the SCIENCE GUY.

It has been well over a hundred days since the coronavirus began shutting down the United States and for some reason there is still a debate roaring about why we should be taking the simplest of measures to protect ourselves and others from the potentially deadly virus. Well luckily for us, scientist Bill Nye just shared a very informative TikTok explaining just how important the use of face masks is during this unprecedented time.

The 64-year old tv star made a series of two TikToks (meaning it literally takes less than 2 minutes to understand this message) demonstrating the effectiveness of different face coverings and then explaining just how important it is to wear one. Face masks… prevent particles from my respiratory system from getting into the air and getting into your respiratory system” Nye shares. 

The experiment shows the scientist trying to blow out a lit candle while wearing a knitted scarf, a homemade double layered mask, and then an N-95 mask. Obviously the medical grade N-95 mask garnered the best results but Nye goes on to reiterate the importance of face coverings in general by saying “Everybody, this is a matter literally of life and death. And when I use the word ‘literally’, I mean literally a matter of life and death.” Eerie to hear it put it that way but that is the truth!

Check out the videos below and get yourself a good mask!

Mariah Carey Is Nearly ‘Crushed’ In Blooper From Last Year’s #BottleTopChallenge

Published

on

That’s one high-octane octave.

Mariah Carey has a vocal range that leaves even dogs cheering for more, so it was no surprise when she took part in last year’s #BottleTopChallenge. The social media challenge forced singers to open a bottle top with only the use of their voices. Well obviously there isn’t a bottle top big enough to stand up to Carey’s whistle register so she shared a video demonstrating just how easy it was for her to complete the challenge.

I bet you she has never needed help opening a jar of pickles. It has been one year since the 5-time Grammy winner shared the original post and to commemorate the occasion Carey shared an outtake in which she is nearly “crushed” by the bottle. Of course the word “crushed” is a bit over-dramatized but it makes for a good post, darling.

Quite possibly the most impressive blooper ever. Knocking over a bottle of champagne is way more exciting then just spinning off the cap!
