Technology is supposed to make life easier, and in this case, it only made things worse.

A TV show in Norway called “Golden Goal” strapped headsets onto some soccer players so that they could only see a bird’s-eye-view of the field.

And the result is absolutely hilarious.

It’s not exactly the most exciting game in the world, but watching them try to navigate around and connect with the ball is pretty entertaining.

The players stick their arms out like a horde of zombies and hobble around just as slow.

At one point the goalie just lays down to make it easier to block any shots, which was the smartest thing he could have done.

Way to use your braaaaaaains…

As a rugby player, Edward Baker was used to getting pummeled to the ground and knocked around in every which way imaginable.

He broke his nose over and over again and eventually lost his ability to pick up a scent.

But then this happened.

During a recent match, he got kicked in the face, and the accident allowed him to smell again for the first time in 20 years.

"I had an operation last year where they drilled into my nose to make me breathe better through it, but it didn't work." he said. "So where the surgeons failed this bloke's size 12 boot worked."

Baker recognized the smell of gas near a school a few days later, and reported the leak to authorities, preventing a potential disaster.
