Well, he was certainly able to teach them a lesson.

You just never know if you're going to end up moving in next to an absolutely awesome human being, or end up living next to a waking nightmare. It's all a gamble. With that being said, this guy's low-key neighbor hero is crushing it with his accordion skills. A true treat for the ears.

Sometimes people surprise us with their acts of selfless kindness. Like this dude who decided he wouldn't shoot his arrow after an opponent's equipment ended up malfunctioning.

Clearly, this dude vastly underestimated the Gaston that he was dealing with. That absolutely ruthless burn at the end there was really the icing on the cake. Maybe the dude will be inspired to double down on the pushup workouts for going forwards.

And here we have yet another reason to love Dave Grohl. It's a beautiful thing to see him step aside and let his daughter be the center of attention. With that being said, she also absolutely crushes her cover of Adele's "When We Were Young."

Just in case you were ever considering trying out base jumping, this guy's video of his base jump at a spot called "The Shard" is absolutely terrifying. The complete lack of hesitation is pretty surreal as well

Boss Docks Wages Illegally, Employee Crushes His Dreams

May it be a lesson to all bosses that bullying your employees isn't a good business strategy. It's also a lesson in how far some people are willing to go for "the principle of the thing." And this kind of stuff can happen at any level of employment, like in a fast food joint where this boss threatened the staff so all the employees walked out.

The Best Stuff People Found In The Garbage

"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.

Company Won't Hire Employee Directly, They Live To Regret It

The most mind boggling part about this scenario might be the fact that the boss had the audacity to call and ask questions about something their ex employee used to do for the company before they were asked to leave the company. Like, you burn a bridge, you can't proceed to walk over it. Check out another professional revenge with this customer who flooded an unresponsive ISP company with tickets

In this story, these employees decided to take a glorious, petty revenge on a boss that accused them of slacking. Suffice to say, it seems to have been successful.

Honestly, all this exceptional drone footage does a phenomenal job at painting a picture of sharks actually being peaceful. Of course, it can be hit or miss, and one should always exercise caution when you're swimming around in their domain, but it's nice to see that some of the massive beings don't live down to the nasty stereotype perpetuated by various films in Hollywood.
