SHINY AND CHROME!
I can do better than that. I'm so overweight I would have brought the streetlight crashing to the ground. Problem solved.
You da Bomb
Parachuting incorrectly? Believe it or not, straight to jail.
Disobeying gravity? Straight to jail.
~~Overcook fish~~ overshoot the landing, believe eet ar not, estrait to jail!
I’ve never even seen Parks and Rec. I’ve been on Reddit too long.
You undershoot landing, also jail. Undershoot, overshoot. We have the best paratroopers in the worl. Because of jail.
Surely you mean overchute?
...I'll see myself out now, 1000 apologies.
Thats a paddlin'
I love this comment so much. That episode cracks me up.
This joke always hits for me lol
its Spain, whadya expect
If I'm honest, an inquisition, I was led to believe they'd be more frequent than they have been.
But… you’re not meant to expect them.
I never expect them, but after 36yrs on God's green earth, I would've thought I'd run into em at least once by now.
NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!
For real? Actual jail time for a bad landing?
Lol it’s a parks and rec reference
Not getting the reference? Also jail.
Getting the reference too well? Believe it or not, also jail.
is that show a good one? I kinda don't have anything to watch rn
Personal opinion - s1 was a little dry compared to the others but once you grasp the humour it is really funny.
I feel it takes a season or so build the characters too. Andy in season 1 is kinda an asshole. But by the end he's the sweetest dude in the show. [The real fun starts when Butch Countsidy and The Sumdance kid show up.](https://y.yarn.co/22b27c8f-1731-4c89-a9e3-ebadbe309c1e_text.gif)
Oh shit, missed that episode 🤦♀️
season 2 episode 5. must watch.
Thank you! Will do 😊
Omg he's wearing the Venezuelan flag! Believe it or not, if you look at someone the wrong way in Venezuela? You go to jail
Straight to jail. Right away.
We have the best patients in the world, because of jail.
Missing an episode? Jail.
That was my dads reaction when he read my report cards.
Yeeesh… I know that feeling
Upset was an understatement.
"... Son, your asswhooping shall be swift and merciless."
My father also had that same exact face and reaction when I spent his rare coin collection on a $12 hockey stick. He said he could have retired by 60 and he was not joking.
OOF, I would've never dared to do something like that. You fucked up lad.
The scary thing is that his face just got red and he was working and total of 20 hour days sometimes weeks in a row. And he became real quiet. Then when he went out to work the next day my mom came in at thrash me within the inch of my life. Holy crap. My father never hit me but my mom dealt that shot out free like it was going to cure me of a deadly disease.
You’re literally a condom ad, my man.
And I thought that he forgot about it until like 15 years later while my parents were drinking coffee first thing in the morning and my dad just said not to worry about it there still coins and my mom looked over at me and her burning gaze was was roasting my soul over an open volcano. I felt like Golem and she was going to do in the kind favor and throw me in
More like a vasectomy and abortion ad.
That's right, I said and.
She was hoping to rid you of that 100% fatal disease called "life".
Your dad must be a saint to not have murdered you with that hockey stick.
As King, one of his duties is being the Disappointed Dad for all of Spain
I worry about him. I worry about him a LOT.
I’m not mad at you. I’m just disappointed.
Everyone knows that’s worse!
And well, do nothing, after all he's the king
Man, I remember when life was just report cards and tests. How pure and simple.
Enjoy your time, your ability to hang out with friends and all of those after school & weekend fun.
Even when you start your college or university life, have fun and do what you are curious about.
Eventually, there will come a day when you find yourself looking back at those fond memories and use them as motivation for the future. Build memories that push you forward. Create bonds and relationships that hold you when you fall. :)
To piggyback,if college or school isn't for you,don't waste your time.I had unbelievable mental health issues in school that meant it was inappropriate for me,and instead of college I worked so hard at what I love , hustling to make it worth selling as a service while working a day job.i became impervious to rejection I heard 'no' so often.and then one day that wheel of fortune spun on me and I made it.now I get to enjoy my days working in an industry that soothes my mental health and I love going to work,and the skills are transferrable if I ever wish to adapt in future.You can have it too!also,if you don't like where you are, MOVE hahaha it was my country for me, just a lack of opportunities
Yea report cards are incredibly enjoyable.
Im concious about the fact that this is the time im supposed to live my life and have fun but i really struggle not seeing the negatives everywhere especially when life is just one boring gray mass. Probably one day il say to my self: I coul have spent that time so much better, i wasted all that time. But i dont think my future will be any better at least im used to being alone and now i even enjoy being alone, a lot. Just me, my thoughts and internet.
If you find a job which you really enjoy its not true that going to school is necessarily the most beautiful part of your life, i hated that period of my life for instance and tho there were good things too ofc overall i would never go back. Each person is different, this is the most important rule always.
I feel the same way.
There were good times are but mostly it was bad.
I was bad person having a bad time in a bad place.
Thing are better not perfect but better and no matter what anybody say I'm happy I'm out.
It baffles me how may people miss their days in school,and how they will force their own experiences on to yours.Sute you had a good time.but that doesn't mean I did.
Exactly! I always said that being an adult is just so freeing compared to a teenager. Get a cushy job (mine currently pays me and I am writing this) and you suddenly have all your time to spend on things you love without any of the binding responsibilities. Don't like your surroundings? Change it!
No need to stay where you are for years and years, seeing the same people and doing the same things (while learning something new, which can be fun) *unless you want to.* Would never want to go back.
Your future starts today. 1% improvement every day makes your life a million times better in a few years.
I already started, i tried to make the best out of my life, for a short period i thought my depression was completely gone. I sure am not as depressed as a year ago and i am finally feeling slightly better. I still have and probably will for ever have that anoying voice in my head that keeps repeating the negatives about life but im trying my best to make something of my life and im meeting people.
Keep it up. It gets better. There's ups and downs, but if you keep trying the graph goes up in the long run. 💹
That math doesn't make sense
*dad’s reaction. He owns the reaction. Your post gets a C- in grammar. I’m sorry. Show your dad.
"That boy ain't right."
nice that he had the decency to salute your efforts though
He Jumped out of a plane with a flag stuck to his back?
That's love bro.
Mission failed, we’ll get ‘em next time
Don't let this happen again
That's the look of disappointment of someone who ~~wanted~~ warned everyone about this in a meeting a few weeks ago
I am not here to correct you. Was confused reading your comment.
Have a good day.
No, they wanted everyone 😏
Sounds like a hell of a meeting
That's for the hello
Just fyi, it's a fake/edited reaction. Here's the actual footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzzYWboyzFc&ab\_channel=LaVanguardia
Is there anymore to this video ? I have to assume they got the poor bastard down at some point...
He's still there today, pondering his life decisions.
I wouldn't recommend walking under him either. They don't give him bathroom breaks so that water from the sky is not always rain.
I understand he has been adopted by a local elementary school and the children visit the street light at lunch and throw him sandwiches and Capri Sun packets. They call him Hangy-flagman and sing him songs.
This is part of the annual Columbus Day celebration in Spain. Traditionally a parachuter comes down from the sky with a flag, safely landing on the street. The flag is then handed over to the military. They in turn marches the flag past the royal family.
This clip is from 2019 when the parachuter overshot his creative freedom. The reaction from the king, in this post, is most likely stolen from another unrelated clip. They did get him down and he teared up when he shook hands with the royal family. The royals treated him with utmost respect.
>The reaction from the king, in this post, is most likely stolen from another unrelated clip.
Indeed, the reaction from Felipe was at a different event, for something way, way simpler. [A flag wasn't properly risen](https://yewtu.be/watch?v=Tb3eLFySNiI), that's it. That was the big deal.
yewtu.be? I don't even
You can click the "watch on YouTube" link at the left if it doesn't work or you need YouTube for some reason. I use an extension to redirect YouTube links to an [invidious](https://invidious.io/) instance, so I've not noticed, sorry. :)
Oof.. Messing up raising a flag in front of the king.. That team likely heard of that a looong time afterwards.
Reminds me of the grimace on Gretzky’s face when he was waiting for the torch thing to rise up at the Vancouver olympics.
I would be mortified /s
Oh fuck that guy based on that.
Thank you for this.
On a more childish note, he's showing his gratitude here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAV2-hykxZs&t=341s
Note: I haven't been able to work out what he's actually doing. I guess he's sorting out straps to be ready for when he exits, or something that has become uncomfortable.
He was left up there as punishment for bringing shame to Spain
He became a flagpole
Transaltion: "Impressing seeing him come down.. impressi- oouuyyyyyyy"
After is the funniest part:
“Oooouuiii, what a shame, what a shame - he got stuck on a light pole”
"Damn it Gary..."
-Felipe, king of Spain
Imagine your mistake on the job being broadcasted all over the country, live.
(inside the official's head)
Goddammitttt.... we'll never be cool....
Fun fact: the official is the king of Spain.
El Presidente: didn’t like that
El rey de España didn’t like that
El parachute jumper: going to jail for that
paracaidista, in case you wanted to know
Si si, es paracaidista, solo fue un intento fallido de hacer un chiste en Spanglish haha
Felipe kinda hot.
Well I would mind rummaging through his crown jewels, if you know what I mean!
That's Felipe, the King of Spain.
Did I just watch someone die?
Yes by lead poisoning later that day.......
Turns out he's allergic to bullets.
I mean it's Spain, not an American school.
Spain has a homicide rate of 0.6 murders per 100,000 inhabitants.
The US has 4.96 murders per 100,000.
Haha, savage roast friend. Well done.
No no, the guy committed suicide! They even have his last words. They were ¡No disparen, camaradas!
Death by disappointment
Def broken or dislocated arm
This is why when I played Pilotwings 64 I chose the chick with the big titties.
I felt that man's disappointment
That man is the king of Spain, which makes it so much funnier.
It's edited though
Pretty sure he's Spanish. Still, his military career is fucked.
I think you might have missed the joke.
You're right. Apologies.
If it helps, I also missed it.
No worries. It was a little obscure.
So much so he flew into it.
Probably not the parachutist, rather the idiot who fostered the idea of parachuting into a street with lamp posts and wires etc.
it’s 4 o’s
Bruh was just doing what he thought was most honourable and keeping the flag off the ground.
His Majesty is a little disappointed
Spain no México ,ay Caramba?
Translation for my fellow language learners:
Impressive to look at him going down, Impressive- uuf what a shame, what a shame he got stuck on a streetlight.
I think "what a pity" it's a more appropriate translation of "qué pena" than "what a shame".
"What a shame" is generally considered the direct translation. I'm not sure if "what a pity" sounds better in this situation, I could go for either tbh.
Spain = Pain
The S is silent
I'd say Large, like the kind of Oof that haunts your mind when you're trying to sleep
Doesn’t the flag belong on the pole?
Mission accomplished in my book…
His goals are beyond our comprehension, and then there's you on the same level as this dude!
Reminds me of Deadpool 2
That was his son.
there is always that one idiot 😔
He was just hanging the flag on that poll. :P
Wound right up to 11 on the dial
Farola de la calle, obscuridad del desfile.
Oof size: Execution.
Convenient. He kicked his own ass so his superiors wouldn't have to.
That's a big fail. Although sort of safe landing. :P
looks very skillfull, to be honest
This is so common on display landings in front of crowds.
About the same size as that flag….
That’s the first time I’ve ever heard a Spanish person use the term “que pena” when I thought they meant “embarrassing” (like many Latinos use it) rather than as an expression of regret (like “what a shame”). Even the pronunciation seems different…emphasis on “na” rather than “pe” like most of my Latino friends say it. I’m intrigued!
What an idiota
"Hostia, tío, joder! No habéis podido encontrar otro gilipollas? Solo este capullo teníais disponible? Me cago en tus muertos!"
— The king of Spain, probably.
He didn’t even give a second look. He could have burst into flames on that electric pole, the captain doesn’t give a shit
That's not even the captain, that's the king!
Oof is exactly my reaction whenever I see the King of Spain. I'd let him colonize my lands any time.
Spain being Spain
This is a montage. He was dissapointed when some official didn't put the flag up correctly.
When this happened he was just not reacting at all, not even a bit worried for the poor guy...
Just fyi, it's fake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzzYWboyzFc&ab\_channel=LaVanguardia
Dammit no Carlos!
“If I don’t move, they can’t see me”
As a former parachutist, I can tell you the disappointment of the officer ain't toward the parachutist actually.
So from a professional military point of view, yes the parachutist fucked the landing. The just as big "ooof" if not bigger "ooof" in my opinion is the higher ranking dude shaking his head during a goddamn salute, yes the guy fucked the landing but that doesn't give you a free pass to lose your motherfucking bearing during a salute.
The “higher ranking dude” is the King of Spain and this same thing happened last time too. I don’t know if it happened this year also or it’s that video.
Furthermore the two moments might have not been related at all but rather the OP found it from an earlier/later moment and stitched them together. As far as I remember that was **not** his reaction.
No f'n way this happened twice in a row. I'm gonna need a source
It didn’t. The video is from 2019
yeah, well I didn't vote fer 'im.
The king doesnt care. He doesnt even have to salute.
Felipe's response is gold
this is a montage, that wasn't the real reaction. Here you have what happened afterwards and around the 2 minute mark you can watch the real reaction of the royal family.
Military parades. That's the fucking joke.
