Crowning Moments of Real Life Awesome

So anyway, I knew that the TV Tropes site had a section entitled ‘Crowning Moments of Awesome‘, in which they list a whole bunch of awesome moments from film, TV and other media. What I didn’t know was that they were doing a real world section. I therefore give you a run down of some of those moments, and a few others that spring to mind…

  1. I’m in two minds about this one. On the one hand, the adults involved should probably be in jail. On the other, the kids are awesome. Come the Zombie Apocalypse, I’m moving to Japan
  2. One punch! One punch!!
  3. Landing an aeroplane on a river? Yeah, that’s pretty cool.
  4. Guns are passe. You want to take out the trash? You need an axe.
  5. Buzz Aldrin shows us what he thinks of Moon Landing Hoax Theorists…
  6. I remember watching this episode of Robot Wars, the best one ever
  7. Wall of Death: 1, Criminal Mastermind: 0
  8. I think I’d find Flash Mobs annoying if, say, they turned up at work. But, y’know… Ninjas.
  9. I have no idea how many of these are genuine, but I don’t care. As examples of punch-the-air-laconic-Britishness, they rule.
  10. And finally, maybe it’s because he’s still new and hasn’t upset us all yet, but President Obama makes swatting a fly the coolest thing to happen in politics since, well, last November. Gordon Brown couldn’t swat a fly like that….
