3. Owner of Segway Inc. dies on Segway
Call it a twist of fate, or just plain idiocy. James W. Heselden had recently taken charge of the Segway company – you know, those annoying, two wheeled devices that were supposed to be all the rage, but instead have been adopted only by postal officers and mall cops? Out for a victory ride, perhaps, Heselden accidentally steered his Segway off the cliffs near his home in England. As the old saying goes, live by the Segway, die by the Segway.
2. Man dies after playing too much video games
To say that Lee Seung Seop had a video game addiction is somewhat of an understatement – he quit his job in order to devote more time to playing. In August 2005, he began a marathon video game at a local South Korean coffeeshop. Playing for 50 hours straight, only stopping for naps or bathroom breaks, he collapsed from dehydration and heart failure. Game over.

The humor section of Elite Daily is not typically the kind of place you’d expect to find a recording of a lecture on innovative HR practices. Innovative human resource practices are still human resource practices, and human resource practices aren’t traditionally a source of entertainment. Tarun Shakyawar, a student at a business school in India, […]

There are two ways to view education in this world. I’m not saying this to sound profound, poetic or because I want a deep opening paragraph. I’m saying it because that’s how the Oxford Dictionary defines it. In the Oxford Dictionary, education has two definitions. 1. The process of receiving or giving systemic instruction, especially at […]
Some may say the man in this tornado-chasing video is a daredevil. I, however, say the phrase “dumber than dirt” applies in this situation. This Australian man drove into the Outback to chase a tornado. He did it not for science or filmmaking, mind you, but because he wanted to take a selfie. As the […]

Recently the National Bureau of Economic Research released a study concluding that New York is the unhappiest city in America. #Sh*tIAlreadyKnow, or as my good friend Neil said, “Methinks this didn’t have to be a whole study.” Of course, New York is the most miserable city. In fact, we’re probably the only city that would […]
People matter… sort of. It’s a fine balance we keep between being ourselves and giving into the wants, likes and preferences of others. Throughout our lives, people influence us in ways both large and small. In passing, people may affect our moods, our simplest of actions and decisions; however, those who have a greater influence […]
Nowadays, it’s fairly in vogue to tell people that you think music festivals just aren’t like they used to be. Even though most of the people who complain about stuff like that are admittedly insufferable, it’s hard to argue that they don’t have a point. As festivals and gatherings become increasingly more mainstream, it’s only […]
Living in NYC, we’ve really seen it all. But now, we really get to see it all as a naked man wearing barely a loincloth currently practices yoga on a rooftop near 30th and 3rd. Is it weird that the first question that popped into our heads was, “How can you do yoga on the […]
Humans aren’t the only candidates for rehab. Four elephants at the Wild Elephant Valley in Yunnan Province, China, were once addicted to opium-laced bananas, but now, after a year-long course of methadone, they are clean. Keepers discovered the elephants were addicted to something when some who arrived at the sanctuary became aggressive and restless. Soon, they ran tests […]
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the infamous fight between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber. Well, Stephen Colbert broached the subject on his show and the results were nothing short of hilarious. Colbert framed the fight as if it were an international conflict in order to highlight the sheer ridiculousness of the entire situation. […]
