World’s Most Amazing Videos

Here’s a blast from the past. I’m pretty sure I haven’t even watched this video in a couple of years. It certainly predates Doin Work’s existence, so there’s no reason not to share it here. I’m not sure what made me think of it, although I have been watching a lot of Tru TV lately. Watch as this typical day at a California beach turns ugly, with some stellar commentary….


Doin Animal Attacks

CBS released the footage above today. This is the most recent chapter of when animals attack, unless you count a cowboy taking out a reporter in the pregame this past weekend. This however is as intense as gets in the circus ring. I guess that’s why I chose the safe career route, and instead sit at a cubicle all day where the biggest threat to my health is carpel tunnel. I never thought the trainers treated their animals very well, and these lions must have felt the same way. There’s no concrete reason as to why an animal would attack, but prodding them with that pole isn’t helping anything. The thing I didn’t understand about the trainers actions was that he kept prodding the lions after they had already attacked him, and the lion seemed to be pulling back. I doubt we’ll ever know what provokes animals to attack, but I know that this trainer is lucky to have both his arms still intact! This whole thing reminded me of a Dave Attell bit on why animals attack. Enjoy if you’ve never heard it!


Doin Playoff Power Rankings

We haven’t put up any power rankings up for a long time, and don’t really need to anymore now that the regular season is over. Today we were debating about playoff teams, and some of us thought certain teams were stronger than others, and decided to rank them. No explanations for the rankings, just how we feel about each of these teams going into the October classic. Cincy and Atlanta seem to have the least support. Can you blame us though?!?
