I don’t own a GoPro camera, but I do like watching GoPro videos! In all seriousness, I don’t really have the traditional “extreme” need for one, and they just really started coming out when I was getting out of the Marine Corps – plus I never would have put one on my Kevlar (helmet to you civilians out there in SQ Nation), or even my chest rig. Regardless, the HD video footage really is awesome as you can tell from these kids who decide to plant their GoPro camera in between some local train tracks. What did they capture? Just a screaming freight train clocking in at over 75MPH.
If you’ve got 11 seconds of free time before you head home from work or school today, then you need to watch this outstanding video of a guy who let his awesome haircut get a little too close to an oncoming freight train. You don’t have to be a genius or hold a PHD in physics to figure out how much force someone on a speeding freight train could kick someone standing off to the side with (hello concussion), but at least it’s entertaining! I think this pretty much sums up the whole “selfies have gone too far” case; a selfie in front of a speeding freaking freight train? Wow, cool idea man – yeah, go for it.
