"How to get over a fence like a boss?"

The current generation has no idea how employment works.

The boss just tells -you- to carry him over the fence.

Yesssssss! I've had Jiemba's youtube open in a tab for a week now and I like to think that this counts as a successful summoning spell. His stunts are great, reminds me of some of the goofy bullshitty skate vids that come around sometimes where half the trick is how dumb the trick is on the face of it and yet the fuckin' execution is perfect.

The fails of the month vid is fantastic and full of sympathetic wince moments, though probably better after seeing some of the successful stunts.

This guy is amazing, but man I hope he does his own laundry.

If, like me, you've thought gymnastics is wonderful, but no one is quite sure what it's actually for ... well, this one guy has finally figured it out.

And it's totally amazing.

The opening video slowly took away my ability to be astonished by what he was doing, because it was so relaxed and matter-of-fact.

I like how his fails make it clear, and he talks about how many times he has to fail to succeed.
