Scary-marine_medium

Via @bubbaprog. Special nomination. Finished second in Week 18 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 483 votes.

Please, please, please, call home the Marines we have stationed in Qatar and South Korea and everywhere else. We need them here at home. We need them to guard the out-of-bounds territories behind the goals in basketball and football games. Remember that time Dennis Rodman ran into a cameraman and kicked him? Heh, that'd make him think twice about being such a punk! YO that image goes out to all y'all stodgy 46-year-old sweater-wearin' dads in the Midwest. I see you, baby.

FELIX BAUMGARTNER.

Special nomination. Finished third in Week 22 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 144 votes.

Have you ever been to the top of the Willis Tower in Chicago? Imagine if it were 87 times taller. This is the height from which Felix Baumgartner hurled himself from his balloon.

I'm fine with flying in airplanes and standing around in skyscrapers, but this GIF absolutely flips me the **** out. Oh God. Oh God oh God oh God oh God. Oh well, he's wearing a helmet at least. That oughta keep him safe.
