My favorite is the guy who stared down the charging gorilla without flinching… what’s yours?

Because that guy’s got freaking ice water in his veins.

So does the guy charged by the elephant. Seriously. How the hell do you not freak out with that coming at you?

But the guy doing that dumb stunt in the water with a tiger shark coming right at him… well, not so much.

And those folks in the jeep chased by the tiger — I’m pretty sure we learned how to say ‘get me the hell out of here’ in the local language.

Or the kid in the same river as the crocodile.

You get the idea. 7 close calls… different animals, different environments.

Different levels of danger.

Can you guess what #1 will be?

Whatever your guess was, it’s almost guaranteed to be wrong. Seriously.

There are some badasses in this video.

Badasses weren’t always hard to find — they used to be pretty abundant. Like that gorilla guy.

Here’s a book by someone who’s been there himself and wants to see the day badasses become abundant again.

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.

Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):

Why be average? It’s so overrated.

Everyone does that.

You need to Do Epic Sh-t.

If you don’t think so, add some more meat to your diet and read this while you wait for your steak to grill:
