No Guts, No Glory -- Or Testing Products Sold On TV
Kudos to Holly and friends for even attempting to use this weird contraption called the Aqua Skipper. They not only were brave enough to spend their hard earned cash (hopefully it comes with a money back guarantee, or Holly will improve her skill on it) but they were brave enough to post a video of them as they 'test drive' the Aqua Skipper online, showing they at least have a sense of humor.
I can't quite figure out how the people who produce this product ever got it into production. Who do you suppose looked at it and said "Oh yeah! We'll sell millions of these and get rich!"? I'm not sure which is scarier, the brave attempt by Holly et. al. to ride this contraption or the person who designed it to begin with.
But here at Defeating The Squirrel we applaud those who show us that it's not wrong to laugh at yourself sometimes, and that taking life uber seriously all the time won't necessarily make you happy. We also applaud anyone who thinks outside the box and inspires othes to do the same.
If you have a great video of you doing something brave, foolhardy(Without risking your neck, I don't want any lawsuits) or just gutsy, send it to me, I may make you famous!
