Awesome Video Of The DayAn Interesting Response
This video is pretty average in a lot of ways - there are about a billion videos of people punching each other in the face on YouTube - but it does have one redeeming factor: it marks the first time in recorded human history that somebody has responded to a punch in the face with the phrase "Ah, fuck - I can't believe you've done this."

I'd estimate that it's happened around 14 times in a handful of different languages, but never before has there been a camera around to document it. This 11 second-long video marks the very first time that it's been recorded for posterity's sake, so don't write this off as another typical dude-gets-punched-in-the-face-on-YouTube video.
