A team of Australian YouTubers just broke the Guinness World Record for the highest basketball ever shot. ‘How Ridiculous’ is a bunch of guys who love “sport, trick shots and making a difference,” according to their YouTube channel.

It can be remembers that How Ridiculous first held the record back in 2015 when they successfully recorded a basketball shot of 126.5m (415 feet) at the Gordon Dam in Tasmania, Australia. In May 2016, however, Dude Perfect stole the record with their 162m (533 feet) shot from the Cotter Ranch Tower in Oklahoma City, United States.

Well, How Ridiculous just successfully regained the title this month with a shot made from 180m (593 feet)!

In a YouTube video posted on their channel, the group tells us:

“On only the THIRD attempt, Derek breaks the Guinness World Record for the highest basketball shot ever, swishing one from a massive 180.968m (593.73 feet).”

How Ridiculous, composed of Brett Stanford, Derek Herron and Scott Gaunson, definitely pushed themselves to win their record again.

According to Derek:

“It was a surreal moment nailing it on the third shot. I watched the ball head towards the rim and saw the net move but still had my doubts that it went in until I saw Scott going crazy.”

The mind-blowing basketball shot was done at the Mauvoisin Dam in Valais, Switzerland.

The place, of course, is known for its awesome valley backdrop. The group said they had a hard time looking for a flat surface where they can put the hoop. They later found a spot and the world record attempt was made.

It turned out to be a smashing success!

When we think of people over the age of 50, we often think of dads cracking dad jokes or grandpas doting on little grandkids. There's hardly ever any coverage of men who are still considered conventionally attractive over the age of 50 (unless they're Hollywood hunks like Brad Pitt or Clint Eastwood).

But the thing with older men (and also women) is that they age like fine wine. Despite the fact that we think they're old and fatherly, there are still a lot of men who put a lot of effort into looking good and staying fit and healthy. Below are some photos of men aged 45 and above who will show you that men can be drop-dead gorgeous at any age!

Also, may this serve as a reminder to everyone that there's absolutely no age limit to being fit. So never use the excuse that your muscles are getting too weak to become more toned because if these guys can pull it off, so can you!

30 Epic Architectural Fails That Are So Bad They’re Hilarious

An architect plays a very important role and, for the most part, there is always almost little or no room for error. Besides, any design or conceptual flaw will be visible for everyone to see if he or she does commit a mistake during the process.

Case in point, the architects involved in these projects you will see below definitely left their marks – but not necessarily in a good way.

I’m guessing some of these are either unintentional errors or that the architects weren’t paid enough for the job!
