If you watch Game of Thrones, I’m sure you know the character named Gregor Clegane, also known as “The Mountain” in the show and the books. The man looks as fearsome in real life – his name is Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, an Iceland native and a professional strongman competitor.

He is a consistent placer in the World’s Strongest Man competition for the past few years.

He’s “The Mountain” in Game of Thrones.

In real life, he’s a badass Strongman.

Weighing 412 lbs (29 stone) and standing 6’9 tall, you would think Björnsson will destroy anyone foolish enough to challenge him to a game of arm wrestling, especially one who is a mere 225 lbs (16 stone), almost half the Strongman’s size.

But this fearless dude, whose name is Devon Larratt, beat Björnsson THREE TIMES in a friendly arm wrestling match.


Don’t believe it? Well watch this epic match:

Larratt is actually a World Armwrestling League Heavyweight Champion, a title he won twice.

Still, you wouldn’t expect him to dominate a guy as massive as Björnsson – someone who recently hoisted a 9.8 meter long log on his shoulders…and took five steps carrying his load. He broke an existing 1000-year old record with this feat. But I guess armwrestling has its own techniques, stuff that can actually make you win against a hulk like Björnsson.

How would you feel if you see a very young child walking to school on his own? Would you be impressed? Or would you be alarmed about the fact that a child is travelling by himself without any adult companion? It’s a scary world out there, right?

According to the short documentary by SBS 2, this is a typical sight in Japan.

Although most tourists are shocked to see little kids walking by themselves, the practice is actually common in the country. This is a huge difference when compared with Western countries where parents make the effort to drive their children to school on a daily basis.

Divorced couple Chris and Shannon Neuman aren't letting their choice to grow apart turn them into bitter enemies. Instead, they revel in the fact that they have gracefully decided to end their marriage by posting a photo with the hashtag: #teamneuman #divorceselfie. It’s the first time in the history of couple selfies.

The photo resonated among thousands of people and went viral. I think it’s because of the brutal honesty and maturity of the couple.
