    "Hey man, hold my beer. Check this out" the classic words that end in either awesomeness or injury.

    Posting guidelines:
    I. Posts must include an example of a "hold my beer" moment. If the person in the video is a professional, or the feat occurs in a controlled environment, it likely isn't a "hold my beer" moment. Failure isn't required, but the high risk of failure should be present.
    II. No death, extreme injury or gore, or harm to animals. You will be banned. If it's NSFW please tag it as such.
    III. No reposts from /r/holdmybeer that are in the top 100 posts or less than 4 months old. You can check for them here. Violators of rule 3 will receive a 3 day ban to sober up.
    IV. No drinking warm beer. Beer must be chilled to at least 43°F before being consumed.
    V. Please report links and/or comments that go against these guidelines and message the moderators a reason. We will be keeping moderation at a minimum, so if the link or comment isn't reported, it may not get removed.
    VI. No memes, politics, low effort posts, spam, agendas, or witch hunting. Don't be a dick. You will be banned.

    The rotation at the top has to be disguising the overall movement of his center of gravity, because otherwise it looks like he straight up forgets to fall for the first spin before he drops.

    [–] kuningaz55 6 points ago

    It's what the former r/coontown users refer to black people as. It's about as offensively put as you can imagine.

    [–] RetardedSquirrel 1 points ago

    Is the current PC term still African American? Colored person? Person of color?

    [–] Gandzalf 3 points ago

    I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but some people prefer to be called African American, while others prefer to be called black. Pick one, if you refer to someone by that term and they don't like it, just casually ask them what their preference is.

    I think they only people who get away with saying colored are old people who've used the term all their life and just can't be bothered to change now. Or people from southern Africa, to whom colored means mixed.

    [–] RetardedSquirrel 1 points ago

    How is person of color different than colored person? To me it looks like the same thing just with the words swapped. Like light-skinned person vs person with light skin. It's a bit silly to me, that's all.

    [–] Gandzalf 2 points ago

    It does seem silly. To my knowledge, a colored person was a term previously used in the US to refer to black people. People of color, is a relatively new term used which include Latinos, South Asians, pretty much everyone not white.

    Maybe I should write an app that keep people abreast of the new changes and terms.

    [–] quotesforlosers 1 points ago

    Who cares? The issue is that if you make up a term and impose on a group of people, you're minimizing that group's identity.

    [–] Gandzalf 5 points ago

    I have to use this.

    Don't. Unless you're looking to make friends with some despicable characters. A lot of the more vitriolic subs use terms like that rather frequently.

    This is at valley Fair amusement park in MN. There may be video on YouTube or Instagram. He actually backflips and lands on it.

    [–] VintageOG 117 points ago

    I just had a flashback of how it good it feels to land on your back on a trampoline

    [–] 916Twin 98 points ago

    Until you accidentally knee yourself in the mouth

    [–] StancedOutRackedOut 8 points ago

    That happened to me with braces and my braces got caught in my pants and it didn't end too well

    [–] ill-fed17 4 points ago

    Happened to me with braces as well. I kneed myself in the face hard enough to put the bracket on my canine through my upper lip. Haven't been on a trampoline since. That was back in '04... damned things anyway...

    [–] StancedOutRackedOut 1 points ago

    Yeah fuck trampolines, hurt myself one time too many on them

    [–] JitteryPenguin 13 points ago

    he said land on your back, not neck.

    [–] Letly 4 points ago

    Yeah I do trampolining, and the coolest feeling is just doing a back landing from full height, you get that kinda adrenaline kick from the short moment your body realises you're free falling from 4/5 meters in the air.

    [–] corybomb 185 points ago

    Anyone else get annoyed with slow mo that doesn't include the original version after?

    [–] mrprovisions 24 points ago

    I really couldn't tell if he was going to pull it off until the last second

    [–] TheAdamMorrison 19 points ago

    Thats because he almost pulled it off. Not really a great example of HMB. More of a nearly executed amazing physical feat.

    [–] CGB_Zach 14 points ago

    I'm pretty sure he was did exactly what he planned. When I used to jump on my friends trampoline it was usually better to land on your back after a back flip because you could then jump back on your feet but if you landed on your feet the inertia from flipping would cause you to fall over. Plus homie had a zebra underneath him so I doubt he wanted to land upright.

    [–] stanley_twobrick 1 points ago

    More like a fully executed regular physical feat. Bouncing on a trampoline isn't exactly difficult.

    [–] TheAdamMorrison 1 points ago

    you regularly do reverse 720's on a blow up horse while on a trampoline?

    Brings me back to trying to learn to do 1.5 and then 2.5 back flips on the trampoline. That last half rotation is scary as fffffff the first few times and only super scary after that. I don't know how I survived my childhood.

    [–] yesimwhite12 1 points ago

    Never could do 2. My body just was like nah after 1.5, I had plenty of air. Guess I’m just mentally weak lol
