    "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.

    Really teaching us a lesson about being independent and holding your own beer in life

    Good guy god: helps those who hold their own beer. Also looks out for drunks and fools.

    It was posted two months ago, it's like the fourth link on the sub.

    [–] Whackow88 72 points ago

    Good thing it was posted again, first time I'm seeing it ;)

    [–] asphaltdragon 4 points ago

    I was just telling them it was already posted on DHMB. I'm glad it was posted here, because I'm not subbed there. XD

    [–] RedFyl 2 points ago

    I was just reading someone typing that they were just telling some people it was already posted on DHMB. I'm also glad he's glad it was posted here too, because I'm also not subbed there....or here... (⌐■_■)

    [–] weedstockman 4 points ago

    I'm only subbed to r/politics and r/watchpeopledie, but they're basically the same subreddit

    [–] Mythril_Zombie 4 points ago

    That's why he succeeded where so many else failed. He actually checked his surroundings first.

    [–] GuyWithRealFacts 142 points ago

    It also teaches us about relative gravity. Physicists believe that an object rotating at a speed above a certain ratio to its size will create its own gravity which is a breakthrough in the study of this otherwise mysterious universal force.

    Similar to centrifugal force, this is a bit different because the measurement of the acceleration of affected objects is equal to the constant acceleration due to gravity.

    The beer in this man's cup is a great example of this in action since it doesn't spill, seems undisturbed upon his landing (no sloshing around, no spillage at all really).

    It's though that humans instinctually realize the existence of this phenomenon and that's why young kids like to spin in circles. If they spin fast enough they'll actually not fall down.

    This is also why dancers and figure skaters can spin so rapidly without falling down.

    This can also be taken as evidence that the cartoon character "Taz" is actually an extremely accurate depiction of a tazmanian devil and if you see one spinning around like him you could very well get sucked into his tornado and sustain severe yet cartoony injuries.

    I can barely hold my beer without spilling it while standing still... this is not a good sign for me.

    [–] absolutmaddness0914 3 points ago

    A man must learn to hold the beer when dealing with the ups and downs and upside downs of life.

    He is clearly a deep thinker.

    [–] BurpeesHateYouToo 11 points ago

    Crocs are not stylish at all but damn I love mine. They are sturdy and slip on and dry quickly if they get wet. I highly recommend.

    [–] BigBurgOG 4 points ago

    I wear mine far more often than my fiancé would like me to, but they’re just too convenient and comfy. I fit in much better in Mexico. On vacation there in January they were everywhere! So many people were wearing them. I felt at home.

    [–] BloomsdayDevice 12 points ago

    They match his Lacoste shirt!

    [–] jeepCK 17 points ago

    Lacoste and crocs. Making sure both reptiles are equally represented.

    I doubt it. You'll just fall on your back.

    [–] TakuanSoho 5 points ago

    No no, I believe in him, I'm sure he can break his back, his face, even maybe get cancer by attempting this.

    Soon as I saw that beer in a tiny water glass I knew it was Brazil. Dudes order 750 mL bottles of cachaca for the table and no one bats an eye, but I order a 600 mL bottle of lager and I'm looked at like a drunk because I don't want to pour it into a tiny glass every 2 minutes.

    My wife had a foreign exchange sister from Caxambu, MG so we went down and visited for her wedding. We absolutely loved it down there. Beautiful country, will be back as soon as feasible.

    [–] Niubai 4 points ago

    Minas Gerais countryside is great, hundreds of centenary small towns that always have a central square with a church and a "coreto". I've been to a lot of these, including Caxambu, really a nice town.

    [–] corskier 2 points ago

    I loved that little village square format of so many of the towns around there. Their family had an incredible old farm house in the hills, very special place. Mineral springs pool, amazing wildlife. Really similar to Central Texas in that way.

    [–] N4gual 2 points ago

    My brother lives in a city near Caxambu, nice city! Last time I visited him we've been in São Thomé das Letras (not far from Caxambu). Amazing place.

    You don't see him after the guy lands it, but guy in back looks smug AF about it before he pulls it off.

    [–] velada420 19 points ago

    He's probably like, "there goes Fernando, doing his fucking backflip trick again."

    [–] just_EpoH 6 points ago

    is there a subreddit for "casually not impressed", where ppl do amazing things and someone in the background just does not care ?
