A recent video was uploaded that shows Arnold Schwarzenegger being hit from behind with a flying kick to the back. Likely due to Schwarzenegger's celebrity status, it quickly went viral.

Schwarzenegger talked to Today about the incident, and had a request for people.


He wanted people to focus on the reason that he was in South Africa in the first place: the fourth annual Arnold Classic Africa competition.

The Arnold Classic Africa is a gathering of over 24,000 athletes of all ages and abilities participating in various and athletic events.

Schwarzenegger said he appreciated everyone's concern, and he was not significantly injured by the attack.

Instead, he highlighted one of the athletes competing, a young para archer.

There are no shortage of other determined athletes who competed at the event to focus on.


In addition, he said that if you do still feel the need to share the video, share a blurry one.

People were still pretty impressed by Schwarzenegger's ability to take a kick, and his attitude about the whole situation, though.



Schwarzenegger's message is clear: Don't focus on the person trying to disrupt the event, focus on the amazing athletes there to compete and show off their skills.

The Arnold Sports Festival promotes physical activity and fitness throughout the world, and has regular competitions for those athletes wanting to compete. There are prizes for some of the events, but promoting general fitness is a big theme.

The Arnold Classic Africa competition is only one of several throughout the world. There are also Classic events in Australia, Spain, Brazil, and Hong Kong.

If you think you might be interested in attending or competing in one of these competitions, you can find more information on the Arnold Sports Festival website.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
