I don’t speak German, though I do like some German food and theologians. I do however love the word Schadenfreude, which basically means “pleasure derived from the misfortune of others”1. I like this word so much because it conveys a very real feeling every now and then.
I don’t usually get pleasure out of other people having misfortune but every now and then it happens. Such as with this video that I saw thanks to Kirby. Two people on high on trucks crash their Geo Tracker into a fence, only to discover there was a bee hive located in the spot they crashed. Just watch the video.
I believe Gary Lee could be a hero of mine now. Maybe this is a case of instant justice but I’m going with the German word. Anyhow, I hope you have enjoyed this brief moment of Schadenfreude. I know I have.
