Videos like this one is why the Internet was invented. Cameron Pilley, who, according to the YouTube description, holds the world record holder for hardest squash ball ever hit at 175 miles per hour, hits the ball at his brother. The result? A hole in the guy's back. (Thanks to Warrick Wilson, of Poulsbo, Wash., for the video.)
