This Samurai Splitting a Baseball in Half is the Coolest Thing You'll See All Day

Watch modern day samurai Isao Machii slice a speeding baseball in half.

This is swordsman Isao Machii. He earned that title because he is as good with a katana in his hands as I am with a fork eating macaroni and cheese—which is to say he's phenomenal.

Standing on an elevated platform 30 feet away from where a baseball is shot toward him at 100 mph, Machii cuts the ball cleanly in half with said sword. It is exhilarating and incredible at the same time, and it's made even more impressive by the fact that the dude is wearing a Kimono and sandals.

This is by far the best thing you'll watch all day.
