“Schadenfreude” is a german word that literally translates as “Harm Joy”. No, it’s not a doom metal band from Hull, it’s basically when you derive pleasure from being somebody else’s misfortune.
As grim as that sounds, we all feel a bit of the old schadenfreude kick in from time to time. Think you don’t? Then we challenge you to watch these amazing ski slam videos and not raise a smile (along with the odd wince, and gasp).
Don’t worry, we’re not judging you. Honest.
