    As if there was any doubt, Hafthor Bjornsson—aka "The Mountain" from Game of Thrones—recently proved that he is a very strong man.

    The Mountain had already been named Europe's strongest man. Over the weekend, he added to his legacy by setting a record in the World's Strongest Viking competition.

    Bjornsson broke a world record that, according to IronMind, had stood for 1,000 years. What did he do? He took five steps while carrying a log over 30 feet long that weighed 1,433 pounds.

    It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that he won the competition.

    According to his Instagram account, Bjornsson now has his eyes set on the World's Strongest Man event.

    That is one of the biggest WTF moments for me. Was he just lying from the beginning and decided he'd try to convince people he was good at something or was Jimmy fucking with him and Howard believed it and ran with it? It is just so insanely obvious he didn't hit it 300 yards once let alone a number of times. Hell, a layout of the range later showed his claims weren't even possible. He's such a weirdo. In the words of the late Arthur Lange, "You're an insane weeer-dough".

    One look at that swing and you can see that he couldn't hit the ball 300 yards if you let him tee it up and hit it 3 times.
    You're right he is a major weirdo. He choses to lie when there is no reason to and none of the ass-kissers around him would ever say anything to call him out.

    You don't even have too look. Listen to a professional golfer hit a 270 yard drive. "THUWAAAACKKKK!!!!!!!" Then listen to Howard's "plunk"

    Has to be. Surely the show would've had him back on for at least an interview if he survived. Howard wouldn't turn his back on a bro he'll "always love". :rip2:
