    • Mitts713

      It's a joke, you tools. Relax.

      • Pete

        As a post a few down, or even on the second page, yes… but as the first post on a post about a man who did what many of us only think super heroes, or those who are "trained" can, then that was well out of place, and well out of order.

    • xanivan

      you're not a chiver, FUCK YOU

    • hoovus

      Fuck man! Go be a horny teenager somewhere else! You disgust me…

    • jkrranger

    • beefcstew

      I wish I could down vote this again

    • F.S.M.

      Congrats on the most thumb downed comment in history. Hitler couldn't have done better.

      • Always Last

        Wow! You people are a bunch asswipes. So many rules on theChive now and YOU don't realize that YOU are the douchenozzles. theCHive was always fun because nobody took any of it seriously – now the internet police/theChive police are here!! Occupy theChive!!!!!!!!!!!

    • John

      You are an idiot. We all love boobs but real men can step aside for a moment and recognize something great

  • Un-chive

    Get rid of the iphone banner ads.. At least make them stop popping up after clicking X

    • Computer

      get a computer

    • ChicO85T

      pay the 99 cents for the damn app and just get over yourself

      • HatBomb

        Yeah, but the app sucks ass.

      • Endo

        There is no 99 cent app anymore dumb ass.

        • John

          Click the x enough.. It goes away

    • Vee

  • bh4q

    This guy restores my faith in humanity. Chive on hero

    • some-dude

      Makes me proud to be Armenian. I wish I could do even 25% of what this man did for the people around him.

    • Hero_Status


      • Always Last

        You all realize this is a B.S. story right? It isn't true – google is your friend.

  • MattKL

    What an amazing story. The man is a true hero.

    • Tommy Bahamy

      half what this guy is? most of us will never do something even remotely close 2 what this man did…

  • craig

    Thats a real hero, if I've ever heard of one.

  • Chopper

    Russia sounds like a pretty dangerous place to live. But a safe place to get your shoes repaired!

  • Ballin Thomas

    Meh. I once saved dozens of orphans from a burning building that was being attacked by fire-proof sharks. True story.

    • meh

      True Story..till you woke up and your mommy changed your diaper.

    • fitdude

      First, you're as funny as my left nut, second, you're trying too hard and third using "true story" makes you sound like a complete shitbird!

      • Juan

        How funny is your left nut?

    • Todd

      I hate sharks with every once of my sac, and to think there are fire proof asshole sharks is just horrifying. Haha

    • Jack_LeMac

      People need to lighten up

  • etcrr

    Doing what has to be done and putting others needs before his own Congrats to Shavarsh a true hero

    • pleasedie

      Oh fuck off you wanker ,you just say stuff like this to get a positive rating.


      you should learn from this bloke and do our eyes a favour by not commenting the same bullshit vitriol you vomit out when you type this crap.

      • Lame ass you are

        You are just a jealous piece of shit. You could try being intelligent for once in your life, no wait that's not the popular thing to do for trolls. so put your head in a blender that would work

    • randy

      i wish you were one of the people on the bus who did not get saved….

  • KCCO

    I saved a dollar once.

    • Endo

      You missed the boat on that one. You meant to say that you saved 15% once by switching to Geico.

    • Habsy

      and off to McDonald's you went.

    • shadowstein

      -92?? ive just re-lost my faith in humanity. people need to man up and stop treating every joke like a personal insult.

  • Julio Capo Amaya

    Saved people from water and fire… hes gotta be alien!

    • Mickael Duncan

      Pretty sure wind is next, so be nervous if you see him on the same flight as you.

    • spartan

      haven't you seen war of the worlds or signs?? aliens can't do water

  • Ashley the c*nt

    I once saw a bus crash into a river as well. I was going to jump into save everyone but I had just gotten my hair done and I didn't want it to get wet. Oh well.

    • Slauterhause

      Do you think you're funny? Grow up.

      • LeahciM

        Let this person live up to teir namee

        • LeahciM


    • jake

      you, miss, are a moron

    • fitdude

      Fitting title you have Assley, a big fat cunt indeed

      • shadowstein

        good lord. what is wrong with you people! are you allergic to jokes?

  • dontsellout

    FINALLY a decent post on this semi porn site. Do more of this chive ,we have millions of porn sites but very few entertainment/fun sites.

    • therealguy

      pshh. "semi-porn"? you clearly haven't used the internet if you think the chive is anywhere similar to a "semi-porn" site.

      • facepalm

        Typical chive fanboy.

      • vvv

        actually dontsellout is correct. Chive is awesome but the amount of 'look at these hot chicks' post make it a semi-porn site.

        • SheriffPablo

          semi-porn? I've been coming to thechive for years and have yet to see two big rigs fucking. show me some hot kenworth on peterbilt action baby!

          • 0331

            What? You don't remember the layout of Optimus Prime?

            • SheriffPablo

              who wants solo action? we need a good old fashioned 18 wheeler orgy up in here!

          • Si1entStatic

            I'd rather see some euro trash action. like Mercedes on Volvo, Renault on Iveco.. something I don't see all the time……

            • SheriffPablo

              Let's leave the German cars out of it? i don't need to see a BMW taking a shit on a Volkswagen.

              • Jimmy

                You could get Mazda, Honda and Nissan involved for some full on automotive Buka….Sorry, Too far!

          • someguy

            you sir, are clever and witty. i commend you

        • Pete

          Yeah, I agree – there is lots of awesome stuff on the Chive, but I must admit I tend to skip the yet another girls post – I can go anywhere for that.

          • Cecil

            Yep. Hump days and the gap are nice, but only when tastefully interwoven with other stuff. It's kind of sexist on the CHives part to assume men only want to see women without enough clothing.

          • Careful

            My thoughts exactly

    • phoenixpwns

      Well said dontsellout.

  • craig

    And to think the closest thing young punks these days have to a hero is the wet blankets on reality shows

    • Big Mike

      Shut up grandpa, get back to the old folk's home and watch Matlock.

      • craig

        You should be praising me for being able to use the inter web lil boy. Does your parents know your on here?

      • jack of all trades

        I miss Matlock. Always eating hot dogs and putting criminals in their place.

  • davey


  • Chester

    "The most interesting man in the world"''s cousin.

    • Cecil

      More like his dad!.

  • Farrgar

    What a man, what a wonderful brave and selfless man.

  • Matt

    You've all got jokes, but do you have a Man Card like Shavarsh? Nope.

    • dirtysteve99

      because anyone who feels the need to talk about a 'man card' is a fucking child?

    • Kal

      We laugh to keep from crying…

  • AKStallion

    Great man and a great story. However, a little editing would go a long way here. Out of respect for the sacrifice this man made, couldn't we have least given each slide a quick scan for simple spelling errors and missing words???

    • Logan Ouderkirk

      yea "damb" was pretty glaring…

      • some-dude

        The images were probably created by someone who does not speak english as a native language…I doubt the chive would go through and create all these captions themselves…

    • mickey

      Read this again, then ask the same question…sometimes a bag of hammers is still a bag of hammers.

  • ileney

    You can tell who the true Chivers are! They are the ones here congratulating and complimenting a selfless person. It's obvious you so-called 'Chivers' skipped the story of the Chive's own Drake Earl! These posts (including Mind the Gap Mondays) are what make the Chive the Best Site in the World!

    • facepalm

      You were making sense till you mentioned mind the gap post ,keep fapping to this site frat boy.

      • Shawn

        If you don't like it, go somewhere else. No need to keep putting the same comments insulting people.

        • Always Last

          You guys are funny – this is a fake story.

  • so316

    take out the dumb ass distracting cartoons, other wise this guy is a true hero

    • Jack_LeMac

      So he's less of a hero because someone used drawings to illustrate his story? Someone should let him know

      • so316

        no that's not what i meant, i just thought they were distracting.

  • Navin R. Johnson

    Wow! thats just one kick ass dude!

  • Stephen Davidson


  • Serj

    Every one loves him in Armenia-a true hero!

    • Shar11

      ❤ armenia

  • Insnsprtn

    True heroism like that should be motivation for everyone.

  • Seldi84

    #7 Dudes like a russian Batman

    • some-dude

      Except he's Armenian.

      • Seldi84

        I saw USSR and thought Russian.

        • some-dude

          It's cool. Wasn't trying to be a dick… the communist influence didn't do Armenia much good and bred a generation of shadiness, but at least it saved it from being torn apart by the countries around it.
