Look at the rise of that crossing. Most truckers probably notice and stay away, but sheesh, it would seem like after half a dozen high-center problems, they might think about regrading the roads to prevent high-centering vehicles.

Moose induced amnesia. There's got to be a few jokes in that.

Incredible!!!

Burchey had better beware... Hike with a moose, and maybe never remember it. grin

knowing there are some space fans on this board, here's something experimentally and artsy, and as far as I understand this video, it is every space shuttle mission launch ever, all in one frame in sync

Not sure how many of you ride bicycles to stay fit. I have no mountains here, so cycling is my cardio thing (when my arm is not in a cast like right now cry). Tour de France soon back on, and everyone will talk about how super-human these modern athletes are. Well, are they? Here's a reconstruction video of a classic 1910 stage which today would never make it on the schedule (TV needs daylight I guess...). Just amazing when you consider they did that 100 years ago, before electrolyte drinks and support vehicles, domestiques, etc...

one of the coolest videos I've found in a while - and I never stood on a skate board in my life. Impressive doesn't even begin to describe this guy:

Re: the Yosemite Range of Light video a few posts up, WOW!!! Such beautiful time-lapse and music (I'm a musician, so am a little more picky about music). Exceptional video!!

Same for the Mont Blanc speed para-skiing video! Amazing and beautiful!

Thanks for posting these!

If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracle of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.

This is Orville, the cat who flies. His brother, Wilbur, seems a tad nervous. Guess it seemed to be the Wright thing to do.
