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!

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