We won’t blame you if the idea of mixing Michael Jackson with pole dancing sounds absolutely terrifying. But rest assured, the only unfortunate thing about this video of a midair acrobat “moonwalking” his way up and down the pole is how short it is. We could watch this for hours!
In the world of big wave surfing, there’s Garrett McNamara and then there’s everyone else. Not content to simply surf by on big waves, McNamara recently set a world record for surfing the biggest: a 90 foot monster off the coast of Nazaré in Portugal. That’s taller than an eight story building!
You know what they say hockey, it’s all fun and games until somebody decides to hug someone on the other team. In a sport where any reason is generally enough reason for opposing players to come to blows, this video illustrates that spontaneous displays of affection are not immune.
The Olympic Committee may not have any plans to allow robots into the 2012 Summer Games as of yet. But if they have a change of heart, we know at least one robot who will be prepared.
Robot NO.8 Kovacs is a small Japanese robot who has the type of skills on the high bar that even the best gymnasts would envy. While he does need a little help getting onto the bar, once he’s up there, his moves can’t be beat. Watch your back, Shawn Johnson.
Tricycle racing is the most fun you can have on three wheels. It’s also an easy way to ruin a perfectly good pair of shoes. Filmed in Powder Mountain, Utah by Devin Graham (the same guy who brought the internet the human slingshot), the custom-modified tricycles in this video were equiped with speedometers that recorded the trikes reaching speeds of up to 55 miles per hour.
When it comes to traditional forms of bike racing, staying on the bike is rule number one. With Cyclocross on the other hand, dismounting and dodging obstacles is par for the course. While we’re sure Cyclocross is tons of fun, from the looks of this video, it can also be pretty painful if, like Joey, you don’t see an upcoming hurdle and take a spill on the track.
You’re bound to meet a few interesting people when you take a year-long hitchhiking trip across the country.
Artist, traveler and self-proclaimed ‘lover of people’ Benjamin Jenks met exactly 930 when he and his raised thumb journeyed 5,000 miles from Los Angeles to Maine. Artist that he is, Ben put together a time-lapse video of his trip complete with photos of all 930 people he met along the way.
These days cars come with some pretty sophisticated add-ons: rearview cameras that show what’s behind you, driver alert systems that wake you if you’re dozing off. These optional features are all well and good, but none of them hold a candle to the Honda Motocompo, a tiny, folding scooter that was sold as a trunk-sized accessory for the Honda City and the Honda Today from 1981 to 1983.
