People doing awesome things

    People are awesome. And crazy. And I’m totally thrilled that we have people insane enough to try things like that because it’s entertaining to watch.

    Watching Todd Jarrett knock down 6″ steel plates at ~100 yards with a .45 was one of those amazing things, and I’m glad I was there to watch it happen.

    The “dude running on water”, however, is not real and really shouldn’t be in the video.

  4. yj Says:

    watched it twice.

    didn’t see me once.

  5. Sebastian The Blogless Says:

    That was the one I was going to ask about as well Guav. The parkour type guys get my vote as the most amazing athletes in the world.

    I’d have to see it in person and control for cheating, but I just found some video of some guys getting several steps in before they sank. Of course, they were on about “believing in it” and such crap, so I dunno.

    Ah, but will their knees still be functioning at our age?

    For every successful cliff dive, bike or board stunt, long ball into the net, and so on, there are innumerable belly flops, hard crashes, complete misses, and total embarrassments. It is a credit to the human spirit that so many are willing to do the work needed to have those moments of excellence.

    Today I varnished some cabinets. Not nearly as exciting, but at least I did not spill the can of varnish all over the floor.

    Tomorrow I think I will try to clean up my garage. Much more challenging, maybe this deserves to be on YouTube as well. Especially if the opossums have moved in again.

    Mr Evilwrench: The video you saw was a viral marketing campaign for Hi-Tec boots and their new water repellent coating.

    Makes my knees hurt just watching it. LOL

    Indeed we are.

    I liked the gliding down the stair walk-thingy.

    It’s also a good thing I didn’t have YouTube when I was a young’un – I might’ve hurt myself trying some of those things.

    The fellow with the bowling ball shot was good; but can he hit a ten pin with a hook like that? lol

    It is people who try things like that who keep me gainfully employed. For every one of those successful stunts, paramedics took hundreds of failed stuntmen to the emergency room.
