36 foot dive into a 12 inch pool of water?

So as a world record holder myself (see here if you were not aware that I hold the world record for the most number of consecutive alternate eyebrow twitches in a minute), I can see the attraction of wanting hold a world record. This guy already had 11, so not sure why he felt the […]

Mukesh Ambani’s Yacht

I’ve written here before about Mukesh Ambani’s home in Mumbai, which is the world’s first USD 1 billion residence (and incidentally is 25 stories high). Well it seems that Ambani has done it again, with the creation of this simply stunning Yacht. The yacht will be moored in Mumbai and built by a french shipbuilder. […]

Las Palmas Bar Antics

Very much doing the rounds, but after I previously blogged about the destructive habits of various under 5 year olds, it seemed rude not to also include this little gem. The best thing is that this is actually a preview of a short film to be released soon by Johannes Nyholm, who has a facebook […]

Spell AC/DC…

How hard can it be to spell the name of your favourite band, especially when your favourite band happens to be, well, AC/DC? Maybe if you are from Greenacre, and the pressure is on because if you spell it correctly you get not only a CD, but you go in the draw for a rock-star […]

Jumping at Shadows

Well, less jumping at them, and more fighting them. This is pretty awesome, Samurai master Taichi Saotome’s New Year performance in which he fights shadows and projections. Awesome. To find out more about Taichi Saotome, check out his wikipedia page here. Apparently he is a famous actor known for playing both very good looking men and […]

Unusual Location for a Market

Perhaps not the most practical place for a food market, but these market stall owners in what is known in Bangkok as “the folding umbrella market” are probably fitter than the average stall holder, purely by virtue of the fact that they have to take it down every time a train goes by. Check out the video. […]

Squashed Car Art (Sydney)

Strolling along the Rocks in Sydney, and this is what we find. Slightly odd, and you can imagine that of course we would have jumped immediately to the aid of the driver of the car. And then we saw the sign. Phew! Very helpful. I wonder when we will get to a point where they have similar […]

Climbing VERY tall things

I actually have sweaty hands and a funny feeling tummy as I write this. These guys are crazy, I have no idea how you could climb up something this high.     First up is this guy who has climbed the top of the Burk Kalifa in Dubai, the highest building in the world. And […]

Is This Taking Your Relationship With a Doll Too Far?

To answer my own question, I can’t help but think that the answer is probably yes. Dave Hockey has a girlfriend who is a doll. He’s taken her everywhere, even on holiday, skydiving etc. Not sure what his wife thinks about this strange behaviour… And this is his doll Cynthia, who got to go Skydiving […]

Unbelievable Golf Shots

Golf is an amazing game, and the only sport I play with anything resembling regularity. I also play it really, really badly, and therefore have enormous respect for anyone who can play it well. So you can probably imagine  my admiration for these chaps, who have taken it to a whole new level. 1. Standard […]
