This week's WOW

This is the first of a series of posts that contain links, embedded video, etc. I have come across over the course of the week that have at least some of what I would call the "WOW factor". In other words, on at least some level the information or video or picture makes me say wow. That usually means some new technology or somebody with amazing talent or all kinds of other things. It may be a cool animal video (or at least a video I think is cool) or a link to a news article or who knows what. The posts may not contain just videos etc. I have found over the course of the week because I plan to dig up some old favorites when the week is slow among other reasons. If nothing else they will contain something I think is cool and worth sharing.

The first entry needs to be one of my all time favorite videos I have found on the net. It is a video by Jon Rawlinson of the "Kuroshio Sea" - the second largest aquarium tank in the world. Absolutely beautiful.

Next is a video about the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. This car has set a new production land speed record of 267 mph (431km/h). Amazing.

This next video is six minutes of super slow motion. Very cool.

Ok, this one is just because it cracks me up.

Amazing performance by a Chinese acrobat duo.
