This week's WOW

I am amazed this guy lived. Car crash caught on a dash cam.



Excellent time lapse and slow motion photography.



Man invents machine to turn plastic back into oil. WOW.



The Seabreacher. I want one.



Another good video of the Seabreacher:

Future of personal aircraft? I'll take one of these too.



Speaking of things I'd like to own, the electric Mercedes sports car. 526 horsepower from an electric is almost unbelievable. I wonder what what kind of range it has.



"protein killer could treat all cancers, and possibly all illnesses"?? That could change things more than a little.

The Mexican Fisherman

Ever hear the story of the Mexican fisherman? You see there is this business man and a Mexican fisherman... Wait, that sounds like I am telling a bad joke. It is a little humorous but I'm not talking about a joke. Rather this story is about defining success. See for yourself (well worth reading):

Disclaimer: I have only briefly looked over the rest of that site and, as is the case with nearly all external links on nearly all sites with external links, I have no control over external content and people should use caution. Everything I have seen makes me think there is nothing to worry about and they look like a very positive organization but I can certainly never guarantee that. I am not affiliated with them in any way. I just like the Mexican fisherman story and think it is worth sharing.

This week's WOW

I have a fairly long list of items this week partly because I was out of town backpacking last week so this is stuff I have found over two weeks. First is a video I took that I think turned out pretty well. I have always liked a good colorful evening sky. This is just over 15 minutes of a recent evening I condensed down to 36 seconds.



Next is a top ten Jackie Chan stunts video. He is in a class by himself.



Speaking of Jackie Chan, the guy even trains fish!

Next is one talented 10 year old. Almost hard to believe that voice is the voice of a 10 year old. Very impressive.



Next is hopefully the future or our highways.
