It’s sad and shocking! A video of a man (maybe retarded) walking on top of a train and then reach up and touching the electrical lines on top. He gets charred to death within a second!
Amazing…. I am going to print these out and clip it to my cube walls. Next time, someone tells me something is impossible… I am going to just lean back and point them to these pics!!!
This is a case of photographer photographs another photographer. The following photographs were taken by photographer Hans van de Vorst at the Grand Canyon, Arizona. The descriptions are his own. The identity of the photographer IN the photos is unknown.
I was simply stunned seeing this guy standing on this solitary rock in the Grand Canyon. The canyon’s depth is 900 meters here. The rock on the right is next to the canyon and safe.
Watching this guy on his thong sandals, with a camera and a tripod I asked myself 3 questions:
- How did he climb that rock?
- Why not taking that sunset picture on that rock to the right, which is perfectly safe?
- How will he get back?
This is the point of no return.
After the sun set behind the canyon’s horizon he packed his things (having only one hand available) and prepared himself for the jump. This took about 2 minutes.
At that point he had the full attention of the crowd. After that, he jumped on his thong sandals… The canyon’s depth is 900 meters here.. Now you can see that the adjacent rock is higher so he tried to land lower, which is quite steep and tried to use his one hand to grab the rock.
We’ve come to the end of this little story. Look carefully at the photographer. He has a camera, a tripod and also a plastic bag, all on his shoulder or in his left hand.
Only his right hand is available to grab the rock and the weight of his stuff is a problem. He lands low on this flip flops both his right hand and right foot slips away…
At that moment I take this shot. He pushes his body against the rock. He waits for a few seconds, throws his stuff on the rock, climbs and walks away.
This is what happens when you have too much time in your hands and NOTHING to do. You go crazy!
Man breaks record by sitting in 39,250 seats
PASADENA, Calif. – Jim Purol took a seat at the Rose Bowl, and then another, and then another, until he broke a world record. The Anaheim man set a Guiness World Record on Wednesday for “Most Seats Sat in 48 Hours” by sitting in 39,250 seats. He began the task Monday morning, and he’s still going, hoping to rest his tush in each of the stadium’s 92,542 seats by sometime this week.
The 56-year-old, who already holds several other world records, says he has dreamed of tackling the Rose Bowl seats for 20 years — ever since he sat in all 107,501 chairs at the University of Michigan’s football stadium. The feat has taken a toll on his body and his cleanliness, as soot on the seats rubbed off on his clothes. He says he loves the Rose Bowl but calls the place “filthy.”

Excessive gaming, emailing and text messaging should be added to psychiatrys official guidebook of mental disorders, according to an article in this months American Journal of Psychiatry.
Dr Jerald J Block, the articles author, outlined four distinct symptoms displayed by sufferers. Withdrawal and an associated sense of anger or depression when users cannot reach a computer, the constant need for better equipment and the feeling of social isolation and fatigue are all signs of technology-related mental disorders.
“Attempts to measure the phenomenon are clouded by shame, denial and minimisation,” said Dr Block. The conditions are difficult to treat because internet addiction is ” resistant to treatment, entails significant risks and has high relapse rates”.
Dr Block said that the problem is most acute in South Korea where internet addiction is one of the countrys “most serious public health issues”.
“Using data from 2006, the South Korean government estimates that approximately 210,000 South Korean children are afflicted and require treatment, ” said Dr Block. South Korea set up a network of 140 tough love rehabilitation centres in November 2006 in a bid to curb the growth of internet addiction among the countrys teenaged population.
