Gymkhana 8 in Dubai... of all places... A Muslim Paradox

If you liked the Ken Block video I posted before, you will enjoy this one (the last video in this post). This crew keeps trying to out-do itself. I don't know if they have succeeded..... personally, I think the video in San Francisco is better driving and better tricks. But more significantly, with... Sign in to see full entry.

RC Truck VS Dogs

This is more like 'when things just DON'T work', LOL! I just chased a stray cat away from my front yard with my RC truck. It was very uneventful..... the cat quickly and wisely ran away. These dogs, however, went after this guy's truck: This gives me idea. I might take my truck to a public park with... Sign in to see full entry.

Little Cars Doing Big Things

I recently got a 1/10 scale radio control truck just like one of these in the video. This is a commercial for Traxxas, but they really are doing some amazing things with these little cars. They are not really so little..... mine is almost 2 feet long. I don't think I will be trying to drive it... Sign in to see full entry.

Making It Work in Low-Gravity

The video above was blocked by YOUTUBE, but clever me, I found another one of the same thing that is NOT blocked, at least not yet. We will see how long this one lasts..... This music group, OK Go, is doing very interesting things. This is the second video of theirs that has made the cut here, in... Sign in to see full entry.

Kyle Swanson... Making It Work on 2 wheels

This is Kyle, the young man that Krisles told us about. I am very impressed with his talent, humility, and his willingness to fight injury and adversity to follow his dream. He has some sponsors now, according to his website. But when he started racing pro races on the national level, he drove... Sign in to see full entry.

Perfect Extreme Driving, on four wheels, anyway...

I am taking a chance here, that my friends on Blogit will tolerate my love of extreme motorsports, and not condemn me for it, as some of my family do. All the women in my life (wife, mother, etc.) tell me that I should stop doing such things, as a 62-year-old man. I am in my 60's, but still acting... Sign in to see full entry.

Intense Beauty...Bellagio Fountains...For Free!

I don't know why I did not think of this earlier, for this blog..... it took a visit to Wiley John's blog to get the proper memory neurons to fire. This blog is about things that "work", people doing and building things that are exceptional, beautiful, and awe-inspiring, and the Fountains of... Sign in to see full entry.

Mountain Bike Classic

This video was done in 2010, it has been a favorite of mine for years, so I guess that makes it a 'classic', plus it has over 10 million views..... I love the energy, the expertise, the mood, the music "c'mon lovers, let's do this right"..... I wonder what these Canadian kids are doing today: Sign in to see full entry.

Badminton... the ultimate ironic sport

I love the game of badminton, though I rarely get to play it. It is a game of irony. No matter how hard you hit the gamecock, it slows down very rapidly, because it is very light and feathery. So the harder you hit it, the quicker it slows down, and the more difficult it is for the opponent to track... Sign in to see full entry.

Best Wingsuit Flight

You can fly like Superman..... as long as you are flying downhill, LOL. I guess it is more like a flying squirrel. Seriously, these brave flyers are capturing and living the dream of humanity, to fly like birds in the sky. I have been watching this sport for a few years, and this is the most...
