Lightning is both amazing and awesome. Lightning should never should be underestimated. I thought this video was cool because I have been to the top of the John Hancock Building.
When I was a young child lightning scared me. I remember hiding underneath a table when the power went out, not knowing what was going on. Now I enjoy watching it! Funny how things change...

Technology always amazes me!
In Jakarta Indonesia this guy Irwan Rachmad spends one full month living with 5,000 scorpions! And people think I don't have a life! It happened in December of 1996, the good ole days. It took Irwan only two weeks to get his 5,000 scorpions together. During his stay he gets bitten up to an average of 29 times per day. Not my idea of a vacation.

This video almost hurts me to watch. I kept thinking his fingers were going to break! It turns out that this is a World Record too.

Sure he doesn't go all the way down but I still think that it's impressive.
When I first saw this ant hill I thought little of it. But then they pour cement into it for three days. Equaling out to 10 tons of cement, finally filling the gap! Here is an interesting fact though, just to make this ant colony the ants had to excavate nearly 40 tons of dirt!
I'm sure there must be better ways to find out what the ant colonies look like? Instead of pouring cement onto their homes immobilizing them in time forever. But in the name of Science people are willing to do anything for more knowledge.
I think it's amazing how he balances the balls on top of each other let alone his amazing shots. His massey shot is incredible! I thought I was good at pool but it's obvious that this guy could beat me or anyone I know, for sure.

Hitting the bank to flip in the coin is awesome! The last shot blows that away though by making the coin into the glass that is about 6 feet away! I'm impressed to say the least...
I'll never get used to the world we know very little about. Deep within the oceans is life that is unimaginable to humans. Their brilliant colors(bioluminescent) that glow in the dark seem unreal and the cool depths is like nothing we could even fathom. The pressure they endure everyday is tremendous. A human would be crushed long before it reached these depths yet they can surprisingly adapt to very little pressure and still survive.

The future of guns is here, this shotgun is an automatic killer. Made from seven different types of steel so there is very little maintenance. Made for military purposes this gun would tear the enemy apart. As soon as I saw this shotgun it reminded me of the "tommy gun" but obviously more leathal.

This next video made me weak in the knees just watching it. Dana Kunze does a staggering 172 foot dive. On his way down he does a triple back flip then into the water with his feet first. A very impressive dive and somehow he ties for the world record. That means someone else is just as crazy as he is!

Just when I think I've seen it all. There is a world record for clapping. Kent French otherwise known as "Toast" holds the world record for 721 claps in 1 minute. That's an average of about 12 claps per a second!

I would like to see if the clapper light mechanism could keep up with Toast?
Here are two videos of amazing ping pong for ya.

If you havn't seen the next video then your in for a real treat.
1 minute and 12 seconds of Bruce Lee kicking but on the ping pong table but instead of using a paddle he's playing with nunchucks! Simply Amazing to me!!!
I wonder how good he was with a paddle?
Weird piercing along with sword swallowing,human table top,bottle walking,human twisting and bending and holding a woman up on a chair with his teeth. Some of it is a bit unsettling but amazing all the same.

John Evans breaks his previous world record by balancing 96 milk crates instead of 93 milk crates on his head in Hyde Park, London. John Evans is a well known strongman receiving the milkman of the year award in 2001. 96 milk crates weighs 312 pounds! That is a lot of weight to have balancing on your head, especially for over ten seconds.

Geological phenomenon where rocks move in long tracks along a smooth valley floor without human or animal intervention.

I like the song that goes with it too.
This is really crazy! At first from the pictures I thought it was a baby seal but now I'm not so sure. They figure it may be some sort of a sloth mutation? There is some video of it about half way through.

According to reports in Panama, the teenagers spotted the creature crawling out of a cave while playing in the town of Cerro Azul north of Panama City.
Fearing for their safety as it moved towards them, the youths claim they attacked the beast with sticks before throwing its lifeless body into a pool of water.
The beast's hairless, rubbery body and revolting features have drawn comparisons with the Montauk Monster(above), the still-unidentified animal photographed on a New York beach last year.
A hooked claw is visible in one of the photos has been cited as evidence for the popular theory that the creature was a sloth that somehow lost its hair.
