Suicide Jumper

Suicide Jumper

This is what happens when Improv Everywhere finds a four-foot tall ledge in Midtown Manhattan and decided to put a suicide jumper on it. A police officer, fireman, and the man’s wife and co-worker all arrive on the scene to talk him down. This is a newly remastered video from a project they did in 2005.

Hilarious.

Mercy Ships

Mercy Ships

If you watched 60 Minutes last week you saw a very moving segment about some very special people helping the very poor along the western coast of Africa. Their vessel is the Mercy Ship…sure would be nice if the local TV news would cover stories like this.

Measure & Improve Your Brain Power

I was asked to feature Cognifit as a ‘Cool Site of the Day’. Well, after being sucked into it for 37 minutes, I’d say it’s cool. As with Lumosity, I will add this to my daily regimen of cognitive boosting activites. – Mike

Musical Instruments from Garbage. WOW!

Musical Instruments from Garbage. WOW!

Thanks, Uncle Kenny, for sharing this one! Awesome story.

Landfill Harmonic (facebook link) is an upcoming feature-length documentary about this remarkable musical orchestra in Paraguay, where the musicians play instruments made from trash. To see an excellent 3-minute video of this project, click here (the above video is 11 minutes long so if you don’t have the time, DEFINITELY watch the 3-minute video).
