Wow. Thanks for the experience jojo.

Couldn't make it through the video. My vertigo started to kick in. Thanks for the link dump though. I've been wanting to post this. 1971 World Table Hockey Championship [via Stan Fischler's blog].

jojo's video is so unreal. It looks like a Half Life level.

If my memory is correct, when my dad was young, this is how he used to get to school. At least that's what he always said.

And goddam, my dad said he used to own that video game. He said it was called NHL 1.971K

There's only one Rene Higuita? No, there's more. Fortunately there's only one MC Hammer.

jojo, I think that would have made a fine FPP. Scared the crap out of me just watching it. It would take several large men with firearms to get my acraphobic rear end up that trail.

I don't know. I think we could probably use another MC Hammer. Y'know, as a species.

Since it's a link dump and all. Crazy.

Since it's a link dump and all. Crazy. I'm sure the person who got hit in the head with that dude's Red Bull can was loving it.

Got to feel for the guy who has to put the chute on. What do you think was going through his mind? "Just what I've always dreamed of. Riding Travis Pastrana bareback. For a stupid video. Life is good. I hope his chute doesn't open."

I'm sure the person who got hit in the head with that dude's Red Bull can was loving it. Video not released yet: The two other Red Bull cans with chutes on that strapped the "daredevil" can into a tandem harness.

That video of the climb is amazing. Absolutely stunning scenery, and as someone before said, it looks like a real-life video game level. The sights almost would make it worth the frights, and I too am scared of heights. Insane thing #1: Doing that climb. Insane thing #2: Doing that climb and taking a video of yourself doing it at the same time.

All the 147s at the Crucible on one page. Can you international types use iPlayer, or is it a UK only thing?

posted by JJ at 06:47 AM on May 02

JJ, it says, Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

You must be a Crip. We're Bloods here. (one trick that used to work in SE Asia but might not anymore after I made the epic mistake of telling the executive producer of the BBC's Masters coverage about it, is to change your profile to "UK user" - most of the pages have an option).

posted by JJ at 09:46 AM on May 02

I found some of the same clips on YouTube and that worked fine. I even learned what a 147 is.

I did a post on them once. Perfection. I'm watching the snooker at the moment. O'Sullivan is handing Hendry his ass. It's fun to watch. 14-8 at the mid-session interval of the second session. Ronnie needs three of the remaining four frames tonight to get the day off tomorrow to prepare for the final which starts on Sunday.

@Jojo: Thanks for helping with my diet, since I puked up lunch after watching that video! Man, I am so scared of heights that watching this gave me palpitations!

posted by billsaysthis at 03:16 PM on May 02

I am not a big fan of them myself Bill. The funny part is the guy slips in the beginning, on the easiest part of the whole thing. I'd have turned around right there!

I think this might have been available for a bit, but the NBA has a Google Earth visualization (.kml file) that shows a whole bunch of things NBA hoops-related. (via Google Earth Blog)

I am guessing that this didn't help Joba's attitude towards Cleveland much. Funny little clip though after the great bug game of last year's playoffs.

jojo, here's a little more info about the trail in the video you linked to.
