A great video from Barry Godin of his bikepacking adventures over a year.
Dag Aabye is a septuagenarian Ultra Marathon champion who lives completely off the grid.
Bit of a frustrating video. It's interesting but doesn't ask or answer much.
After his success in the best worst film ever made; "The Room" and the "The Disaster Artist," Tommy Wiseau has been publicly campaigning for one of the most iconic roles in the history of film: Batman's eternal nemesis, The Joker.
He seems better at it, the less he's trying to act.
Athlete or Genius? Graeme Obree shot to fame in the early 90s after twice breaking the world hour record on a bike he'd built using parts from an old washing machine.
The debate has never been settled on whether the success of this mercurial Scottish cyclist came from his cycling position or his athleticism. Until now.
An interesting and clever type of single light which can guide a ship depending on the angle at which they view the light.
Here'e the legendary pilot episode for Heat Vision and Jack. An apparent parody of Knight Rider starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Jack Black that never made it past this episode. Written by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, directed by Ben Stiller, this series was forgotten about by Fox.
I have no idea.......
Think he's a bmx'er by the way he uses his feet on corners.
Multiple award winning film, The Frozen Road, shows the month long trip of Ben Page across the Yukon in Canada.
I've put together a sounds track made up from some of the strangest/oddest recordings ever made.
The track includes:
-Mongolian throat singing, where 2 notes are produced at the same time
-Upsweep is the name of a recording made by the US's secretive underwater recording system known as SOSUS (SOund SUrveillence System). SOSUS is a network of unknown extent stretching throughout the oceans of the world and constantly recording sounds. Designed by the military for tracking submarines etc.
The recording is of an ongoing sound of unknown origin. Mostly emanating from the centre of the Pacific, it may be volcanic activity or tectonic. Although it changes in sync with the seasons.

I've been meaning to figure out a loop like this for a while.
It's mostly off-road, with a bit of quiet back roads and a couple of tiny sections of busy roads.
The first half (if going clockwise, starting in Edinburgh) is mostly tarmac cycle paths joining the towns surrounding Edinburgh.
Then it heads into and through the Pentlands, before making it's way back into town on sections of off-road paths (avoiding the canal).
Glad to see the pizza in there!
Here's a great Interactive Map Tracing Every Leap Made by Dr. Samuel Beckett in the series ‘Quantum Leap’. The program starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a physicist who leaps through spacetime during an experiment in time travel, by temporarily taking the place of other people to correct historical mistakes.
Special Request Media put this map together. It traces every leap Samuel makes through the life of the program, and links to more information about each episode.
The Town of Cobourg caught a pretty neat interaction between a Snowy Owl and a red fox at the Marina on January 4, 2018.
Here's a timelapse video of a guy building a log cabin in Canada without the use of any power tools (no power sources on site).
The logs were prepared offsite, then transported to the build site, before a month of finishing.
The roof planks were fire hardened using a technique called "shou sugi ban". It preserves and waterproofs the wood.
