amazing house that is a home to cats


This house filled with catwalks and cat-friendly items is amazing!  I'd so love to have even just one catwalk.  Perhaps some of you who are handy can bring some of this to your own home. 


More cats.

dirt bike surfing


If you can look past the unpleasantness of this dirt bike messing with the peacefulness of Tahiti, this IS an amazing stunt performance.  Robbie "Maddo" Maddison accomplished it by modifing his bike with special tires and surfing fins and a daredevil demeanor. 

More surfing.

More extreme sports.

humans-as-castle competition


Every two years, participants gather in Tarragona, Spain, to see who can build the highest human castle.  It seems many fall but few get hurt.

motorized picnic table


This guy has a great idea here, but he could make it even better.  Why not add a picnic to the table?  And I'm sure he hasn't seen this bicycle beer bar in Amsterdam or he would add some beer!
