On September 6th, 2013, Kurt Steiner set the Guinness World Record for “most consecutive skips of a stone” with an astonishing 88 skips. The cast was achieved at Red Bridge, near Kane, Pennsylvania.
Kurt, being the previous record holder for this category from 2002-2007, had been practicing for the past few years to improve his skills. According to Guinness, Kurt has collected more than 10,000 “quality rocks” and has sorted each according to its type, to prepare for the best possible throw. He looks for stones “that weigh between 3 – 8 ounces… that are very smooth (they don’t have to be perfectly round), flat bottoms and are between 1/4 – 5/16th of an inch thick.”

Brushy One String is a fantastic musician from Jamaica. He’s part Delta Blues with a bit of old-school soul, and he beats a pulse and rhythm on the guitar body that’s infectious and simple. That’s the beauty of Brushy One String: It’s all essence, and everything’s essential.
Well known car reviewer, Doug DeMuro, was recently loaned the eye-catching Lo Res Car from the Petersen Museum so he could take it for a test drive.
You can’t help but stare at this fascinating art car. While it’s not much on performance or convenience or any other reasonable car metric, it’s truly unforgettable. Can you imagine this thing driving past you on the road?
I will always cry when seeing this video. The most touching WWE moment ever.
Should you ever find yourself near Bay Port, Michigan for the night and you don’t fancy a hotel, maybe this house-in-a-barn will fit the bill.
Currently listed on Airbnb by owners Brian and Lisa, they add:
Built in 1956, Grandpa George’s dairy barn has been the source of countless memories for our family. Over the past several years, we’ve created a space, a literal house-in-a-barn, that displays many of Grandpa’s old farm relics, while adding modern touches that appeal to guests of all ages. The result is a wonderfully unique lodging experience. And located in beautiful Huron County, you’re just moments away from the best beaches, boating, fishing, and farms in the entire state of Michigan!
The space consists of a cafe/kitchenette area with a bar height farm table, a great room finished in weathered barn wood and old steel, a private bedroom with a unique ceiling covered in old doors, an adjoining bathroom featuring a shower made from a sheep watering tub, and a loft area.
The owners say the house-in-a-barn has been properly permitted and assessed by the local building authorities. For more info you can check out the listing on Airbnb.
In this fascinating clip from BBCs Blue Planet II, this specialist hunter knows just how dangerous their prey can be. To solve this problem, they hypnotize crabs by changing the colour of their skin. They also use that same amazing ability to avoid predators like sharks.
This cockatoo is my spirit animal.
