In 2013, Kurt Steiner Set the Stone Skipping World Record with an Amazing 88 Skips

 

 

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.”

Friday!
My education in a nutshell
Checkmate
Time is circular
Nice | 69 amirite?
They got their favorite pic of him framed and showed it to him
No way
This simple and effective way of sorting
Dam | Dam!
Removing a giant hornets nest
This is amazing
My parting gift
His truck was so high off the ground he didn’t even realize there was a car in front of him
When cotton candy meets water
When cat meets memory foam
When you’ve had enough of people double parking
When you account for everything but the fire sprinkler
Story time
Made me smile
Until next week

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 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.

Friday!
Me vs my to-do list
Me procrastinating instead
Worst diagram ever
Meanwhile in Alaska
It’s common courtesy really
Back to school with a back to school gif
Pretty cool, but feels over-engineered
Turbo boost!
Everybody felt that
Watching that cursor like a hawk
Really looking forward 2 it
Now that’s how you sell a laminator
The way this watch tells time
The zoom on this camera
Same same but different
My favourite window in the world
Story time
Made me smile
Until next week
