Nice setup they have there. A few years back I said it was just a matter of time before someone builds a gym for parkour and organises a competition :-)  Apparently, there is even a federation now http://www.wfpf.com/

John Koenig has made something special with the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. This one is my favorite but they're all excellent; I highly recommend taking a look.

"We sketch monsters on the map because we find their presence comforting. They guard the edges of the abyss and force us to look away so we can live comfortably in the known world.. at least for a little while."

Professor Lawrence Lessig still at it. If I can add a few more views to this video, I'd be happy. Check out his message and let's see what they'll do with the 5m they've already raised.  #maydaypac   #democracy   #lessig

" That's here. That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines. Every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician. Every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended on a sunbeam.

The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel, on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits that this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known...." 
---CARL SAGAN  "Pale Blue Dot"

Perhaps no better words have been spoken in the history of man, than these laid before you. The cosmic perspective is one that can change humanity for the better, if only we were to embrace it and move beyond our infancy, rather than clinging to it out of fear of the unknown...

Rest in peace Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov, creator of the iconic AK-47. He passed away today at the age of 94.

"Blame the Nazi Germans for making me become a gun designer... I always wanted to construct agriculture machinery." Spoken like a true Soviet.
