Earlier this month Yves Rossy became the first man in history to complete aerobatic loops with a jet-pack. I recommend doing an HD full-screen for maximum jet-pack goodness. (via devour)

Casteller: Human Pyramids in Spain

November 11, 2010

What the what! File this under how have I not heard or seen this before.

In the city of Tarragona, Spain, castellers gather every two years to see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. This uniquely Catalan tradition requires astonishing strength, finesse, and balance. Not to mention courage.

And then they send the five-year old kids in flippin’ helmets straight up to the top of these wobbly people towers. Wow. (via booooooom)

I’m always a sucker for hundreds of people pretending they’re an enormous train going through somebody’s living room. (via presurfer)

A Short Film Documenting 24 Hours in Mexico City

24 hours in Mexico City from Mexico City on Vimeo.

A tourism promo for Mexico City, directed by Luis Mandoki and Mariana Rodríguez. Having never been there I suspect (and some of the comments on Vimeo state as much) that this is a limited view of the “real” Mexico City and wonder if this is shot near a single neighborhood or city area. Regardless, what they’ve shot and edited is beautiful and enchanting.
