Interestingly, Dr. Suess' latest book "What Pet Should I Get?" was only just discovered and is set to be released on July 28, 2015.
59 years after this tv show Theodor Geisel is still supplying the "juvenile reading public" with that miracle drug called laughter! O:)

+4 8. nowhereman commented 7 years ago on video Freerunning in Bangkok's Ghost Tower

#1 isitmeor, i can understand your trepidation, there is most definitely an element of danger in free-running, but it doesn't seem as though these two young men are acting with reckless abandon. after a little research into the two featured, it is clear that they have devoted much of there lives to this sport, honing their own abilities as well as developing the reputation of free-running amongst the athletic community.
they, at least in part, run a free-running magazine and apparel company, and have developed quite a following. they didn't get to where they are now without a great deal of hard work, and likely a few broken bones, and i for one respect them for it. your mileage may vary.
as far as i can see, the major difference between these two gentlemen and an olympic athlete is a socially respected platform. i would put forward that an elite downhill skier or mountain climber operates with a similar level of risk, though i am willing to concede that an established sport likely comes with hard learned safety protocols. free-running now seems to be developing in much the same way as skateboarding did in the eighties and nineties, and i look forward to see where it is headed.
i must disagree with you when you say not to encourage these activities. i would say the opposite, encourage kids to get evolved, help to develop the infrastructure, so newcomers can train themselves and avoid the painful or fatal accidents that you, perhaps sarcastically, requested.
what they are doing is dangerous, but it is also impressive, and i would rather be inspired than disheartened.
respectfully, nowhereman. :x

+4 14. nowhereman commented 8 years ago on video Stephen Fry tries to explain the feeling of manic depression

I am often struck by the notion that in my lifetime there lives what may be the largest animal to have ever lived and that will ever live, the blue whale, and i have yet to see it. Truly, in Stephen Fry there too is a colossus of this world, a man whose wake can and will be felt throughout history; i would thoroughly like the chance to meet him.

+5 18. nowhereman commented 8 years ago on video Narcisse Snake Dens

i am inclined to argue that the fear and misinformation surrounding "snakes and other animals" is of a far greater detriment then the attitude of exploration, investigation, and understanding these children are fostering. please understand #1, i appreciate your sentiment, but the context in which the Manitoba wildlife conservation approaches these animals should be considered. http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/wildlife/spmon/narsnakes/

+8 35. nowhereman commented 10 years ago on video Speech recognition like you've never seen before.

#10 Chinese isn't a language it is a language family. mandarin, Wu, and Cantonese are languages. one speaks mandarin not Chinese. using the word "Chinese" misrepresents the variety of languages and dialects within china and the surrounding area. two people who speak languages within the Chinese language family may find it very difficult to communicate. similarly, English and German languages are considered part of the Indo-European language family yet possess significant distinctions.

... i was trying to be amusing.
