The Jetlev is a new water-propelled jetpack which allows you to beat all the traffic on your daily commute to work. Further, it is a long more fun than water-skiing on the weekends.
Just imagine flying over those jet skiers in summer on the beach. And when you are first starting out and go the wrong way, you will land in water at least - much softer than a hill, tree or mountain!
Checkout the video below - it is quite a lot of fun.
I'd hate to be a duck or swan underneath that jet stream though!
The Holstee Manifesto is a fantastic way to make the most of our most precious gift - life. The video below is very inspiring:

They reveal sights which we normally associate with monsters in films.
They are beautiful high-quality closeups and are magestic because of their clarity and their colours!

The earthquake that hit off the coast of Sendai in Japan on the 11th March 2011 lasted several minutes and was a 8.9 magnitude one - the largest ever recorded in Japan.
The earthquake triggered tsunami warnings and evacuations in many countries in the Pacific region. These tsunami waves were recorded up to 10 metres high and travelled up to 10km inland in some places.
Residents within a 20km radius of the Fakushima Nuclear Power Plant have been evacuated due to possible radiation leakage.
Here are some images and Youtube videos that capture the disaster:
These videos capture some amazing and terrible moments:
Enjoy the video a passenger took from their plane as the shuttle was lifting off into space... spectacular!
The following question was once posed to the Dalai Lama: “What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”
His answer was very insightful, as follows:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present,
And as a result he doesn’t live in the present or the future.
