    This is a video of Jeremy 'Balloon Man' Telford recreating a corner of Bilbo Baggins' hobbit hole Bag End out of 2,600 balloons over the span of three days. He does a good job. Sure if I had been involved it would have been way more detailed, but I wasn't invited to particip... / Continue →

    Orbit Wheels are wheels that you put your feet through and then skate around sideways. They cost a not-too-bad $145 and mine just arrived. I'm going to take them for a spin and I'll give you the report when I'm back. UPDATE: They were surprisingly fun. Unfortunately they we... / Continue →
