    This is the statue honoring Jakub Wejher in Wejherowo, Poland. Jakub is most famous for stabbing a man with a broken light bulb for making a Polish joke. Just kidding, he was a military leader and founded the town in 1643. When it snows though, Jakub transforms into the spit... / Continue →

    This is a short video of some folks going off the Ski and Snowboard Bungee Ramp at the Tignes Ski Resort in France's Northern Alps. From what I could tell, the bungee cords actually slide on two cables parallel to the jump, so you continue bouncing further and further down the... / Continue →

    This is a very short dashcam video of a TIE Fighter crashed on a snowy highway in Germany. Unfortunately, it looks like both pilots survived the accident. Will one of them prove to be the stormtrooper that finally laser-blasts old Luke Skywalker in the face and puts an end to... / Continue →
