Cool Things in the News

Cool, but hot.

Calling this item “cool” seems counterintuitive because its heat is anything but cool.

Resiniferatoxin is so “hot” (with 16 billion unites on the Scoville scale) that scientists are researching its use in pain relief. That's 10,000 times as hot as the Carolina Reaper pepper.

 

Yes, you read that right.

Catching a Falling Human

#trigger warning

This post links to a video clip depicting someone allegedly attempting #suicide.. .It is not gruesome.

I have given this entry the rare “5-cubes cool” factor.

This photo illustration (left) cannot do justice to the video clip.

I am still researching its veracity, but I felt it was too moving not to post here.

Two firefighters look out a building window. One firefighter anchors the other firefighter's legs and lower body.

One firefighter leans out the window and catches a falling human, supposedly someone who was attempting suicide.

The strength, the willingness to put his own life at risk, and the sheer audacity of the successful attempt leave me in awe.

Fruitful Music

Can you play an instrument? The tuba, perhaps, or the drums?

Good for you! I have no musical talent at all. Some people have a little talent, and some people have a lot of talent, and then there's this guy. He plays music, all right, but his instruments are plain ol' ordinary fruit!

Here he is on YouTube making some unique tunes: https://youtu.be/RPf28jaiU90
