OMG What a way to make a living – Engineer Climbs 1,768ft Comms Tower

Just watched this video and although not that bothered by heights seeing these two engineers climb a transmission tower which stands 1,768 feet made me feel a bit wobbly and I am sat at my desk.

The climber reaches the tower’s top most light beacon all streamed from his helmet-cam.

Take the Stairs Instead of the Escalator with the Piano Staircase..

I think the above viral piece is excellent and there a few more to be found over at the fun theory – (aka Volkswagen) –

It seems to make a very good point that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better.

Maltese Terrier “Scooter” The Smallest Dog in the World?

scooter-the-worlds-smallest-dog

This little Maltese Terrier seems to have stopped growing at 8cm just wondering if he is a challenger to The Guinness Book of World Record title holder – a long-haired chihuahua in America named Boo Boo – who stands at just over 10cm tall.

Scooter’s size is also evident in his weight, or lack of it. He weighs less than a block of butter at 400 grams – and that is while he is wearing clothes.

Owner Cheryl McKnight, from Gisborne on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, fashioned a regular purple sock into a jersey, which Scooter wears so he is easily seen around the house.

“It really is quite something. I can’t take him for a walk or put a leash on him.” more can be found here.
