Jean Claude Van Damme's gift for doing the splits is well documented, whether in the movie Bloodsport, or in a recent commercial for Volvo. 

 

A lot of people do the splits, far fewer do it while suspended between two moving semi trucks. 

 

And then there's the TV star who tries to top it while standing on two rolling carts. Let's just say he fails.

Doesn't everyone love the classic "long pass over the middle, ball stripped, defense recovers, receiver strips ball from fumble returner, then returns the second fumble for a touchdown" play?

 

Apparently Sacred Heart does.

Remember that time the Ohio State marching band was featured in this space for its video game halftime show? It's back. 

 

On Saturday, the band did a show featuring movie music, and animated it. Superman flies out of a phone booth to prevent a building collapse. The Lord of the Rings eye. Harry Potter flies on a broom. Dinosaur from Jurassic Park eats some guy.

The point of view video from the Red Bull Stratos jump was released recently, and it's pretty awesome. 

 

I'll let it impress you. It's hard for me to compete.

This isn't your father's Wildcat, let me tell you. This crazy mechanical dog thing is the latest technology in four-legged robotics. 

 

The thing sounds like it's powered by a chain saw motor. I'm not sure what I would do if I saw one running towards me on the street. Run? Or tip it over?

You won't be the first to see it, but a video of a firefighter saving a kitten's life with an oxygen mask has reached more than 12 million views in four days.

 

It's pretty cool. Seems from the comments I'm the only person that didn't cry, but, ok... now I'm crying. There it went.

If one of your life's ambitions is to ride the skies on the back of an eagle, definitely watch this video. 

 

Otherwise, how would you know what to expect when it happens for real?

There have been nearly 2.25 million views of a video encouraging people to donate $1.6 trillion to fund World War 3. Apparently because Obama says so. 

 

Really, it's because Second City says so.
