Videos from the Beach

Obviously I haven’t been posting recently, I’ve been off on a beach excursion and I have had extremely limited internet connection the whole time. I thought I’d share the videos I have first. 🙂

Vodpod videos no longer available.

School procrastination led me to creating CAFAvids.com

About 4 months ago I ran across Kevin Nalts website looking for Revver information, and I found his own rendition of an online video site at CubeBreak.com. Cube break was made by Nalts for those at work to get away from what they’re actually supposed to be doing by providing humorous videos to watch. After looking around I then found his video on how to make your own online video site. I said to myself, “Eh, that’s easy.. I could do that in 2 seconds”. I tried to just throw some videos on a page and be done with it, but I couldn’t persuade myself to publish something that looked like videos on a blank page. It hurt my feelings not to have any kind of structure. After that I still thought about it, but moved on to other things…….

Until last night, or about 10 hours ago, I found myself procrastinating from doing school. Instead of messing around with pictures, going to the pool, watching a movie or TV I was making my own online video site powered by Revver. I decided to choose CAFA = Cute and Funny Animal videos due to my passion and love for them. Who can resist a little puppy wrestling with her brother, or a sleepy kitten? I know I can’t.

The website it… drum roll please… CAFAvids.com

Well I hope you enjoy! I’m off to get a little rest after my all night 10 hour excursion into video site land. 🙂

Looking Glass Falls

Transylvania County has been named the “Land of Waterfalls” in North Carolina. Last weekend I was able to spend the day at the Pisgah National Forest and take pictures of the “Looking Glass Falls”. I also took some video of the fall which you can find here.

Crazy Animals

I recently posted about the birds building a nest in my den, crazy huh? I didn’t think it could get anymore entertaining around here until yesterday. I was looking outside in my backyard and I caught another glimpse of a confused animal. This time it was a squirrel who kept attempting on jumping on a branch that could not support his weight. Take a look at it by clicking on the thumbnail below.

 

While writing this I thought of a unique story about an encounter that my grandfather had with a flying squirrel. I don’t remember exactly how the flying squirrel was found by him but the basic story is that he found this baby squirrel that he been living in his attic. It was old enough that if it was let back into the wild it would have trouble living, since it knew nothing about self-defense. So instead of him being put through those troubles my grandfather decided to keep him in the house and keep him as a pet. He acquired the name Radar. I remember eating dinner there and him flying from atop the curtains over the table and onto a bench that was on the other side of the room. After my grandfather illness worsened and my parents and I moved into his house my mother figured it probably wouldn’t be the best to have him in the house. Just to be safe since his natural instincts could kick in and she didn’t want me to have to get a rabbis shot. Radar was the adopted by my grandfathers girlfriends sister and carried out a long life with her.

The Diet Coke and Mentos Videos

Wow, I saw these videos a while back. It was very interesting what a bottle of diet coke and mentos could do together. Then due to EepyBird.com it became a phenomenon. I thought I’d list a couple of the videos that I found very interesting for your viewing pleasure! (Click on the thumbnail to see the video)

– The Original, consisting of 101 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and 500 Mentos mints.

– The Domino Effect, consisting of 251 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and 1,506 Mentos mints.

– Experiment #144: Super-Soaking Fountain, which consits of 180 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke and over 1,000 Mentos mints.

And how about the ones that didn’t work?
