Now that he’s overtaken Roger Federer as #2 tennis player in the world and is unbeaten this year, has Novak Djokovic lost his mind? One can deduce such a thing after watching this latest stunt promoting Head tennis racquets that features the Serb (or a stunt double) playing a quick back-and-forth on the wings of an airplane.
I first saw this and only saw the part where his skis flew off, I thought he was seriously hurt or worse, then I searched and found the after landing scene and couldn't believe he was not hurt. Amazing!

The supermoon phenomenon was awaited with bated breath by avid moon watchers, astronomy enthusiasts and astrologers who had prophesied calamities on the occasion. The NASA had reassured people that the event, which is a coincidence of a full moon on lunar perigee, will not cause any catastrophes.
The celestial event has passed without causing anything untoward, but left in its trail spectacular visuals of the 'largest' moon in almost 20 years.
Thanks to a fluke of orbital mechanics that brings the moon closer to Earth than that it has been in more than 18 years, the biggest full moon of 2011 will occur on Saturday, leading some observers to dub it a "supermoon."
On Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the moon will arrive at its closest point to the Earth in 2011:Â a distance of 221,565 miles (356,575 kilometers) away. And only 50 minutes earlier, the moon will officially be full. [Photos: Our Changing Moon]
At its peak, the supermoon of March may appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than lesser full moons (when the moon is at its farthest from Earth), weather permitting. Yet to the casual observer, it may be hard to tell the difference.
The supermoon will not cause natural disasters, such as the Japan earthquake, a NASA scientist has stressed.
Spotting the supermoon
The moon has not been in a position to appear this large since March 1993.
In December 2008, there was a near-supermoon when the moon turned full four hours away from its perigee â the point in its orbit that is closest to Earth. But this month, the full moon and perigee are just under one hour apart, promising spectacular views, depending on local conditions. [Infographic: 'Supermoon' Full Moons Explained]
Although a full moon theoretically lasts just a moment, that moment is imperceptible to ordinary observation.
During the day or so before and after, most will speak of seeing the nearly full moon as "full," with the actual shaded area of the lunar surface being so narrow â and changing in apparent width so slowly â that it is hard for the naked eye to tell whether it's present, or which side it is.Â
Supermoon making waves
In addition, the near coincidence of Saturdayâs full moon with perigee will result in a dramatically large range of high and low ocean tides.Â
The highest tides will not, however, coincide with the perigee moon but will actually lag by up to a few days depending on the specific coastal location. For example, in Wilmington, N.C., the highest tide (5.3 feet) will be attained at 11:21 p.m. EDT on March 20.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, it's time to salute some of Ireland's finest imports: the hot Irishmen. These guys bring new meaning to the phrase "Kiss me, I'm Irish." Here is a list by BettyConfidential.com called Colin Farrell and 10 Sexy Irish Stars. The obvious, Colin Farrell, made the title of the list but was apparently too hot to actually be on it ...(I somehow missed the list again this year?)10. Liam Neeson
9. Jonathan Rhys Meyers
8. Pierce Brosnan
7. Patrick Dempsey
6. Tom Brady
5. Cillian Murphy (Inception, The Dark Knight)
4. Tim McGraw

My wife, after seeing the King's Speech, Â has been talking about Colin Firth this Colin Firth that . . . and I know he's one of Terri's favorites.Â So when I ran accross some pictures of him and after talking about the "Fictional Men We Wish Were Real" and he was at the top of the list, decided to post these.
We can never get enough cute-kid-with-pet videos. In this one, a little boy and his dog try to catch some Zs together. They're both sitting on the couch and can't seem to stay awake. The weird thing is they look surprisingly alike with their eyes closed.
Parents of picky eaters sometimes have to resort to trickery to get them to eat better. One "trick" that might encourage healthier appetites combines two techniques: enlisting kids' help with the cooking and mixing a sweet or surprise ingredient into the dish.
Modeling healthy eating habits and a positive attitude towards food should form the basis of your strategy for teaching your kids to eat well. Making your children eat what you eat and providing variety are also important.
But when your kids refuse, yet again, to eat what you offer and you start to fear they'll only eat chicken nuggets for the rest of their lives, you may be tempted to end the battle by smuggling healthy foods into dishes that they like, a la Jessica Seinfeld.
Perhaps you don't have to hide the healthy ingredients, though. Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan at the kitchn discovered one night that you can encourage your children to eat if you have them add the healthy ingredient into the dish (e.g., an apple in squash soup)âmaking it an intriguing game. It might not work every time, but getting your kids involved in the kitchen and making cooking fun is definitely worth a try (perhaps before you resort to hiding zucchini in brownies)
The original CNN video I posted has had over 6o million views, this one is every bit as dramatic.
- AT&T* today announced it has implemented international calling and texting support efforts for U.S. residential wireless and wireline consumers trying to connect with loved ones in Japan, following last week's tragic earthquake and tsunami.
Effective beginning last week, March 11, and continuing through March 31, AT&T wireless postpaid customers will not be charged for:
* International long distance usage from the United States and Puerto Rico to Japan
* Text messages to Japan, originated from a U.S. wireless number
In addition, and also effective March 11 through March 31, residential wireline customers can seek credits for up to 60 minutes of direct dial calling to Japan:
* Upon receiving their wireline bill, customers may call AT&T to receive adjusted calling for up to 60 minutes. In other words, no charges for up to 60 minutes of call time from the United States to Japan between March 11 and March 31.
For any of the above activity, customers will either see no charges reflected on their monthly statement, or they will see a full credit applied to their statement for activity between March 11 and March 31.
A massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake rocked Japan today (Friday), sending people into the streets and fearing tsunamis.
Those fears were realized in some regions, with water flooding coastal towns, sweeping away everything in its path, forcing some to take refuge on the roofs of buidlings.
There were also tsunami warnings issued for Russia, many Asia countries and Pacific islands, including Hawaii, as well as Chile, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Colombia.
According to early reports, the quake shook buildings and sent cars off bridges into the waters below. The epicenter was 230 miles from Tokyo, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It's believed to be the largest earthquake to ever hit Japan
Now, bodybuilding in general has gotten very extreme. The muscles that these competitors are able to create through training and medication are out of this world.
