The Metabolically Challenged

We Will Live Again from Brooklyn Underground Films on Vimeo.

Considering the whole 'Rising from the Dead' vibe this is probably an incredibly inappropriate video for Easter weekend, but man... is this odd or what?

Close encounter with a meteor

Anders Helstrup, a Norwegian skydiver, had a couple of GoPro cameras mounted on his helmet when he did a jump. When he reviewed his video (seen above) he saw something zoom past him as he fell. Slowed down, and studied by a geologist, it appears he caught a meteor whizzing past him at 300ph.

You can read about it in the Universe Today article Norwegian Skydiver Almost Gets Hit by Falling Meteor — and Captures it on Film (via Slashdot).

I wonder how many meteors have almost bonked me and I just haven't been playing close enough attention?
