Foxes jump in a north-easterly direction

Foxes hunt rodents in the snow by listening for their movements and leaping high to pounce on their prey. Interestingly, they hunt most successfully when they jump in a north-easterly direction - 73% of the time. Jumping in the opposite direction has a 60% success rate. Pouncing in other directions was successful only 18% of the time. This was consistent regardless of time of day, season of year and weather conditions. [more inside]

The Challenge

The Sinner Team is a group of Russians who like bungee jumping and body modifications. They combine the two in interesting ways. THE CHALLENGE is a documentary of their experiences. If you are squeamish about unusual body piercings, you should probably not watch this.

No more monkeys jumping on the bed! (unless they're professionally trained and have years of experience)

Reuben Reynoso gets paid to jump on mattresses, day after day, mattress after mattress. The McRoskey Mattress Company in San Francisco has been making mattresses — and having people jump on them — for 112 years, since before the 1906 quake. [more inside]

Pop! ... Pop!

Boston Dynamics is getting close to mastering quadrupedal motion with Big Dog and Cheetah (previously). And are working on bipedal motion with Petman (previously), but how about a robot that is able to leap (up to the top of) tall buildings in a single bound? Sand Flea! [more inside]

More like Mighty Sciuridae Am I Right?

A squirrel enjoys playing with a ball, to the tune of "The Mighty Mouse Theme". Strangely satisfying.

Blooper reel pweez

Young Caucasian Jackie Chan wannabes jumping around like they can't afford skateboards. Their multiple compound fractures and lifelong disabilities and pain conditions (not pictured) are your two minutes of reasonable amusement. [СЛЙТ]

Got Medieval explains video games

How to explain video games to a medievalist, or at least, the sub-set of medievalists who are not also video game geeks (who I think are a larger group than Got Medieval does).

Now we will see what a perfect post looks like. And what it can do.

Here is the post. Here is the post. Here is the perfect post.
How does such a number function? What kind of thing is it?
We will look into that. We will investigate that.

arrrr you ready for a goofball

Never mind jumping the shark, has Tom Green lost it? As if Freddy Got Fingered wasn't sad enough, the former Mr. Drew Barrymore is picking blogfights with bloggers!? Isn't it embarrassing enough to be a quasi-celeb with a blog, let alone use it to rally your fans into send hate-mail and threats to a little-known blogger? Or is this just another childish attempt to embarrass his parents?

Who said white men can't jump?

Pogo Pr0n Coming soon is a pogo stick that can supposedly get you up to 4 foot in the air and was chosen as one of strangest new toys of 2004. Quite possibly replacing the scooter as the fad you can ride, or maybe we will end up designing cities around them.

The World's favourite spot to die?

Might as well jump. JUMP! An interesting article (nicked from linkfilter) about suicide and the Golden Gate Bridge. Only 26 people are known to have survived the 220 ft drop into water 350ft deep. I have been across the bridge once and was "amused" by the fact that there is a free counselling phone as you get halfway across. Reading this article and realising the numbers involved, it suddenly seems less funny... BTW, the jumper (who before he went a second time was one of the 26) protesting the Iraq War was discussed here.
