A few mind boggling links

Did you know that the colder the food you eat is, the harder your body has to work to exert energy to reach an equilibrium of temperature with your body? Since it takes 1 calorie to heat 1 gram of water 1 degree centigrade, you are basically lowering the calorie content of your food or drink of choice because your body has to use it's energy to bring that food back to body temperature. This is good news for all my ice cream and ice cold beer drinkers because now you know that if you want to be as healthy as possible make sure what ever you eat is as cold as possible. Read more about the Beer and Ice Cream diet here.

Wow this illusion really struck me because it is extremely impossible, but the magician and his helpers make it look relatively simple and real. Maybe you guys can figure out how they did it, because I know I can not.

Have you ever been robbed or maybe even pickpocket-ted on a subway or something? Yes I know it is not a pleasant experience, especially when your wallet gets stolen with $200 and then you have to worry about identity theft, as well as the trouble of cancelling all your credit cards. I'm not a big fan of thieves, but this guy is amazing at what he does, they call him the best pickpocket.

Now for a compilation of real life super humans who have surpassed the limits of what is humanly possible. A samurai with extreme speed and accuracy. The fastest gun slinger, who is capable of shooting two well placed shots in a blink of an eye. Also included are people with unheard of reaction times. For your viewing pleasures
