Vide-Ohs:800 Hundred Pound Elephant in the Room; Really!

Man often thinks that he is master of the universe, but sometimes nature and fate get in the way. These elephants will not be denied as they walk through a hotel lobby to arrive at one of their favorite dining spots regardless of what else is happening. I guess all occupants have learned to make way for elephants!

**NOTE** The start of the video is intentionally “jumpy,” but soon goes to regular, clear, colorful video that one would anticipate.

The Elephants that came to dinner | Mfuwe Lodge, Zambia

At a five-star lodge in Zambia, a bizarre phenomenon is stumping wildlife experts and delighting tourists. An elephant family, led by a matriarch named Wonky Tusk, is overtaking the lobby. Though elephants can be violent in the wild, here they climb the stairs of Mfuwe Lodge and grace past reception without bumping a chair. Why the paradox? Wildlife cameraman Nathan Pilcher is on a mission to find out. What he discovers may reveal elephants to be far more intelligent than we could’ve imagined.

Vide-Ohs: HS Dance Magic via the Wizard of OZ

To think that this performance was executed by high school students is astounding! This would be impressive if it were performed professionally on Broadway or at a Las Vegas venue. Everyone involved with this production should be saluted.

The choreography, dancing, scenery, etc. is wonderful and very well done. You will soon forget this was a hs gymnasium and I can guarantee that if you enjoy dancing and music, you will savor this masterpiece.

 

From the YouTube page notes:

Train Vide-Oh: Drone On – Flight of the Year?

I must say up front that I know nothing about flying a drone or taking pictures or movies with one. All I can say is that many of the blogs I follow have examples of drone usage and some of them are absolutely stunning.

I don’t want to address any of the legal issues of this phenomenon, but I do want to share a video with you that shows some of the skills users have developed in flying these amazing technological wonders.

I don’t know what all these words mean – Gapping, Perching or Powerlooping, but I am sure if you watch this video you will see examples of them. If the video is a bit long for you, you can get a good flavor of it and see most of the moves if you start at the 2:15 mark.

Whether you approve of drones, like, dislike, etc., you will probably have to admit that it takes much skill to do all of this with a flying machine.

Video: Gorillas Have Friendly Human Interaction

Primates are fascinating in part because they remind us of us. This video produced by the Aspinall Foundation shows how intelligent, loving, etc. gorillas can be. Pay special attention to the scene with the hat. Notice how the gorilla inferred the use of the hat and demonstrated that he knew its purpose.

This is part of information from the YouTube video page:

“In June 2017 our Chairman, Damian Aspinall and his wife, Victoria, made a special trip to our project in Gabon to oversee the transfer of a young gorilla group from the sanctuary where they met, to our Gorilla Protection Project in the Batéké Plateau National Park.

During their trip, Damian and Victoria met up with Djalta and Ima; two male gorillas from Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, who made the journey back to the wild in 2003.”

Video – Still the Best of Times

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

No doubt much of this sentiment vividly echoes today. We are living in turbulent times, but we are also living in the most advanced, wondrous time the world has ever known. The video below will offer a glimpse into this proposition and hopefully some JBRish readers will find inspiration and motivation to achieve more than they thought you could.

Undoubtedly some may find it a bit too proselytizing or idealistic and that’s OK too. If you don’t enjoy this style of video, or it just isn’t your thing, I hope that the quotes below, from the video, will provide food for thought.

NOTES

  • The video below has some NSFW language. Of course nowadays it may be difficult to judge what NSFW even means, but I would find some of the language offensive if my young child heard them or I had a middle schooler who wasn’t mature enough to hear them. Please consider this before you read further or watch the video.
  •  

  • The video is comprised of numerous clips from motion pictures, lectures, speeches, etc. and it is a bit lengthy, coming in at 38:24, but it goes fast IMHO.

Some quotes from the video, but not all the quotes:

     

  • “Excuses sound best to the people who are making hem up.” — Tyrese Gibson
  •  

  • “You can’t talk yourself out of something that you behaved yourself into!” — Stephen Covey
  •  

  • “It took me twelve years to get a four year degree but I got it and guess what, on a degree it don’t have dates. So if it took you four and it took me twelve it don’t show up nowhere, but I’m exactly where I want to be.” — Eric Thomas [some editing applied]
  •  

  • “I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” — Joseph Campbell
  •  

  • “The world shall perish not for lack of wonders, but for lack of wonder.” — J.B.S. Haldane

From Carat to Carrot to Carat

Mary Grams lost her engagement ring in 2004 and it remained missing for more than a dozen years. She looked and looked, but couldn’t find it. An apparent miracle happened one day while she was working in the garden and pulled a carrot. There was the ring, wrapped around a carrot. In essence, the carrot was wearing her engagement ring!

Happy Friendship Day – 2016

Today is Friendship Day in the United States and research has shown that having friends, and perhaps one or two very good friends, can increase one’s outlook as well as longevity. To help celebrate Friendship Day, I thought JBRish readers might enjoy this brief video of two women who have been friends for nearly a century.
