    I sure hope this works out! Some of these scenes are impossible to believe, like the guy climbing vertical marble walls, or the fish which finds it's way back through the hole in the ice!

    @Frank Sanoica, I bet you could explain the physics behind why the guy is able to walk up the vertical walls. ;)

    @Nancy Hart
    That one, especially, threw me. Wondered at first if it was faked somehow. Now wonder if the "miss" was done on purpose, to add credibility. His fall was from pretty high up, yet he landed easily and lightly......still unconvinced.

    Each one of those scenes were worthy of conversation. Too bad they are all in one video. :) I really enjoyed it! The guys walking on the walls looks like the fad / sport where kids crawl walls and jump buildings. It needs the right shoes and lots of practice. It has a name, but I don't know what it is. You can find lots of those videos on YouTube playing around with words like Building Jumpers or something.
    Thanks for the video!

    They were all fascinating. Ten minutes well spent.

    I wonder about the bird one. What could have been the purpose for doing that?

    I think with some sticky soled shoes it could be done, if a person were in good enough shape.

    The windy one. I was caught up once like that. I worked in the downtown area and was pushed toward the street and ended up holding on to a telephone for dear life to stop from being blown into traffic. Frightful then but funny later imaging myself holding on while drivers were passing by.

    Having a bad day:
    Who are you gonna call when you’ve totaled an entire pallet of paying customers’ cars by accidentally dumping them into the river?

    That is how the porpoises follow naval ships. They eat the food scraps from the ship.
    I have no idea the advantage the birds get from the airplane though. It looks unsafe for the airplane and for them.
