Michael Grab – Stone Balance Demonstration

Michael Grab balances stones. Perhaps you have seen a stack of stones in the woods, at the beach or on a mountain? These are nothing like that, or rather, they are just like that, but look like they are a CGI trick. They are not. Just to prove that they are not computer generated, but are actually just one man stacking some rocks, Grab has released a video demonstration of him balancing some rocks. In his words “the process boils down to contemplative stone arrangement; involving patience, adaptation, slow-breathing, steady hands, and a plethora of other practiced skills.” This is nature as spiritual practice as far as I am concerned, and both the process and the results are beautiful and inspiring.

Kevin Hays is a Rubik’s Cube God

I’m not sure about children today, but when I was in school everyone either had a Rubik’s cube or had a friend who had one. Occasionally, someone was able to solve it. It was never fast. It often looked like luck. Kevin Hays is a master ‘speedsolver’. Not only does he appear to know exactly what moves to make, he executes them with super-human quickness. You have to see this video to believe it. Watch as he solves 6 Rubik’s cube’s, each one with more squares than the next.

Simon Ata – 2014 Strength Workout

I love functional strength. Watching someone lift a 1,000 pounds will always be shocking, but most of those guys look like they couldn’t touch their toes. Then you have the gymnasts and the breakdancers and the “movement” crowd. These guys are pushing the boundaries of human physicality in incredibly holistic ways. They are not just perfecting one movement or one type of lift, they are perfecting their bodies ability to do anything and everything. Breakdancer Simon Ata from Melbourne Australia is an elegant beast. I’d be thrilled to be able to pull off one of the body weight exercise he does in this video.

Sebastian Linda – The Journey of the Beasts

There are so many amazing men in this video I almost don’t know who to feature in this post. Clearly all the skateboarders involved deserve recognition, but I think what really drew me in to this clip was the camera work, the editing and just the overall vibe and energy of it. Sebastian-Linda.de, the remarkable filmmaker, gets the credit for this.

TRAMWAY MEDIA – MEN vs OFFICE

I suppose when you have long winters and everything ends up frozen you get creative. I love what these guys did to create a natural ice raft to flow down the partially frozen river.

These guys make the most of seemingly harsh environment! Wednesdays are for AMAZING MEN Find More Amazing Men by clicking HERE

Joe Ades Perfect Potato Peeler Pitch

Joe Ades was often seen on the streets of New York City sitting on a box with a crowd of people around him demonstrating and selling potato peelers for $5. By most estimates he became a millionaire this way. Watch the video and you will see how. His demonstration alone is worth the cost of the peeler. His charisma and salesmanship are a thing of beauty. He even earned himself a wikipedia page. Joe left this world in 2009. RIP Joe Ades.
