  • Thomas Morgenstern, Three-time Olympic Champion Ski Jumper, Injured In Horrific Crash [Video + Photos]

    TAUPLITZ, Austria (AP) — Three-time Olympic ski jump champion Thomas Morgenstern of Austria was hospitalized with skull injuries and a bruised lung on Friday after crashing during training for this weekend’s ski flying World Cup. “Thomas Morgenstern is conscious and well responsive,” the Austrian ski federation said in statement hours after the incident, adding the athlete’s condition would be monitored in the intensive care unit of a Salzburg hospital for the next 72 hours. Morgenstern’s injuries were not life-threatening, head of clinic Josef Obrist told the Austria Press Agency. “He has a serious injury and he has to be monitored fulltime,” said Obrist, adding that Morgenstern was responsive and gave clear answers. During his second training jump of the day, the 27-year-old Morgenstern lost his balance in the air, turned over to the left and landed on his back and head. He briefly lost consciousness but was able to speak shortly afterward. “Fortunately he was responsive, Thomas can move arms and legs. That’s very important,” team physician Herbert Leitner said. “He asked me what happened.” Morgenstern received first aid on the hill and was flown by helicopter to the hospital, head coach Alexander Pointner said. “We can only hope for more »

  • Don’t Be Alarmed If You See Dragons While Driving Through Borrego Springs, CA

    Borrego Springs, CA is a small town in the county in San Diego. It is located 3 hours outside of Los Angeles, 2 hours outside of San Diego and 1.5 hours outside of Palm Springs. Borrego Springs is home to many beautiful hikes and campgrounds but the real hidden gem is in the Galleta Meadows. There are 129 structures located throughout Borrego Springs, CA. Most notably is this dragon/snake that spans under a road that runs nearby. The land is owned by Dennis Avery and the structures were created by welder/artist Ricardo Breceda. All the structures are made of untreated steel, because of this the structures have began to rust and turn a burnt red color. The property spans numerous square kilometers and most of them are accessible by vehicle, although I recommend SUV/trucks for some of them! Getting stuck in the sand is no fun. It’s pretty sad that all these creations are untreated and will soon rust away into nothing, some of the other structures already have holes from the rust going straight through.

  • Looking Back At Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Performance 46 Years Later

    In May of 1968, Johnny Cash released his 27th album titled “At Folsom Prison.” The live album was recorded January 13, 1968 at California’s Folsom State Prison. Cash had been interested in the prison since the release of his second Sun records single, “Folsom Prison Blues” in 1955. The idea to record there finally came to fruition when personnel changes at Columbia records led to famed producer Bob Johnston being assigned to Johnny Cash. Backed by Carl Perkins, The Tennessee Three, and his wife June Carter, Cash played two shows for the inmates at Folsom. Both shows were the same day, resulting in a fatigued second performance that only produced two tracks on the final album. When Columbia released the album in the Spring, they put little effort into promotion, believing that Johnny Cash had little appeal outside of his country niche. However, with Bob Johnston attached, who had help make Bob Dylan a star, the album had a much broader audience and it immediately took off. By the end of the year, “At Folsom Prison” was certified gold and the aging country star was now a mainstream success with a whole new audience. The album was certified triple platinum more »

  • Teenage Freight Train Hitchhiker Takes Pictures Of 50K Mile Journey Across America [19 Photos]

    At 17 Mike Brodie hopped his first train close to his home in Pensacola, FL thinking he would visit a friend in Mobile, AL. Instead the train went in the opposite direction to Jacksonville, FL. Days later, Brodie rode the same train home, arriving back where he started. Nonetheless, it sparked something and Brodie began to wander across the U.S. by any means that were free – walking, hitchhiking and train hopping. Shortly after, Brodie found a Polaroid camera stuffed behind a carseat. With no training in photography and coke-bottle glasses, the instant camera was an opening for Brodie to document his experiences. As a way of staying in touch with his transient community, Brodie shared his pictures on various websites gaining the moniker The Polaroid Kidd. When the Polaroid film he used was discontinued, Brodie switched to 35mm film and a sturdy 1980s camera. Brodie spent years crisscrossing the U.S. amassing a collection, now appreciated as one of the most impressive archives of American travel photography. When asked about his approach to travel and photography Brodie has said, “sometimes I take a train the wrong way or…whatever happens a photo will come out of it, so it doesn’t really more »

  • Celebrate The iPhone’s 7th Birthday With These Early Concept Designs

    The iPhone was unveiled January 7, 2007, but for years before that, the Internet was abuzz with rumors and early design concepts. Some even doubted if Apple would ever actually release a phone. The New York Times’ very own technology columnist David Pope wrote in 2006 that Apple would come out with a cellphone “Probably never.” Looks like he was wrong, as were the folks who came up with these designs. They serve as a harsh reminder of the slide phone obsession of the early 2000s. What were we thinking?

  • 13 Baseball Legends You Wouldn’t Believe Received A Lower Hall Of Fame Voting Percentage Than Greg Maddux

    Greg Maddux was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame yesterday with 97.2 percent of the votes. Fun fact… Maddux faced 20,412 batters in his career and just 310 of them saw a 3-0 count.  This includes his intentional walks too. If we only look at unintentional 3-0 counts, it’s 133 in 20,284 total batters. That’s roughly one out of 150 hitters.  Insane. Only seven players in baseball history have received a higher voting percentage and many more legends received less. Let’s focus on the legends who received a lower voting percentage than Maddux. The list is quite amazing.
