Dirt bike crashes can happen anytime, anywhere. You can see them coming and be powerless to stop it (like a train wreck about to happen) or they can be out of the blue (like a hand from middle earth grabbing your front wheel) and before you know it you're on the ground.
Watch how to make a pretty loud "firecracker" from two matchboxes, and some ducttape. Throw on the ground hard to make it explode. (Sorry for the crappy filming, used an ice-cream box as a camera stand.)
This is what happens when you blow bubbles when its -5 degress F outside.
They freeze on the ground, on the wand, and in the air. Its dark and the camera isn't very good but you can still see what's happening.

A sit up shot is where you do a sit up and shoot the ball, while still laying on the ground.

This is a beast of an exercise that'll mainly strengthen your chest and abs but also your shoulders (delts) and back (lats).
(1) Make sure to tilt your pelvis up to prevent your back from sagging. If your back sags your core isn't strong enough so try doing it with your knees on the ground.
(2) Having a slight bend in your rolling arm helps to do The Mighty Mouse Push-Up / Press-Up.
*NB* Please consult a doctor before starting any new exercise programme.

Very similar to The Mighty Mouse Push-Up but without the Push. This'll mainly work your abs but also your chest, shoulders (delts) and back (lats).

The Path to The Nomination
By Mark Penn, Chief Strategist Hillary Clinton
Date: Wednesday, February 13, 2008
This election will come down to delegates. Votes are still being counted and delegates apportioned, but Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are separated by approximately 40 delegates right now – that is, barely 1% of all the delegates to the Democratic convention.
Change Begins March 4th. Hillary leads in the three largest, delegate rich states remaining: Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania. These three states have 492 delegates – 64 percent of the remaining delegates Hillary Clinton needs to win the nomination. According to the latest polls, Hillary leads in Texas (IVR Jan 30-31), Pennsylvania (Franklin & Marshall Jan 8-14) and Ohio (Columbus Dispatch Jan 23-31). After March 4th, over 3000 delegates will be committed, and we project that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be virtually tied with 611 delegates still to be chosen in Pennsylvania and other remaining states. This does not even include Florida and Michigan (where Hillary won 178 delegates), whose votes we believe should be counted.
The reason Hillary is so strong in Ohio, Texas and Pennsylvania is that her message of delivering solutions resonates strongly with voters in those states. Hillary is the only candidate who can deliver the economic change voters want – the only candidate with a real plan and a record of fighting for health care, housing, job creation and protecting Social Security.
The demographics in these states also favor Hillary Clinton. Hillary won among white women by 6 points in Virginia and 18 points in Maryland, and white women make up a much bigger share of the electorate in these states (41% of 2004 Ohio Democratic primary voters, for instance, compared with only 33-35% of 2008 Maryland and Virginia Democratic primary voters). Hillary has also won large majorities among Latinos nationwide – 73% in New York, 67% in California, 68% in New Jersey, 62% in New Mexico, 59% in Florida and 55% in Arizona. Latinos made up 24% of Texas Democratic primary voters in 2004, and may be an even larger share in 2008.
Hillary Clinton has shown that she has the ability and organization to compete financially and on the ground. She raised 10 million dollars in just three days last week, and will be competitive with Barack Obama in fundraising and TV advertising from now through March 4th and beyond. She has a strong organization in each of these key states and endorsements from Governor Strickland, Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and former Senator John Glenn in Ohio. Hillary had a huge 12,000 person rally in El Paso last night to kick off her Texas campaign.
Again and again, this race has shown that it is voters and delegates who matter, not the pundits or perceived “momentum.” After Iowa, every poll gave Barack Obama a strong lead in New Hampshire, but he ended up losing the state. And after a defeat in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton went on to win by large margins in California, New York, Florida, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Arizona, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
As history shows, the Democratic nomination goes to the candidate who wins the most delegates – not the candidate who wins the most states. In 1992, Bill Clinton lost a string of primaries before clinching the nomination. He ceded Iowa, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maryland, Arizona, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Vermont and South Dakota. And in 1976, Jimmy Carter lost twenty-three states before winning the nomination, including: Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, West Virginia, South Carolina, Alabama, Illinois, Mississippi, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, and Utah.

— The United States Marines Corps on Tuesday condemned a video that purportedly shows a Marine viciously mistreating a puppy and promised an aggressive investigation into who is responsible.
Sources at the Marine Corps base in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, told FOX News that they were upset and outraged by the video, which was initially posted on YouTube but has since been taken down. They confirmed there is someone stationed there who served in Iraq with the same name uttered in the video.
"There is [a man by that name] here and back from Iraq," a source said. "Whether or not he is actually in the video, I can't confirm that — that's being investigated right now."
In the grainy, low-quality clip, the Marine appears to throw a puppy off a rocky cliff while joking with another Marine, who addresses him by a single name as he holds up the motionless black-and-white dog before hurling it into a gully.
"Oh, I tripped," the first Marine says as he throws the animal. A yelping sound is heard as the puppy flies through the air.
"That's mean. That was mean, Motari," a second man, pictured with him in the beginning of the video, can be heard saying.
A host of Internet blogs and sites have circulated what they speculate is the dog-tossing Marine's full name.
It was likely that the named man and others were being questioned in the case, sources told FOXNews.com. Those at the base in Hawaii were very upset by the video.
"We're all outraged," a source said. "We're probably more outraged than the general public. I hate that it happened."
Earlier Tuesday, the base's public affairs director issued a statement denouncing the vignette.
"The video is shocking and deplorable and is contrary to the high standards we expect of every Marine," said Major Chris Perrine. "This video came to our attention this morning, and we have initiated an investigation. We do not tolerate this type of behavior and will take appropriate action."
Soon after the uproar started Tuesday, YouTube removed the video from its site on the grounds that it violated content rules — though it was still accessible and available via other links online.
The authenticity of the clip, which has been viewed more than 145,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube in the last two days, has not been verified.
Perrine said it appears that the man in the video is a lance corporal based with a unit in the Hawaiian islands. His actions weren't characteristic of those of most men and women who serve, the spokesman said.
"The vast majority of Marines conduct their duties in an honorable manner that brings great credit upon the Marine Corps and the United States," said Perrine. "There have been numerous stories of Marines adopting pets and bringing them home from Iraq or helping to arrange life-saving medical care for Iraqi children.
"Those are the stories that exemplify what we stand for and how most Marines behave."
"It's questionable," sources told FOXNews.com. "But even if it was a fake, it's still outrageous."
Forum members and bloggers have been frantically trying to track down details of the soldier.
"Certainly there's a lot of outrage and a lot of people are upset about it. I think every Marine is upset about this video," Perrine said. "We will investigate and take appropriate action and make sure our Marine is safe as well.
"That is mistreatment of a puppy. That is a violation of anybody's standards, and the Marine Corps sets extremely high standards."
War is always hard on children but it’s got worse in the past ten years. Major armed conflicts have been replaced by low-level fighting, often between factions within the same country. These smaller wars blur the lines between combatants, criminals and terrorists and present new, more brutal threats to the unprotected. Ann M. Veneman, UNICEF Executive Director "In today’s conflicts children and other civilians are directly targeted and threats to children living in strife are increasing. They are not only caught in the crossfire, they are often the intended victims of violence, abuse and exploitation." The new UN report says progress has been made. There is more legal protection for children victimized by war, but much more needs to be done to support all children affected by conflict. Hilde Johnson, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director "The reality on the ground, is, and the Machel Strategic Report does note that it’s still incredibly difficult for very very many children. In 2006 more than 18 million children were affected by displacement as a consequence of conflict. More than 43 million children in 30 conflict-affected states are out of school." Many war crimes against children are committed with impunity and the UN report urges its member states adhere to international standards, and to emphasize the rights of children during and after war. Ishmael Beah, Former child soldier "Youth who have come out of this have a more first hand knowledge about what the violence does to them and what can be done to really help them, those that are affected. Those that continue to be affected. So I think it’s very important that at every stage of this children are sought after and listened to and their views taken into consideration." It’s very important at every stage that children's views are taken into consideration.
Battling blustery weather, a Lufthansa Airlines flight scraped its wing on the ground during a landing attempt in Hamburg, Germany, over the weekend.
The plane recovered and landed safely the second time around, the spokesman said.
Dramatic amateur video of the incident that appeared on the Internet showed the Airbus A320 teetering as it tried to land during the brutal winter storm on Saturday.
A group of girls are dancing at a rally when one slips off the stage, faceplants, and lands on the ground. None of the other dancers even pause to see if she is ok.
This kid tries a grind but ends up smashing his face on the ground. This is just hilarious!
