Fun And Frivolity: Incredible Talent

Sorry this is a little delayed; I'm reinstalling the OS on my primary computer, and the backup laptop isn't quite as zippy. Nevertheless, we press on...!

This week's fun-ness is all about incredible talent. First up is a video of the winner of Ukraine's Got Talent for 2009. I've never heard of sand art before, but this! She's apparently depicting some major historical events from Ukraine's history, and it's amazing:

Next we have a different kind of talent, but one I hope I have down the road. It's an elderly couple who put on an impromptu show in the lobby area of the Mayo clinic:

If that doesn't warm your heart, you're just a jerk.

Finally, we have yet another kind of...uh...talent:

Female drivers take an average of 20 seconds longer to park their cars but are still less likely to end up in the middle of the bay, the research suggests.

As part of the test 65 people were asked to park an Audi A6 family saloon in a standard-sized parking space.

Their manoeuvres – including head-on, reverse and parallel parking – were timed and rated for accuracy, which was judged by how far they kept the vehicle from the edges of the bay.

While the researchers expected the women volunteers to be slower, they were surprised to find that the cautious approach did not lead to a tidier final result.

I know, but I couldn't resist! Besides, you know who you are... ;)

Have a great weekend!
