Johnny Jetpack
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a 7-foot-6-inch puppet attached to a giant water-rocket backpack! It's Johnny Jetpack! You heard right. Someone felt compelled to launch this puppet to 70-90 feet and then let it plummet to its death, complete with flailing limbs, screams and an exploding head.

Dirty Sole Society
Shoes can be so confining. Walk in the grass with others who feel that your toes should be free and easy as you walk. On the Dirty Sole Society site you'll find articles about the benefits of walking around without socks, and whether or not it's legal to drive barefoot.
