Trike morphs into bike at high speed

 At rest, the thing looks like a tricycle with crooked wheels. But as the rider gains speed, the back wheels fold in to become more like one wheel. As the rider brakes, the 16-inch rear wheels open back up to prevent tipping over.

Exploding frog mystery solved

ToadIt appears that scavenging birds might be behind the mysterious exploding toad saga recently in Berlin.

"The crows are clever," said Frank Mutschmann, a Berlin veterinarian who collected and tested specimens at the Hamburg pond. "They learn quickly from watching other crows how to get the livers."  
Based on the wounds, Mutschmann said, it appears that a bird pecks into the toad with its beak between the amphibian's chest and abdominal cavity, and the toad puffs itself up as a natural defense mechanism.   But, because the liver is missing and there's a hole in the toad's body, the blood vessels and lungs burst and the other organs ooze out, he said.

Hrabosky's Ballpark Saloon has a two-way mirror

Hraboskys (Medium) (2)This shot is from the men’s room.  The gentlemen in the foreground are doing their business using three urinals that are on the wall below a two-way mirror.  On the other side of the mirror/window is a hallway leading back to the ladies restroom.  The ladies are always checking themselves out in the mirror – fixing their hair, putting on lipstick, picking their nose, etc. as they wait in line for the ladies room.  Some of the more risque ladies in the know, occasionally flash as they pass by, which brings out a roar in the men’s room.

Al Hrabosky’s Ballpark Saloon is located at Cerre and Eighth Streets just south of the new Busch Stadium.

Here’s a story about the saloon.

Sumo Tube.... looks like an easter egg

The Sumo Tube is a new, exciting, and challenging freestyle towable that is not connected to the boat. The rider slides into the Sumo suit and holds on to a grab handle on the end of a 60' rope. The rider can roll 360s from left to right, jump the wakes, steer left and right by moving their arms, or just glide across the water's surface. It's a fast and fun bodysurfing thrill ride. The Sumo Tube can also be used in the crashing waves as a body surfing tube. The Sumo tube is one chamber and inflates quickly. 
Sug. Retail: $119.95

Old Fred's last words

Old Fred's hospital bed is surrounded by well-wishers, but it doesn't look good. Suddenly, he motions frantically to the pastor for something to write on.  The pastor lovingly hands him a pen and a piece of paper, and Fred uses his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then dies.  The pastor thinks it best not to look at the note right away, so he places it in
his jacket pocket.  
At Fred's funeral, as the pastor is finishing his eulogy, he realizes he's wearing the jacket he was wearing when Fred died.  "Fred handed me a note just before he died," he says.  "I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration in it for us all."  Opening the note, he reads aloud, "Help!  You're standing on my oxygen tube!"

Tiger Woods' golf miracle

Woods_tigerTiger made a shot recently on the 16th hole of the back 9 at Augusta that teetered on the edge of the hole…. paused…. then miraculously rolled into the cup.  How did it happen?  How did it go in?  Some pretty interesting theories about it.
