Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Pushing The Envelope, Part VI:

The human being has always pushed the envelope into and beyond the realms of danger. This is the sixth of various weekend postings displaying how restless Man is with the mundane and how he purposely crosses the threshold into danger willingly -- and sometimes unwillingly.

Now witness: Danny MacAskill -- who is not a teenager but a mature adult (26 years old) whose skills are rather preternatural.



Beautifully filmed in Scotland, it illustrates the amazing connection that can occur between Man and Simple Machine -- and reminiscent of Parkour. Enjoy!
