Utah Daredevils known as the Moab Monkeys   Leave a comment


The Moab Monkeys, a Utah-based group of athletes, have no issues with vertigo or adrenaline. They recently set up a spider web net over a canyon near Moab, Utah at a head-spinning height of 400 ft to relax and BASE jump. The hand-woven, pentagonal web is 200ft. away from the nearest cliff.

To chill, shoot photos and enjoy the breathtaking views, they first had to walk the 200ft. distance on a rope. Then they left the net by diving into the void through a hole in the middle of the net, landing with their parachutes minutes later.

Moab Monkeys is a group that specializes in slacklining, highlining, BASE jumping and filmmaking. They have performed their stunts in places like Rio and the Austrian Alps. However it’s no coincidence that their hometown is Moab – a town in Southern Utah famous for its Mars-like landscape with canyons, cliffs and arches.

Love on the Beach   Leave a comment

beach1.

Down to the beach
Where young lovers closely nestle
As sand creatures cause the sand to bristle
Seagulls gliding in the air with screams and whistles
Kids picking up shells and building stormy sand castles

Down to the beach
Where mostly good vibes flow
Down to the beach
We go whilst there is still sun without snow

And you think you have a lemon for a job.   Leave a comment


These are pictures of ship breaking in Chittagong, Bangladesh.   These old ships are pulled ashore and then the work begins.  Unskilled labourers use mainly setaline torches to break down the ships.  The steel is then pulled or carried to trucks further inland. 

The labourers can make up to US $1.50 a day.  No safety equipment or standards.  The heat can be excruciating.  Tough days work. 

Western countries used to break down their own ships.  But dismantling a steel ship is costly with high union wages in European countries.  So the ship owners sell the ships to ship breaking firms in India, Bangladesh and China.

This has got to be the closest to earthbound hell that you can get.
