Under the Sea

If you are looking for a mini-getaway… for your mind… take the time to watch this video taken of Kuroshio Sea, the main tank at the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan.  Touted as the second largest aquarium in the world, this tank holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters.

The video soundtrack is titled “Please don’t go” by Barcelona.

Dare, Double Dare or Physical Challenge?

June 24th was the premier of Wipeout – a new, must-see show on ABC, Tuesdays at 8/7c.   It is a physical challenge game show where the challenges are laugh out-loud ridiculous.  Like a trying to run across a tiny ledge above a mud pit without getting punched off into it by mechanical boxing gloves.   And the commentary, both by the hosts and the contestants, is just as good.

So what if it is a blatant ripoff of that Japanese extreme challenge show isn’t original?  I know plenty of people who aren’t… oh wait, bad argument! 

*I would like to give a shout-out to my beloved DVR, who made Wipeout a possibility.
