This video comes courtesy of my brother Scott. The title of the video is "Mega Bomba" (no translation needed) and I couldn't think of anything better than to copy the original description of the video:

Culture is great. But where in your cultural heritage did you get tape explosives to a sledge hammer and slam it on a piece of metal to make it explode?

Watch the whole thing. The part that is pure gold comes at about the 1 min 30 sec mark.

Apologies to those who understand Spanish... my older brother pointed out this morning that there are some bad words uttered after the "grand finale". I'm sure if I witnessed that in person some choice words might have escaped my mouth as well.

Sweet Bento Art

Okay, time for one of my non-video posts. I'm not sure of the reason why, but out there on the intermets there is a fascination with Bento (lots of blogs and forums dedicated to it). I've run across it a few times and it is pretty interesting to me, even though I can't figure out why (isn't it just Japanese food packed into a lunchbox?)

I ran across these pictures today of Bento art, though, and I was amazed! That's creativity.

And my personal favorite. Gotta love Wall-E:
