The Rubik Cube

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ8ZWMlObGE&feature=related]

I have never managed to solve a rubik’s cube – so this youtube video fascinates me.  It’s 1000 frames, and tooka good portion of 2 days to film and assemble it.  How fast can you finish a rubik cube in?

French coach driver an omen for his nation’s Euro 2008 hopes?

Driver of France’s team coach, almost as bad as the players:

Raymond Domenech might have known that it wasn’t going to be his team’s night when the driver of the French team coach made about five attempts – never mind that he backed into the white car behind, twice – to enter the stadium, albeit around a tight corner.

Torres in latest Nike advert

El Nino’s 24 goals for Liverpool made him the highest scoring debutant foreign striker in English football.  Nike have now created a great video showing Liverpool fans trying to learn Spanish so they can praise him for his efforts for the mighty Reds:

Britain’s Got Talent: Hoop La La

Hannah and I have just been watching last night’s Britain’s Got Talent, as we missed it last night, and I had to blog about Hoop La La.  It is just fantastic – I want to be able to do this:

That was their semi-final performance, here was their audition:

Their website says they run sessions and classes, I’m really tempted to see if they could come and do an evening with some of my youth groups!  What do you think?

YouTube – dangers and benefits in youth ministry

Saw this on Youth Ministry Support, a helpful warning:

There’s so much that’s great about YouTube. I can post a video and my students can put it on their myspace or blog and tell all of their friends about the mission trip they just went on or the latest camp that we had and I don’t even need to store it on our church’s server.

BUT THERE’S A WARNING: During my latest video post on youtube of our student leadership retreat at the end of the video “related videos” come up. I never took the time to see what they were but I had a parent call me yesterday and let me know that at the end of the video are videos with the subject of “premature ejaculation”.

Not good to say the least. The parent was great about it but they won’t all be.

Here’s the fix I found on YouTube’s help site that gets rid of related videos in embeded videos

It does say you cannot control what the related videos are but at least you can block them when you post a video to your blog or website.
