Amazing two year old drummer!

While some kids are learning their ABCs and 123s, others are learning to become true musicians:

Two-year-old Lennox showcased his musical talents this week when he started drumming to Speak Life’s “I Can.” With just a pair of sticks in his hand, the toddler didn’t miss a single beat. He even took a mini solo, and nailed it.

Quick, someone needs to buy this kid some drums and sign him up for some classes.

How the food we feed young people affects their brain

How the food we feed young people affects their brain

At work we’ve been reflecting recently on how our young people’s diet affects their brain.

When it comes to what you bite, chew and swallow, your choices have a direct and long-lasting effect on the most powerful organ in your body: your brain. So which foods cause you to feel so tired after lunch? Or so restless at night? Mia Nacamulli has this amazing video which takes you into the brain to find out.

Sitting Inside A Giant Water Balloon When It Explodes

Slow Mo Guys

The Slow Mo Guys are brilliant!  I love their slow motion videos.  This time Dan Gruchy and Gavin Free are exploring a whole new level of stunt strangeness by making Dan crawl inside a giant balloon, which is then filled with water until it explodes.

The Slow Mo Guys filled another 6 foot long balloon with water a while back and jumped on it until it burst.  Seeing Dan sitting there with his head sticking out of a giant watery balloon sac is utterly hilarious!

It comes from the Kuwait Open tournament, where Quentin Robinot of France hits a behind-the-back-shot that completely flummoxes Belarus’ Kiryl Barabanov.  The YouTube video became a viral hit on sports media sites on Wednesday and it’s easy to see why — even Barabanov can’t do anything but give Robinot his applause.

Meteor Smashes YouTube Record

The meteor that struck Russia wasn’t just the largest space rock to penetrate Earth’s atmosphere in a century. By one measure, it was also the biggest thing to hit online video since — well, ever.

Collectively, all eyewitness meteor videos uploaded to YouTube and DailyMotion (the two largest online video services) garnered more than 130 million views over the weekend, according to a blog post from social analysis service Visible Measures. That’s the vastest rate of viral growth ever seen for an online video event.

Visible Measures identified more than 400 videos uploaded since Friday. Some 160 of those clips have surpassed 100,000 views.

Not all videos were viewed equally. The clear winner, with 26.7 million views and counting, was this stunning and terrifying video from Russia Today:
