Notorious Surfer Grows Ice-Beard For Catching Waves At Frigid Temperatures8s

Notorious Surfer Grows Ice-Beard For Catching Waves At Frigid Temperatures

Meet America's coolest surfer, Dan Schetter, 39, from Michigan who grew ice beard after he hit the waves of Lake Superior in below-freezing temperatures and had his beard completely frozen. A brave Michigan surfer dared to take on the waves in Lake Superior at below-zero temperatures and grew an incredible 'ice beard' in the process. Notorious Dan Schetter wears a wetsuit designed to withstand the freezing temperatures of -24F with windchill as he rides waves through Lake Superior in Michigan's cold weather. Although his body is well-equipped to withstand cold temperatures, his face is still exposed to the cold, and he often ends up his surfing sessions with eyebrows and beard completely covered in icicles. This extreme athlete is known as 'Surfer Dan' and he rides the waves throughout the year, even when temperatures are extremely low. Often times Schetter jumps into the icy water wearing a 9mm XCEL wetsuit, 8mm boots and gloves. That is his armour to survive the cold weather! On windy wintery days, Dan usually gets an ice beard going at -24F temperatures against the wind chill factor, which are the perfect conditions for growing an ice beard. The 39-year-old surfer has been surfing for over 20 years on Lake Superior and the surrounding Great Lakes. He grew up in near Marquette and knows the waters well and surfs year round. It is amazing how the cold doesn't seem to bother him as much as people would think after seeing him all covered in ice. It is because his wetsuit is very thick and made for extremely frigid temperatures. However, it is his numb face that gives people the fright! However, that is not even nearly enough to discourage him from surfing because he genuinely loves catching waves. He has surfed in Japan and Hawaii but the Great Lakes are his home, which he has been mastering for 20 years now. It takes a lot of practice getting into the frigid waters surrounding Michigan in the winter, advises the ‘Ice Man’. In the past, he used to get hypothermia a lot, it is when your body is that cold that you don’t even feel the cold anymore. In those moments, he goes to the happy place in his mind, and reminds himself that everything is going to be just fine! What a dedicated surfer! Credit to @danielschetter

The clip shows the comedian being interviewed and is requested to give his name only to shock the interviewer after stating that his name is Ovuvuevuevue Enyetuenwuevue Ugbemugbem Osas. Mr Osas, who has a Nigerian accent, is prodded into pronouncing his name a second time and to the much surprise of everyone who watched the recording, the man spells out his name with some astounding ease. Can you try to pronounce the most difficult name in Africa? No. We did not think so. However, this is not a real name. It is created for the purposes of this comedy video and is supposed to sound like a Nigerian name. Not the comedian’s true name. The pun is intended and rests on the facts that Nigerian names actually are that long, and that particular name may actually be used by some people. This clip has reached over 300,000 views on YouTube, keeping in mind there are many versions, many sequels and spin-offs which has altogether launched Mr. Osas as an international comic character.

Black Friday aftermath captures store's complete devastation

This was the scene around 8:15 pm on Black Friday at the Nike factory store and it was an utter disaster. The store had been open since 5:00 am and was set to close at midnight. There were tons of people shopping and as you can see, they had no issue walking over boxes and apparel that were just recklessly strewn about the store. For such a huge place it's incredible how almost every inch of the floor was covered in merchandise. People were seen just tossing stuff around and showing disregard for the store's merchandise. Pretty wild scene.

Youngsters' Impromptu Performance On NYC Train Leaves Everyone Surprised1m28s

Youngsters' Impromptu Performance On NYC Train Leaves Everyone Surprised

Train passengers in New York City were treated to an incredible performance by these youngsters. Great work guys! What These Kids Do On The NYC Train Has EVERYONE Surprised! A girl sings for the crowd while a boy, presumably her brother, plays his percussions on a bucket with two drum sticks. Their voices form impeccable harmonics, even with the terrible lack of acoustics in the train. The morning commute takes a heavy toll on those travelling in the New York City subway, so little surprises such as this one bring a welcome refreshment. If the song is familiar, then you are probably older than you think, or you just have very good taste in music! It is the Temptations’ signature song ‘My Girl’. Great job, guys! Both professional and amateur musicians like these kids have been entertaining the crowds in public since the beginning of time. Cities employ academic musicians to play intricate classical melodies for the sake of livening up the spirit of the citizens, while others give out permissions to buskers for the same reason - do what you love and get aid for it. One particular performance got the same effect on the crowd passing by, not so much because of the musicians, but because of who joined them in their performance! While a string quartet was playing “The Last of the Mohicans" in the subway in Istanbul, a little girl whipped out her baton and began directing the musicians like a true maestro!

Grandma With Alzheimer's Didn’t Forget How To Yodel44s

Grandma With Alzheimer's Didn’t Forget How To Yodel

This 84-year-old woman suffers from Alzheimer's disease, and this condition has made her forget many things, but clearly yodeling isn't one of them! Watch this video and enjoy her yodeling. This is one sweet lady that sure made our day! Awesome! Yodeling is a form of singing which involves repeated and rapid changes of pitch between the low-pitch chest register and the high-pitch head register or falsetto. The English word yodel is derived from the German, and originally Austro-Bavarian, word jodeln, meaning "to utter the syllable jo". This vocal technique is used in many cultures worldwide. Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and worsens over time. It is the cause of 60% to 70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events i.e. short-term memory loss. As the disease advances, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation, easily getting lost, mood swings, loss of motivation, not managing self care, and behavioural issues. Gradually, bodily functions are lost, ultimately leading to death. Although the speed of progression can vary, the average life expectancy following diagnosis is three to nine years. It is very satisfying to watch how pleased this lady gets when she yodels. It is truly amazing how wonderful she sounds and gives a wonderful performance indeed. It is moments like this that make life worth living, and it is also a bitter reminder that we should live our life to the fullest!

Teppanyaki master chef performs amazing tricks with eggs40s

Teppanyaki master chef performs amazing tricks with eggs

Jerry is nothing short of a teppanyaki ninja. He is a chef at the Benihana restaurant in Toronto, Ontario. When customers sit down at his table for a meal, they are in for a treat beyond the incredible taste of the food. Jerry begins by smacking his spatula on the grill and announcing that the show is about to start. All eyes are on him as he begins to flip, spin, and juggle the utensils. They clang together with a sound like clashing swords as Jerry amazes his diners with his coordination and dexterity. The food follows the flashing spatula and fork and Jerry begins with an egg that he spins on his grill. He flips the egg with his spatula, keeping it spinning and then he tosses it and catches it without cracking the fragile shell. With a final toss, the egg is thrown high in the air and then caught with precision on the side of the spatula. The egg runs out of the shell onto the grill, leaving the guests delighted and dazzled. Jerry is not finished yet. He brings out another egg, sets it spinning and tosses it even higher in the air with his spatula. This time the egg disappears in Jerry's chef hat. Laughter erupts and even Jerry chuckles at the reaction. Jerry performs and jokes with the guests throughout the meal preparation, somehow able to concentrate on cooking, performing tricks and engaging in small talk. He finishes off with another round of spatula spinning as a grand finale and he points right at the camera with a grin that displays just the right amount of cockiness. And his confidence is well earned. He's managed to charm and entertain his diners and leave them with a culinary experience that will have them talking for months. Dinner at Jerry's table at the Benihana Restaurant is like sitting down with a cross between a samurai and a master chef. It is both exciting and delicious!
