I was recently checking out some of the quads on youtube. I definitely would have bought one back in my teens or 20s. But now, well, not that it's totally gimmicky but I can't imagine using it more than once or five times for the thrill and then boxing it away to forget. Maybe I'll revisit when I'm even older and seeking out a new hobby.
A submarine one would be even more cool though. Maybe I'll just wait on that.
As to the pic, I think that's real and I found a thing with the photographer saying he'd gotten a few shots. That thing (or others) came up a couple of times but the guy never saw it. It's like that in the gay bars too now.http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/page/2
ABC News – by AVIANNE TAN
This Instagram photo shows a man missing a humpback whale surface two feet away from him because he was glued to his phone.
The moment was caught during a whale watch in Redondo Beach, California, professional photographer Eric Smith told ABC News today.
“A small private sailboat maneuvered really close to the whales, and this guy on it was literally sitting in that position and never moved,” Smith said. “He could have been texting his mom in the hospital for all I know, but I thought it sucked that he missed such a wonderful moment happening just two feet in front of him.”
Smith said he had about five photos of whales with the private sailboat in the background, but the guy never got off his phone in any of the pictures.
Texting while sailing around whales is like watching a Jacques Cousteau documentary with subtitles.
