I defer to the right in the "You Tube" column for something that i got into in my last week of clinicals...speed stacking.
All I can say is that we have one more thing to do on block island that may involve block island iced teas...
just check it out and amaze in its simplicity and wonder!!
As per wikipedia, the world records are as follows:
Emily Fox's 4-year world record was beaten by Robin Stangenberg with a time of 7.41 seconds. Then on April 15, 2007, David Wolf of Germany set the new world record of 7.25 seconds, at the 2007 World Sport Stacking Championships in Denver. Then the world record was broken by Steve Purugganan with a 7.23 in Attica, New York  Just weeks after this, David Wolf got the record back and did a 7.15s in Germany in November 2007.
In February 2008, Timo Ruehl made history by stacking the first ever sub seven cycle at a sanctioned tournament, 6.80. On February 16, Steven Purugganan took all three world records getting a 1.96 in the 3-3-3, a 2.38 in the 3-6-3, and a 6.65 in the cycle. Steven, with his brother Andrew also took the doubles world record, 7.84. On April 6, during the 2008 World Championships in Denver, Steven Purugganan broke two of these records. These are his current world records :
* 3-3-3 : 1.86 sec
* 3-6-6 : 2.34 sec
* cycle : 6.21 sec
and yes. i have my own set.

So Kung Fu Panda...as the tagline promises...was awesome. It was pretty to look at, and it was fun.
Plus I saw it for 6 bucks. It really draws from the crouching tiger, hero, house o' flying daggers feel...but doesn't suck like shrek b/c it actually pays homage to it's inspiration instead of trying to parody it. Most importantly, jack black didn't annoy the s-word out of me.
I would have paid full price for it.
