de Havilland Beaver Plane Crash at Lake Hood

This is a video of the deHavilland beaver plane crash at Lake Hood in Anchorage AK, on June 7, 2009. My father and I were videotaping planes at Lake Hood taking off and landing when the wind kicked up and sent the Beaver taking off right at us.
The wing was less than 5 feet over our heads, and the radial engine was less than 8 feet to my left. No exaggeration!! The Slow motion at the end gives a little better look at how close it was. Everyone onboard was in pristine condition, 2 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs

the art of making snake wine

How to make medicinal snake wine in China.
1. hold the snake head with clamps then hold the clamp steady with your foot.
2. take the tail and pull it up.
3. make a small snip at the base of the head then from the end of the tail, slit the scissor thru until the small cut at the head.
4. gut the snake out, make sure that the innards are taken out.
5. rinse the snake in two sets of alcohol solution.
6. put the snake (still wriggling)in a clear glass jar with some medicinal herbs.
7. separate the heart (still beating) from the innards and put in the jar.
8. repeat the process until the jar is 2/3 full.
9. fill the jar with clear wine (or some highly concentrated alcohol)
10. watch the snakes writhe in agony in their last moments of reflex-life
Nota bene: let the snake wine sit for at least three months. this drink is like an heirloom, it could be passed from one generation to the next. its been known to last for 500 years.... hmmmm.
