Pro streetballer Nemanja “Tricky” Blazic from Belgrade, Serbia, did the Mannequin Challenge with extra flair by spinning a basketball on a pen while writing, on the corner of a book while reading, on a wooden spoon while cooking, and more.

Freeline Skates

Freeline skates are like a skateboard, except there are two small independent skateboards, one for each foot. And no, just like a skateboard, they’re not attached to your feet. They are infinitely harder to master than skateboards. Kuma Films recently captured footage in Kyoto, Japan, of incredible 13-year-old skateboarder, Isamu Yamamoto, showing off his fancy footwork and performing tricks on freeline skates.

Today is the 75th anniversary of Carole Lombard‘s death. She was killed in a plane crash on her return from a wildly-successful war bond tour, making her the first American woman to die in service in WWII. Her husband Clark Gable turned down FDR’s offer of a military funeral with full honors, because she’d stipulated a quiet affair in her will. But the US Maritime Commission did name a Liberty ship after her. She was only 33 years old.

This is one of my favorite photos of Carole, by George Hurrell. She’s wearing the gold locket given to her by Russ Columbo, and the star sapphire jewelry given to her by William Powell. Also visible is the cheek scar from a 1929 car accident that nearly ruined her career. Rest in peace, Carole. Your fans are still legion.

Sure, aerial acrobatics, inverted flight, YAWN. But this time it’s with a GoPro camera mounted on a 360-degree gimbal.

Holding the world record for most inverted flat spins, Spencer Suderman takes to the sunny Southern California skies for another one of his routine flights. The only thing routine about it: the takeoff and landing. In between those two events, you can find Spencer in an inverted flat spin, doing barrel rolls or massive loops. Buckle up, vomiting is prohibited!

Ship Loses Anchor and Chain

It’s not pretty.

People Are Awesome 2015

People are Awesome‘s annual compilation of the web’s best viral videos of 2015:

Professional bowler Michael Long picks up a spare with a striking trick shot where he releases one rapidly spinning ball that creeps down the lane around two specially placed pins before throwing another ball at regular speed to knock down eight of the 10 pins.

Cyclist Primož Ravnik rode down the incredibly steep wall of a dam in Žirovnica, Slovenia and filmed the incredible ride with a helmet-mounted GoPro. The video was submitted as part of the GoPro of the World Best Line Contest, which is offering $20,000 to one winner who submits the most impressive unedited bike clip shot with a GoPro.
