That was awesome! B|

Oh and Destin had a Bama cap on in part of the video. :)



Destin is GREAT!
Sometime I need to go through and watch *all* of his videos.

Reminds me of the British dude at the biker rallies with the "Crazy Bike".
It was pink, a girls bike, offset axles, pedals, and the reverse gear steering head. He had a stack of signs that mocked you while you tried to ride it about 25 ft in length between some cones. $5 a ride. Man did that guy rake in the cash at the events.
We chatted one night over beers when he was through.
I got the impression he was doing very, very well.
With a silly bike.

I just watched a couple others. Very informative, and he explains everything in a very easy to understand format... I get the impression that he's an engineer in Huntsville, or at least Madison County, Alabama from the ice skate video where he gets help from a guy at UAH (U. of Alabama in Huntsville) with a renowned ice hockey team.

Look around for an interview someone did with him.
It was very enlightening.
IIRC, he is a mechanical engineer with the space program.
He made some amusing comments about his Southern accent causing people to underestimate him.:D

No shit. :D

There was one show I really liked that was the Rocket City Redneck show on the National Geographic Channel, about a redneck rocket scientist that went about solving problems, like a redneck might... It was pretty cool B|

Great video.

When I was teenager I was parked next to another car stopped/speaking with them. For some teenage boredom reason I thought what would it be like if I if I crossed my feet to use the accelerator/brake/clutch with opposite feet (don’t try this in a crowded parking lot - like the bike video; you can’t).

To the car next to me, they looked quite concerned when I couldn’t stop red-lining my engine (my natural brake foot) and kept lurching the car forward (I thought I was letting off the gas (my right foot) which was actually taking my foot off the brake.

As a kid one day I got the bright idea to swap my hands while riding my bike.
That resulted in a bunch of road rash.>:(

I just found a good parallel to this:
When you install a flight simulator and the darned thing comes up with the elevator reversed.:S
