    Insane. Thanks for sharing.

    But after watching that and being amazed, I get depressed because instead of praising brainpower like that, we award steroid-monkeys multimillion dollar sport contracts that get paid even if they don't play half a season for a stubbed toe.

    Interesting comparison, but so true.
