10 Obscure Extreme Sports to Try Before You Die!

Are you looking over your bucket list and deciding that it’s just a little too boring? Here are a few adrenaline-packed extreme sports to give it a little kick. Although, after reading this list, you may think that the title of this post should be changed to “10 Obscure Sports to Die Trying!” 1. Street Luging If you ever watched the winter Olympics, then you’ve seen the luge competition. Racers sit, face up, on a small sled and race down a hill, feet first, at speeds up to 140 miles per hour. Want to give it a try but don’t have access to a luge track? No worries. Just use a treacherous mountain road. Street Lugers go to the highest point of a mountainous highway, lie on a sled no bigger than a skateboard, and zip down the mountain. Of course it’s important to stay focused so that you can dodge all moving vehicles as you make your way, hopefully without getting squished, to the bottom of the mountain. 2. Volcano Boarding Believe it or not, thousands of sport extremist travel to Nicaragua’s Cerro Negro mountain for the privilege of volcano boarding. Participants gear up in protective suits, hop on a board constructed of plywood and Formica, and descend the volcano’s slope at up to speeds up to 50 miles per hour. Perhaps they move so quickly because they’re...

The 12,000 Year Old Secret

Humans. How would you feel about living for hundreds or even thousands of years, free from disease and/or chronic pain and other maladies?  Sounds like science fiction doesn’t it but a newly released book claims otherwise citing evidence left behind by many of history’s brightest minds (Hermes, Paracelsus, Flamel, R. Boyle). Geometry, Astronomy and Alchemy were the three ancient sciences.  Geometry was math, Astronomy was space therefore time and Alchemy was the Science of Nature. The book makes the claim that the mythical Philosophers Stone is real and that it’s simply a part of nature.  The Philosophers Stone is...

Kicking off Stampede

As Calgary kicks off Stampede week with the Royals Will & Kate starting the Parade.  Us at Malewail started our Stampede week at the Century Casino with Big Sugar and Wide Mouth Mason.  Myself not being a major fan was surprised to find I was a bigger fan then I knew.  Song after song hit after hit I realized that I had been enjoying Wide Mouth Mason and Big Sugar on the radio through out the last decade.  It was a light-hearted love filled energy that emanated from the bands and the crowd.  Starting off the night was Wide Mouth Mason with only three members in the band leaving you wondering where all the great sound was coming from.  Of course three is all they needed with the diverse talent they bring to the stage.  As the night progressed the bass player from Wide Mouth Mason made a quick costume change and took his place as lead guitar and vocals for Big Sugar.  Again reminding us of the diverse talent on the stage.  Big Sugar also  adorned the stage with a myriad of talent including the lead singers daughter who sang back up vocals.  Makes you wonder if we will be listening to her stuff on the radio over the next decades to come. There is so much to say about the talent and professionalism on the stage last...
