Six interesting stories on the web

Here it is -- a six-pack of interesting stories on the Web. Each one of these stories is amazing in some way, and each one has a technological twist that makes it even more unexpected:
  1. The tale of the radioactive boy scout -- the kid gets points for amazing creativity. But then he probably loses them again for not having so much common sense.

  2. Surviving Partial Ejection from A-6 Aircraft -- Truly a harrowing, white-knuckle experience with a relatively happy ending.

  3. Just a drop in the bucket -- how "a little bit each day" can really add up.

  4. Gliding into infamy -- the amazing story of the Gimli Glider. See also this tv news story.

  5. The Story of Oak Island -- The world's most amazing treasure hunt.

  6. An Unbelievable Man-Made Disaster That Almost Could Not Be Undone -- Shows you how to create your own personal Grand Canyon (not valid in all states, some restrictions apply).

Hey - Brian here. What's up with chnaging the format for CC? I asked for the same exact thing way back on March 1 and you said no. I guess you like CC better than me? I see how you are. ;)

Good stuff. Regardless, I'm glad you changed it.

Wow! A dead stick landing in an airliner.
