  • This kid was pretty cool. balancing on that plank, that's atop a drum, that's freely rolling on a small table four feet up he positions some bowls at the far edge of the board and...
  • ...he makes a flicking motion, the bowls are in the air, and land...
  • ... neatly stacked on his head. He even added a cup and spoon. Cool.
  • I don't have a money shot for this one, but in just a few seconds this monk will be doing a hand stand -- on those two fingers. Full weight. Unfortunately his spotter was between the lens and him, so no shot.
