The Yan­kee Leaper Jumps Nia­gara: Did you know? On Octo­ber 7th (that’s today!), 1829, Sam Patch became America’s first famous dare­dev­il after his suc­cess­ful 125-foot plunge into the Nia­gara Riv­er at the base of Nia­gara Falls. A crowd of thou­sands gath­ered in the fog, wind, and rain to watch his stunt, but just min­utes before he was sched­uled to jump a met­al sup­port chain snapped from the lad­der. The stunt was delayed until 4pm, at which point Patch climbed to the top of the plat­form on Goat Island and pen­cil-dived into the churn­ing water near Cave of the Winds. When Patch did not emerge, a res­cue boat cir­cled the loca­tion where he had dis­ap­peared. Soon, though, a great roar swept through the crowd as Patch was spot­ted stand­ing onshore wav­ing to the spectators.

North­ern Expo­sure: Did you know? Octo­ber 6th (that’s today!), 1861, is the birth­day of famous Nor­we­gian explor­er, Fridtjof Wedel-Jarls­berg Nansen. Lead­ing an expe­di­tion across the Green­land inte­ri­or in 1888, Nansen pio­neered suc­cess­ful arc­tic trav­el with inno­va­tions in equip­ment and cloth­ing that would pave the way and influ­ence gen­er­a­tions of polar trav­el­ers. Most famous for reach­ing record north­ern lat­i­tudes dur­ing a North Pole expe­di­tion from 1893–1896, Nansen retired from pro­fes­sion­al explo­ration and ded­i­cat­ed him­self to sci­en­tif­ic study upon his return. Win­ner of a Nobel Peace Prize, Nansen is rec­og­nized as one of the most influ­en­tial Nor­we­gians of all time.

Swim­ming With the Sharks: Did you know?

On August 22 (that’s today!), 1979, Diana Nyad com­plet­ed a 102-mile open ocean swim from North Bimi­ni Island, Bahamas to Juno Beach, Flori­da. In the Gulf Stream that is teem­ing with sharks, Nyad swam with­out a pro­tec­tive shark cage. She was nev­er attacked by sharks, but did get into a tan­gle with a Box Jel­ly­fish. Pow­er­ing past it, she aver­aged 3.7 miles-per-hour and com­plet­ed the swim in a lit­tle over a day. Nyad’s feat set both the men’s and women’s world record for dis­tance swim­ming with­out a wet­suit. Her record still stands today, but hope­ful­ly not for long. Nyad, age 62, is plan­ning a 103-mile Cuba to Flori­da swim in 2012.

The Lit­tle Stove That Could: Did you know? We’re car­ry­ing Esbit camp stoves today. Ever won­der where those lit­tle won­ders came from? Alex Soy­er laid the ground­work for the mod­ern-day portable stove in 1849. He designed the small, sin­gle-burn­er stove to run on pres­sur­ized fuel and to have suf­fi­cient heat­ing pow­er to cook a meal in a cou­ple of min­utes. Deemed “The Mag­ic Stove,” it paved the way for the more pop­u­lar Primus, which wasn’t devel­oped until the late nine­teenth cen­tu­ry. So, the next time you are about to devour a bag of pip­ing hot beef stroganoff, give nod to Soy­er, a great man with a great idea.

Surfers, this might be the only time you hear us say that some­times it’s best to ignore the call of the waves.

Two weeks ago, a dead whale washed up on the shores of War­roo­ra Sta­tion and near­ly 100 sharks — includ­ing tiger sharks and reef sharks — took advan­tage of the shore­line buffet.

In this short clip, Bill­abong surfer Rachel Camp­bell plays a dan­ger­ous game of chick­en, run­ning ankle-deep into the water amidst the feed­ing frenzy.

Blood Bank: Did you Know? On May 21 (that’s today!), 1881, Clara Bar­ton and Adol­phus Solomon found­ed the Amer­i­can Red Cross. You can cel­e­brate the orga­ni­za­tion’s birth­day this week by stop­ping by a dona­tion cen­ter. Those of you need­ing more moti­va­tion than cheap thrills and a free bag of chips to get over your squea­mish­ness about donat­ing might con­sid­er this: Blood can’t be man­u­fac­tured. It can only come from donors. And every two sec­onds, some­one in the U.S. needs blood. (The aver­age car acci­dent vic­tim needs a whop­ping 100 pints.) They’ll only drain about a pint from you if you donate, which isn’t a lot more than what you prob­a­bly lost the last time you plant­ed your face into the sin­gle track.
