Found here and here. Cat slide h/t Rightymouse.

The motorbike accident happened 06 July 2022 on Camenite de Cachoeiras de Macacu, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – he survived with no serious injuries.. Commenters on this video blame both the woman AND the cyclist; she for opening her car door without looking, and the cyclist for passing on the wrong side of the concrete truck.

South In My Soul, The Farr Brothers (1947) Hugh Farr played fiddle and sang bass; his brother Karl played guitar. In 1934, the Farrs were hired by a group called The Pioneer Trio, who renamed themselves Sons Of The Pioneers. The group is still performing, with new members being added as the elders move on.

Night Fishing in Hawaii 1948

The colorization of this photo shows you exactly what it was like to go night fishing in Hawaii years before it became an official state of the Union. At the time, Hawaiians used spears to catch fish in the shallow part of the ocean or along the more rocky terrain. The kukui-nut torch that this man is using isn’t just to light up his evening, it draws in fish to the his position.

In order to get a bright enough torch fishermen would wrap the kukui nut in leaves and attach them to a pole and light them on fire. To make them brighter they wrapped more leaves around the nut and then they would add roasted kukui nuts to a hollow sheath of bamboo and light those on fire as well. Even in the middle of the 20th century this was a way to remain close to nature while taking from the sea.
