Random WOW: ' Largest Collection of Wooden Ducks '

Fastest 100m in a Pedalo

The Pogo-Stick. A skateboard with no wheels. That helicopter umbrella thing. Yes, I'm listing the most inefficient vehicles ever created! But of course, I've missed the most famous inefficient vehicle of them all: also known as the water-cycle… it's the pedalo!

I don't know who invented the pedalo and in truth it doesn't really matter. The fact is that someone invented it and now the rest of humanity have to deal with the horrible consequences.

On August 18th 2011, cricket legend Shane 'Freddie' Warne climbed into an orange pedalo and, 22 minutes later, had progressed 100m!

He was on holiday in Skegness, and was trying to impress some local schoolgirls!

WOW!
