If you haven't seen it yet, check out the crazy downhill biking video that's making the rounds. It's from the rider's point of view, and the course he's on is CRAZY steep.

Especially at the beginning, when he's on a thin trail with CLIFFS on both sides of it.

(Don't miss the part where he rides DOWN one of those cliffs at :24. And the steepest part of the course is probably at 1:04. Then he does a 360 at 1:38.)

BOB-OK, why would anyone do this? One slip............

Summary

Just in time for Easter, the highly anticipated release of HEAVEN IS FOR REAL in theaters nationwide on April 16 thoughtfully raises important questions that every person must ultimately face regarding the person of Jesus and the existence of an afterlife. Based on the true story of four-year-old Colton Burpo's near-death experience in 2003 while in surgery for a ruptured appendix, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL follows many of the details found in the New York Times best-selling 2010 book of the same name.

Produced by Joe Roth and T.D. Jakes, this Sony/TriStar film is directed by Randall Wallace (BRAVEHEART) and stars Greg Kinnear (AS GOOD AS IT GETS, YOU'VE GOT MAIL) as small-town Nebraska pastor and volunteer firefighter Todd Burpo, Kelly Reilly (SHERLOCK HOLMES) as his stay-at-home wife, Sonja, and newcomer Connor Corum as their young son, Colton. While HEAVEN IS FOR REAL does not clearly present the biblical teaching on how a person gets to heaven or comes to know Jesus, it is a high quality outreach tool for Christians to share with non-believers about the reality of heaven and the Gospel.

A video called "World's Toughest Job" is getting millions of hits on YouTube. It's a guy interviewing people for a FAKE job, which requires 135 hours a week on your FEET, with no breaks. And it pays NOTHING. So obviously no one's interested.

But by the end, you find out the job he's describing is being a MOM. And the whole thing is a Mother's Day ad for greeting cards. (He reveals it's a prank at 2:44. And don't miss the woman who gets choked up talking about her mom at 3:35.)

Children of the '80s will remember the first time they stuck their brand-new Nevermind cassette in a Walkman. This is an experience the kids below can't even begin to comprehend.

(As for the kids of the '90s: Don't feel too superior. We're pretty sure these kids would be just as confused at your Everclear and your CD Walkman.)

So often the mark of a good song is how well it can handle different arrangements and interpretations. By that criteria, Bon Jovi's Top 10 hit 'Lay Your Hands on Me,' holds up well, as it has been covered by country legend Dolly Parton.

The song appears on her new album, 'Blue Smoke,' which will be released next month, but she previewed her version during her Australian tour in February (video above). Speaking to the media today (April 14), Parton reveals that she found an alternate meaning for the song than perhaps originally intended.

"When I first heard that song, years ago," she said. "I thought, 'Wow, that sounds so much like a gospel tune — with asking God to lay his hands on you.' I grew up in a Pentecostal church, where we believed in healing and laying your hands, and praying for people who were sick and all that."

Parton says that the gospel re-casting of the song came with the blessing, and assistance of its writers. "I called Jon Bon Jovi, and asked if he would be opposed for me turning it into a gospel tune — and I called Richie Sambora, who is a co-writer on it. We all three got together, and everybody threw in their thoughts and their ideas. They certainly condoned my thoughts and ideas."

Arriving May 13, 'Blue Smoke' contains a couple of duets with old friends Kenny Rogers ('You Can't Make Old Friends') and Willie Nelson ('From Here to the Moon and Back'). In addition to the Bon Jovi cover, she also has her own take on Bob Dylan's 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright.'

Bubba Watson won his second Masters yesterday. And it's understandable if you didn't watch because . . . well, it's GOLF. But THIS would be a little more interesting.

Someone on YouTube took old Masters footage and superimposed stuff you'd see at MINIATURE golf courses. For example, a WINDMILL in front of one of the holes. (Search for "Mini Masters - Crazy Golf." The windmill is at 1:09.)

(Also, someone combined golf footage with the audio of goats screaming like humans . . . so it looks like they're one of those annoying people who yell stuff after golfers hit a shot.)

A student from Indiana University named Julian was one of the contestants on Friday's "Wheel of Fortune". And he had a chance to win a MILLION BUCKS after the wheel landed on the million-dollar prize. All he had to do was solve the puzzle.

Which should have been a slam-dunk, because ALL of the letters were flipped over, and the answer was "Mythological Hero Achilles".

But he pronounced it "AY-chill-ess" and got NOTHING.

Then later, he had a chance to win a CAR by solving the puzzle "World's Fastest Man". And all but two letters in the word "Man" were exposed. But somehow, he messed that up too.

And there was a puzzle where it was fairly obvious that the answer was "On-the-Spot Decision." But he guessed "On-the-Spot DICE SPIN." (???)

(Search for "Julian's Achilles Heel." He loses the million dollars at 1:36, the car at 4:33, and the "dice spin" guess is at 5:30.)

The multitasking Brewers are at it again. First they rescued a dog during spring training. And now, with a season that's currently a winning 6-2, they're producing music videos. The team performs the oft-heard Pharrell Williams' "Happy."

Take a look and you'll find a few familiar faces, some unique dance moves and a couple cameos from the MLB's most popular pup, Hank.
