Man Cartwheels Continuously For 2 Miles

Kung Fu enthusiast Hu Jiakai has hit the headlines after cartwheeling continuously for 2 miles through the streets of Changsha, China. Dressed in full martial arts attire, Jiakai looked every inch like cultural icon Bruce Lee as his antics attracted plenty of attention. It took Jiakai an hour to complete the unusual task which no doubt would have left him in a spin. It was a valiant effort from the 47-year-old who didn’t stop or stand up during the whole event – although the reason for his hour of head-spinning is not yet known.” w/ photo

The newspaper reported that the 1793 penny was sold at such a high price because it is rare and in excellent shape, showing no wear on its lettering, its Lady Liberty face or the wreath on its back.” w/ photos
