Skydiver survives 5,000 foot fall, plus William Shatner! [VIDEO]

So, it's kind of a bloggy tradition that Fridays are for silly videos and cat, dog and, yes, ferret blogging. But here's the deal: I don't have a blog of my own. Evan's off for the day and he gave me the keys to Peek, so I'm gonna post some silly video even though it's only Tuesday. Sue me.

First up, something for fans of Zeppelin, kitties and Vikings!

Next, via Driftglass, we have a particularly excruciating William Shatner clip. How you can not love a man who's this cheesy is way beyond me.

Lastly, here's a skydiver falling 5,000 feet and surviving. I like how his mate asks, "Dude, are you OK?"

Oh, and here's Mr. Red McDogg, my faithful friend. Behold the ferocity of his cuteness!
