Die 10 viralsten Videos von 2009

"It's not funny until someone else is laughing."

Yesterday, I totally lucked out. First, I walked across Spring Street to look at the menu of “Bread” and was NOT run over, because the driver of a van had superhuman reflexes.

By now, 20 million people have watched his “Frozen Grand Central”, a public performance so inspiring that even the marketing department at T-Mobile... Read More

Truth revealed. Twitter is serious.

Hi there, readers of  ideaswilltravel.com. Most likely you are not reading IWT to make this world a better place. But we’ve all been a part of something big this year ;-) This summer IWT wrote about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, how it was dicovered in 1997, and how knowledge of its existence has only lately travelled into the public realm – via YouTube.
