Dumb and Dumber

Mark Crowe and grizzly bear

Mark and his close friend – the Grizzly Bear!

Sometimes brothers do the dumbest things.  You may have already noticed Mark Crowe bungee jumping over Virtoria Falls in Africa.   Now that’s dumb.

Here are the brothers playing in lava fields in Hawaii.  I am not going to say who is dumber, but it is my web site.

We were able to tease out some flowing lava and wrap it around a quarter.  We now have quarters inside lava rocks, so that’s something.

Here is a very short video of one of us testing the temperature of the lava. It was hot.
