Snow Inside a Shot Glass, Flew Across the Pacific

I wasn’t serious about it. Everyone in the team wasn’t serious.

But man, it happened. Just like that. Whoosh!

Snow shot glass

Bits of snowpack were shoveled into a shot glass — 9 shot glasses each sealed with wax, transported from Utah to Palawan, Philippines.

That’s 7,771 miles, in case you’re too lazy to Google.

Let me repeat that: 7,771 miles.

That’s freeeeaakin’ insane!

So what’s with the snow in a shot glass?

Legend says that it will bring luck (and fortune) to its keeper. But, to uphold its magical powers, it must be kept a secret.

I knew it. Bill Gates? Jeff Bezos? Warren Buffett?

Please don’t tell anyone I have revealed the secret.

It was my employer/teammate/friend/mentor — too many titles, but that’s true — Damon Burton who made this world record feat.

No. He’s not crazy.

Maybe he thought that shoveling snow and putting it inside a shot glass is way cooler than making a snowman or snowball or snow fort; or doing a snow angel just like Shrek did on the mud? I think it’s fun.

Or maybe he thought his team — never seen snow in their entire life — is eager to see and touch it. I mean, uhm, me?

Or maybe… maybe he’s just too kind.

And who doesn’t want kindness? It’s infectious.

A reminder to myself (and you):

If you think it’s impossible, think again. Maybe it’s not. Maybe there’s a way and nobody has yet to try it.

Find a different point of view. Innovate. Ship.

Aha! How about collecting some sunshine for the people in Antarctica?

Too bad, I don’t have a shot glass. Still, I hope this will bring luck & fortune to its new keeper.

Some interesting questions about life and human behavior: What if there's no money? Why we often feel the urge to prove that we're right and others are wrong? Why we react to things beyond our control? Why we hate? Why it's hard to be content? I don't have all the answers, do you? Let's chat.
