A peek at future transportation
Transportation is a growing problem around the world. More vehicles on the road lead to more traffic and pollution. This inventor thinks he has a solution. Called the Shweeb, it combines a monorail with a bicycle. People can pedal to work safely above the traffic.

It would work best if you could take your own bike from home and then get on the 'freeway' when you needed it. So you would not need to walk to work from the Shweeb-station.

Starring the famous and hilarious John Cleese, Compaq's new portable computer is put up against a … 22-pound fish!
Talk about creatures of habit: Once a dog gets used to the idea that he can’t walk through a glass door, he won’t walk through it even when the glass is gone.

Ravens have a certain image. They tend to show up when creepy things happen. But many often overlook how crafty Ravens can be. That is especially true when they're going after food. You won't believe what they can do. PBS special.
