Nature always makes you feel small. Brazilian surfer Rodrigo Koxa surfed a record-setting 80-foot wave in November 2017 off the coast of Nazaré, Portugal. Just look at the lighthouse and onlookers in perspective to the surfer surrounded by the mountainous wave, or shall we say avalanche. Watch it for yourself.

Taped in June 1997, the founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos outlines his vision for his company's music and books webstore model.

What a talent!
