The latest Internet craze isn't Facebook or Twitter. Now all eyes are on the Bed Jump blog on HotelsByCity, a hotel review Website that started the craze years ago. The InterContinental hotel chain renewed interest in the odd sport by starting a contest last year, according to USAToday. Travelers post photos of themselves in hotels around the world using their beds as trampolines. Each bed jumper tries to outdo those who have jumped before him. Hotel guests perform fantastic feats — all in mid-air above a hotel bed. (Text: Lea Holland)
