    Fearless Felix Baumgartner

    Skydiver "Fearless Felix" Baumgartner has done it again. On Wednesday, Baumgartner took another stratospheric leap, this time from an altitude of more than 18 miles - an estimated 96,640 feet, nearly three times higher than cruising jetliners. He landed safely near Roswell, N.M. His top speed was an estimated 536 mph, said Brian Utley, an official observer on site.

    Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.

    I heard they had to custom design the suit around Baumgartner, so it could fit around his giant balls of steel.

    Nice
