On Sunday, Felix Baumgartner broke both the sound barrier AND the record for the highest freefall. What would make a man hurl himself from a balloon-lifted capsule, dozens of miles above earth? Science! Baumgartner’s drop will help professionals develop new parachute systems, provide info to aid in emergency spacecraft evacuation, and — most importantly — offer valuable data about high-velocity impacts on dirt fields by Austrian feet. But that’s just the beginning of what we can learn from this momentous man-hurling!
New York Comic Con was this past weekend and the Usual Gang of Idiots was there! We have some photos to share with those who couldn't make it.
Ah, it feels like it was just yesterday when we hosted our now infamous "Mad about MAD" panel at San Diego Comic-Con. That's because it was only a few of months ago. (Seriously, how many of these Comic-Cons are there?) If you were there, you were treated to plenty of bad puns and the sweet sound of our team of panelists breaking into song. If you weren't there, you should probably count yourself lucky. But if you're a glutton for punishment, you can go back and read the archive of our live SDCC panel recap.
