D'awwwwww of the Day

This Newly Released Footage of Felix Baumgartner's jump to Earth is Absolutely Insane.

On October 14, 2012, Felix Baumgartner ascended more than 24 miles above Earth's surface to the edge of space in a stratospheric balloon. Millions across the globe watched as he opened the door of the capsule, stepped off the platform, and broke the speed of sound while free falling safely back to Earth. Felix set three world records that day—and inspired us all to reach beyond the limits of our own realities, and reimagine our potential to achieve the incredible. 

"I wish you could see what I can see," said Baumgartner, just seconds before stepping cooly from a pod suspended 128,100 feet above the ground. "Sometimes, you have to get up really high to understand how small you are."

Be Advised: The whole video has an understandably vertiginous quality about it, but things get especially intense around the 5:20 mark, where Baumgartner, shortly after breaking the sound barrier, loses control of his free-fall and begins to spin. He manages to stabilize himself, but not before almost passing out. It's a nauseating view, even for armchair-spacejumpers, so be careful not to lose your lunch.

B.C. Liquor Laws Overhauled: Booze sales allowed in Grocery Stores... Kids now allowed in Pubs with Parents!

The British Columbia government is lowering its inhibitions on dozens of antiquated liquor rules and endorsing all 73 recommendations in a report that includes allowing grocery stores to sell alcohol.

After months of announcing and re-announcing some of the proposed changes, the government said on Friday that it fully supports suggestions made by British Columbians during a liquor policy overhaul.
Justice Minister Suzanne Anton didn't say when the recommendations would be implemented. But some of the changes, such as doing away with fencing at beer gardens and increasing alcohol variety at sporting events, could be put in place as early as the summer, she added.
Guests at B.C. hotels would be allowed to bring drinks bought at the lobby bar up to their rooms. Previously, only hotel staff were allowed to carry the liquor up. The hours when guests can receive liquor through room service will also be extended. Happy hour, an event banned for years in the province and allowing children into pubs were also part of the recommendations.
Anton said there are details that need to be worked out before all the recommendations can be implemented, and she is aiming to make legislative amendments at "the earliest opportunity."

It's about time they let kids start drinking in Pubs... Or do parents just drive home with their kids after having a few? Regardless... I'm buying milk and wine at the same time ;) party owl says Woot! Woot!
