FELIX BAUMGARTNER is the first to break the sound barrier just by ... falling. Last October a balloon lifted him to the stratosphere. He jumped, parachuting a record 22.6 miles and hitting 843.6 mph. At 44, he now plans to pilot rescue helicopters.
A good chart on basic dining etiquette. I especially like that this illustrates the difference between putting the knife and fork in the "rest" position" and the "finished" position, although I was taught to signal a finished meal with the knife and fork placed a little higher on the side of the plate. A lot of people (including a few "experts") mistakenly treat the rest position as a sign that they are done with the meal.
