After recent weight exemption approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, Terrafugia’s flying car has taken one step closer to production. At 1430-pounds, it is designed for trips of up to about 450 miles and can travel about 100 miles per hour in the air and 70 miles per hour on road. Well, it’s not what i saw in The Jetsons but I’ll take what I can get.
As Big Ben struck 6am, Mark Webber showed he’s made a full recovery after last Sunday’s crash in Valencia by roaring up to the gates of the Houses of Parliament in London in his Red Bull Racing F1 car, where the Red Bull pit crew were waiting to practice a full Formula One pit stop.
With a week to go until the British Grand Prix rolls into Silverstone, Webber and the full Red Bull pit team stunned onlookers and commuters on Parliament Square as they warmed up for next week’s championship showdown with a 3.2 second pit stop.
Webber, who last weekend in Valencia walked away unscathed from one of the most horrific crashes in recent years, thanks to the strength of his Red Bull Racing F1 car, jumped at the chance to show off his driving skills to the unsuspecting British public.
An excited Webber said of the pit stop: “Obviously, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity – it’s not every day you get to see the sights of London from an F1 car. This year has once again thrown up some interesting rule changes so any practice the team can get is going to make a difference, no matter where it is.”
Kim Kardashian was honored (and I use that word in the loosest possible sense) earlier today in New York with a wax sculpture at Madame Tussauds, and you’re gonna find this hard to believe but that’s it on the right.
What’s the best way to tell the real Kim from the Kim wax replica unveiled today at Madame Tussauds? Crank the heat up of course, if her boobs melt, it’s Kim. No wait, what? Now I’m confused.

Check out this behind the scenes look at the latest tests for the Red Bull Stratos mission. The testing took place at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds, where renowned athlete Felix Baumgartner began testing his exit stragety when leaving the capsule, and practiced balancing himself in a free fall. To complete this mission, Felix will have to climb at least 120,000 feet above the earth, to the very edge of Space, where he will attempt a stratospheric free fall jump – the longest in the history of man – and hopefully will become the first human to break the speed of sound with his own body.
Paranormal Activity was such a hit in theaters that director Tod Williams had to create a sequel. His message to fans of the first film is that “nothing can prepare you for what’s next”. Looks like I’m up for a few sleepless nights after this one. I won’t be able to ignore the creaky floorboards at the Mansion so easily.

Kelly Brook is currently hanging out in Barbados in a green bikini. What’s not to love?
Sometimes I find it hard to justify posting more pictures of Kelly Brook in a bikini, but she went to all the trouble of putting on that bikini, so I think the least we can do is stare at her and sexually objectify her.
Right about now is when my inbox fills up with angry emails from woman who don’t understand the word ‘joke’.
