MOM ARRESTED FOR INKING DAUGHTER ... Once in a while I see a story like this, and it makes me have to call a woman a "broad," because there's not really any other word to sufficiently describe her. She's a 30-year-old mom of an 11-year-old girl. Mother gave daughter her very own tatto: www.DailyMail.co.uk/news/article-2214324/Mother-arrested-giving-11-year-old-daughter-heart-shaped-tattoo.html?ito=feeds-newsxml
WORLD RECORD FREEFALL TOMORROW ... I've been following the story of Felix Baumgartner all weekend, and if you're unaware of what this guy's all about, here's a quuick rundown. He's a 36-year-old Austrian guy who's a lifelong "Extreme Athlete,' "Thrillseeker," "Adrenaline Junkie," and "Stuntman," who will attempt a 36 kilometre freefall over Roswell, NM, tomorrow. He'll literally be "dropping in" from the edge the Earth's atmosphere. It's the Red Bull Stratos Project, and if Felix is successful, he'll have four new World Records! Jump into all the details & technology behind this incredible stunt here: www.RedBullStratos.com
CANADA POST AVOIDS STRIKE ... Whew! I was beginning to get a little nervous when I found out that there could've been a mail strike in Canada this Fall. But apparently we'll be fine, as Canada Post and its union have reached an agreement. Seriously, does anyone really get any REAL MAIL, other than bills these days?!
