Well, It's Different
The world is full of weird and wonderful things. If it weren't, we wouldn't have anything to write about. Check out your h2g2 Front Page – there's sure to be something weird and wonderful on it, even without the Post. But, boy, do we add to the wonder. Just check this week's offerings out: we've got poems, and cartoons, and wildlife, and church architecture, and fiction, and. . . well, you know the drill. Read, comment, get inspired, go do some researching and writing of your own. Wherever you go, there you are. We're counting on you to tell us about it.
Wow. Talk about appropriate. As we go to press, we – and the rest of the twittering world – stand agog and agape, as Austrian Felix Baumgartner has now set a new world's record for highest balloon flight. He's also proven that it is possible for a human being to free-fall faster than the speed of sound, and live to tell about it. We were watching along with everyone else as he stepped out of his capsule into empty air. About ten minutes later (four-and-a-half of them in freefall), he landed on terra firma. On his feet, no less. How's that for weird and wonderful? We'd show you the pictures, but it wasn't NASA, this time. Felix has our best wishes.
