Yay Flexagons!

So, for those of you who didn't know, October is flexagon month.  In honor of this obscure celebration, here is a great video that shows how wonderful flexagons can be.  I also recommend you follow this video up with part 2 and the safety guide.  Links are provided at the end of each video, so you should have no trouble finding them.

Redbull Stratos Jump

I know I'm behind on sharing this.  I've already seen it, but I figured I'd make the time to post it here.  I would have done so already, but it's been a crazy week.

Jumping from the edge of space = AWESOME!

These bets often use scientific principles, while others simply use plain trickery.  Still, either is useful if there's money on the line!
