11:40 pm - Special forces to use strap-on 'Batwings'
Elite special forces troops being dropped behind enemy lines on covert missions are to ditch their traditional parachutes in favour of strap-on stealth wings.
The lightweight carbon fibre mono-wings will allow them to jump from high altitudes and then glide 120 miles or more before landing - making them almost impossible to spot, as their aircraft can avoid flying anywhere near the target.
The technology was demonstrated in spectacular fashion three years ago when Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner - a pioneer of freefall gliding - famously 'flew' across the English Channel, leaping out of an aircraft 30,000ft above Dover and landing safely near Calais 12 minutes later.
Wearing an aerodynamic suit, and with a 6ft wide wing strapped to his back, he soared across the sea at 220mph, moving six feet forward through the air for every one foot he fell vertically - and opened his parachute 1,000ft above the ground before landing safely.

12:54 pm - Mary Todd Lincoln! Mary Todd Lincoln!
1) Do you like your birth-name? Why? I love it. If you didn't know what I looked like, I could pass as a suburban black man or British alt rocker and not as a fat Scotch-Russian alcoholic.
2) If you could change your name to anything else, what would it be? Damonowskivich. Kinda like Prince, but with less pussy control.
3)What names would you consider giving your children? Boy - Greg, Girl - Sluut (norwegian :))
4) If you had a band, what would you name it, and why? Well I do have a few bands (Off The Record, Däang), but if I could create a superband, it would be called Pirates of the Cuyahoga. I suck at creating band names, but much better at song titles.
5) Is there a name that you completely hate? Why? Not really. Unless the last name is Bush.
current mood: aggravated
