When Major League Baseball announced its All-Star rosters, there was the usual brief outburst of indignation about how certain players got left off of the Midsummer Classic squads.

Playing Chicken with a Wind Turbine

Vimeo user aaron_gx flew through the spinning blades of a wind farm. With a remote-control plane, of course.

I would never allow such a thing to happen on [...]
