I rarely rave about non-mechanical Lego stuff, but this is impressive.

On August 16, 1960 [Joseph Kittinger] made the final jump from the Excelsior III at 102,800 feet (31,330 m). Towing a small drogue chute for stabilization, he fell for 4 minutes and 36 seconds reaching a maximum speed of 714 mph (1,150 km/h) before opening his parachute at 18,000 feet (5,500 m). Pressurization for his right glove malfunctioned during the ascent, causing his hand to swell. He set records for highest balloon ascent, highest parachute jump, longest drogue-fall (14 min) and fastest speed by a man through the atmosphere.

Have your Portal cake and eat it too

Okay, I realize I'm late to the Portal game. But man is it a blast. Completely new twist. I haven't finished a game end to end in one sitting since I was 10.

Be sure to watch the official promo at The Orange Box

Here's the cake!
