I liked this video as well:

Life on the Edge - Felix Baumgartner


He talks about goal-setting and constantly reaching for the next thing.  I plan to use this with my students as we talk about those issues in a school context.

That was James May, AKA Captain Slow from the British Top Gear. To keep it beer related, he has done some advertising for Fullers.

John Keeling, head brewer, is behind the bar in the tasting room.

When he said the visor was fogging/frosting up, was I the only one who thought they should have watched the first Ironman movie closer?

Friends of mine said the balloon was visible from our town on the way up, but I was busy brewing a hefeweizen in the garage and never went out to look.  A friend posted a picture he took from his little airplane pretty close to the balloon.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico
