September 3, 2012

A grandson of the creator of the Red Bull energy drink is suspected of driving the charcoal Ferrari that struck and killed a policeman and then dragged the officer’s body down a Bangkok street in an early-morning, hit-and-run accident, police said Monday.

Police took Vorayuth Yoovidhya, believed to be in his late 20s, for questioning Monday after tracing oil streaks for several blocks to his family’s gated estate in a wealthy neighborhood of the Thai capital. The family also co-owns a company that is a sole authorized importer of Ferrari cars in Thailand.

Red Bull derived from natural spring water mixed with liquid oxygen fuel of NASA booster rockets. Second best thing to Chuck Norris urine..

Red Bull Stratos On Schedule, Its In The Can

July 13, 2010

A skydiver is making progress with plans to leap from near the edge of space in a dive that would break world records and the sound barrier.

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner is a step closer to attempting the feat after a series of recent high-altitude test jumps. He plans to make his ambitious jump attempt later this year.

Starting in the stratosphere at 120,000 feet above the ground, Baumgartner will leap from a capsule suspended by a helium balloon near the boundary of space.

Sponsored by the energy drink company Red Bull, Baumgartner’s mission — called Red Bull Stratos — seeks to extend the “safety zone” of human atmospheric bailout last set in 1960 by diver Joe Kittinger. This limit defines the uppermost altitude a human being can safely jump from.

A team of aeronautics experts recently led Baumgartner through a week of testing meant to illuminate any possible weaknesses in his equipment and to familiarize him with the skills needed to navigate the conditions expected to assail him as soon as he opens his vessel door.

“My biggest concern is that dangerous part of the project which we just haven’t thought of,” Baumgartner  said in a statement. “We try to think of every contingency, but there’s always going to be something that you would never imagine could happen. And that might kill you.”

I am still a little concerned about my chase car dudes.
