You Can Go 20 Miles Above The Earth In A Balloon — But Can You Afford It! Find Out How Expensive It Is To Be A Daredevil!

| Filed under: Space!TravelViral: News

no title

Have you ever wanted to ride in a balloon about twenty miles above the Earth, looking down on all of us from above?!

As crazy as that sounds, you can actually do that with a new company called World View. They are offering customers the opportunity to do a little space tourism — but only if you have $75,000 for it.

Basically, here's what they're offering:the company has created a high-altitude balloon to carry passengers a whopping 20 miles above the Earth. They say that allows you to see 99% of the Earth's atmosphere!

The craft holds six passengers, plus the two crew member who need to, ya know, fly the balloon up and down and out into space and back… And apparently, it takes about six hours to complete the flight, with the balloon rising to, yes, more than 100,000 feet off of the surface of the Earth!

But you know what?! If you've got the money to fork out, and a little bit of a crazy side, why not?! After all, it is pretty AH-mazing that traveling nowadays doesn't necessarily mean staying on the planet to do it!!!

What do U think? Crazy idea that you'd never consider, or are you up in space the moment you get an extra $75,000?!

This Guy Changed His Name Because It Was Cheaper Than Changing His Plane Ticket!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersTravelViral: News

A student changed his last name to avoid a crazy airline fee!

What the what??

Adam Armstrong changed his name to dodge an airline fee.

Yes, you read that right. But, he has a pretty good reason. The student had planned a vacation with his girlfriend, but when her dad booked the tickets, he accidentally reserved Adam's ticket under the name "Adam West".

Ryanair clearly didn't see it as a simple mistake, since they decided to charge the student a fee worth about $336 to change the information!

Holy cow!

But, the 19-year-old wasn't about to accept defeat.

He changed his last name to "West" through a deed poll and ordered a new passport, so his ticket would match his identification.

The new moniker cost Adam about half the amount of the fee, so he managed to save a pretty penny, he just couldn't save his old name.

How could flying in a crop top sweater possible be comfortable?

Regardless of what she's wearing, the real focus of the above pic should really be Jennifer Lopez's new hair!

J.Lo's had long wavy locks for as long as we can remember, but we're not hating her shorter 'do.

The 45-year-old was spotted departing from LAX on Tuesday, brushing her bangs out of her face to bring attention to the change.

Jen may be hiding behind her over-sized sunglasses and black leather handbag, but we can tell she looks fierce.

We wonder how her trademarked sheer gowns are going to look with more neckline to work with?

Are U a fan of J.Lo's new hairstyle??

Amal Clooney Looks Better Than The Tomorrowland Ratings At The Tokyo Premiere! George Was There Too!

This crazy thing is happening where George Clooney's movies are underperforming, and everyone is more eager to see his wife Amal on the red carpet than him!

But despite all of that, the 54-year-old actor couldn't have looked happier at the Tokyo premiere for Tomorrowland on Monday.

The beautiful barrister on his arm wore a silky yellow gown making her look like a modern day Belle, while Mr. Clooney smiled handsomely in his suit.

Sadly, the opening box office numbers for Tomorrowland, however, didn't look quite as good as the couple. The flick was expected to bring in $40 million over the first three days or the holiday weekend, but it topped off at $32.2 million. But even though it underperformed, Tomorrowland was still at the top of the box office with Pitch Perfect 2 coming in next at $30.3 million. Disney expects to make some money on their $180 million investment though, because it will be the only PG-rated film in theaters during May.

No matter what happens with Georgie's future films, and films about the future, we have a feeling this couple will be a-okay.
