This Google Exec Broke Felix Baumgartner’s Record With The Highest Altitude Jump Of All Time!

Filed under: InspirationTech Talk

Talk about falling with style!

Google once again proved its dominion over planet Earth as one of its execs, Alan Eustace, took a balloon near to the very tippy top of the stratosphere Friday.

The senior vice president at Google reached an altitude of over 25 miles, and as he descended, he reached speeds that maxed out at 822 miles per hour, thus breaking the sound barrier.

Two years ago Felix Baumgartner set the world altitude record reaching a height of 128,100 feet on October 14th, 2012.

Alan's height? Roughly 135,890 feet. He returned to earth 15 minutes after he began his descent 70 miles away from his launch point.

Congrats, Alan!

Ch-ch-check out his wild ride (below)!!!

No Drugs Or Alcohol Found In Tracy Morgan's System

Filed under: DrugsTracy MorganHealthAlcohol

Tracy Morgan collapse

Tracy Morgan fell unconcious shortly after attending an awards ceremony at the Sundance Film Festival and it's kinda hard to NOT think drugs or alcohol were involved.

Well, if that thought crossed your mind after hearing the news, you'd actually be wrong! The actors rep claims he collapsed "from a combination of exhaustion and altitude…any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false."

A spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center is backing up that claim too and said no drugs or alcohol was found in Tracy’s system upon medical evaluation.

Eyewitness accounts, however, allege that "during the dinner Morgan seemed out of control, yelling and falling onto the ground." While those could be signs on intoxication, they could also just be signs of Tracy Morgan being Tracy Morgan. Ha!

Either way, we hope Tracy feels better soon and can enjoy the rest of the festival.
