Meet Mr. Badass July 2007

Flight nurse Chris Fogg was transporting a patient on June 27th when the plane window exploded. The twin-engine piper turboprop was cruising at 20,000 feet at the time! Fogg was sucked halfway out the window, with only his legs and one arm inside the plane. He managed to hold one while the pilot dived to a lower altitude to stabilize the cabin pressure, then pulled himself back into the plane. Uninjured, Fogg flew again the next day.

Entirely ripped from Neatorama.

IRONY ALERT! WHOOP! WHOOP!

After angering Russia earlier this year with criticism that it was using its energy reserves as a political weapon, the administration has tried to avoid provoking Russia as Washington seeks the Kremlin’s cooperation in confronting Iran.

Regardless, Cheney bitched and moaned anyway.

He said Russia has a choice to make when it comes to reform, and said that in many areas, “from religion and the news media to advocacy groups and political parties, the government has unfairly and improperly restricted the rights of the people.” 

Other actions “have been counterproductive and could begin to affect relations with other countries,” Cheney said, mentioning energy and border issues.

“No legitimate interest is served when oil and gas become tools of intimidation or blackmail, either by supply manipulation or attempts to monopolize transportation,” he said.

“And no one can justify actions that undermine the territorial integrity of a neighbor, or interfere with democratic movements.”

I just threw up in my mouth.
