…Travis Pastrana rocked the hydrojump?

Travis Pastrana Hydrojump

Apparently, when you’re Travis Pastrana, conquering regular sports just gets boring after a while, and you need to invent new and unique sports to conquer just to keep yourself busy.

Travis’ latest stunt, called the hydrojump, had him skimming his Suzuki dirtbike at 70 miles per hour for 110 feet in five-foot-deep water, and then launching off of a floating FMX ramp.

…TheBlackApp is coming?

The Black App

TheBlackApp is calling itself “The first iPhone consumer network”, and since “space is limited”, they encourage you to register in advance for a launch date of June 5. (They also assure you that, no, this is not a stunt.)

There are three different levels of TheBlackApp (Black, Gold, and Silver) and it looks like the benefits will depend on which level you are a part of, so sign up now to reserve your spot.

…Your news van is slow?

Two news vans arrived at the same local drag strip in El Paso, Texas at the same time to cover a death at the strip due to legal drag racing, and then proceeded to do the obvious thing: Race their fully loaded news vans against each other.

Thankfully, no one is getting fired because of this stunt (since I think it’s awesome) but “disciplinary” action will be taken.

Remember: If you’re going to race your news van against the rival’s news van, make sure you ask the crowd not to put the video up onto YouTube first.

…Ken Block can fly?

Ken Block

I am now officially jealous of Ken Block.

After getting to jump his rally prepped Subaru WRX 171 feet for a new world record, he got to jump it over 70 feet in the snow for the cover of Snowboarder magazine.

The stunt was performed at New Zealand’s Snow Park Record, and used a specially prepared 55-foot ramp to put him alongside some very brave snowboarders during the jump.

I just hope Space Jam’s “I Believe I can Fly” played over his stereo the entire time.
