The earth is home to 8 billion human beings. Of those 8 billion peeps, Usain Bolt can move from one place to another on the power of his own two feet the fastest. The fastest man in the world. Imagine that title. Dude must get rug burn on his balls every time he walks.

Anyhoo, the world record holder in the 100, 200, and 4 × 100, found himself in an Airbus Zero-G plane above France on Wednesday. He raced French astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy and designer Octave de Gaulle and surprise, surprise: he won!


When you ate four weed gummies and are trying to hold it together at a work function:

The event was in sponsorship with G.H. Mumm Champagne, so the eight-time Olympic gold medalist was awarded with a parting gift before exiting the zero-gravity airbus.

Some guys have all the luck.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
