Man poo-poos Quebec ski resort
Sometimes simple theft isn't enough. Sometimes you have to leave a statement. Or at least such was the rational of a Quebec man who robbed Edelweiss Ski Resort over the weekend and then proceeded to leave a rather stinky homemade calling card with administration.

Warplane sends ski jump
Texas isn't the only one hitting ski jumps these days, as earlier this week an advanced warplane practiced hitting a money booter at Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, Maryland.

While it may be lacking in the pop department, the new F-35B is rumored to feature some serious air-time.
Wow, good thing I'm not getting paid for airplane jokes, yeesh.
