RIP Roy Brown, the man behind the Edsel

Brown, a leading car designer with Ford Motors, has died at the age of 96. He was best known for the 1957 Edsel, a vehicle that has gone down in history as one of the auto industry’s biggest flop.

The Canadian-born designer remained unrepentant about his creation and drove an Edsel until almost the end of his life.

Brown later had success with the Ford Cortina.

The astronaut from next door: Canadian Chris Hadfield is quickly becoming the biggest name in space travel
Bread is a bad idea in space. Bread makes for crumbs and crumbs make for a mess in zero gravity, floating this way and that, and so a Canadian astronaut hankering for a peanut butter and honey sandwich will leave the Wonder behind for us earthbound slobs and reach instead for a fresh vacuum-sealed flour tortilla.

“A tortilla can be good for 18 months,” Chris Hadfield explains in a scene from “Chris Hadfield’s Space Kitchen,” the latest video from our man among the stars detailing everyday life aboard the International Space Station.

The 53-year-old makes peanut butter and honey sandwiches. In other dispatches, he has brushed his teeth, demonstrated how to clean up a water spill, bubble by bubble, by plucking the distended orbs from mid-air, jammed with Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, put on a goofy outfit to celebrate Mardi Gras, swapped tweets with William (Captain Kirk) Shatner, dropped a puck from the heavens on Hockey Night in Canada, fixed some space station gizmo of great scientific importance while sending out a daily stream of majestic photographs of the Earth below — the Sahara, the Australian Outback, the blinding lights of Beijing — via Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Tumblr.

This is why I love YouTube … So many videos to put a smile on your face. This kid needs to score a foul shot to get his school the day off for the Superbowl …
