Wouldn't sky diving be the winner? (gravity assist for downhill count?) Or an astronaut on a spacewalk orbiting the earth. I think we're being a little pedantic here. Sure, maybe they should have said "world's fastest runner." I believe that most people would understand this if they read the article and not a one sentence title.

+ - Hello Brave New World! 3rd Party Tests confirm Rossi cold fusion device ->

chavez98 (2927899) writes "3rd party tests have confirmed that Andrea Rossi's E-Cat device does indeed produce anomalous heat energy at least one order of magnitude greater than conventional energy sources. There has been much debate as to the credibility of Mr. Rossi because he has a criminal background, but apparently he has been telling the truth about perhaps one of the greatest inventions in history of mankind."

Roughly 15 years ago, when I was 22, I was working in Chicago as a consultant making $30 an hour, not salaried. Being stuck in traffic for a few hours at a time was some of the most enjoyable times I had. I was getting paid the same either way. I'd roll down the windows, crank the music and sing out-loud to my heart's content. I put a smile on a few faces doing that. People thought I was crazy. If they only knew. :)
