Buzzed: Boozing with @Sweden

In Buzzed, we take a look at three things that trended over the weekend while you were away from your keyboard getting buzzed.

On YouTube
On Friday night, former and present curators of the citizen-powered @Sweden Twitter account met up and drank all the Absolut Vodka they could. Sonja (remember her?) and last week’s @Sweden voice, Christian, recorded an awesomely drunk—and very bizarre—video together.

On Twitter
Everyone’s favorite actor and former Apple spokesman Justin Long joined Twitter on Sunday after allegedly being prodded by Shiloh Jolie-Pitt to join the website. So far, his Twitter stream has been filled with pictures and terribly cute jokes that are only funny because Long said them.

On Tumblr
Austrian daredevil “Fearless” Felix Baumgartner successfully jumped from space on Sunday. He rose to the edge of Earth’s atmosphere and jumped from a height of more than 128,000 feet—or 24 miles—and became the first person to break the sound barrier without mechanical assistance or shelter. The epic event was broadcast live on YouTube and Discovery channel, but if the three-hour event was too long for you, here’s a GIF of him jumping in just seconds.
