-- Billionaire Richard Branson's next cutting-edge risk will expose him like never before: He'll have his legs shaved in public to dress up and serve as a flight attendant after losing a bet to a rival airline mogul.
The winner of a charity auction will pay at least $650,000 for the honor, according to Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia.

Reminds me of a story I read in a book about Southwest Airlines. Southwest had just rolled out Shamu One, the plane painted up like an Orca because they’re the official airline of Sea World. Bob Crandall, then the CEO of American Airlines, says to Herb Kelleher, Southwest’s CEO, “Nice plane, Herb. But what do you do with all the whale crap?” A few days later, Crandall gets a dry-iced package...a tub of chocolate yogurt and a Shamu spoon.
