Every once in a while, you hear a story that makes you say, "that can’t be real." This one falls into that category. Apparently, the CEO of Opera said if the newest version of their browser, version 8, was downloaded more than a million times in four days that he would swim across the Atlantic Ocean to America. Whether he intended this as a sign of jubilation and excitement or not, downloads surpassed the one million mark and he is now preparing for the swim. And you thought the days of silly corporate antics were gone!
