    You might remember the day, about two years ago, when daredevil Felix Baumgartner broke the world record for highest-altitude parachute jump, having plummeted to Earth from a staggering 127,852 feet up in the air.

    The Big Lebowski is one of the most beloved cult films of all time, but for whatever reason it didn’t get a mainstream pinball machine version back when it came out.
