Alright. I'm ready. Bring it on!



Tuck those ears in before you jump. They'll burn off upon re-entry.

Then you'll just look like a pissed off Guinea Pig.

You're never too old to fall, my friend.


But that's my problem!


I've got the falling part down pat. It's always the sudden stops that have done me in.

Imagine being the last record holder.
If I remember correctly he was wearing a space suit and three parachutes...to be deployed in stages. Like rocket boosters

2 malfunctions

3 Stolen Air, from 75 to 100 feet up.

1 very hard landing in a CrashHawk.

Also, Quite a few car wrecks not to mention being blown up twice.

I count myself lucky to get vertical in the morning and thank God every day that I do. My back and knees are toast.

But I ain't letting it stop me, I just do things slower these days. And not so reckless either.


I'm finding that I heal slower as I get older.

Mama, I will have to call you a liar. With the proper training, I bet you would do it.

I hear ya, bro.
I flat lined after running a marathon which resulted in a second collapsed lung.

I just think it would be great.

Listen to Mama...Do you really think that I would go up into
space and then jump? You can't even get me on a roller coaster
and you think with proper training I will jump from a space ship

After a few shots of tequila most people will do anything. And I do mean stupid things as well. After all, it's all in fun ain't it?

Just don't catch it on video or say... "Hey Y'all! Watch this!"

Yup...Tequila and common sense do not mingle well in the same bottle.

And now I'm Married...


Peace

I just don't see the point in jumping out of a perfectly good pressurized capsule

Id just like to see what he seen before he jumped lol. It would have been beautiful. When you think about it thought if you jump from that height and like 10 thousand feet you still reach the same speed (maximum velocity) after which you cant gain any more speed so whether you're jumping from space or 10 thousand feet you're going to be going the same speed when falling or in worst case scenario, when hitting the ground.

As long as they do it over an unpopulated area. I don't need a two hundred pound lawn dart hitting my house at 120 miles an hour.

Actually, you'll fall faster from space because less to no atmosphere means less drag. You actually slow upon entering the Atmosphere, that'll be were you encounter terminal velocity.

Watch the Felix Baumgarter video. It has his speed and altitude in the corner and you can see the effect.

hahaha well i've jumped at 14,000 feet with an apparent fear of heights and open spaces... so wtf difference is 120,000 gonna make?

So long as i'm properly trained because i don't see tandem space dives coming anytime soon.

Just hop in the capsule - ignore everything around you for the journey up there... and don't think about it until it's too late to turn back.

Fear is something we create ourselves given the time to dwell on it.

Get your thinking out of the way now... and then go full speed ahead, guns blazing into the action
