I am bored and the blog needed an update. Just put this up for the fuck of it. There is a reason why the label for this one is Rambling / Revelations and NOT Think About It.
So all NASA had to do, to ensure the safe return (to earth) of its astronauts was:
- Ejector seats
- 34 point Check List
- Include a sky diving crash course in astronaut training
- Instructions on the ejector button reading 'Keep your head down and jump'.
In all honesty, I don't see the point (of NASA's space missions or of Felix's jump). With all these people flooding Twitter, the media coverage – there must be something about it (*scratches head… I don't see it, but – there must be something there, right?) I am sure my blog post doesn't matter (to Felix or to anyone else). As I mentioned earlier – I am bored.
The guy was travelling faster than sound – well, if he landed SPLAT on the floor and we could still hear him talking – then PERHAPS I wouldn't contest the claim (nah. Actually I would suggest that there was a lag in the network).
You know what would be really nice? The footage of this jump being used in the next advertisement for Sprite. Voice-over while the Space Jump footage is being played - "This is BULL shit! <Pause> Sprite… Bujhaaye only pyaas. Baaki sab bakwaas".
