Alan Eustace jump from 135,000 ft on fri and broke the world record set by Baumgardner who jumped from 128,000 ft. Can't even begin to imagine what kind of rush that must have been. He was in free fall for over 4 min and was traveling at over 800 mph. People on the ground heard the sonic boom.

Impressive.

"Can't even begin to imagine what kind of rush that must have been" You're right. You can't even possibly imagine it. No surprise, since you've never done anything in your life that would've ever grown your "mind" so's to do so....And there folks, lies the difference in "liberals" versus actually alive people. At least try some extensive skydiving Tree, and then some better, if only by way of still "imagined" visions might come to you..."imagine" being the key word and watermark of "liberals"...Why not actually DO something for a change? ;)
 
"For $75,000, adventurers can duplicate the experience inside a "luxury capsule" complete with bar, toilet and internet access." Just sayin'.....Personally?...It'd be a great view, but not worth that much coin, and I rather prefer the thicker "flying" air closer to the surface to play in.

You got that right.  The vitriol and animus that he writes with are disturbing.
 
Aside from that have you noticed the wording of the posts them selves?  I think he sites at his desk with a thesaurus and a scrabble board.  He seems to be trying to impress people with what he thinks are advanced writing skills.  His posts are not appropriate for a dialogue format.  There are times when he gets in a bit over his head and uses words that are not correct or a bit out of order.  His rants are definitely wordy and flamboyant but they just seem lacking.  He like to insult but rarely addresses a point or contributes anything of substance to a conversation.  He is a wordier version of La La.

Heck of a view at 25 miles.

I must admit to a bit of jealousy for guys like Eustace and Cameron.  Having the resources to dedicate to these explorations.  I love flying but I cant do the ocean thing.  Going into a sub is not for me (a bit clausterphobic) and the idea of going into that cigar tube that Cameron built and then going down 7 miles (I think I read that the outer pain of glass broke on the way down) just makes my skin a bit clammy.  More power to him though, watching his interview you know he gets off on stuff like this.  He was giddy as a kid in a candy store.

Wait! They have something, everyone else does not?
Blasphemy! We need to take their sh!t from them and give it to someone else!

You have an uncanny ability to miss an obvious point.
