Time will tell. Looks like he still has a long way to go. At least another hour.

I have never had the urge to jump out of a perfectly good plane to put my trust in a piece of cloth. 'Nuff said.

I have never been in any military aircraft that was "perfectly good".

my dad survived many missions flying c-130's. In spite of how less than perfect they were, including one memorable cockpit fire in-flight, he would never consider jumping.

I had a number of slamming hard landings in C-130s that left me wishing I had jumped. I only jumped from a C-130 maybe half a dozen times.

I have been in two military aircraft, one was a militarised version of a commercial airliner my reserve unit took on a weekend drill. The other was a "Huey" (I think) which took me and a Marine Sargeant suffering from anhydrous heat exhaustion on a fast trip to a battalion aid station. Neither crashed before or on landing, thus meeting my definition of a perfectly good aircraft.

Maybe it's British slang for ridding DiCaprio's willy?

Well, the guy definitely broke the record for having the biggest pair of brass balls in the world.....

woodsy
2012-10-16, 09:49
Brass balls are heavy, no wonder he broke the speed of sound.

Hog On Ice
2012-10-16, 10:04
I wonder if when he dropped below the speed of sound if all the clanging caught up with him

MonkeyBoy
2012-10-16, 11:13
No, but due to the extremely cold temperatures, there was a moderate amount of turtle effect occurring.

That, and the fact that the ground was rushing up to great him while spinning wildly out of control, tend to make that happen.

Cuffs
2012-10-16, 11:30
The way I see the math, he broke the sound barrier nearer to 700 mph at that elevation than the 741 mph at sea level.

Roots
2012-10-16, 13:20
The way I see it, he's still a fucking idiot!

Maybe he has vodka in his red bull.
