nobody else watching felix baumgartner?

the guy is about to be the first skydiver to break the sound barrier by jumping from the edge of space.  i'm watching it live now on yahoo.  i'm surprised there are no threads about it already.

here's the link to watch it live:

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
--Hunter S. Thompson

It never happened. It's a conspiracy just like the moon landings. Obama is trying to make people forget that he was born in Toronto.

I thought it interesting,

I thought it interesting, but I didn't watch it. I'd rather experience that kind of thing first hand. Sticking out tongue
