Max, i am glad you explained the story behind the goat thing. That was mystifying to me too when i first read it. Obviously, you live in an area where having someone with goats in a truck visiting your office looks, at least, not too out of ordinary. I picture the image and smile.

@caleb: I think I have goats in my future. My wife loves them...

I love them too -- especially when they are in a curry :-)

@Caleb: There was a video where Jeb's feet clipped an outcropping.

I think that if I were him I woudl have stopped after the video I showed in this blog -- doing this should be enough for any man in his lifetime :-)

There was a video where Jeb's feet clipped an outcropping. It did not end well, though he did survive. 

Here's the video

@Garcia: I've been watching the wingsuit video and this is really amazing!


It really is amazing -- also he came very VERY close to wiping out there -- he really did almost die -- if he'd hit the ground at the top of the caynon going at that speed.... I daren't think what the result would have looked like.

He is a braver man than me for sure!!!

@kfield: So who was the guy with the goats?


Why? You want me to introduce you? LOL

It's my inventor friend -- and fellow member of All Programmable Planet -- Brian LaGrave. Brian and his family live about 40 miles away in the country. He used to come into Huntsville once a month with his two young sons to get their hair cut, and they woudl stop by here for a coffee and a chat (well, the kids had water). He was returning from a business trip and on the way back he'd bought a couple of goats (who amongst us hasn't been sweapt away by an impulse buy :-)

@junko: Now I am running to a corner store to get oreos!


It's funny how you may not be hungry and you aren't thinking of them -- yet as soon as you see this you think (a) that's a great way to teach kids and (b) I'd love an Oreo or three :-)

I think they just "feel it". Not a whole lot of calculation is going on mid-flight.

 

I have an oculus rift (vr headset) and there is a simulator for this.  That will be close enough for me!
