    Re: Felix Baumgartner is the Freaking Man

    There was a Russian skydiver who jumped from above the point I spoke of where the boilijg point is only 98 degrees or so. As he exited his capsule he hit his head and put a hairline crack in his visor.

    He was DOA.

    Not sure what would scare me worse- the ebullism (gas bubbles form beneath the skin and you swell up like a bodybuilder) or the fact that if he jumps a little too right or left footed he'll start to spin and most likely his brain will detach from his spinal column.

    There is a chance he doesn't make it today- they aren't even sure the suit can withstand a sonic boom.

    690 MPH straight down for a little while.
