U2, not the band

[Thanks to Ian]

Footage of the plane which goes so high it's virtually a spaceship.

Good shot!

Most ironic sound bite for 2011 so far: if only everybody took a trip in a US hi-fli spy plane then war and religious strife would end. Now you know why back in the day they gave the crew suicide tablets, just to stop them spewing new age mush if they were shot down over enemy territory.

Wow! What a LUCKY Turd! I got all choked up going on that trip w/him! I STILL get that way, every time I get the chance to take a plane ride, as well, but...this one: WHOA! AMAZING! LOVED that! Thanks Ian and Eo!

"You must be an out-of-work, lazy slob!"

An entirely accurate description (and one of the less vituperative allegations made against me this week) but based on flawed seasoning. When you get to big school, teacher will explain about time zones. My guess is that if you are able to get your brain around the concept it's going rock your world. World Wide Web: the clue is in the name!
