Surprisingly the majority of people I know don't have any desire to go into space. Good for Bill, I'd do in a heart beat if I could.

I want to hear him do Bob Dylan and Shat the Bed.

"Lay.........Lady..........Lay.......... Lay..........Across........My........Big.........Brass..........Bed......."
Hey now, that used to be one of my big Karaoke numbers.

My kids got a Karaoke machine for Christmas last year that has Bluetooth built-in. I've got a Youtube playlist of songs that I've been practicing for lake parties when the pandemic is over with.

It's funny cause Rocketman happens to be in my range and I can even hit the high notes pretty good.

I may have to check on that one for the heck of it. (though I don't normally mumble when I sing like Dylan and the slide guitar music or whatever that is always depresses me)

Shatner was very emotional. Good thing he never cried as captain of the USS Enterprise. And $250,000 sounds fair for a short trip into space. Being way up there is kinda like a cat caught in a tree hoping it can get back down. Not a good place to have a panic attack, for sure.

I would hope a second party would be involved to play catcher. In a zero gravity environment and one of you guys going solo as per usual, everything would turn South upon reentry when your Skittles don't float anymore. That module would light up like a Christmas tree if you hit it with a black light.

This thread took a turn for the worse fast. Everyone knows sheep herders wear tall boots so they can wedge the sheep's hind legs in them so they stay put. I would imagine something similar could be worked out in zero G.
