It’s been too long.

It has been far too long since I’ve made a blog post.  The biggest problem I face is what to post about?  Do I want to be all political and write something about last night’s presidential debate?  Probably not.  Who wants to hear what I, a Canadian, thinks about American politics?

Perhaps I should write about Canadian politics, then?  I don’t think so, either.  I like politics.  I like Canadian politics.  But, my interest in it has more to do with understanding Rick Mercer’s rants than to actually have an informed opinion that I want to share.  The key to that is the “that I want to share” part.

So, what else is there?  Oh, the Red Bull Stratos project!  I can talk about that!

It made some VERY interesting footage and pictures.  The information they got from this experiment will certainly aid in the safety of the next generation of manned space flight.

But, what I found most interesting was the Red Bull part of the project.  I would think that a better sponsor should have been something like Lockheed Martin Space or NASA or something like that.  But, Red Bull?  I guess…

But, while watching Baumgartner tumbling end over end as he plummeted back to Earth, all I could think of was “I guess the Red Bull wings are held together by bees wax, so don’t get too close to the Sun”.  They should have called this the Icarus Project, if you ask me:)

    I’ll bet Baumgartner’s suit was less than pristine after all that flat spinning… -given all the Red Bull he must have had in him I mean!

    Maybe he should have considered Molly Maid or Martinizing Dry Cleaners for sponsors? 🙂

    Love it E.G.!
