Why don't you do something useful with your money, you egomaniac?

Another billlionaire in space, how adorable.

Branson. I am interested and have the feed up in case it actually goes. I am just happy it is not that asshole Tom Cruise or the Bezo boys. In fact, when I read some time that TC was training to film in space for a movie I was just totally disgusted until I read that an actress from Russia (I think it was) was already ready to go. That would make that poor nutbag he-man creep the second.

I will watch if it goes, my feed is doing nothing so I assume it is weather related? It should be cool to watch anyway, of course unless it is Bezos or Cruise.

The feed I was watching is such bullshit. JFC, tee shirt ads and someone I never heard of is going to sing? Colbert, I understand why he would do this, but this is just the biggest bunch of horseshit I have ever seen.

Looking elsewhere or will watch the replay. Really sad.

Private space planes and rockets are the new megayachts.

When I walk across the room I'm traveling in space. Branson just went above the atmosphere.

I'm just being picky about how all of this is described.
