If I did tell you of two "2 sets of plans, ALL manuals, building licence, most component parts done, all the fibreglass bits purchased, and lots of assorted nuts bolts, and rivets. NZ$5000 for the lot." currently sitting in NZ you might do something rash which would put your marriage at risk.

Default Shuttle Pictures

I'm guessing these shots are making the internet rounds but, for those that haven't had a chance, what great shots of the shuttle from the space station. Or is that a test flight of a new canard jet?

The altitude of the camera is wayyyy too low to be the space station unless it was taken with the station almost at the horizon and a hell of a zoom lense.

Its so way cool. [long vacant unbelieving stare, accompanied by silence] Ok, Ok. I know I kind of pushed it getting you to agree on the Cozy...but you gotta see this guys video. Its safe. I'd be wearing a helmet just like Wiley Coyote.....

My only problem is that she wouldn't let me have one unless she could have one too.

That has got to be one of the coolest, if not THE coolest, thing I have ever seen. After I was able to close my hanging jaw of disbelief, I couldn't wipe off the big ol' goofy grin.

Dear Santa,

In addition to your list of naughty little girls that I asked for, please bring me a jet-man pack. I have been VERY good this year.

Christopher......the one in Texas

P.S. I will leave the milk and cookies by the fireplace.

Sorry, no video for this one, but for those that need "more power" then this baby might be the one. Could be a pretty big flash on the crash...

OK, this is my last one, I promise...

Might be a little cheaper, but that might depend on the Dr bill.
