    That was by far the most impressive thing I've ever seen. (other than Julie's tits when I was 12). I saw an interview with Elon yesterday. I believe he is so successful because he is realistic about what he does. In the interview, he said he felt there was a 35%-55% chance of success. It was almost 100% perfect other than losing the one booster, but seeing the other two land perfectly AND in unison was absolutely amazing. It would seem he isn't boastful and lives in a world of reality. I am really impressed with the guy. A very close second to Julie, of course I haven't seen her in over 65 years, and those sweater puppies may be hanging so low they are now puppy slippers.

    Truly Impressive! Someone else mentioned that as a kid they watched the old 50's-60's Sci-Fi movies where the rockets landed on their tails. What was once science fiction has become science!

    I guess it just goes to show you, if you write books, even total fantasies, people will take them to heart.
    I want to live in a world that's more like Star Trek, and less like Atlas Shrugged.

    A real test for the Falcon Heavy would be to put trump-you-asshole in the car, without a helmet, with a jettison trigger as it nears the sun.

    Yes! Like 1984, Atlas Shrugged is not an instruction manual!
