    Zero-G over Vegas: Are you HEXperienced ?

    I kept 6 trusted serving men, they taught me all I knew.
    There names were what and where and why and how and when and who.

    Me too - I had to put up with them rubbing it in.

    So our 2 winners were out there with us - Daniel and Ken - it was ace - and I hope they had a great time.

    The last guy in the video is Ken.... he was more than insane!

    Re: Zero-G over Vegas: Are you HEXperienced ?

    Congrats to the winners ... that Zero G malarkey is something I've always wanted to try so I'm pretty envious of you guys. I wonder if something like that is offered in the UK?
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    As far as I am aware, there are options in:-
    - Vegas
    - Over the Caribbean
    - Russia

    So for all us non-winners in the UK, it is a case of...

    I kept 6 trusted serving men, they taught me all I knew.

    I think the Vomit Comet you were riding in travels around the US. I know I've seen it on the ramp in Titusville.
    It's not something which would be permitted by the Campaign Against Aviation (CAA) in the UK.
    It looks like a great experience!

    No wonder some of my students are scared of me. I come across kind of... intense. ROFL!

    Well done Eren! Beautiful editing. I can't wait to see the next installment.

    Re: Zero-G over Vegas: Are you HEXperienced ?

    @Stabby:
    When the pilot announces "feet down, pulling up" to let you know that gravity is 'coming back' (sure it was there all along really), then you're supposed to position yourself so that you "land safely on your feet". HA! No chance ... how can you when hanging in the air with nothing to grab on to and no idea where down is anyway?

    The odd thing is, even when I totally lost control and drifted, bounced and hopelessly tumbled into the other group of hopeless wannabe astronuts at the back of the plane, there were no injuries, and I came away unbruised. Though I can't guarantee the other people were OK!

    It helps if you land on the "large" chick when gravity comes on suddenly.
