OH THANK GOD FELIX FINALLY DID THE RED BULL STRATOS JUMP AND HE LANDED AND IS FINE AND NOW WE CAN ALL STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT. Where were you when you watched Felix Baumgartner break this terrifying world record for no reason, when he should’ve been at home in bed, staying safe? I was not able to watch it live, but I did get an AP alert when he did the jump and then, what seemed like HOURS later, an AP alert when he landed safely. So scary. If I were his family I’d still just be so mad at him. “HOW DARE YOU RISK YOUR LIFE IN THE NAME OF RED BULL.” But I’m glad we can now all sit back and watch a nicely cut video about it, still terrified even though we know he makes it and even though I guess he wasn’t as in space as it looks. (Neil deGrasse Tyson — always a buzzkill.)

Well done, Felix Baumgartner. Please don’t try anything like this again.

  1. I love this fake twitter account that has people up in a rage! Yeah – man, you lazy fucks, you didn’t jump 20 miles out of space today! You’re a loser – I bet you’re not even a billionaire!

  2. I’m seeing it for the first time now, but I already saw the cat version: http://weknowmemes.com/2012/10/cat-space-jump-gif/

  3. “Neil deGrasse Tyson — always a buzzkill.” – Bill O’Reilly, on the subject of where the sun goes at night, among other things.

  4. Next time I want to see him to the skyaking version.

  5. Don’t be so hard on him, Kelly; he didn’t want to jump, but Kriss Kross made him.

  6. should have done a flip

  7. Am I the only one who found this amazingly incredible, and how awesome are the implications that humans can travel *at supersonic speeds*?!

  8. I love the fake control room. Hahahahahahaha. Nice.
