Some crazy guy is jumping out of a plane from 23 miles away....He's an Aussie, that explains it....anyway scientific exercise of course, and Red Bull has a website that you can see it live, it's happening at 857 am EDT, just a little while from now.

You do realize, LD, that shrimp is just an aquatic cockroach.

I love to eat shrimp. Yum! I like pretty much every critter that comes from the ocean. I even like clams, oysters, and mussels.

You're missing some good flavor there. Medium-rare is much better for red meat and red fish.

only rarely...if it's a good steakhouse, I may have a filet mignon cooked medium well. Fish...no. I've had sushi before but not something I go lusting after.

Years ago, I read a book by a doctor up in New York. He dealt with parasites. It's a real good read, he made it very entertaining talking about the things he pulled out of patients.

Make Mine Well Done :)

LD, can you remember the name of the book? I have a friend whose daughter is debilitated by what a doctor thinks is parasites but hasn't been able to identify which one(s). Even if she had to fly to a doctor who really knows his parasites, it might be worth it.

Two things.

Joe Kittinger holds the current record of 102,000 feet made in 1960. His equipment looked rather sparse compared to what this Red Bull guy is going to use. Kittinger has met with and supports this guy's jump attempt btw. http://www.damninteresting.com/free-fall-from-near-space/
