That's ridiculous for anyone who has a grip on physics.
I watched it to the end, because I knew it HAD to end soon.

It was a pretidiciable ending.

I'm sorry to spoil the ending for those who haven't seen it, but I feel better having saved you almost two hours of waiting to see the bastard smacked with his demise. Maybe my two hours won't have been spent in vain.
SOOO Can we talk about Gravity then. How come Sandy couldn't pull George back to the ship? It wasn't spinning so no centrifugal force. He didn't weigh 200 lbs in space.

Jump overboard and have your wife/gf/significant other/non musclebound female pull you fully clothed, back aboard under sail at hull speed, then get back to me.
If you survive, you will know the answer.

(One small hint: dynamic frictional drag )

617 fiat currencies have gone to zero since 1500. Since that time the average life of a fiat currency is 40 years! I dont see how cryptos are better?

Governments throughout history have always over printed the money supply resulting in its value going to zero. Bitcoin claims to have a limit of 21 million coins BUT theres already over 600 crypto currencies out there.....i just dont know.

My girlfriend's son asked me today" have you bought any bitcoin yet?" ...it reminds me of" when the local cabbie gives you stock tips then you know its time to get out of the market"

Im not against it, i just dont get it.

There's some well healed money guys into it as well as others that arent, pretty confusing really.
