Felix Baumgartner's freefall

  I made history...he did tweet this...he jumped from about 24 miles above the ground....the most amazing thing was that after the great freefall he was completely in his senses...and to talk of the technology...it was just fantastic...the moment he landed a sigh of relief spread all over the cab of the experts as well as we the spectators...the whole fall right from the first step was telecasted live on the net...
  but the worst part was that i had to watch it on the net n the indian news channels were busy in some other unneccessary political chat telecasts...the hopeless channels didn't even bother to share the breaking news for the day....but at least IBN's contribution towards the spectatorial aid was really mentionable...though on the net..
    Felix Baugartner is someone who can be compared with Hanuman who fictionally reached the sun for the sake of having the largest mango...and when Hanuman returned, he could be similized with Felix....so Baumgartner's freefall can be compared to hanuman's returning after the misunderstanding or whatever we can call it..but this really proves that the olden mythology might be true..
    but the first question that hits my brain is that am i in my senses... am i in the dreams...whats the matter..i pinch up myselves everytime i think of this unimaginable happening...does Baumgartner come under the heading homo sapiens...wasn't Felix scared to perform such an act...did Felix think twice before jumping...how would he have felt at that time...was he in his senses...i am as puzzled as every guy in this universe....
      but whatsoever we ask that guy...will he have the time to answer such stupifying questions...who knows...but the busy guy's will and strength is something of which he can make big bones of...the down to the earth formula one racer is just like Alice in the Wonderland..

  1. Seriously,Indian media is at its worst nowadays. In fact it didn't amaze me when I didn't see even a name of Felix in most of a news channels. You better mention IBN for providing quick live streaming link to us. No wonder,Felix would be a pure research material for scientists around the world for few days.
