I was debating whether or not to ask.
Dont think about it in future just do it (report button), something like that only takes seconds and we are happy to do it.
My concern was, if I changed the title of the thread would it get lost or mis-understood in the mix?

If It happens again I'll ask for a correction, and post an explanation, I'll know better next time John.

I watched it earlier, he's got some guts to do that I think his family had a few heart stopping moments but well done to him, crazy bugger.

One needs to watch Dwarf's youtube to experience the full effect.

Pay attention at 1:49, 1:50 of the video.



And then watch as Felix grows smaller as he falls...

"According to preliminary data", Mach 1.24 or 833.9 MPH.

Thanks Derek, that would be amazing to accelerate to 833MPH in about 45 seconds, without a feeling of G-force.
