Seeing him speak is so off putting, it's like the most bullied kid in school has somehow got himself into a position and now thinks everythings turning up Ed :lol:

It's a battle between how much everyone hates the torries and can we really tolerate such a wab getting votes for labour

 

Too much to ask you have someone intelligent who doesn't sound like a wuss/or a snobby fucker out to bend over "the little people"

"On Monday, October 7th, Grasshopper completed its highest leap to date, rising to 744m altitude. The view above is taken from a single camera hexacopter, getting closer to the stage than in any previous flight.

Grasshopper is a 10-story Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle designed to test the technologies needed to return a rocket back to Earth intact. While most rockets are designed to burn up on atmosphere reentry, SpaceX rockets are being designed not only to withstand reentry, but also to return to the launch pad for a vertical landing. The Grasshopper VTVL vehicle represents a critical step towards this goal.

Grasshopper consists of a Falcon 9 rocket first stage tank, Merlin 1D engine, four steel and aluminum landing legs with hydraulic dampers, and a steel support structure."

 

This video just blew my mind.
