Dead Ringers hits the nail on the head. Start at 2 mins 25 seconds for the Branson clip.
I either read or heard the decision to send Branson into Space being viewed as backtesting to see if it was still safe to fire dogs and monkeys into orbit.
Hank Scorpio in the Simpsons was a parody of Richard Branson
Bezos, Branson and a leopard all in the cockpit would definitely get the ratings up.
No pilot, Co pilot or flight engineer, fully automated flight. Bezo’s answer to Tesla ?
I suppose he couldn’t make his mind up between orbit and her bit.
He borrowed that from Flesh Gordon
I reckon bezos has fucked over a lot more people though
upon landing Bezos apparently said
After touching down, Mark Bezos said: “I am unbelievably good.”
Much more like
“Hey Alexa, deploy the parachutes”
“Sorry I didn’t find a device named parachutes”
“Playing parachutes by Coldplay on spotify”
Fitting end for him
Looks like a dildo with delta wings.
