Moby linked to this article about Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, and his plan for the recently acquired 165,000 acres in West Texas. “Over the next 30 to 40 minutes, Simpson said Bezos told him the goal of his venture – known as Blue Origin – was to send a spaceship into orbit that launches and lands vertically, like a rocket.” Huh. Not sure what to make of this.
In unrelated news, did anyone else know that there’s a movie coming out this summer based on the television show The Honeymooners? It stars Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden and Mike Epps as Ed Norton.
