Looks Fun!

Reminds me of the late Roman Empire, where vast sums were spent on glorification of the elite while the poor suffered.

Or maybe the end of the Russian Empire, where vast sums were spent on stupidities like Faberge eggs.

I don't think that's a real Faberge egg, it's too poorly crafted. Look at how uneven the top is. Look at how uneven the metal is on the legs. The glass (plastic?) frequently covers the gold.

Lol, maybe it is a real one and all those Russian peasants were exploited for an inferior product.

I saw real ones in a museum and they do look surprisingly shabby for all the hype around them.

However, "space" has been dumbed down a bit. Branson only went 50 miles up, while edge of space is typically described at 62 miles. To be true space pioneers, they should be looking at at least one Earth orbit. Even so, private space fight took place back in 2004, and actually went above that 62 miles:

The guy is so full of shit it's not even funny.

"Let's pretend it's WWIII"? OK, shithead, what happened to all non-essential shit last time we had a World War? That's right, it was banned (as manufacturing of private cars, for example) or commandeered (as pleasure yahts snd such). Nobody gets to play private rocketman in a World War.
