Why, oh why, does every camera operator aim the camera away just when things get interesting.

dude, you need to prove you did 20.8, I did 22 with a running start and I doubt you can shave that much off :)

There were two witnesses. Whipple and Junior. I'd gladly do it again.

C-R-A-S-H?

I'm assuming that was the *CRASH* that we heard while sitting in the exec briefing meeting :)

You should have a license to operate those things!

No, that was a separate incident. I think I've crashed it 4 or 5 times now. Just testing its limits.

Hrm guess my mplayer and vlc are too out of date. Neither seems to find a video in the file.
