    In all seriousness, that's a pretty ballsy of a "fuck you" move on Bezos' part. Musk has managed to do all kinds of shit with his rockets, but he's never flown on one, and Branson said he'll take the first commercial Virgin Galactic flight, but that hasn't happened yet. Presumably, the others will match the dickwaving gauntlet that has been thrown down.

    I felt like one of those redneck trailer trash NASCAR fans, watching Richard Branson last week and Jeff Bezos today.

    All I wanted to see was some really good crashes and 'splosions. :(
