    Is this the same JAL, national carrier that has had severe financial difficulties for decades? Not surprising really, if that is their investment profile.

    You'd rather believe someone who does 2500 in under a year because that gives you credibility? Good God, you really are dense

    That, Skidmark, is the perfect description of you. You post bizarre claims, don't back them up yet double down on them. You have the least 'right' to judge anyone negatively

    Because mobile phones were made for business, not the wealthy.

    Good God, you are thick. Really, stop talking about things you know nothing of.

    Hookers and rape are more down your alley - keep discussing those topics

    How many threads is skidmark being called retarded, stupid, moronic, or simply an imbecile? Just digging bigger holes.

    Amongst all the good folk, I have always thought that there were some morons on TD, but you take the biscuit. It is one of the reasons I do not post very often. I have zero interest in getting into the shitfights that are everywhere on the forum. I have a life. If you do not believe me , I just could not care less - you win.

    I won't put you on ignore, as I don't see the need or point.

    I will end with a bit of advice for you - Itís better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt. You appear to have a major problem with that.

    Have a nice life. Hopefully you will grow up one day.
    In the meantime go fcuk yourself

    Smile

    I haven't been on Concorde.

    I cannot prove this because I don't have a picture of me not on Concorde. I have actually travelled on a train, but again cannot prove this as I do not have a picture of me on a train.

    The Concorde was a pretty big deal. Most average people who got to fly on it , had pictures and some memory of it.

    It's not really something you just casually blurt out on TeakDoor forum.

    Flying the Concorde was a way bigger deal than flying Super first class residential suite on an Etihad A380.

    If I told anyone I flew Concorde or Etihad super first class , I'd expect ppl to challenge me on it

    Anyway here's the CEO of Boom with after the JAL deal. Basically JAL went for it because if it works , first mover advantage is going to be huge. Boom made an offer to JAL and told them, if you aren't interested, we are going straight over to the competition with the same offer.

    The CEO explains the whole deal in this podcast 12: Blake Scholl—Mach II with Your Hair on Fire - Flux (podcast) | Listen Notes

    I enjoyed that trip too. Pity I was the only one there with a camera as I ended up taking all the photos and now I don't have one of me on the moon! Darn! No proof for me!!

    Unfortunately, I was alone in the command module, so I didn't have anyone to take a picture of me.

    Why you did not ask Stanley Kubrick to snap a shot?

    Back in the day, it was not common for everyone to own, let alone to carry a camera.

    Maybe Happy As Larry has a sketch or a brass rubbing connected to his trip?

    --EDIT--

    I just remembered that I sat on the Julian Assange prosecution (no cameras allowed).

    Here is the proof.
