Out of the Blue

It took a while to act on the inspiration the change of seasons brought, but last night I fired up the first batch of chili of the autumn, and it's currently finishing on the stove after about 15 hours of cooking. After several batches in a row that were on the milder side (only by comparison, as they were still very hot), this time around it is positively nuclear. The path to this outcome started when I had a conversation with the farmer at the farm stand about his habaneros that I was buying, where he explained that they were not as hot as you'd expect because of the colder weather they were exposed to before being picked. This helped my decision to include some of the dried ghost peppers we have on hand, and since the batch of wings I made with one of them was edible, I decided I could use three of them in seven pounds of meat, since they are hardly larger than raisins. So a dozen "mild" habaneros and three "tiny" dried ghost peppers (okay, and a can of chipotles) have resulted in an extremely hot chili, which looking back over this sentence, should not be as surprising as all that.

He was talking nearly delirious right before he jumped too, slurred speech and slow reaction time... we may never know. And given that he fell 20 seconds less in freefall than Kittinger something must have definitely been wrong in a major way, the tumble after the jump was also pretty weird...

I am actually a bit surprised at the complete lack of technical post coverage, yeah he landed, but that jump was not proper for some reason. He should have been flying a good 20 seconds LONGER than Kittinger, not less. Just by height difference alone. And he never tumbled before in the test jumps.

SPOILER ALERT:


Felix made it.


Pretty damn cool! Was going to be a bummer if something happened to him.

Saw Argo today, and it was decent, even though I think they hollywooded up the story a bit. On my way out, I saw two young kids playing dig dug. Brought back a lot of memories (of me playing it) and it was cool to see a new generation interested it.


He came pretty close I think. He was spinning out of control at one point, then a bit later he said he felt like he was passing out. He also seemed to acting a bit weird during the pre-jump checks. Something was definitely going on.
