So all you need to be a badass is shave your head, grow a goatee and wear a hat. Not sure if cooking meth is required.

I know that the Columbus and Wright brothers panels are wrong, I wouldn't be surprised if the others were too.

Maybe Columbus could be replaced by Otis Eugene Ray.

Not so much the book, but the article. Great commentary such as:

Quote:
The second event is this month’s publication of Bleeding Edge, Pynchon’s ninth book and his first to take on the Internet as a major subject, Bleeding Edge is set in Silicon Alley in 2001, after the dot-com collapse and through the events of September 11 (referred to here as “11 September”). In structure, it’s another shaggy-dog detective story, in the style of Crying of Lot 49 or Inherent Vice. Private investigator Maxine Tarnow starts sniffing around a web company whose wunderprick CEO has been snapping up cheap fiber and whose partner is mysteriously murdered. Meanwhile, she’s getting back together with her ex-husband while carrying on dalliances with a government assassin and a foot fetishist, and a videographer-friend of hers has weird footage of what appears to be some kind of 9/11 precursor, and there’s some guy with an insanely accurate sense of smell.

The plot is picaresque and fun, but not particularly essential and occasionally exhausting. But then again, as Publishers Weekly aptly puts it, “reading Pynchon for plot is like reading Austen for sex,” and where Bleeding Edge really shines is in its evocation of the age and its sense of collapse. Take this description of a Y2K-themed party on the night of September 10, in which an insta-nostalgic celebration of an avoided disaster plays as unknowing prologue to a fast-approaching one: “The theme of the gathering, officially ‘1999,’ has a darker subtext of Denial. It soon becomes clear that everybody’s pretending for tonight that they’re still in the pre-crash fantasy years, dancing in the shadow of last year’s dreaded Y2K, now safely history, but according to this consensual delusion not quite upon them yet, with all here remaining freeze-framed back at the Cinderella moment of midnight of the millennium when in the next nanosecond the world’s computers will fail to increment the year correctly and bring down the Apocalypse.”

on closer inspection i think he was actually trying to mimic the shuttle functioning, with the fuel tank and srbs separating from the orbiter

Got stuck on the launch rod somehow.

The ejection charge blew the orbiter off just like it was supposed to.
Looks like he was gonna RC the orbiter in glide phase. That must be a pretty sophisticated model.
I would have expected some kind of parachute on the fuel tank, tho.
