Today, my college class was talking about Felix Baumgartner, who jumped from the edge of space down to earth. A boy suddenly put his head up and said in a serious tone, "I thought he jumped from the moon?" Several girls concurred. This is my generation. FML

It doesn't matter what the news says, 53 is right. The stratosphere extends to about 50 kilometres above ground. The exosphere (exiting the atmosphere), thins out into outer space at about 1800 kilometres above ground. He was about 1750km off the edge of space...ALMOST THERE

I too feel sorry for humanity and I question our ability to survive. There should be mandatory IQ and commonsense testing before people ate allowed to reproduce

Maybe 134 does not have any social media network. Good thing too, anyway just to make it short 134, he's a real guy who skydives, and he holds the record for highest skydive. And next time you can always just google it. The more you know, the more you know.

Not everyone depends on social media =/. Since when do we judge humanity on their knowledge of semi-cool but ultimately pointless and trivial events??

Next time someone doesn't know that Eric "The Storage Container" Smith just ate a 25lb cheeseburger in an hour, I'll swear humanity is going straight downhill.

At 153 ummm yeah you're right. This fucking generation. SMH. I bet you do your research papers from Wikipedia if you get your news from Facebook.

I'm curious how many people thumbed this comment for the sake of it sounds smart so they can jump on the band wagon vs how many people actually understand it in regards to the FML.

If it takes around 32 hours to complete a 4,000 mile dive imagine a 240,000 mile dive. If i did my math correctly, it would take over 80 days. Damn.

Edit: I didn't plug in 32ft/s/s so I'm not sure.

Yeah...because if they are pretty they might actually find someone to be with, and have kids...these people reproducing is going to be sooo marvelous!!

Brains beats beauty when it comes to common sense, such as this FML. Most pretty girls get thru life by solely their looks. One day, they wake up, realize their man has traded them in for a much younger, prettier girl than her and that once-upon-a-time-very-pretty-girl is just an old hag now.
