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 seems they don't understand the gravity of the situation.

if that was the case, screw jumping back to Earth. i don't want to live on this planet anymore anyway.

So you base humanity off of a couple of dumbasses?

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Well okay, whatever you guys say. :p

53- the news always says "edge of space".

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

Assuming is one thing. Stating someothing not possible in the world of physics.

Is this a book or like actual news like a guy jumpin from a plane down to earth.. I'm slightly confused

134 - He rode a flying dragon AROUND the moon and then jumped from the Death Star to Earth. And sure, it was book.

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

I must ask -134 do you live under a rock? It's only been on every social networking site media etc... Ohhh this generation

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.

153, 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.


I just don't even know how to feel anymore.

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

Agreed flockez I kind of posted the same comment without reading first like a dumbass but agreed.

I had to Google this person, but even before that, logic tells me jumping from the moon is impossible to survive as the atmosphere would burn him... smh that's just sad...

^If you tried to jump from the moon to earth, you would land back on the moon.

When he jumped it wasn't really from the edge of space either. The atmosphere is thicker then how high he was.

Well, when you use 'then', it isn't actually 'than' either.

I don't usually comment, but wow. Just wow. The atmosphere would absolutely not be the problem with jumping from the moon.

164 but I thought gravity only existed on earth!

The lack of pressure in space would implode him first( he goes fat then pops). It's also humanly impossible to jump that far even on the moon

Are you ******* kidding me? Other planets and moons have gravity. The moon just has less gravity than earth. Jesus.

It seems they don't understand the gravity of the situation.

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.

They were thumbing it up because of the funny pun.

BellaBelle_fml 23

You think only 'smart' people would understand the pun about gravity in relation to the FML? You don't think very highly of people do you?

-94 stupider is not a word. Try dumber or more stupid, THEN try to call everyone else stupid.

@101 Stupider is a form of stupid, so yes, it is a word.

mduffy08 8

104 - Well man, I guess you are more stupid than the other guy. =)

CaptainDoorknob 7

That was probably one of the best puns I've read on this site.

"Stupider is a form of stupid, so yes it is a word". That made my day. Thank you.

GuessWhatKids 13

Since we're talking about space and who is "stupider"; Girls go to Jupiter to get more stupider, boys go to Mars to get more smart ;)

Horstradamus 6

Look who's 'stupider' now. Because, my dumb friend, it is a legitimate word.

And to think, it actually gets worse.

Yes....yes it will because they are going to breed if they haven't already *shudders*.

hotPinklipstick 24

I fear for our future because of ignorant people like this.

No, I'm loving this! Increases my odds of a scholarship!

That's been said in every generation before

6: You only need to worry if they get elected president.

I wonder what their thought process for this was.

130,000 feet, 240,000 miles. Same thing.

KiddNYC1O 20

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!!

siickman 7

Last thing we need is dumb females reproducing young into the world to make more dumb people... 0.0

Well if they're pretty, they'll at least be easy on the eyes, and not hard on the mind AND eyes

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.
