Dear GYA, As you've probably heard, I'll attempt to skydive from space on Sunday. I bet you're, like, "That jump is gonna take forever, brah. How are you gonna combat all that the boredom?" ---Well, brah, my training regimen included watching the entire second series of Downton Abbey so I think I'm more than ready. Anyway, the jump is still a few days out -- anything good this weekend? - Felix Baumgartner
