Don't know for sure, but I suspect that a few brews couldn't even compare to the buzz from looking down at ol earth from orbit.

Well, yes, a fine porter (or two) can certainly place one in orbit, not to mention rendering one bullet proof and invisible. I stand corrected. :D

On a personal note tho (to Sam), my old man served 25+ years in the Air Force Weather Service. Some of my earliest (and strangely fondest) memories are of standing out in the middle of grass fields having my nads eaten off by chiggers and "helping" the old man launch weather balloons. So to Sam, and my old man. Salut!

I'd be interested to know more about your Pop....I've been in the career field for almost 15 years....when did he retire?
