Hey,

There is a special Zero G flight going out of Miami on October 31st and I have the chance to extend a group rate to anybody interested in coming along for that flight. I have had several magicians tell me they would love to do this, so I thought I would let you guys know about this opportunity. I know it's short-ish notice, but it really is the most fun thing I have ever done in my life, so I was excited they let me extend the group rate to other people I know.

So, if anyone is interested, drop me a line or visit gozerog.com. Just make sure they know you want to be part of my "group."

could do so VERY angly coin concealment stuff when they just float there.

BTW...is there an equivalent to the "mile high club" for that kind of flight too?

According to the website, zero G is sustained for 20-30 seconds at a time, so if you can last that long, you could join that "club."

That requirement plus your partner not minding performing in public.

And there is a good reason they've always called the NASA training plane "The Vomit Comet."

Enjoy the ride Brad!

Actually, that nickname is no longer applicable.

NASA would subject their passengers to 40 or 50 parabolas on a single trip, further they astronauts would be engaged in very focused activities - so it's rather like reading in a car. The other reason people get sick is the shock to their system - that "stomach drop" you get on a roller coaster. To combat this Zero G Corp introduces you to weightlessness with Martian and Lunar parabolas, so you experience 1/3 and 1/6th your body weight before going full Zero G.

And then there's the drug - Scoplamine.

yumm.

I flew two years ago. No one on our flight got sick. We were all exhausted after. (And I think Weber was a little queasy after curling up in a ball and being spun around relentlessly as a levitating top), but sickness is not an issue.

So - come on out and fly with us.

I would if I could, believe me. And 1/3 my body weight is a dream come true!
