That shot has been on for the last hour since i started watching, just figured out that circle in the screen is a lens flare

Edit: scrub that its not a lens flare its moving about independently

So has this happened yet or is there still a delay? I don't know which dot I'm supposed to be looking at

Oh he's still on the ground? I thought he was one of those dots in the sky

Oh, that must be the capsule that's on that yellow crane?

Damn you Felix!

As if giving up being a mod wasn't bad enough, now you're making us wait even longer to see you chuck yourself out of a space capsule!

During university I worked in a bar. One night I drank two cans of red bull with a spoon of raw coffee.

Fucking idiot.

If anyone's still interested, this appears to be happening in the next ten minutes. There's a 'stand by' sign and a countdown and everything.

I know these things are hard to judge, but having spent the five minutes before it started broadcasting staring at "Please stand by - starting soon", I'm not convinced these people appreciate the concept of a countdown...

He appears to be in the pod and the pod is on a crane as it has been for the last 15 minutes. I get the impression if it happens I will watch the recording as it looks like it may be a bit of a paint drying experience.

Not that this thing can explode (presumably), but seeing the guy's mother in tears as he rises into the air suddenly made me think of the Challenger launch
