Drugstore.com has a very odd promo going on.  Odd in a cool, David Bowie Space Oddity sort of way.

I’m not sure why they’re featuring this, or how they managed to get a discount price, but heck if you like spaceflight, weightlessness and making $35,000 purchases online then today is your lucky day.

You can purchase a parabolic weightless flight for 10 provided by Zero-G for a mere $35Gs.  That’s more thank $10,000 off the price if you were to buy 10 seats through Zero-G themselves and is a slightly insane thing to purchase over the web.  Insanely cool that is.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. Wow, it even had a review:
    One of my friends bought …
    “by Rebecca in Seattle, WA on 8/10/07
    One of my friends bought this for me when I turned 35. At first I thought it would be lame but it totally ROCKED. I loved being weightless! I never thought I would be able to create memories like this. Thank You Zero-G!”

    Hmm I must be a horrible friend. The closest I’ll come to giving you guys this experience is by tossing you all in a swimming pool maybe, or rigging a scale to read ‘0’ when you step on it. Seriously, 35k??? And who thinks, “For my friends birthday I bet they’d really want to be weightless for once their fat a$$ life…” I mean seriously, ouch.
