TODAY I FLEW around the world as fast as I could, to see what it was like. (No, I didnít turn back time.) Went around twice in seven hours. Seven long hours.

My impressions:

Air friction sucks. I had to climb pretty damn high, pretty much into space, to get anywhere with any real speed.

Forget about breathing. You gotta hold your breath and go for it, and thatís not as fun as it sounds.

Street clothes will strip right off a body on reentry, and I am scrubbed raw. Now slathered in aloe.

It's good to push myself sometimes.
