People who go on shows or podcasts to talk about their own life are generally even less so.

Seen below: A man putting his best foot forward to fool people.

Best foot, indeed - in his mouth, maybe. Once again, not doing himself any favors *at all* with NASA or the SEC there...

Plus, taking a psychotropic drug like weed does most certainly by no means imply that in his altered state of mind he spoke with complete objectivity or candor, to put it mildly - Pot ain't exactly Pentothal, from what I gather.

Would be marching to the beat of his own drum, if he didn't detest marching to any drumbeat at all so much.

You really missed the point.

It doesn't really matter if inaccuracies are uttered because
- the speaker is too addled to spot the truth if he stumbled over it and it bit him in the arse OR
- the speaker is consciously trying to fool his audience

I think you are spot on, Martin.

Isn't it just amazing how so many love to judge thoses who accomplish what only the judger can dream.  Talent comes in all kinds of packages.  Some you like, some you don't, but nevertheless appreciate the genius.

The next launch attempt for #NewShepard #NS10 mission will be Jan 21. We’ve fixed our ground infrastructure issue and both the vehicle and weather look good. Stay tuned for launch timing. Live webcast will be on http://blueorigin.com  #GradatimFerociter http://bit.ly/2HhFcmn

Some detail on future plans in this article.

New Shepard makes 10th launch as Blue Origin aims to fly humans late in 2019

Quote
For Blue Origin, the company's first flight of its reusable New Shepard system in more than six months served a dual purpose. It provided additional test data for the launch system as the company moves closer to crewed flights, and the launch allowed the company to fly eight NASA-sponsored research and technology payloads into space through NASA’s Flight Opportunities program.

Bezos emphasizes altitude advantage of New Shepard over SpaceShipTwo

Quote
NEW YORK — As Blue Origin prepares to start flying people on its New Shepard suborbital vehicle, the company’s founder says the altitude the vehicle can reach will put it at an advantage over Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo.

In an on-stage interview with SpaceNews during a Wings Club luncheon here Feb. 20, Jeff Bezos reiterated statements made by other Blue Origin executives that the company expects to start flying people on New Shepard later this year.

“This is the first time that I’ve ever been saying ‘this year,’” he said of those plans. “For a few years I’ve been saying ‘next year.’”
